    Andorra is a principality between France and Spain. It's know for ski resorts, it's tax heaven status, and carefree shopping. As per Google

    And apparently for its government's requirement that its leader be Christian.

    I think convention still dictates that the UK monarch is protestant rather than Catholic. (It dates back to the english civil war and the glourious revolution of 1688 with conflicts over the divine right of kings and parliamentary soverignty. It was why the brits chose George I as king from Hanover even though he couldn't speak a word of english.

    It is mentioned in the source that the UK has a religious requirement for its "Ceremonial Monarch". Specifically it styles the Queen as the "Defender of the Faith".
    Here's what it says about that.

    Why does she need to be Protestant? I thought the UK had their own version of Catholicism?

    True.However
    As far as I understand it, Protesantism IS their own version of Catholicism. The Queen is God's rep on Earth, just like the Pope is for Catholics.

    The conflict between protestants and catholics is often framed in terms of who they are loyal to. Bismarck launched the kulturekamphf against catholics because he thought they couldn't serve Germany and the Pope at the same time.

    The issue with the UK monarch is the same. As the head of the church of england and as the soverign from which Parliament gets its power- having a catholic on the throne would create a conflict of interest as the king or queen might accept the pope and the catholic church as a higher authority. As a constitutional monarchy, that probably isnt so much an issue now but the historical precedents of conflicts over the role of the monarch and their religion still stands.

    Oh, I thought the Church of England was more similar to Catholicism and distinct from Protestantism.

    It is much more similar than other protestants and some foreign Catholics have often confused a High Anglican Service with a Catholic one. The clergy wear vestments and some churches are or can be highly decorated. Some practice the Midnight Mass. It is a complex issue.

    The law requiring a British monarch to be of Anglican faith is a throwback to the centuries of religious unrest that arose from Catholic & Protestant monarchs trying to enforce their own faiths on their subjects and the ensuing violence & persecutions that followed. I suppose the Anglican requirement was a compromise as the Church of England is required to offer to provide services to everyone in England - possibly Wales too - regardless of whether they're Catholic or Protestant (and even if they're not Christian). This 'compromise' probably also forced the dogmatic conflicts out of the Monarchy for good.

    All that aside, the Church of England is basically Catholicism with divorce and a few other minor changes.

    You are not wrong. But the Coe is still independent from the Vatican, which is the main concern.

    The Queen of England is also an authority figure for the Church of Scotland, although I am not sure on how exactly.

    I like the semi-separation of church and state we have in e the US. We can get rid of them if they get out of hand.
