“Someone just tell the truth.” Meghan Markle repeated these five words throughout her interview with Oprah, which aired Sunday, March 7 on CBS.

Here’s the thing about the English monarchy: they don’t really do anything anymore. Thanks to the country’s parliamentary monarchy system, the Queen and her family have no actual power when it comes to lawmaking or governing the country. The job is often purely ceremonial and at some times, even downright performative. A far cry from the powerful previous Kings and Queens, the Royal Family, at this point, are more media personalities than global leaders.
