....Do you know ANYTHING about the monarchy in the UK?...they have no governing power. at all.
They simply exist as an archaic tourist attraction, a novelty of sorts.

Would your new system incorporate a devolved english government. i think this would be a good option as well as bringing in more London styled mayors.

This is not strictly true. The Queen still has power of royal assent meaning the crown must sign off on any law passed in the UK. If there was something she didn't like, she has the power to reject it whether parliament voted for it or not. Unfortunately though the Queen is too lazy to use this veto power and simply lets her ministers do whatever the hell they like with the country. As far as I'm aware she also still has the power to disolve parliament. So yes, the Queen does have power, she just never uses it.
