A Muslim? It would not be acceptable for a Muslim to be on the Throne. On the other hand, it would make being Head of the Church of England rather interesting. As regards having a Catholic on the Throne, Gombear sums it up nicely.
As I understand it, Government has so little of importance to occupy it at the moment, an "egalitarian" Monarchy is already on the "must do list". As tradition and precedent count for sod all these days, I suspect our discussion on this will become irrelevant. In the meantime, all the concern over who's the bestest friend of ones imaginary friend is most entertaining.
