Is royalty outdated and irrelevant?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is proof that we still care about royal families. A lot. However, a growing number of people say royalty is a thing of the past and should be left there alongside knights, serfs and the Black Death. Why all the celebrity worship and pretending a family is somehow better and above others? But some think royalty is still important because they help unite people in ways politicians can't. What do you think? 👑

The US literally fought a war against Britain in order to tell royalty that they're outdated and irrelevant. Kings and Queens are artifacts of a time long gone. Queen Elizabeth is probably a very nice lady. There's no reason to worship her and obsess over her corgis. Plenty of people own corgis.

The Royal family is essentially symbolic these days. That's a good thing! Having a royal family that literally ruled the nation is obviously bad. But these days, royals are essentially just political celebrities. They stand above the political fray and give something for people to unite around.
