The RN and parts of the commonwealths military forces just done an exercise together and they preformed fantastically.

Culturally and historically we haven't much choice, our nations were borne of the British Empire. Although our poltical and economic systems may be simillar (if not exactly the same), for decades we have moved in seperate directions, and we will continue to move in different directions.
Of all the political and economic possiblities the least likely is that ties between Commonwealth nations will remain strong. Whether or not Great Britain gravitates towards the US or EU, or whether Australia establishes closer links to Asia, or remains a US puppet-state. The Commonwealth will become nothing more than an acknowledgement of our shared heritage ( how "shared" it is is up for debate though).

the thought of a united Eurasia is so utterly profound to me! if only.
as for the Commonwealth, i'm sure there would be implications if the British lost their monarchy as head of state.
i believe the principle of the Commonwealth will stay unchanged, and one would hope they stick together in their inherent interests (the key declarations), exogenous 'unions' aside. but with most things, only time will tell.
