i suppose this is miscellaneous, but hard hitting about the obsession with royalty.
Quote from article: After Vancouver photographer Dina Goldstein saw her daughter become princess-obsessed, and then watched her mom be diagnosed with cancer, she got the idea to explore what might happen after the happy ending.
I'm putting this here, unless we have somewhere a thread about "American Royalty" but there's a new biography on Jackie Onassis (hence the Monaco tie-in here) and so far, it's not flattering. She slept with her husband's brothers!!??!! Beurk!!
