Mostly immune to the royal glamor (ehm, glamour?). When Charles and Diana got married, the press coverage was extraordinary but I didn't understand what the fuss was about. I do enjoy their foibles from time to time.
Imbuing magical properties onto books, institutions, or people typically leads to trouble. Folks who say the royal family is a harmless lark should remember that the royals preside over the Church of England and Parliament. Let's recall the U.S. colonies were founded to escape royal and religious tyranny.
Having a royal family is dumb.
