This is just humorous, nothing more. I'm reading the UK newspaper site, The Daily Mail which talks about the UK Royals visiting NYC for the first time. The article is amusing, not for the content, but for the way the British paper describes the visit. Here's one example:

"The Cambridges will take their court-side seats at the basketball game in the trendy New York suburb of Brooklyn and watch local team the Brooklyn Nets take on the Cleveland Cavaliers tomorrow night...The Duke and Duchess are both sporty and competitive and are likely to enjoy the spectacle of watching the towering sportsmen."

Their ancestors used to own NYC prior to 1783.

Why do people still care about royalty that has no authority to do anything?

I think it is a hangover from the childhood brainwashing of fairy tales with the handsome prince saving the beautiful princess.
Old nonsense dies hard, especially with the mentally challenged.

Suburb in British English is used to refer to any neighborhood out of the city center.

They have no job and receive money from the tax money via the government. So basicly they're a welfare family. Wonder if the wealthy of NYC will welcome other welfare families with such glee?

With several RENT CONTROLLED castles.

I have often wondered why the British, seemingly not a particularly dimwitted race, permit these drones to exist?
