Friends in the United Kingdom, would you have the US back as a Commonwealth Realm?

I'm American (largely of English and Scottish stock), and I'll concede: we in the US have blown it.  Rather than being similar to Canada or Australia, we've descended into riots, disastrous responses to deadly pandemics and with an orange Benito Mussolini as our executive.

Would you have us back, please, at least as a Commonwealth Realm (a member of the Commonwealth with Queen Elizabeth as head of state), like Canada or Australia?

Update:

You sent in troops to keep us in 1776- what's changed?

Update 2:

With Brexit, the UK is, looking to build stronger relationships with other countries in the Commonwealth.  Having the US in the Commonwealth would be one way to build a stronger relationship.  And having Queen Elizabeth as head of state of the US would surely be an ego boost (and it would be an improvement for Americans).

    Guess you haven't followed any UK news lately if you think they're doing any better than we are. PM Johnson isn't called "Trump 2.0" for no reason.

    You may have descended as many naïve and young have today but don't assume that others are as naïve nor ignorant as you are. Your ignorance is what the Black Shirts of Mussolini and the ANTIFA/BLM have in common. Insecurity, lacking logic and can only impose theirs through intimidation.

    Why would they, and what is it you imagine it would achieve? You realise the UK exerts precisely zero political control over Commonwealth realms, right?  The US needs major constitutional reforms, and until it develops the stomach for that, very little will change.

    Why would the UK want that burden?
