I believe Edward the VIII was forced out because he was a seditious Nazi, and not because of his relationship with a divorcee, which was the story they went with because it was "romantic" to give up his seat on the throne for love, lol.

I think we know why Queen Elizabeth is the longest reigning monarch of England and the world. It doesn't have the power that it used to have. Democracy has made monarchy obsolete. That's progress.
Though some might say that such power now lies with the wealthy and with corporations, Certainly an argument can be made that such interests seek to return to aristocracy, except instead through law, through deregulated capitalism.
