Is there any way in which I can buy an Island and proclaim my own kingdom? There will be a vacancy for "Minister of coconut affairs" if anybody is interested. I'd Love to be king!

I don't agree however with rejoining the UK monarchy. I respect Queen Elizabeth but we would need someone who could represent and embody our culture, customs, traditions, language etc. That's the role of a monarch right? And I'm afraid Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William just... wouldn't work...

Sadly a restoration of Monarchy in the Irish Republic is as likely as Madonna joining an enclosed convent

At least a small region of the Philippines will become a federation of monarchies again.

With the peace agreement between the Muslim rebels and the Philippine government (which is mostly Christian) finally signed, the minority Muslim regions will be given autonomy. As a result, the various Sultans of the Muslim regions (called Bangsamoro state) of the Philippines will be officially reinstated. So at least a small region of the Philippines will become a federation of monarchies again.

For sure!

Sorry Ocean80, but that would not happen -a break from the union would need to happen in order to restore the monarchy as it would be going against everything fought fir and everything the US itself stands for. Would/could not happen. Republican form of government (as stated in article four) is the only way to go if they stay in the union.

This is an interesting thread . . . I would love to read more opinions on this subject. I do not know much about the situation in Iran before the current state of affairs, in school I met many Iranians and they were very lovely people. I have also followed news over the years about the Pahlavi's and enjoy seeing the family of Reza Pahlavi II. What is the level of acceptance of the royal family at this point? Another country of interest is France. It would be so awesome to bring back a modern style of monarchy to France. I think we are seeing that the current monarchies are working hard to find a useful place among their people and cultures and are focusing on giving back. Somehow having the stability of an institution (with accountability of course) apart from a democratic form of government (that is one choicen by the majority) has some appeal particularly in today's rapid changing world.

How about Hungary? I see that its constitution was recently changed to remove reference to it as a republic.

I'm not aware of any movement to restore a monarchy in Hungary, but maybe there is?

Not one of the front-line British royals but a more minor one who embraces Ireland as their home could work - it did for Norway when a Danish prince and his British princess bride were invited to take that position and made a success of it. I suspect they were more successful than sending a Danish prince to Greece simply because there was already some common culture between the Danish prince and Norway. So a member of the royal family such as Lord Nicholas Windsor - great-grandson of a King and RC who would have some understanding of Irish culture could work if both sides were prepared to give him a chance. The ones you mention are too essentially English.

IMO many Eastern-European and Balkan countries have a great chance to become a monarchy again. Especially Romania, Albania and Serbia, Montenegro.

I'd be very surprised by the restoration of a European Monarchy in this economic climate,but who knows what may happen in the future!

Looking at how the former houses are courted or not explicit denied their right to represent the country, does let me think a monarchy restoration isn´t far-fetched.

I see neither any possibility nor any necessity nor any relavance of any republic becoming a monarchy now or in future.
The age is simply over..
Today all people want is a job and some peace. And some gossip and entertainment.
They have governments to do the former, and celebrities to do the latter.
How will a powerless constitutional monarch help here.
And how my country is "represented" outside is least of the common man's worries..
They have crossed the stage where they will madly wave or deeply bow or curtsey just because someone, whose great...great-something has once ruled a land where they now live, has been now crowned and proclaimed their monarch.

Man's will decides the future, not the 'times.' Time ist abstract and irrelevant. If a Monarchy serves the greater purpose of the people, then perhaps it ist the Republic that should die away. The superficial und consummerist ideology you have presented ist utterly repugnant und contrary to human nature. Mankind wants to believe that they are a part of something greater than themselves. Und judging by the behaviors of modern governments today, Saint Thomas Aquinas' words 'On Kingship,' stand eternally true,"Tyranny is wont to occur not less but more frequently on the basis of polyarchy [rule by many, i.e. oligarchy or democracy] than on the basis of monarchy."

Just come out into the real world and see. It is this superficial and consumerist ideology that runs the world. Looks and money only matters, for persons, families and nations..

And I dont agree with you that oligarchy is equivalent to democracy. No way.
And basically almost all "monarchists" hoping for return here in TRF are for constitutional monarchy, not absolute one. All they want is a good RF which can smile and wave and symbolise and unify them, not rule them. So your quotation doesnt hold good here.
