"Is there anyone writing anything worth reading on the actual constitutional role of the monarch within the context of EU governance "
There most certainly is! For some years now one John Bingley has been writing clear, soundly researched, factual information about the British Constitution in general, and in particular as it relates to the succession of treacherous EU 'treaties' and the role of HMG.
Once clinching argument re the worn out claim that HMQ "must" accept the advice of ministers is as follows:
"The Monarch will accept the advice of ministers, but nevertheless (he/she) is under clear constitutional restraint not to accept that which is plainly unconstitutional, which of course should not be proffered in the first place."
And of course cricket is similarly played fairly. I'm tired of my country's constitution being made up on the hoof by people whose main aim is not to scare the horses, ie change the status quo away from their interests. I want a constitution where sovereignty resides with the individual citizen and is delegated upwards to government. A written constitution setting out the bare bones would be complemented by compulsory referendums. The Head of State would still be selected from Joint Helicopter Command.
