Both the Boomer and the Millennial revealed they regularly read articles about the British royal family. However, they admitted that their knowledge is fairly surface level, mainly due to distance.
“I can’t name all of the queen’s grandchildren off the top of my head, but I do know what designer Kate Middleton wore on her wedding day,” the Boomer explained. The Millennial added, “Ditto.”
When asked why they follow British royals, the Boomer explained that they’re much more relatable than American celebrities. “I’m not interested in the bra and booty shorts that Miley Cyrus wore to the gym. Or the crop top and leggings that Hailey Bieber wore to the grocery store,” she said. “What I am interested in is the dress that Kate, Meghan or—dare I say—Camilla wore in public. Or the jeans they wore to the park. Their fashion is closer to what I’d wear.”
The Millennial continued, “To be honest, it’s a mindless escape from reality. Our current political and social climate is extremely exhausting, so I often turn to distractions—like the royal family—because it seems almost like a fairytale to us Americans.”
