The Royal Family is a living national symbol or logo that is resolutely independent of politics. This separation provides a continuity not possible with the rapidly changing offices of the US President or other elected government heads.

The US Head of State changes every four years. But the British Head of State is The Queen and her reign endures until she dies. While America is viewed as dynamic, modern, but a fickle place, the UK is seen as a bit old-fashioned but reliable.
