Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, it was mainly the absolute monarchs that were deposed. Had the interregnum not occurred and the British monarchy not been forced to become more of a constitutional monarch thereafter, the British monarchy may have gone the way of its counterparts.

Thoughts?

It's actually a myth that Britain never went the way of Europe and deposed its monarch via revolution, the Civil War was every bit as revolutionary and destructive as the respective revolutions on the continent, and it had the same effect, to subvert the power of the monarchy just enough to place limitations on its power, but not enough to rid it entirely.
