They just happen to be obscenely rich, so I'm going to hazard a guess and say a 'culture of envy' has got to be contributing. On the whole they act responsibly and use their influence (a shadow of it's former self) for positive action in the UK.,o Comparing the Royal Family to Kim Kardashian or any of these other wannabe celebs is ludicrous. None of them courts celebrity like those 'celebs', their claim to fame is the fact that they won the lottery at birth, or married into it. Do I resent any of them for that? Why should I? If you're happy with your lot in life then I can't see how the Royal Family affe ts you negatively. If you're not happy, if you're not content with your life, it's easy to let jealousy villify them. The closest 'celeb' the royal family can be compared to is Paris Hilton. She was born into staggering wealth, except in her case by acting like an idiot she's lost that inheritance. By the way, there's a hell of a lot of bad manners in here. It's ok to come into thread and bash the Royals, 'close this thread!', ' I don't care!' But it's not OK to voice my thoughts about Cory whathisface who died of an overdose? Seriously? I can be a fucker too. Ok then. Cory Smackhead Whatshisface died because he was a weak willed human being who couldn't cope with his 'demons', assuming of course that becoming rich and famous and being paid obscene amounts of money for using his talent can be called 'demons'. When people come around crying and wailing that one of the actors on their favourite show Glee died, I couldn't really give a shit. Oh yeah. I have a Takara MP Soundwave, because I'm rich, and you don't because you're poor. I hope I've pissed off some people here, that was my intent. The level of hypocrisy and bad manners in this thread is staggering and quite frankly offensive to me.
