H.H. Holmes Posted March 11, 2011 #1 Share Posted March 11, 2011 Being an American, I don't really understand why the UK still takes any notice of the royal family. The news, both here and abroad, has been full of details about the upcoming wedding (I forget who is getting married, I think one of the princes, oh well). Celebrities and diplomats from around the world are going to be in attendance, but I ask myself "why?". From my understanding, they have no real legislative power in the UK anymore, much of that has gone to the parliament and the PM (I could be mistaken, so feel free to correct me). So why do people feel that it is so important to hear what they have to say or care about who is going to be the next "king" or "queen"? Why keep these relics of an old, outdated Monarchy? Would appreciate any comments on the matter, I am just trying to understand this... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
