Slavish praise for feudalistic royal houses

In Saturday's edition of the Irish Independent, there were two articles by Mary Kenny.
One was a hypocritical article which stated that we should "let Princess Diana go" while writing about her at length, and the other was a book review in which she heaped enormous praise on Prince Philip.
Then, on Monday, I was confronted by another article by Ms Kenny, in which she discussed at length the wedding of the monarch of a tiny Mediterranean pseudo-state and its apparent relevance to the world at large.
