Royalty or High Society
 
Are you just intersted in Royalty or in High society ? X

Anyone think there should be a socialite tv station. There could be shows on royalty, society, fashion and insted of a studio and presenter a rich socialite in here faboulous apartment X

dbarn67 08-22-2007 03:57 PM

I'd watch it. By the way for those in the US (and elsewhere maybe) this Thursday evening at 9 p.m. eastern time vh1 is doing a young royals version of their "Fabulous life of...". It'll be total fluff but it should be entertaining.

dbarn67 08-22-2007 04:02 PM

Royalty is what I'm interested in.

magnik 08-22-2007 04:25 PM

Decidedly a royal.

Moonmaiden23 08-22-2007 04:44 PM

It actually depends on who the royal and who the "high society" members are. Some royals I find rather boring, and some I can't get enough of(The Grimaldis of Monaco) The same with society individuals.

One thing is ABSOLUTELY certain though...I find ANY royal/high society personage more entertaining than Hollywood people. I can't stand reading one more word about Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears or Lindsay Lohan. I couldn't care less about Hollywood!

I do not consider these women high society, they are just 'trash' with lots of money. When I think of high society I think of money, and lots of class.

I think that was my point. I completely agree. Although having lots of money does NOT automatically give a person true class. Donald and Melania Trump are obviously very wealthy, but IMO they do not have class. Some of the very wealthy older Republican women who came into prominence during the Reagan Administration(Besty Bloomingdale) completely lack class, IMO. (The latter sashayed around London during the celebrations for the wedding of Charles and Diana wearing a TIARA for gods sake-uggh!)

On the other hand I have read about poor or middle class people that have more breeding and class than any Royal or Society person could dream. My aunt is one, the honorable Nelson Mandela is another.

I was agreeing with you. Another person who had a lot of class was Mahatma Gandhi.

I totally agree. I have a hard time understanding why anyone cares about these people. But, well, to me the Grimaldi's are the Hollywood trash of the royal realm (illegitimate births, adulterous relationships, marriages to bodyguards and circus performers). I'm surprised that you are into them given your feelings about Hollywood.

Of course, I do not consider Princess Grace or Prince Rainier to be in this category. But the others, especially Stephanie and Albert, definitely.

LOL! The Grimaldi's fascinate me. They are beautiful to look at, intellectually gifted and oversexed. But when it counts, they seem to know how to pull it together and behave. Looking at Caroline today, I would never guess that this is the same woman who has been married three times-two of them pregnant at the altar-and had an affair with a married man. But the Caroline of today is a very regal figure who seems to have an almost uncanny Jacqueline Kennedy knack for rising to every occasion, big or small.

I agree that they have way too much dirty laundry for a princely family, however. Maybe it's the story of their noble lineage...how the monk seized the castle in the 13th Century and it's been a rather high end soap opera since. They have-despite their unseemly scandals-maintained just enough of their royal veneer to remain interesting for me.

And don't forget that Rainier and Grace were not quite as pristine as their public images suggest...they were just better...FAR BETTER...at keeping it under wraps like nobility should!

royaltywatcher 08-22-2007 09:26 PM

Good reply.

Yes, Caroline was always regal, and stunningly beautiful. She is showing her age now, too much time in the sun, I think. But in her youth she was breathtaking. And she has an innate elegance that transcends the unpleasant bits in her past. I don't think Charlotte compares in beauty or elegance, although she is certainly a pretty girl.

Albert and Stephanie--what can I say? I like Albert's loyalty to his sister, but that's about all I like. I can't say I like his loyalty to his children.

I think Stephanie is a very tragic figure in some ways. She is obviously a talented and kind person who cares. But she seemed to waste so much time and energy during her youth fighting who she was, and what cannot change. She is not an ordinary person. She is the daughter of a legend. She is a princess. I can't understand how one can claim to love a parent so much and then break their heart-over and over-like she did with Rainier. Especially toward the end of his life. I would never forgive myself for that.

As for Albert, well. Like all the children he is spoiled and entitled. Despite his obvious intelligence, he lacks the basic common sense-not to mention self control- it would have taken to protect himself from fathering children out of wedlock. But I am happy that he is supporting these children, as any decent man would be expected to. It's not their fault, they deserve all of his support, IMO.

sesa 08-23-2007 12:13 PM

Just royalty for me. I like their connection to history.

