why do many people in the royalty section think the royals can do no wrong?

Because they are irrational royalists blinded by their adoration of royalty

I have seen numerous times when the Royals have not acted in a "royal" manner.

Everybody does wrong but the Royals do far less

You are mistaken in your belief. Most people here are aware that royals are fallible human beings . We discuss the mistakes they make with regularity.
What is clear is that you have a bias; your question portrays an anti-royal attitude.
Monarchy is just another imperfect form of government, filled with imperfect people.

That seems a strange observation given how critical everyone appears to be. But like anyone else the royals are entitled to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. You only have to look at the rubbish posted about the Duke of York who has not been charged with any crime. They all make mistakes, many even acknowledge the fact, and we all move on. Despite that a constitutional monarchy seems far more satisfactory than an equivalent presidential system (and few politicians seem immune from wrongdoing).

The royals can be very wrong - 'twas ever thus. However, most of the accusations leveled at them on this forum are from people who think they can be abolished. If we abolish the monarchy, the royal family will be even richer since they won't be paying around half a billion a year to the Exchequer from their estates. They wouldn't pay so much if they were charged corporation tax and even less if they managed them from the Cayman Islands. Then either we'd give politicians unfettered powers or we'd have to find the money to pay a President and they definitely don't come cheap.

Well, because many people think the royals can do no wrong and those sort of people are attracted to a section called "Royalty". If you're ever in doubt about the blind stupidity of the human race remember that 43% of Americans approve of Trump.
