Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU contains 7 constitutional monarchies: Belgium, Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

In terms of national and international branding only, my guess is that most of the European monarchies offer a good return on investment. They also offer a national perception of permanence and continuity in contrast to the impermanence of cyclical political power.

The Murdoch dynastic aspirations have been an attempt to combine the two opposites.
