I don't get my fashion and lifestyle inspiration from glossy magazines or paparazzi shots. Instead, I get it the much healthier way of back-stalking random and tangential members of the various royal families on Instagram. We're the same age, give or take a million dollars, and I'm frothing with jealousy.
What comes to your mind may be the main members of the royal family — your Dukes and Duchesses who all have very official, finely-curated Instagram accounts. That's not what I'm talking about. I'm interested in the royals who are a little further down the line of succession. These rich-but-not-imminently-monarchical royals tend to provide a more unfiltered look at their lifestyle (okay, fine, maybe with a hint of "Valencia") and it's so addicting to watch.
These models, socialites, and world-travelers boasting tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and almost seem like they could be my friends were it not for the fact that they probably have Prince Harry's number in their cell phone. While it's not likely we'll ever find ourselves at the same brunch, I can still live vicariously through their social media. And now, if you click ahead, so can you.
