The British monarch is also the head of state of Canada, which was once part of the United Kingdom. The Canadian prime minister thinks it should stay that way.

The Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau has spoken out against the abolition of the monarchy in his country. The system of parliamentary monarchy offers "extraordinary stability," Trudeau told BBC Radio 4 on Monday. "We have an exceptional governor general who embodies the best of Canadians and we have a crown overseeing what is happening, sometimes from a comfortable distance." The system is well balanced and serves Canadians very well, Trudeau said on the sidelines of Queen Elizabeth II's state funeral in London.

The British monarch is also the head of state Canada, which was once part of the United Kingdom. Most recently, a good half of the residents indicated in surveys that they wanted to change the form of government.

Trudeau said he first met the Queen over 40 years ago when his father Pierre was Prime Minister. "I'm going to miss her terribly, I'm still processing it." It's strange being in London and not being able to meet the Queen. The Prime Minister said his relationship with the Queen was "extraordinary". "I was able to keep them up to date on what's happening in Canada, but also just have real, deep, thoughtful conversations about global affairs."
