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.

T'was fun reading the things here. I have a dream of being like this so..

If I were born a daughter of a reigning monarch, I'd strengthen the promotion of causes against prostitution (esp. child prostitution), human trafficking, drugs, etc illegal and absolutely immoral even if it would cause my death because I know such things are so controversial.
I'll warn my teachers/profs that they must give me grades according to my performance. They must not overrate/underrate me. They must be fair with me.

I'd not attend formal occasions of other royal families though, even if everyone in my family is invited. I'd make it clear that's not one of my agendas. I'll just have mama or papa explain to uncle and aunt that their stubborn niece can't be dragged to attend.
However, I'll go to my uncles and aunties and ask permission from them to let me go through their royal history archives, and all photo albums past and present! Hehehe!

Like Mariel, I would visit hospitals, most especially hospitals in third world countries to see for myself what they lack. I'll try (and maybe force my papa) to give me money to buy medical equipment/facilities one at a time, or launch a donating campaign for this cause. I will definitely not take even a cent from the donations!! I hate stealing! I will accompany my assistants when they buy so that there'll be no anomaly happening.

If ever there will be cameras following me in my personal outings, I'll not worry. They'll just go away when they realise I went to an ordinary mall and do my groceries, eat somewhere, whatever very ordinary things people do. Those aren't worthy of publishing. With the love life, I'll also just keep cool. Anyway, boyfriend and I will not do something attention-grabbing. We're not into that. And we'll just go to gardens, parks, wherever scenic. If we want souvenirs of our trip, we'll approach one papparazzi and ask him/her "Please take a picture of us. The scenery is so beautiful isn't it?" and hand that prazzi our camera xD

I will be close friends with Prince Harry and introduce him to very nice women who will love him for who he is inside! I'll be his intrusive matchmaker.

If I were born to a reigning monarch's sibling or distant relative, I'll be finer. I'll not attend even family events except those very private-no photographers events

I would strive for world peace and work to end child hunger.

Waitaminute... that's a prewritten answer for when I win the Miss America contest. I think I can scrap that now. Its decades old.

If I was royal, most likely I would have been raised very differently from how I actually was and, for all I know, would be a totally different person than I am now. If I married into royalty, I would have had to adjust to that royal family's criteria and that would have affected my day to day life also.

I am, however, Queen of Belly Achers (what we named our little plot of land in the forest) and it suits me just fine. No worries, no hurries, no fuss, no muss and ordinary days doing ordinary things. That suits me just fine.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.

I would take care more about children in my empire. I would fight against hunger and I would get rid of some overseas department.

If I was heir to the French Throne(French American) id do my very best to improve the lives of the lower classes of the French people and even the middle class. Doing this would gain favor from them in having me as there King. I wouldnt really pay atttention towards the Rich or high classes. In fact, i'd probably tax them more. But Id imitate a lot of the German policies and perhaps even the Danish and try and imply it into my system to better sustain the people and have them happy.

Education would be free. BUT!! if that citizen failed a number of times(there will be a limit) then he will be required to pay(With financial aid) but Im positive no one would fail because id make it a law for all schools to encourage the students to pursue a good life and how failure is not option.

Id present myself as a strong person to the eyes of the French people and restore the days where there was Glory and prosperity under the King of Charlemagne.

Also, any evidences where the person did INDEED rape the women then that man will will be stripped of what he used to rape her. This way, he will always be reminded of the harsh treatments towards a women.

Teachers will be given a raise by the progress of there students in schoool. This way, itd encourage teachers to do there best for the students.

Id focus on the French military as well. How effective can I be in the middle east that can bring aid and help defend countries from rogue organizations or fanaticals? but id be very reserved. I would only use my military for France, not for others. I will make it my lifes goal to make sure France does not need to rely on anyone militarily or economically to help itself or others.

Id also make it a way that if and IF some republican decided to remove me or the French Monarhy would mean a division within the country. The removal of my family would mean France being divided into small states. Once a states, they'd have the option to unify or remain a state. If there is a vote for them to decide, it'd make it a way where it'd take 2years and they'd have to remove the entire consitution and recreate it. Which Im sure that process alone is torture. But even before that ever happens. Id make sure Id have many good relations with all the people who will be leaders of these french states. Unification would mean these newly autoamtically elected presidents of there state would remove there new powers of governance, meaning they wont have as much power to govern anymore and we all know how people dont like that(History can vouch for that).

In all of Europe, I want to be looked upon as Strong(Like Putin). Takes no ones sht. But Id create a strong relationship with the Germans, since they're basically my neighbors.

If I were a royal: I think I would thoroughly enjoy my wealthy status and all the perks that come with hypocrisy here! Because I know the price to pay would be the spotlight and criticism... i would avoid any scandal related to criminal actions and make sure my employees would be treated well... I would try to do good when possible and I would dedicate myself to some charites close to my heart... Uhm... nothing more comes to my mind as of now...
