The knight in shining armor and the romance of a commoner becoming Royal makes the William and Kate story all the more fascinating. Imagine being a relatively ordinary young woman and going to college to complete your education. Along the way you fall in love with a prince, get swept off your feet, and marry, becoming a world-wide, beloved figure. Someday you will be the Queen. And to think, the rest of us just worried about finals in college! The real-life romance behind the story is so compelling and different than the disaster of past royal romances that we can’t help but watch and root for them.
