I assume it's because in addition to his role as a toddler, he's also the future King of England, Scotland (maybe), and part of Ireland, but he didn't really have to do anything to earn that either. Look, don't get me wrong, I find the British monarchy totally fascinating. The waving, the corgis, the fact that anyone thought that Jonathan Rhys Meyers bore even a passing resemblance to Henry VIII, but I think you have to be British to understand why this is a big deal. Like, for most of us, international news coverage of what is at best (barring disability or injury) a basic life skill seems kind of ridiculous coming as it has in the middle of the geo-political horror show of the past few days.
