People love to make the royals look good in books, movies, or real life, no matter what. There were a lot of Disney movies that we watched when we were younger, and most of them were about princesses finding their happily ever after. Many of us have dreamed of being a long-lost princess and finding happiness since we were little. To honor that dream, let’s name the best royal romance books to read, from young adult books to adult books.
Royal stories are great, but you can’t forget the terrible things they’ve done. They are almost always to blame for the colonization of a lot of other places. They’re to blame for the death of cultures that were alive before they came. I wish we didn’t think so much about royalty. Disney gave us a picture that looked good and didn’t do any harm, but the truth is very different. We might like royal romance books because we want a good ending to something that has bad roots. We want to see if there is a chance that something good could come out of a broken institution. Even though I don’t like the royals in real life, we can always hope for the best in fiction.
