I think she worked in a children's orphanage. I know that Queen Fredrika said that she would have liked to have been a nurse.

I believe no one's mentioned the Japanese royals in this thread. Crown princess Masako is especially interesting to me as she was a highly promising diplomat before her marriage 'into' the JRF. Harvard educated, this woman is said to have felt so restricted after becoming a member of the royal dynasty, she succumbed to severe depression.

this is an article about her condition and what caused it in the british Telegraph of a year back or so. Evidently the princess still misses her former high-powered life in which she felt much more in control:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...31/wprin31.xml

a similar thing happened to Dutch prince Claus in the eighties: a highly talented man handicapped and bound, trapped really, by his royal status acquired by marriage. makes you wonder about these crown princely spouses giving up their jobs for life next to a royal..

I don't think that Mary was a lawyer. She might have had a degree in Commerce and Law but that doesn't mean she was qualified to be a lawyer/solicitor/barrister. She seems to have spent her time in advertising and marketing.

She might not have been a lawyer but she had a choice to become one being she has a degree in law.

This is a really interested thread, a lot of thing I had no idea about. I just realised nobody mentioned Letizia's former job as a excellent journalist (although I suppose that's quite well known to most people)

Not necessarily. In America and Britain becoming a lawyer/barrister requires extra education beyond a bachelor's, extra testing, additional background investigations and more.

It sounds like Mary had the basic education to pursue additional education in law but she chose to pursue either business activities or business education rather than law.

(I am sensitive to people being called lawyers when they aren't, because I have been one. In the U.S. for instance you can get a degree in something like Criminal Justice or Business Law but that still doesn't make you a lawyer.)

I am sure Mary is very intelligent and capable. She seems to have become a very good Crown Princess and mother.

Queen Sofia never worked as a nurse. In her days, young girls were trained how to take care of children and she did a course in MITERA (Mother) in Athens to learn the basics about children. Others like Queen Anna Maria and Diana did a course in Switzerland to learn how to be good hostesses in their own homes and how to run their households.

Unemployed Princes

I was deeply shocked by Beatrice d' Orléans/Evreux who threw her husband Prince Michel d' Orleans out of the house because he was unemployed but still remains Countess d' Evreux certainly for her work for DIOR/Spain.
I am sure they are nowadays a lot of unemployed Princes.
