I love royalty hands down. However, I love the high society of yersteryear with the likes of the Astors, Kennedys, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, etc. But the Guilded Age, Camelot, etc., have all withered away.

Does America's Castles still come on A&E ?

I like French high society but can't find out much about them. I think it's because there very aristocratic but slighty more glitzy than the uk. Maybe I just like the French Countesses in books such as Maxine in Lace. I like both Ivana Trump and Jacqueline de Ribes X

I loved that show when I had cable (about 10-15 years ago)!

I would definitely watch a television channel devoted to royalty/high society! It would be nice if they had shows that featured events, etiquette, fashion, charity work, and family life. I would subscribe immediately to that channel.

I strongly disagree with this. Does it really matter if the job is being done? I think the commoner crown princesses of today are rising very well to the occasion and doing a great job, regardless of their "inferior birth." Let's look at royalty like the Grimaldis. Hmmm. . .seems like they could rival Hollywood "trash" on any given day. All these families started somewhere in history with someone proclaiming himself to be king or being given the title Prince by the Pope. So, their titles might be historical but when it comes down to it, they are rich people with man made titles. I love royalty too, but lets not exalt them so far above the rest of us.
Yeah I totally agree with you. They aren't a different breed of people and to be honest, I think more "commoners" have class than royals nowadays. And history is riddled with awful rulers and monarchs and only about like once every 100-150 years, does a good one come by. Being royal is just a title to be honest. It's just what someone calls someone else, a title. You could argue that being royal involves class and dedication and so on, but ultimately, they are all people and they are born no different from you and I.

Anyway, I'm not interested in high society or too much of royalty either. I just like the Luxembourg royal family, they rock my sox. :)

Personally, i don't have a preference. Perhaps my fascination with royalty is more of a curiosity on how they deal with the pressures of their position. So much are expected from them. With high society people, well, they live a privileged life and it is fascinating to read about their idiosyncrasies and all that....however, we have to remember they are still human and it really depends also on their upbringing, their influences and how they perceive the world-all these are reflected on how they act and what their personality is....

I like ROYALTY.
Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, is an example of a Royal, who though born a Prince, exemplifies what a Gentleman should be.

I totally agree with you on this one. One of my favorite pictures of William is when he greeted his sovereign and Queen at Anglesey RAF base a couple years ago. He presented what I thought was the most perfect bow I've ever seen him do. Funny thing though is that looking at the picture, some mistook it for William leaning down to his much shorter grandmother.

Its not only the presentation of formality that impresses me about William as a gentleman, but also he has a charismatic way of making everyone he's conversing with feel at ease and important to him. Reminds me of the time he was in Australia and NZ before the wedding and was visiting with people that were victimized by the floods. No "sir", no "your highness" business, he just said "call me William". I like that.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark said:

"My aim is to be a Danish rallying point to awaken the people's sense of nationality. I want to be a good ambassador for my country. But I will not shut myself away in a castle. I will be myself. I will be a human being."
