I'm not a mason but the main reason is that royal / masonic structures and cultures are all derived from the ancient world and they try to trace a path to the modern day. In the ancient world monarchy was the norm with its surrounding structures of power which in the ancient world are dominated by architecture, agriculture and early forms of explanatory models of the world. In order to maintain a link to this ancient history, a link to monarchy is thought needed. Clearly to continue to cite the ancient world as a source of wisdom in the current world is an intellectual culture doomed to failure.
