For multiple centuries, people from all over the world have been following the royal family. Perhaps it is because they live such extravagant lives, or maybe it is the fact that the royal family was once the most powerful bloodline in the world. It is like watching a real life drama where there are doting fans, merchandise made in the millions, and a massive media circus. This was clear when Prince William got married and when his first son was born. Even though the British royal family today are more like figureheads and have less influence on the politics of Parliament, people still follow them like they're still in charge.
