Oh, indeed. If I were known as a royal (and I suppose that's it's main meaning), I would protect the wolves in Idaho and Montana, which Obama has delisted, I would encourage sustainable small farming practices, Zero Population Growth or Negative Population Growth, birth control - I'd go all out with my beliefs. If somehow I were an American royal, I'd argue for much higher taxation of the Very Rich.

I'd have a person to help dress me if money were no issue, and to keep my clothes in order. I'd hire my daughter to look after my hair and make-up and pay her an exceedingly good wage. I'd have 10-12 dogs and 3 cats.

I'd have an iPad2 (whoops, I already do!) and yes, Burberry trenchcoats (although, where I live right now, I would look very out of place), a sailboat, a Jaguar (old style, restored) and a tiara.

All of this I would use to better the planet!

(I already have a handsome prince - whom I would elevate to King Consort).

if that question were to be asked, then you'd have to specify whether the person was born rich or became rich through work...

and it is a difficult question, the answers would make you think how empty are someone's words...

if someone was born rich, whether he/she will help someone else out, it all depends how that person was raised by their family, how influenced by others that person became and all.
if someone became rich through work, it also depends on the person, the way that person's mind developed, in what way it works... some people became millionaires and they're still stingy and think they don't have enough money. They keep working themselves like crazy, praying they will win a lottery, not caring about others, and still they have a round sum of money which they haven't touched, safely located in a bank account.

what i would do if i were filthy rich? i do not know, ask me when i'll be filthy rich, you might get a much more accurate answer than now.

Hummmm...what if I were filthy rich is always a fascinating subject. I wouldn't want to be royal or even well-known, so I could live in Heaven on Earth, where the police are British, the cooks French, the mechanics German, the lovers Italian, and it is all organized and run by the Swiss.

...I would use my influence to make sure that children with special needs (and any children really) get what they need without having to deal with red tape.

When not working (royal duties) I would research every historical archive (to investigate gossips), visit all the castles, palaces, museums, touch every piece of art and open every cupboard to see if i could find a new "old" tiara as Queen Silvia did.

I would want to do a lot like Prince Harry is doing. Setting up a charity that helps the least fortunate children there can be, the orphans of AIDS. HRH Prince Henry (Harry) and HRH Prince Sesiso of Lesotho are amazing men.

While many royals have donated their time and money to various causes/charities, they are still very wealthy at the end of the day. It seems as though this is a 'conflict of interest' to me. Visit an orphanage during the day, then be driven to the airport to board a plane to the south of France to vacation on the Cote d' Azure.
If were royal I would have a villa on an exclusive island resort in the Caribbean, staffed with only good-looking, toned, tanned men who would cater to my every need, and this would be how I would to spend my winters, I have not even begin to state how I would occupy my summers...
Also, I would never say I was living a 'normal' life, as this expression is relative to what one believes is 'normal.' Maybe choosing to turn one, or two, of my 15 palaces into an orphanage, provide for the needs each child, and provide for a well-paid staff in the orphanage.

If I were a Royal, I'd ditch most of the palaces, ditch most of the jewels, and would give the proceeds to charity to help the poor, and would live simply.

I'd stay totally out of politics but would do a lot of charity work.

I would have a personal trainer and chef (they would make sure that I exercised and that I ate healthy).

I would also have someone help me pick out clothing and have my gowns made by the best designers. I would shop at the Mall of Millenia.

I would have a charity that gave to children in need in the United States. Or given money for homes to be built for those who have no homes.

Some of the money I would give away. I don't need a palace or a castle to live in. A nice home in the Winter Park area of Florida would do. Or a fancy home on Peninsula Drive in New Smyrna Beach Florida would do. Or Ponce Inlet. Or Heathrow in Lake Mary Florida. All those are nice places to live.

I think you've just described Oprah.

I would not be as famous as the European royals and nobles because I won't be reigning but I would still be head of my own dynastic house.
And help people who are in need give back to the community through
charities and foundations as such.

I would live in a mansion or a castle. I would have a large clothes budget. My favorite part of the job would be travel. I would devote a lot of time to charity, using Princess Di as a role model.
I would hire a good shrink to help me with the stress of public life.

If I were a royal, I'd buy a pretty Georgian house in the country & a Kensington townhouse, both furnished with antiques, glassware, Farrow & Ball wallpaper and Laura Ashley settees. Each house would have a specially built library to house my vast book collections. I'd shop at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols while also wearing high street labels. I'd want to work as a lecturer (if that was possible) at Oxford University. I'd support a lot of charities and causes, giving away a sizeable proportion of my income. I'd also have a gorgeous antique jewellery collection!

I'd live in a beach house as my permanent home and have a home in Washington DC. I'd love to have a large family too with 5 children. Send them to the best schools/universities. Have family gatherings several times a year.

Don't really care much for the clothes & jewelry though.

Thank you, I once heard this saying, but I couldn´t remember it I hope it´s ok that I have taken it as my signature?
