Well my research points to Paris but some sites say London, but nevertheless Queen or no Queen as head of state, people would still visit the UK, I visited London not because of the Queen and I am sure many visitors who go there would share that same feeling. Look you are a monarchist I am a republican, so we think differently regarding monarchs.

Do YOU really think that the UK would get anywhere near the tourist numbers they do each year...IF they didn't have all that historical heritage, pomp & ceremony, etc...of which the Royal Family is an integral part down through the ages.

That's not what I am saying, what I am saying is: Even if the Queen was not the head of state, the historical heritage will still be there and people would still visit. Regarding ceremony,  I don't think all of the visitors get to see any ceremony at all each time they visit the UK.
