A Question of Royalty

I have a question for our British Rinkydinks.

I don't know a whole lot about the British
political system. I know you have a parliament
and a prime minister who pretty much run the
country, and that you also have royalty who are
mainly just figureheads with celebrity status.
Is that correct?

But that's not my question. I've noticed that you
have a queen, and princes and princesses
and dukes and duchesses, etc. But no king.
Where's the king?

I know that Great Britain used to have a king.
Even earlier in the twentieth century, didn't you
have a king? But not anymore. Is it because
he died, but the queen is still alive that you
have a queen but no king? When the queen
does pass on, will you once again have a
king? (I would assume that Prince Charles
would ascend the throne.) Would you then
have a king but no queen? Is the queen not
allowed to remarry, or does she simply
choose not to?

Hrm. I should have said "I have several
inter-related questions..."
