That's cool and nice to hear. We occasionally hear stories over on this side of the Atlantic about how younger Europeans living in constitutional monarchies are growing less and less interested in the idea of maintaining a royal system within their respective countries and don't like the pageantry and history as much as their parents and grandparents do, preferring freely elected heads of state. You never know if there will be people protesting the system.
We do have Republicans here who want to make The Netherlands a country with out a monarchy, but they are a very small group...
Most people aren't Monarchists but it's part of our identity...

Nobby: Dunno, Sarge. Freeing slaves, maybe?
Fred: Absol—well, okay.
