I would prefer to be a minor royal, I'm a private person und love quite hours for myself. So I'd try to stay out of the limelight and just doing, the things I love doing. Like: expanding my knowledge of many subjects, history, the arts, architekture, languages, and doing expensive sports, like having horses. I would still follow my profession (advising other people how to bring out the best in oneself) because, that is, what I love doing.

So some of the perks, and some of the responsibilities, would do for me nicely. :)

If I were Heir to the Irish throne (I'm Irish though currently live in London) I would try to connect to the middle and working classes, this is the key to a successful and healthily monarch, and of course an throne which your heir can inherit. As heir I would set up charities to help the unemployed (especially the youth) personally donate food from the royal palaces to the homeless, I would be politically active and be vocal about the continuing immigration of Irish youth, and highlight the failings of the current government.

I would send my son to Blackrock College in Dublin, as an Roman Catholic I believe it is important that the second in line has a good religious education as well as good language skills including being able to speak fluent Irish Gaelic.

I would also be an advocator of LGBT rights, I believe nobody should be put down because if their sexuality.

When I finally become King I will continue to support charities and will advertise Ireland abroad and will continue to point out the failings of the Irish government, I will hand many of my former duties in to my son the Crown Prince.

I like your idea of giving palace food to the homeless.
If I was a Princess I would set up an integrated play group for Royal children and special needs kids at the Palace.
Keep calm and watch Siegfried- from a wall hanging my parents gave me for my birthday! LOL!

Well, if I was married to a royal, I would be pregnant like right after the wedding so I wouldn't have to work that much

If You Were a Royal Then....?

If I were royal I would be on the brink of suicide. I am already freaked at the thought of normal people having no privacy, I can't imagine being royal and havig any less. They can't talk on the phone, can't text, can't write a letter or someone might steal it, and how do you know they aren't bugging your house or the restaurant you are eating at.

If you were royal what would your charities be?

If I got to choose my patronages, that would be wonderful. I'm not sure they get a lot of choice. I would be an advocate for research into rare diseases, especially the ones royals have traditionally had. I would be a patron of whatever type of art drew me in at the moment....I haven't looked at art in a long time, so I'd have to take some gallery tours with good professional advisors.
I would never wear heels higher than 2 l/2 inches, and would never wear a skirt shorter than my knees. It would be wonderful fun to have dresses made for me by a designer, of very nice material. I would wear a tiara for formal occasions, but only a lowrise one so as not to be ostentatious, and probably my tiara would have tanzanites and aquamarines in it....oh maybe I need a ruby tiara and a periodot tiara as well, with a few diamonds but nothing too huge.
If I were a royal I would be concerned about my children's future and safety, in these perilous times, and would fuss a lot about them when they were away at school. I'm not sure what school I'd send them to, but I'd have a lot of fun surveying the schools and choosing wisely; if I couldn't find the right one I might even start a new school, one grade at a time as some new schools do, and because I was a teacher I would interview the teachers myself.
The best part of being royal would be access to interesting people. I would be able to arrange a visit with people who had information I wanted, or people I especially admired. I would make frequent visits to hospitals and clinics to cheer people up, and gain knowledge about my country's medical system, which I know would be frustrating as most medical systems are under-funded and run the staff ragged, and I wouldn't be able to change that. So I'd go home and have a glass of merlot with my husband the Prince or Duke, and try to forget the worst I'd seen.
I would go to church occasionally, but I would make a point of supporting spiritual authors I favored such as C.S. Lewis...I would undoubtedly be a patron for whatever foundations support Lewis work, like the theatrical company in America which tours plays by Lewis. People would be happy that Princess Me would always be there when a Lewis play opened, so maybe they would have to alter my itinerary for safety's sake.

I would have a Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment at least once a week, and a preferably even have a personal trainer such as Prince Daniel, the ideal prince charming.
