Fascination with royalty

Posted on

We seem to have a fascination with royalty. A recent interview with part of the British royal family sent that family and the rest of the world into a tizzy. (That’s a good Southern word by the way.) Wedding ceremonies for members of that same family were some of the most watched weddings ever. We seem to take royalty seriously. Or do we? This Sunday we’ll be celebrating Palm Sunday once again.
