The royal family has always been the center of British media. In the recent news, Prince Harry and Duchess Megan Markle’s split from the Royal Institution has caused quite the stir, and the separation was published in several news outlets. It cannot be denied that no matter how old the British Royal Institution is, people will always be curious about their lives – how Royals are in an everyday setting, what they do in their campaigns abroad, and the history behind their family lineage. Anything remotely about the British Royals draws such great curiosity from the masses that they are a great source for a historical drama. No matter how much people say they hate the Royals, they love anything involving them nonetheless.
