Interesting piece of video, but I'm sad at the tendency now to put Royals under the category of "showbiz." It seems to have become particularly bad in the last 10 years or so.

William owes this "celebrity" status to his parents, IMO. They "celebritized" the Windsors. Before Diana and Charles there was always a certain respectful distance kept towards the RF until the Wales' decided to air their dirty laundry in public. And Will and Harry (and their respective girlfriends) are the first generation who has to pay the price. It's ironic really...

Well actually he's not making a profit I believe. In case you're not aware, it takes money to run a forum like this, to keep the servers and the software up to date, etc. Of course, this is a dynamic website, and we have over 25,000 registered users, and none of them have had to pay for the pleasure of reading the content on this website.

I agree. Once people appear on t.v. and in magazines a lot, they become celebrities. Whatever is seen on t.v. is received passively and becomes, in effect, entertainment.
