Some Americans are genuinely hoping the Queen takes back control if Donald Trump is elected

With Donald Trump still very much in the race to be the next president of the United States, Americans are becoming ever more desperate to save their country.

While the business tycoon has been running on a slogan of 'Make America Great Again', a growing number of citizens are making a call to 'Make America Great Britain Again'.

A few months ago, thousands of people shared a letter which asked the Queen to overrule the Declaration of Independence and take America back as a British colony:

On behalf of the American people, I urgently implore you to take us back.

That story was nipped in the bud after Buckingham Palace appeared to decline the invitation (although that response later turned out to be a fake).

There have also been several satirical news articles along similar lines. Like this one from the Huffington Post:

And more recently, this one from satirical website the DC Brief:

It's been shared thousands and thousands of times on Facebook and Tumblr. And while many of those seem to be in jest, plenty of Americans have been sharing the stories with some seriousness.

One person commented:

I really hope she goes through with this. Please, please let her go through with it. I’ll pay taxes on tea again if I have to, just make him go away!!!

Another noted:

If he wins… please, take us back, because we will truly have lost all hope by then

People are so serious, they're using Hamilton lyrics:

You’ll be back/soon you’ll see/you’ll remember you belong to me/You’ll be back/time will tell/you’ll remember that I served you well.

It's all getting a bit too much for some Americans:

Make America Great Britain Again

And who can blame them?
