Wash DC – Royal Sanctuary?

Wash Post has an article about how many exiled royal families live in and around Washington DC. If you have ever seen the movie The Queen and I you have some understanding of what role these monarchs have to their exiles. Being Irish and republican (note small r) I cannot understand how a society can uphold a family or group as deserving of superior status merely by birth. I have met British military who are willing to take a bullet for the Queen, an admirable lady no doubt, but what did she do to deserve the adoration? She had the right father. That said, if someone offered me a title, I’d take it. 😉 LOL
