The crown estates would manage themselves very nicely without the figureheads at the top, whether they were called the crown estates or not. It's the trappings of the Monarchy that are profitable, not the institution itself. Those estates could be managed profitably whether there was an inbred chinless wonder at the top or not.

Tourism? All the palaces castles etc would still be there, and I'd argue just as viable an attraction whether occupied or not. Monarchy as a stabilising influence? It's a complete anachronism which has zero bearing on my life, or of anyone else I know, so no, don't buy that argument either. So

1) Financial implications of UK without a Monarchy - broadly speaking none.
2) What would it be replaced with? Does it have to be replaced with anything? I'd argue that it doesn't really need to be, but a greatly reduced "heir & spare" system has some merit.

Don't get me started on Prince Charles, a man given to remarking on people "not rising above their expectations" (I'm paraphrasing, but will dig out the relevant quote). Whilst being so utterly divorced from anything approaching reality that he has someone to squeeze toothpaste onto a toothbrush for him.
