A Monarchy is has a more supreme leader such as a king. In a Republic the power rests with the people.

*In a republic you have an elected president which is a member of a political party.

A president will have to follow a party political platform and to support the companies that sponsored their election campaign.

The president will have a political platform and a vision of development of the country.

After 4 or 5 years, the people will elect another president, with another vision and another political platform, so that in a republic, a president will never finish his plans.

That means, the country will never have a middle and long terms plan.

A president will never take care more of the people's standard of living, than the standard of gain of the sponsors.

A president will try to control the justice and the economy in his interests.

On the other hand, a monarch will always follow the interests of the subjects.

If the subjects are living bad, the monarch will be blamed. Not changing the head of state for a long period of time, you can say that you will have the possibility to say that you have a strong and consistent development of your country.

You will vote for the prime minister and you will vote for development plans. The direction of the development of your country and society will be given by the monarch and not by a president that will be the head of the state for only 4 years.

I can explain it in a more detailed manner, but this is the main idea of the difference between republic and Monarchy.

God save the Queen.

There are quite a few main differences between the two.

Firstly, a kingdom is run solely by a king. Although it is more widely said as a monarch, places ruled by a queen are actually matridoms. In a kingdom, the monarch has all the power. Most kingdoms used to operate on the fuedal system which was a system ran by fealty and power. An example of a kingdom was the kingdom of Laos before the civil war.

A republic, however, has no king and their leader is always elected. Republics are democracies and are in theory, ran by the people. These days, they are generally ran by a president. France, the Republic of Ireland and the U.S.A. are all republics

There is however, a cross between the two which is called a constitutinal monarchy. This has a monarch as a figurehead but they do not act as the ruling head of state. There is an elected government or parliament. These generally have prime ministers rather than presidents. How much power each person has in these is down to the circumstances or declarations. A notable constituntinal monarchy is the United Kingdom.

Hope I helped.

Usually, the distinction is based on whether the Head of State holds a monarchic title, like Queen/King, Emperor, Prince, Pope, or Grand Duke. In republics, the Head of State holds a non-monarchic title similar to President (though a President can also be a monarch, such as in the United Arab Emirates).

In theory, in a monarchy, the right to govern is a given and belongs to - or is represented by - the Head of State, while in a republic, it is somehow derived from the people. In practice, there is very little difference because in either case, the government can be anything from completely democratic to completely authoritarian, and many constitutional monarchies were created and are controlled through a democratic process.

Often, the basis for calling a country a republic is a pretense, such as in the case of a military coup "in the name of the people", where the people actually had little say in the change of government.

Monarchies are often associated with hereditary rule. This isn't truly a rule though, as there are elected monarchs (such as the Pope, or the former Holy Roman Emperor), and hereditary presidencies, where the President chooses a successor who is often a relative, as well as other means of succession in use in both monarchies and republics.

A monarchy's leader is different from a republic leader in various ways. Monarchical leadership is inherited unlike the one in a republic who is elected.

Difference between democratic government and republican government?

You are asking a familiar question in a new and intriguing manner. One that can lead to a better explanation. Usually we hear people say that "The United States of America (for example) is a republic and not a democracy." You ask; what is the difference? The word "republican" applies to the character of the nation state. A monarchy, for example, is not a republic. Saudi Arabia is a Monarchy. Russia is a republic. The government of a monarchy is vested in the King. The King is empowered by God. The government of a republic can take many forms such as elected representative democracy or single party communist state. But a republic draws it's authority from the people. Democracy is having the character of the people. A republic that is based on democratic principles draws it's authority from the people. A republic can be democratic or dictatorial. North Korea is a republic. It's full name is "The Democratic People's Republic of Korea." Even dictators thrive to be seen as democratic, even when they are not. The "Islamic Republic of Iran" has dozens of supposedly democratic institutions and elections. Fundamentally though those choices are limited to the people by the theocratic nature of the government. Iran is actually a Theocracy where a state religion rules. It may be important to realize that this issue is not a question in other countries that either are well schooled in Government in general and/or do not have two major political parties named Republicans and Democrats.
