Still, King of England is mostly a superficial title and it doesn’t affect anyone outside of Britland. What about all the royal newborns of countries besides England?

Apparently Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the other twelve Commonwealth Realms this kid will grow up to be the ceremonial head of state of don’t count then.

The royal family is still superficial even to commonwealth nations. We manage ourselves just fine without any royals opinion.

I’m not disputing that. I’m saying that claiming this only affects the UK in some way is a tad narrow minded.

You should care.

He will always have whatever he wants, solely because he was born into a family that is distantly related to the original rulers. The very definition of bourgeois. He has nothing in common with the people he will eventually ceremonially rule, he contributes nothing but tourism revenue (which could be easily attributed to the palaces, not the monarchs themselves), and lives an exorbitant lifestyle on the government’s dime while poverty and starvation still exist throughout the nations in which he is ostensibly the regent.

So, as to the question “Should people care?”
