Some are mere ceremonial heads but some are functional royal rulers with political powers at their disposal too.
The likes of Japan’s emperor and most monarchs in Europe are mere ceremonial heads who wield no power per say.
The Queen of England is in a class of her own. As much as she is more of a ceremonial head in Britain, she also wields power as ruler of some other countries of the world; often referred to as British realms.
