Bringing thanks to monarch (6)


I believe the answer is:


'bringing' is the definition.
('take' can be a synonym of 'bring')

'thanks to monarch' is the wordplay.
'thanks' becomes 'ta' (UK informal version of 'thank you').
'to monarch' becomes 'king' (king is a kind of monarch).

(Other definitions for taking that I've seen before include "Charming, removing" , "Stealing; charming" , "Extra item added to book" , "Accepting" , "Receiving; renting" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
