Nobody wants her to be an exception,because nobody won't change the face of the world as she seems to show herself or as some want to show her.
I totally agree with you TamaraKhan.
And I don't think that these royal was shopping when they attends Conferences about poverty???

Perhaps you should re-read the original thread. The conference was not on poverty, as you keep claiming, but childhood mortality.

She participated in the conference as was expected and was praised for her speech in several media outlets. Nobody else seems to have an issue with what she did before the conference, including the other people who attended, they just seem happy that she's there.

Rania

Please DO NOT derail this thread about Rania's shopping while participating at the conference.

Yes, this thread is about Royals and shopping but its about ALL ROYALs not just Rania and surely its not about what is and what is not appropriate to do during a conference. Some posters have already made their feelings QUITE CLEAR ON THE MATTER.

Dear me what a fuss about a normal everyday activity.

Royal can't win with some people.

If they are seen doing "normal" things like (gasp!) shopping they are denounced for lowering their status in the eyes of their subjects and yet if they hide apparently behind the palace walls, tiara or crown on head and get their flunkies to go and do the shopping for them they are denounced again as not living in the real world.

People SHOP, women especially like shopping, Rania and other queens and princesses surely see nothing wrong during visits on their OFF DUTY time going to shops, museums, theatre, restaurants - in other words doing what normal people do in their free time.

These people do not owe us anything during their private moments. What do ordinary people do when they go on business trips away from home that last a few days? They eat, they sleep, they shop, they go out and generally socialise whilst they are not working - if we can do it I see no reason why the should be pilloried for doing the same thing.

Last time I checked shopping was not a criminal offence, to hear some talk on here you would have thought some of these women had been running around the street in a drunken state, with half their clothes off!

What are you expecting the likes of Rania to do? Sit in her hotel room, bag over her head (least she enjoy herself too much) and be brought food in by her flunkies but please don't let her out of the hotel its disrespectful to us all....what madness.

Royals who do their own shopping

I remember reading somewhere that CP Mary showed up unnanounced at Ikea during her pregnancy for a little bit of shopping, or browsing at the least. This got me wondering, do the royals shop like we do? Has anyone ever seen one of them out testing the freshness of the pineapples or trying on a pair of shoes?

I think I remember in the 'early' days of her marriage, Princess Diana used to try shopping, but then would get caught by the press and have to retreat. I know when she visited the US in 1985, she made a visit to JC Penneys.

The swedish royal family, especially the young members, shops on their own all the time.
Last January princess Madeleine was spotted at IKEA byuing some china. And she wears clothes from shops like H&M

But sometimes she gets to shop after hours so that she can be private.

I remember reading reports that Queen Silvia and her daughters were seen shopping at IKEA. This was two years ago I think.

They used to close Harrods for the Queen to do her shopping. Now they definately do not.

Royals should have the freedom of shopping without the press having to take pictures of them. I think they should have the right to do things without it being in the papers or in gossip magazines. Not to forget, even what they brought would be in the magazine, which is not a nice thing. Things should stay private. They have the right to enjoy time. Some of the pictures shown, show them happy to be buying things. Its a shame how magazines/papparzzi do to get money.
