Considering their wealth, popularity and influence, there’s no doubt that the Kardashians are like the Windsors of America — only that they’re far more powerful.

The Kardashian clan has risen from reality TV stars to America’s royal family. Through their sex tapes, plastic surgery and shotgun weddings, the Kardashians have managed to establish a loud fandom and build a dynasty that is more influential than the British royal family, making them the most powerful clan in the world.

They Have Direct Access To The US President

Unlike the British royals, the Kardashians have direct access to the President of the United States. Kim Kardashian, for instance, easily and successfully convinced President Donald Trump to commute the prison sentence of Alice Marie Johnson, who had been behind bars for 20 years due to drug charges.

They Have A Huge Following

The members of the royal family may be popular on social media, but they can’t be as popular as the Kardashians. While the Windsors take time to stroll through village streets to mingle with their subjects, the Kardashians regularly interact with their fans on social media. This clan has a collective following of more than 500 million.

They Can Make Or Break Brands

While royal followers simply love it when Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle make public appearances with their high-end brands, the Kardashians purchase these high-end brands and make their fans want to buy them for themselves too, giving the brands they wear a boost.

They Can Bring Down Social Media Platforms

The Kardashians also have the power to make or break even the biggest social media platforms. Back in February 2018, Kylie Jenner wrote a disparaging tweet about Snapchat’s redesign and single-handedly tanked the platform’s stock that month, causing it to plummet by $1.3 billion.

They Break Norms

When Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in 2018, the royal family made headlines because of their mixed-race marriage. Long before that, however, the Kardashians had already shifted societal norms through their interracial relationships.

They Can Weigh In On High-Profile Matters

Unlike the British royals, the Kardashians are not bound by centuries-old protocols. That’s why when it comes to high-profile issues, the Kardashians don’t keep their mouths shut. Kim Kardashian is so powerful that when she exposed Taylor Swift as two faced back in 2016, the popular female singer instantly took a beating.
