What about it?
You’re still so obsessed with other countries’ royalty!
I mean, really. How many articles about the new royal baby do you need?
First, I think it’s mostly just the British that we obsess about.
Second, given that we’re writing one, at least one more article.
Third, you do realize that you linked to a British article? They’re probably permitted to be more excited about a new royal baby than we are about new presidents every few years.
Ok, fair point. In my defense, though, I did get to that article through an American website.
In all honesty, I’m not actually that upset. The Baby will be important. When it comes down to it, he probably already is important. Even if the monarchs of that realm do not have the same power as in my home land.
Huh? What do you mean?
From what I can tell, the United Kingdom’s monarchs are mostly symbols. I don’t think they do that much in making policy decisions.
But symbols are power. One article put it as the baby being a symbol of the country continuing for another generation. I could understand being excited about that- if it were my own country. Since you Americans aren’t British, though, I don’t entirely get it.
The way I see it, it’s an opportunity for us to make a big fuss and get excited and look at cute baby pictures. The British Royalty are essentially celebrities in America, after all.
I guess that is fair.
That doesn’t mean I have to agree, however.
Of course not. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to look for more footage of the new prince!
Well, Happy Wednesday, Fluffsters! I hope you have a great week.
