Johann Hari: This royal frenzy should embarrass us all

In most countries, parents can tell their kids that if they work hard and do
everything right, they could grow up to be the head of state and symbol of
their nation. Not us. Our head of state is decided by one factor, and one
factor alone: did he pass through the womb of one aristocratic Windsor woman
living in a golden palace? The US head of state grew up with a mother on
food stamps. The British head of state grew up with a mother on postage
stamps. Is that a contrast that fills you with pride?

A genuine belly laugh from the Independent today.

Signed, A Republican.
