People around the world are fascinated by British royals
For many years people around the world have been fascinated by the British royal family. There are many reasons for this, from Princess Diana’s intrigue to glamorous royal weddings to adorable royal kids wanting to believe that princes and princesses really do live happily ever after. But many books, documentaries, and some who lived behind the palace walls have revealed that royal life is not a fairy tale.
In 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle surprised fans everywhere when they announced they were stepping down as members of the royal family. The Duke and Duchess continued to shock the public when they did a television interview with Oprah Winfrey in which they described instances that sounded more like a nightmare than a fairy tale.
After that interview, Harry made further statements cursing his family, and this shocked many of his Japanese fans.
The reason why Japanese fans consider Sussex’s behavior so ‘rude’
Royal biographer and author Angela Levine revealed that people who live in Japan are particularly interested in Meghan and Harry.
“Japan is fascinated [the British] royal family,” Levine wrote in a Substack newsletter (per To express) “Every few weeks I get asked by one of their TV channels to update them on what’s happening in the UK, their main interests at the moment are Harry and Meghan and who can blame them.”
Levine said Japanese residents who follow the Sussexes closely are shocked by their behavior as it is something that will not happen in their country. “They can’t believe their behavior towards senior royals is so, well, rude,” she said. “No one would treat their royal family like that, they tell me.”
Who are the members of the Imperial Family of Japan?
The Japanese royal family isn’t nearly as famous as the British royal family, but it also has a history that dates back thousands of years. City Country The famous Imperial House of Japan is considered to be the oldest continuous monarchy in the world as it can be traced back to 600 BCE.
Its members include Emperor Naruhito, the eldest son of former Emperor Akito, and his wife Empress Masako. Princess Aiko is the daughter of the Emperor and Empress. Unlike the British line of succession, because she is not a male, the princess is not in line for the throne. Instead, the emperor’s younger brother, Crown Prince Akishino, is first in line.
