So Is the Queen/King of England like the protestant equivalent to the pope? I'm not impressed, spiritual leaders should be priests.?

Jesus is the King of Heaven and the Virgin Mary is the Queen of Heaven. Protestantism is heresy.
a person can battle Protestant heresy using the rosary and fasting.

The Archbishop of Canterbury is the spritual leader of the Church of England. Not the Queen.

The church was started by a king, so it stands to reason he would have made himself head of the church

Here's a suggestion:
Produce some testable, repeatable consistent evidence of the existence of ANY Gods or Goddesses, and THEN let's figure out who can and/or should be spiritual leaders.
Otherwise, you're just GUESSING that Gods and/or Goddesses DO exist, and you're just GUESSING that "spiritual leaders" are needed.

There hasn't been a King or Queen of England since Queen Anne became the Queen of Great Britain in 1707. The Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and about fifteen other realms, is the head of the Church of England. The Anglican and Episcopal churches, which have developed from the Church of England, regard the Archbishop of Canterbury or a local Archbishop as their leader.

The Church of England equivalent, and in fact I'm happy with that because although I'm republican I do think she sets a good example of being Christian and doing her duty. If this country became a republic, I'd still want her to be head of the church.

No. For one thing she is only the head of the Anglican/Episcopal* church, not of protestants generally. For another, she is really not much more than a nominal head. It is the bishops and synod who make the decisions.
* Correction: It appears, as others have said, that she is head (or rather Supreme Governor) of the Church of England, rather than the Anglican Church as a whole, and so is not governor even of the Scottish, Irish and Welsh branches of the Anglican Communion.
