      @Beau D'Arcey I think it's impossible to fully understand if you're not British. To be clear, I'm not a Brit myself but I've talked to many of them about it and the way I see it - the royal family represents the culture, the history, the tradition of Great Britain, which is incredibly important for them and is a part of their identity

    Michael Caine was filming a movie where he needed a southern accent, and he had the good fortune to meet Vivien Leigh.

      His accent in that was great but it's pretty wrong in Billions, because it's supposed to be a very specific New York City accent (Staten Island) and he just can't do it right. Great actor, but accents are tough.

    As someone who spent most of my life in the South, I've never seen a British performer convincingly do that one. The British accent has to be the coolest one ever.

In other words I admire the Queen's leadership and I admire Diana's Humanity That being said I am an American that really does not understand the British system of government.

      I love the UK, been there plenty times, and you're right. It's nothing special, it's just another European country, but I still love them regardless. Fun folk, nothing like they are portrayed in Hollywood and the American mindset. Non-Brits who don't have much experience with the country tend to think of the stereotypical rich elite in London when they hear the term "British". It's like saying all of America is like New York, or all of France is Paris, all of Japan is Kyoto etc.

      Why? They have a long tradition of stage performance and acting; we don't have that; they are (generally) well-spoken, literary minded, and have a living example of class and decorum, we don't have that.

The royals dont seem to have any particular talent, or anything that should give them fame, other than the fact that they had royal parents. (And those parents don't seem to have any particular talent, or anything that should give them fame either. Why do you guys care so much about the "royals"?? (in other words, what's so special about them that they deserve such admiration?? ...I'm genuinely curious.)
