It had to do with the order of titles. King was technically higher than Queen, because the wife of the King would become a Queen, but the husband of a Queen would NOT become a King. In cards, since there is both a King and a Queen, it can be understood that the Queen is the wife of the King, and therefore not the actual sovereign. Queen Elizabeth II's husband, for example, isn't the King, he is just Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Granted, this may be too in-depth of an explanation for a question about a deck of cards, but if you are genuinely curious, that would be the reason.4

Is this going to be a sexist thing?
'Cause... it has to do with how the monarchy works. That's what it's based on. That's all.0
