Our fascination with royalty

The third person in line for the British throne last week made the rounds in Washington, D.C. Prince Harry may be the world’s most eligible royal bachelor. USA’s first lady Michelle Obama was among those charmed by the 28-year-old son of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles of Wales. There probably are many young men with equal or greater talent and looks, but royalty seems to create charisma by birth. Why is that? Why are so many people fascinated by royalty? A friend articulated a theory that makes sense to me. She says that royalty is a position that’s unattainable unless you’re born into it…or as Princess Diana did…marry into it.
