This just in- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have announced they will be expecting a baby in the spring of 2019. Almost every major news outlet has covered the royal pregnancy, and in response, social media has been blowing up with current pictures of Meghan Markle’s baby bump. Similarly last week, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding had media outlets buzzing with pictures and coverage of the event.

With all this royal news it has caused me to question why American’s get so involved with business that has no effect on their day to day lives. If you ask me, listening to the royal news reminds me of a childhood fairy tale. Whenever the news is covering a story about the royal family, I always have to pause and watch to see what is currently going on in their lives. Maybe it’s envy for some people, but for me, watching the royals throughout their lives is like watching a movie.

In Ms. Chamberline’s sociology class, a topic that is commonly discussed is social media’s way to draw people’s attention as an escape from their current lives. People want to get swept away in a fairy tale that has no impact on their life whatsoever and following the elaborate royal family is one way of doing it.
