SLC and Monarchy

Not sure if this should be under Confessions, History, or Politics

I know a number of people here subscribe to the Solemn League and Covenant. Just a curiosity about this passage:

"THE SOLEMN LEAGUE AND COVENANT, for reformation and defence of religion, the honour and happiness of the King, and the peace and safety of the three kingdoms of Scotland, England, and Ireland."

Do the RPCNA and other Covenanter groups take a position on monarchism? The SLC seems to be strongly so. Are those who believe it is still binding in favor of a royal restoration? Does this have anything to do with the old Covenanter stance of not voting in the US? (Other than the fact that the US was never an openly Christian nation.)

If so, should HM Queen Elizabeth be our Empress? How about Emperor Francis? (Duke Franz of Bavaria, the Catholic Jacobite/Stuart heir).
