Is he saying he wants the country to be run by the Queen of England, or does he mean that he wants to be the King of Canada himself?

Oh this asshole again. Haven't you people had enough of him yet?
Twenty minutes of Mr Aurini may be a bit much for you to take, so if you've got better things to do and you're looking for the CliffsNote summary of this rant: no, he doesn't really get to the point. The bulk of this video is tangential rambling that sounds like it might eventually tie in to the core argument but never winds up doing so, punctuated by slow cigarette drags and smoldering, not-at-all-gay "Come Hither" looks.
However, he does say some rather telling things starting at 7:30, picking up speed at 8:15, and reaching crescendo at 8:55; simply replace "we" with "I", and I think that little section gets straight to the heart of who he is, and why.
It's a little tragic when you think about it like that, actually. I feel bad for the poor guy. :(
Devil's advocate: returning to a monarchy could potentially be a good idea as it removes the moral responsibility for a failed society from the victims themselves. It's all well and good to say Richard III was a bad king and the kingdom suffered, because it was a single man's corruption instead of an entire culture's failure to commit to enlightened self-rule. We can damn the villain, but we can't seem to ever admit that our inability to deserve democracy damns us to our own choices.
But then again, I believe in absolutely nothing I just typed, just a thought bubble.

Frankly, I wouldn't mind seeing a King of America when I hear truthers go on and on about how Obama isn't a real American and Democrats don't love their country. We've pretty much been using Presidential families as de-facto royal families for a while now, and it wrecks and sours our politics. I get the impression that countries with royal figureheads don't have this problem because they've always got a ready-made answer to the question, "who represents us?" Its useful to have a person to serve as a repository for these feelings while ordinary, boring people take care of the business of government.
In a way, corporate America should really just do this for us. Pick somebody, make them a royal, do it completely outside of the electoral process, and let them handle everything. It would solve so many problems. The trick is actually picking the right person, since so far the people they choose to make celebrities are all awful. George Clooney would be a good choice.

Well, celebrities are the other group of people that represent "us." When I had a roommate who read "People," I was always really surprised by the informality with which magazines like that discuss their subjects. It's like they're neighbors, but special.
Since kings are necessarily attached to states, I think having corporate America doing the choosing would sort of be a non starter. But I'd be down with king George I.
This is the kind of douchebag who would get involved with the Church of Satan "ironically" and then be thoroughly shamed by its members.
When I was 21, I wanted to do something to really shock my father. I figured that my choice was between the Communist Party USA and the Church of Satan. The Communist Party membership was free, whereas the Church of Satan was a 0 fee, so I went with Communism and thus got my FBI file. Hooray!
I didn't have my sound on when I began playing this video. Then the guy showed up on screen. I've finally stopped laughing. I haven't listened to a single word. Five stars.
