I didnt answer your question. I suppose we could have learned to stop worrying and love our foreign royals but I find it unlikely. Ok... not "foreign" because they had been around for a while.

Only in the far right do you find people who yearn for the king. The ex-king still tries to sell himself as the king of Greece (although he does not interfere almost at all with Greek issues), attends the royal weddings etc. There is enough trouble with the church intervening with secular issues, I cant imagine how it would be having the king and his cohorts around. Losing the royals was a deliverance as far as I am concerned.
