It may be self-evident but it ain't true that all men and women are created equal - and it isn't any more true in the USA than the UK. Social inequality sees to that. It's true we have institutionalised snobbery and the old bopy network here. It's gradually weakening over the years, though not fast enough. Not suer how I feel about the Royals. They seem a highly dysfunctional lot. They'd be better is they were trained to do something useful in the community when not actually hobnobbing with foreign big nobs (IMHO).
