Unlike the Home Secretary, Theresa May, who comes in second position, the Queen does not make law nor does she have the capacity to directly change the Government’s policy. She doesn’t make cuts or structural changes at huge organisations like Moya Greene (who comes in at number 12), the chief executive of the very challenged Royal Mail – which will effect thousands of people’s livelihoods.

"It's very small, to be honest. The Queen is often referred to as a 'ceremonial' head of state, because she does not take executive decisions.

The monarchy, in theory, holds some significant powers. The monarch can appoint and dismiss the Prime Minister, for instance. But the PM requires a majority of support in the House of Commons, so, de facto the monarch must appoint the leader of the party which wins a majority, or, in the event that no party wins a majority, that who can form a governing coalition (which is what happened in the last election).

The Queen must give royal assent to every act of parliament, much like the US President, she must sign it. In theory she can veto any bill, but no sovereign has done this since 1708, though later monarchs have considered its use (generally only when they fear 'national disaster'). It is generally held in this day and age that a monarch withholding royal assent would be likely to create a constitutional crisis.

Once a week, the PM must meet with the Queen and update her on what the government is up to. She is said to often provide advice to the PM, but he is under no obligation to follow it.

At relatively regular intervals there is a ceremony known as the State Opening of Parliament opening each new session of parliament. Generally, this is a yearly event (though, for instance, the 2010-2 session lasted two years). The monarch gives a speech when she sets out what her government will do - essentially a list of bills, but these are the government's words, not her own.

In theory then, the power of the monarch is quite expansive, but in reality she is hemmed in by parliament, and by public opinion. The monarchy is very popular in Britain right now (~80% approval ratings), largely, I suspect, because the monarchy is seen as an apolitical institution, which provides stability and a link to the past. I suspect that if the monarchy were to become actively political you would see a much stronger republican movement."
