Fresh off the heels of the most romantic moment in couples history, I am left wondering who we have in the United States that can remotely be called our own royal couple. Enter Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson. Don’t look now but the slow burn of promoting the next and final-ish chapters of the Twilight Saga has begun, kicking off with an exclusive cover story in Entertainment Weekly. The timing seems intentional, can’t you hear them in the EW cover meeting now, “Let’s put Bella and Edward on the cover, America is drunk with romance thanks to the Royal Wedding“. Yes, Jess Cagel, there is some truth to that in terms of drunk anyway, but Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are no Kate Middleton & Prince William. Not by a long shot. The Kate and William obsession makes you realize that we really are starving for a little royalty here. In the Golden Age of Hollywood, the movie stars were our version of royalty. The marriage between Clark Gable & Carole Lombard sparked a frenzy. As did the marriage between Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio. Hollywood stars today are not nearly as glamorous or exciting. Sure, we have Brad & Angelina, who are stunning but they don’t hold a candle to the magic of Liz & Dick. The only other royalish situation that we might have had was with Camelot and the Kennedys. But when John John went down in his plane on that fateful summer day, it ended that era, and whatever legacy of American royalty we might have had. And Caroline Bessette was no Kate Middelton really either, may she rest in peace.
