Your a mite wrong in your answer there. All Runnymede was the barons at that time making the king sign a
charter not to persecute them for their wrong doings.
What you really must look at to see the clipping of the English monarchy is Oliver Cromwell and the English civil war. The king at the time thought he
could force his rule by divine right, but he was wrong and paid for it with his head.
After a period of time some monarchists wanted the return of a king so the then government invited Charles son to become king, which he did, but under
a ruling still in force today that the monarchy is just a figurehead.
That Paraphi is what happened in the simplest terms, if you look into it it's a lot more involved. So when all these silly people keep spouting that
the English Queen is the power you can tell them that she really has no power at all but what the government lets her have.
