Did you know that wee Janette got about £50,000 or so from the Pavillion theatre in Glasgow cos she fell off a beanstalk in panto a couple of years ago! Serious.
They should have made the beanstalk f***ing higher!!

IMHO There must be something in the human psyche that wants royalty.

We Americans are high and mighty about saying "WE aren't beholden to a royal family," but then we raise celebrities to that status, sometimes even calling them "royalty." "Rock royalty" or "Hollywood royalty."

I've just realized how repeatedly typing the word "royalty" twists the fingers and the 2 hemispheres of the brain into knots. Anyway...

Our biggest star actresses were named Katherine and Elizabeth - was there a little subliminal thing happening in the fans' minds there?

We hold the Kennedy family up in that manner. IMHO they are a reprehensible group of people with a few good ones among them.

'Our' royal family is a reprehensible group of people with no good ones among them.

Well, I don't think we hear as much as you do. I mean, the only time I've heard about them in the past few months is the whole William and Kate Middleton thing. But I'd really rather hear about them than our ridiculously overrated American "celebrities".

My take is I think many Americans are fascinated by the pomp and the show. Of course, they are not ours so it is "exotic."
Also, Americans like flash and show. You do not see this with the Dutch or Spanish royal families.
Hey, for my ancestors, unless they were Der Hofjude (Court Jew), royalty was not normally fond of 'em.
