Considering the lengths you guys went to to get rid of them, I don't get it either.

They should have been cancelled by now....


Fine with me, they're like MLB's appendix.


If the Royals are the appendix, the Yankees are the taint.

The Royals are relevant now because Mahomes is part owner, I guess.

I saw the title and I thought you meant the Kansas City Royals.

I actually care more about them then the ones from the UK and as a Yankee fan I don't care about Kansas City at all.


pretty much except Damn Yankees.

It's a role we enjoy playing.

I actually thought Network was referring to those delicious Royal Caramels we all had as kids. Man I love those. I just got a bulk bag for a hit of nostalgia.

Maybe we shouldn’t care but we need to be aware that the Crown and Queen are the worlds biggest land owners @ 6.6 Billion acres of land...shopping malls and all.

I give exactly zero s#its about Brittish, or any other royalty ( what a laugh). THAT is what the USA was founded on.

It's fake popularity but I'd like to see headlines about the pedo prince taken into custody and his stuff nationalized.

Most people don't know where soccer/football came from.

Association football ...the "soc" was soccer and is a British term.
Even Australia calls it soccer.

Rugby football was the origin of American football.

So both are correct.


That being said...
It looks like Harry is a simp and she will and has cost him millions.

Because the ''royals'' fit nicely into the fantasy world of ''pop culture''. Of ''celebrity culture''. They mesh with the fantasies that were and are piped into children though American movies like Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast.

Check out the movies that are used as baby sitters for little girls. Plop them down in front of ''Moana'' day after day to baby sit them from age 1 onward. It's all fantasy that is pumped into us.

The fantasy of how our lives might be. ""Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous'' . Remember how that show took off and became the rage for a while? Hosted by that Robin Leach guy with the strong English accent to lend it more of a flavor of superiority as if the accent alone was enough to give it value.

edit.. correcting to Leach.

Utter bollocks, so much so that you had to repeat it just to convince yourself!

Clue:
Foot - Ball.
Not, Hand - Egg.

On topic:
Most of us here in the UK don't really give a toss about the monarchy so I honestly don't understand the US's obsession with them.

I think the real question is, "Why is the American Media obsessed with the Royals?"

I agree with the sentiment, "Everything I know about the British Royal Family I learned against my will."