Regina 08-24-2007 04:33 AM

Royalty! I don't care much for people with fresh money, most of the times they are such annoying "nouveau riches".
Royalty is different. Royals are connected with history, tradition and class (at least most of them).

I don't consider the Grimaldi's real royalty. Especially the younger generation. They seem more proper to Hollywood parties than to attend european royal events. :flowers:

EXACTLY! That's a good point, I feel the same way. I am passionate about history, and I like the way that ancient and noble families link us to the past.

LauraMCS 08-24-2007 12:55 PM

True High Society is also linked with history, tradition and class. The Hiltons are not considered high society, they are cafe society. The Astors, Vanderbilts, and Roosevelts are examples of High Society. Many of the earliest members of those families were amongst the original settlers of the U.S. and were vital in establishing this country. I am interested in them as much as I am in royalty considering that the younger generation of royals and the women who married into these families leave much to be desired.

I agree with you. I love the Grimaldis of Monaco and I love the Windsors ( William and Harry). I also love the Vanderbilts, Whitneys, and Astors and I just loved the Kennedys. What does that make me?

iowabelle 08-24-2007 03:07 PM

I loved Princess Grace, but I'm terribly disappointed in her children. Somerset Maugham was right. Monaco is a sunny place for shady people.

What I meant to say is that I did not like Alberts lack of loyalty to his children. He may be supporting them, but he is not involving himself in their lives, or them in his. I'm not a big follower of the family, although I was a Princess Grace/Princess Caroline fan up until Princess Grace died and maybe a few years after (before things started getting really out of hand). But I haven't seen any pictures of Albert with his children.

Yes, this is what I like too. I like the idea that these people are actually related to Queen Victoria, King Christian IX, etc. I like how they are related to each other, too. I don't think they will be as interesting going forward now that they have started marrying commoners.

My gosh...we like the SAME people LOL! The Kennedys fascinate me too...just like the Grimaldis it's the combination of high glamour, scandal and Greek tragedy.

I still enjoy the Windsors, but not as much as I did when the Princess of Wales was alive. I adore William and Harry but the Duchess of Cornwall just depresses me.

I made that same point in another thread...if the trend to marry commoners continues the link with real history will be lost. I see no problem with every once in a blue moon, but now Royalty marrying Royalty or nobility is the exception, not the rule.

I don't think that bodes well for the future, somehow.

No, it doesn't. It will accelerate and justify the process of jettisoning the royal families. They will simply be less royal by blood, and add bad behavior, casual dress, etc., and out they go.

As much as it pains me to say it, I think we are already seeing the result of these types of marriages right now. I am not saying that these are not fine young women, quite the contrary. But the fact is that they have not been reared from birth with certain protocols, behavior and EXPECTATIONS ingrained in them. This current middle class and Western emphasis on marrying for "love first" simply cannot be the standard by which princes and princesses choose their life partners. It's a late 20th Century phenomenon that has become more and more acceptable.

Love is wonderful and of course should be a factor, but not the only one or necessarily even the first one, IMO.

There are pictures of Prince Albert with Alexandre in the Alexendre & Nicole Coste thread. I haven't seen him with Jazmin, though. I'm sure there are pictures floating around somewhere.

But to go back on topic: I prefer royalty but not the really stuffy high royals. I like royals with a bit of an edge. It's probably why I like the Casiraghis and the Windsors that, and they're all closer to my age.

I believe royalty has lost so much of their luster and glam that we've been forced to turn to high society

michelleq 08-25-2007 11:49 AM

I enjoy the royals that are not so much in the news; Denmark, Sweden, Dutch, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Norway and Sweden. I also enjoy the German Royal/Princely Families; to me they are more royal that the Windsors. I know that Royalty was terminated after WWI, but they are still Princes to many as well as theirselves.

RoyallyRich 10-23-2007 04:20 PM

I like both.But I have focused and have a greater passion for Royalty obviously.But in recent times I have also found that I am also interested in High Society and even political dynasties.I agree with CaliforniaDreamin,I would rather read or be entertained by the activities of a Rothschild than the Hollywood garbage.I see aristocrats as Royal sattelites at times,mini-Royals.I have always been a big fan of Carolina Herrera,Comtesse Jacqueline de Ribes,Princess Lee Radziwill,Countess Isabelle Ornano,Princess Silvia d'Arenberg,Sao Schlumberger,and Jackie Kennedy Onassis.As for Paris Hilton,I know that she acts,thinks and at times looks like trash.But kudos to her she brought the "Heiress thing" to the table.Unfortunately she also trashed it by her antics.I hate the fact that she made the status of heiress look so bad and that she would rather cavort with Hollywood than set an example of old guard grandeur and class.Well she isn't even full blue blood.Her mum Kathy was from a B-movie family.

