The final chapter offers the authors’ reflections on the future trajectory of the RFBC and the issues it will face as it tries to maintain its appeal in Britain and the world. In particularly, it draws attention to the increasingly blurred boundaries between royalty and celebrity while also highlighting royalty’s distinguishing features. To maintain its distinction from ever-encroaching celebrity culture—and, indeed, to continue to be perceived as “above celebrity”—it will be crucial for the RFBC to retain its aesthetic, cultural, historic, and touristic viability. The chapter concludes with a look at how each of the five types of brands the RFBC contains will face challenges in the coming decades.
