They are very different. The UK's version of the president is the Prime Minister. The Queen has more power than a prime minister/president/the government. She has to approve all laws before the government can pass them and she is the only one who can declare a war.

Also, the Queen is a member of the royal family. The Prime Minister or President is a normal person who is elected by the public.

Though at one time the queen ruled the country, that is no longer so. She is just a figure head at this point. All political decisions are done through the Prime Minister and the House of Parliament. They are similar to our President and Congress.
