Curiosity about a perceived fairytale life
There’s something charming and seductive about following the lives of a family that makes it look easy.
For normal people, life is a constant struggle and attaining success is hard. But royals are fascinating because they inherited wealth, and social influence, and style, and fame, and they live this fairy tale life in castles - all the stuff that we grow up on.

Our fascination for the royal families is rooted in our basic human desire to be social and to mind the people we admire and understand.
With famous media figures, people we learn about and celebrities we often live some of our lives through them.
This behavior can create a one-sided relationship in which someone becomes attached to a person without actually interacting with them in any meaningful way.
Parasocial behavior examples include: being emotionally devoted to your favorite TV show, sports team, or to the lives of the royal family members.
Because people are curious about celebrities, media outlets keep covering them. And because celebrities are constantly in the media, people take notice. The cycle repeats, time and time again.
The first step in approaching a negative situation with an optimistic outlook is to accept what you can’t change.
Once you’ve done that, you have 2 options: reframe ( look for an opportunity instead of ruminating on the loss ) or divert (shift your focus to something else).
The postponement of Tokyo 2020 was not a decision taken lightly: it came after the pressure to cancel or delay the event due to the risks of the new virus.
The financial blow of canceling the games will be substantial for Japan, which has already invested at least $12.6 billion into the 2020 Olympics; by some estimates, it would reduce Japan’s annual GDP growth by 1.4%.
