The global media has been captivated in the past three weeks by the first official tour of Price William, Kate Middleton and baby George to Australia and New Zealand. Every major American tabloid has plastered cute images of “gorgeous” baby George and Kate Middleton, on their front pages.
Let’s just say the popularity of the British monarchy is high across the world. Even cynical Brits who are against the royal family must be pleased with the extra publicity the family has brought to the nation. Can you imagine England without King and Queens? I sound like an ultra monarchist. You may be surprised to learn that isn’t the case. But living in America HAS changed my opinion on the Royal Family and their importance in modern life. You realise the huge amount of tourism they bring in and how powerful they are in shaping the perception of England. Especially in America.
So. Here are 7 pictures from the recent tour to Australia and New Zealand of the future Kings and Queens of England. It’s just a taste of the thousands that were taken.
