Watch Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 12 on Wisconsin Public Television.
Who could pass up a chance to spend some time with the Royal Family? Not you, I’m sure… Judging by the massive number of people who tuned in to the royal wedding of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton for hours on end.
Just what is it that makes the Royal Family so interesting? I suppose it could be as simple as the fact that they are “royalty,” but perhaps it’s because they have a culture so different from our own. The whole idea of a queen seems so outdated; it’s almost hard to believe there are still places structured under a monarch. That being said, this serves as the perfect opportunity to take a sneak peek into how a modern-day monarchy actually functions.
