Two things that are nice to know about royalty:
1) The British royal family, except for formal occasions, do not use limos; in fact, they drive themselves in surprisingly modest vehicles. The queen often tools around blighty behind the wheel of her Range Rover. Her husband, Phil, prefers to pass incognito along the Kings Road driving a London taxi (perhaps a clever pickup ploy in his younger days). Charles has a few Astin Martins, but the royal boys drive a Volkswagen Golf and an Audi when they shop the High Street. Diana, of course, has had quite enough of cars, thank you.

2) Gwyneth Paltrow is such Hollywood royalty now that her framed photo hangs alongside those of Sidney Poitier, John Wayne, and Gary Cooper – at the McDonald’s on Hollywood Boulevard.
