On the 4th of May, the world was gifted with the most adorable royal baby of this century, Louis Arthur Charles. The newly born prince is the great-grandson of Queen Victoria and the great-grandson of King George and Queen Elizabeth. This year, the world is still celebrating the tiny royal newborn and his older sister, Princess Eugenie, who was also born in the same year. The two are making headlines as the first royals in history to be born in the 21st century. As well as making history, the children of King George and Queen Elizabeth have continued the royal tradition by making the headlines off-screen as well.
If you’ve been sleeping on the couch due to quarantine, you might want to perk up and get back into the swing of things. Luckily, our favorite English prince charming is coming back with a bang this year, looking fabulous as ever. Just this April, he made a glamorous appearance at the premiere of his latest film, The King. This film is the story of a deposed king who goes on the run with his family after being exiled by his own people. While the storyline is relatively unoriginal, Pattinson makes it work for the most part. He plays the king, Edward VII, in the film and brings a rich charisma to the part. It’s fair to say that he makes the most of what screenwriters have given him and crafts a character that is both relatable and lovable.
The King premiered in London during the last week of April and received very positive reviews. It holds a 93% approval rating on movie review website Rotten Tomatoes. Critics raved about Pattinson’s portrayal of the complex and intriguing monarch. A.O. Scott of the New York Times labeled Edward VII as a “fascinatingly imperfect antihero” and continues to say of Pattinson’s performance: “In giving us an outsider’s take on a familiar figure, this charming and dashing young actor makes the role his own.”
Becoming a YouTube Star
It seems fitting that the most famous member of the royal family is also one of the most popular YouTube stars. In fact, it’s been said that King George is partially responsible for creating YouTube as we know it. In early 2020, Louis Arthur Charles became the first-ever royal baby to make a million-viewed YouTube video. In the clip, he gives a cute little speech about celebrating with his family after his birthday. The 18-month-old has over 12 million followers on his channel, LACTV, and over 20 million views on a related clip of him dancing with his siblings.
YouTube is the second-largest search engine after Google, accounting for 12% of all searches. The site is frequented by over 2 billion monthly active users, so it’s a great platform for any brand to stand out and be noticed. Whether you’re a well-known brand or a company in need of attracting potential customers or fans, YouTube can help. Just remember to be creative and original while also keeping your content family-friendly.
Royal Wives and Daughters
While the king is the undisputed monarch of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his wives and daughters have also carved out a special place in the hearts of the British people. It’s been said that more people have been photographed with Queen Victoria than any other British monarch. Since her death in 1901, the empire her son founded has continued to grow. Today, the United Kingdom is one of the greatest examples of a monarchy in the world. One of the most renowned and popular women in UK history is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who has reigned over the country for 60 years.
The Queen’s great-grandchildren, currently known as the “Royal Wives and Daughters,” include Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice. Born in the late 1800s, the princesses have continued the queen’s legacy of charming the British public with their youthful escapades and exquisite fashion choices. They’ve starred in their own Royal Family television show, as well as various solo-branded videos. They’ve also graced the covers of glossy magazines such as Vogue and Hello! and been photographed with top designers.
It’s not only the residents of the British Isles who have fallen in love with the Royal Family. Several of the world’s most prominent and popular figures are great-grandchildren or grand-nieces of Queen Victoria. These famous individuals include Elizabeth Taylor, who was the great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria. Princess Grace of Monaco, who was the great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria’s eldest son, Prince Albert, is also frequently photographed with the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
It’s been said that Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is the most eligible bachelor in the world. In 2019, he became the first member of the Royal Family to marry a commoner when he wed Kate Middleton. The wedding was broadcast live on YouTube and received over 12 million views. The newlyweds have an estimated net worth of $150 million. Their wedding channel, which was dedicated to documenting the day, received more than 7 million views.
While it’s been said that Queen Victoria was the “mother” of the nation she founded, she was also the great-grandmother of 11 living royal cousins. These children of the queen include Princesses Alexandra, Victoria, Frances, Mary, and Elizabeth. They’re the great-grandchildren of Prince Albert and Princess Louise. Through Queen Victoria, they’re also the grandchildren of King William IV and Queen Adelaide. This makes for some pretty tight familial bonds in the royal family. It’s quite an extraordinary accomplishment for a girl from Plymouth, Devon, to have created such a large and influential family. The eldest, Princess Alexandra, was the founder of the Duchess of Edinburgh Fashions Ltd, a high-end women’s fashion house. Most of the other royal cousins work in the arts, medical fields, or finance. They’re scattered around the globe, but they all maintain strong connections with the United Kingdom.
