With the arrival of His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge, there has been a lot of fuss over the British Royal Family. That got us thinking about the other royal families—the ones with no claim to monarchy, but comprising members that are considered kings of the box office or Queen Bs. Here we look at some famous families that are as close to royalty as their talent, fame, and money will allow:
With tickets to Beyoncé’s Mrs. Carter Tour selling out in minutes and Jay Z’s latest album, “Magna Carter Holy Grail,” going platinum before it even dropped, the pair is indubitably one of the most powerful couples in the music business, and beyond. Baby Blue Ivy makes three, and has been attracting as much attention as her famous parents. Bow down.
This clan is so adorable you almost forget about Brad and Angelina’s shady beginnings. The drama is behind them, and they are both still killing the game (not mention putting in work as activists and philanthropists). They seem to always been in the public eye, but everyone–down to youngest, twins Knox and Vivienne–seems to handle the fame with grace.
Will Smith is one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, and his wife, Jada Pinkett, has made a name for herself as well. Fans grew up on Will and Jada (though separately at first), and now children Jaden and Willow are stars in their own right.
Victoria and David Beckham may seem like total opposites: she the sleek, “posh” fashionista; he the rugged, tattooed ball player. Yet they go together perfectly. The couple and their children are always fun to watch, especially with the new addition of baby Harper.
The Paltrow + Martins
Who better to best buddies with Beyonce and Jay Z than a fellow power couple? While Gwyneth Paltrow lights up the big screen and gives Auntie Martha (Stewart) a run for her money, hubby Chris Martin delivers memorable hits with his band, Coldplay. If Apple Martin was snapped with Blue Ivy, the Internet would probably explode.
