The pressure of having two Monarchs, and the tension between (Cambria and
England have most in common religiously and legally, but separate
hierarchies) and (England and Scotland have the same monarch but different
religion and laws).
I think that constitutional monarchy has already arrived in England and
Kemr at least by 1805. Scotland is still theoretically closer to absolutism,
but in practice an absolute King can't be absolute unless he's close to the
scene of the action, and the King of Scotland (though Scots as can be,
by descent) spends most of his time in London.
