First and Foremost: I suppose this topic has the potential to veer toward the political side. That is not the intent and lets stay away from that danger zone.
Second: I understand the concept of Royalties. I think a person deserves continuing compensation for unique ideas, work, etc.
My question revolves around the idea of Royalty in the modern age, especially in the United States. Seems everyday I hear a news story here in the US about a new royal baby, royal wedding, royal outfit/fashion, etc. Last I checked the USA had a revolution a couple hundred years ago and told the king to pound salt. When/Why did we start becoming obsessed with the king/queen in the castle again?
No offenses intended to those across the pond and beyond. Monarchies/Royal Families have been part of your culture/history and I can understand your news media and daily actions giving them some attention. I do not know if it is the idea of a Cinderella Story or finding out your long lost Uncle was the Duke of Nothingham and left you a fortune. . . Anyone out there a fan of the Royal Family or are you on the other end of the spectrum and get tired of the endless media coverage?
