Lol, the monarchy still exists.
Hey Americans, it’s the Queen’s Speech on Wednesday!
It's possible that you may have some questions about this.

Questions like “why would I have heard of something that happens in the UK? » or “what the fuck is a Queen’s Speech? »

Also, people listen to the Queen? That doesn’t sound very American. Isn’t it, like, 2016?
These are excellent questions, America!
Basically, the Queen’s Speech is the thing that happens at the opening of the U.K.’s parliament every year. It is a cornerstone of British democracy, and as such it makes absolutely no sense.