We are interested in the same exact people! I am fascinated by Jacqueline Kennedy and her sister, and I think Carolina Herrera is one of the most elegant women alive.

The less said about Paris Hilton the better. I am staggered that anyone given the opportunities that chick was born with could turn out so ignorant and trashy. I keep hoping she changes, because she is a disaster and by the way so are her parents.

These people are so exceptional in American life.They seem to remind us or even give us a slight glimpse of a different America.Almost like a Royal America.I love Jackie Kennedy and her gorgeous group of WASP buddies.Like Jayne Wrightsman and Babe Paley.I like and feel sorry for Babs Hutton.But she had too many issues.Doris Duke in the other hand well...I just wish their parents loved and took care of them more.When I take a break form my Royalty read-a-thon, I read books about the Vanderbilts,the Astors,the Roosevelts etc.It is very inspiring.

I both hate and love Paris.She's leading scions like Brandon Davis,Tinsley Mortimer and Fernanda Berracasa to trashdom by example.One heir-scion ,Cody Franchetti actually admires her and wants to be a male Paris Hilton.My sister thinks Ivanka Trump is the ultimate best heiress.I say Amanda Hearst.

I agree with your sister about Ivanka Trump. Donald Trump is a piece of work but he has raised intelligent classy children who NEVER seem to get it wrong.
He and Ivana should be commended for that.

Also the Hearst girls are terrific, all of them

RubyPrincess168 11-03-2007 07:21 AM

I am interested in both since the US has no royalty, but it's hard to find members of high society who you can look up to. Most are such screwups there is nothing to do except tear them down. It's like they're trying to hard to be something they're not or to live up to the public/press/their personal expectations of what they should be.

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.

Chimene 11-03-2007 12:38 PM

What would we call the antics of Henry VIII? At least Stephanie's indiscretions never killed anyone. We don't consider the Grimaldis royalty, yet all the others are?

I don't care much for HS because they are only trying to emulate royalty.

Duchess 11-03-2007 01:50 PM

i love royalty but i also love high society. i like to hear about how they made their money, how they spend it, what their houses look like, where they eat, where they vacation. i just think it's fun.

mrsbugman 01-04-2008 08:21 PM

It doesn't really matter to me...... I just like to study the wonderful jewelry, and the elegant, beautifully cut dress.

HRH Kerry 01-04-2008 09:59 PM

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 ?

Alastair_r 01-05-2008 07:09 AM

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 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.

Alastair_r 11-20-2008 09:46 AM

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. :)

QUEENECE29 11-22-2008 04:07 AM

My prefer always Royalty. Because to be interested in history, historicial periods, life line, royalty family tree and that time all royal families and very important government humans.

crownprincessrhey 11-22-2008 04:30 AM

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 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.

CyrilVladisla 04-05-2014 08:10 PM

His Royal Highness, Prince William is truly an outstanding PRINCE and GENTLEMAN. :crown8:

Royals would want to promote themselves and their family in a positive light if they did a reality show. I tried to imagine what a show would be like. A royal couple attending a charity event to help abused animals, a female royal donating her clothing to an auction to help poor women get an education or a male royal sitting on a bed reading a story to his children or going to a school and reading a story to children who are physically challenged at a school. Something along these lines. Those who are royal watchers would watch such a show. Depending on the country, the ratings would be fairly high.

This would not be you're typical reality show which has drama on it. Sadly if you had a reality show of royals gone wild, you would have a much higher rating because some people love to watch others in constant conflict, people who are fighting with others all the time and people that are mean. This is you're typical reality show.

Speaking of royal reality shows, there is going to be one actually on BBCA. I've not heard nor read too much about it yet but did find the website with information on the show.

Interested in both depending on who it is. I Luke the BRF and watch them the but also am interested in Sweden Denmark and Monaco; if their was an Imperial family of Russia I would be obsessed with them.
But I also like watching interesting documentaries on billionaires all over the world; I just finished 2 documentaries discussing rich Russians living in England and rich people in Dubai who are buying and building islands. Plus I've always liked the Rothschild's.

If it's Paris Hilton.. Then no, if it's Nicky Hilton then maybe. If it's the Kardashain's then no... If it's Kylie Jenner then yes.
