Great set of links. All of the royals they showed in the Crown video did share similar eyes - except one (I don't know who he is), who really stood out as different. The similarity was much more pronounced in the earlier royals, and while Queen Elizabeth II has something of the same orbital distance and shape, she doesn't look as astonishingly similar as, say, Elizabeth I does to her father and the earlier monarchs. (That's a good thing, IMO).

What a glorious looking crown. I do believe that the British State Crown is the greatest looking crown in the world.

That got tears welling. Why? I don't know. Why do these royals feel kind of like family? I don't know. Same with the Japanese Royals. I suppose that is the way Monarchy is supposed to leave you feeling kind of like. That is what keeps the Monarchy strong, people feeling like that for them. I guess the respect you give kind of depends on how you grew up. She'll always be that young Queen that reminds people of a school teacher and someone's mom. How you take that I guess depends on how you took school and other people's parents. Know what I mean?

I know exactly where you're coming from on this. The Queen, after serving for over 60 years, kind of makes you feel like she's the ultimate Granny. She came to the throne when I was only a month old but even back then, she made a big impression on the adult women in my family I think. "The Queen served this for lunch" and "The Queen always wears hats and gloves like a lady should". The royals, being outside of politics, were a glance into another world and I don't think much changed until the US had their own Jackie to admire.

There's also the element of pomp and pageantry and tradition and history that we just don't have here in the US.
