It used to be that princes and princesses lived in a land of fairytales and make-believe—especially to kids growing up in the U.S., where our version of royalty is, for better or worse, more in the Oprah/Kardashian vein. Then, of course, we got older and realized (jealously) that princes and princesses *are* real...just not here.
Well, newsflash: We've actually had our fair share of aristocratic action on this side of the pond. In fact, lots of royal families have made their homes here in the States.
Not too shabby in the neighbor department, huh?
