Things You'd Never Believe Royals Would Do

Hi, I know the thread name is very lame, but that's the best I could come up with:o :o :o :o :o

I want you to post picture of royals doing the things you'd never believe they would have done for example QEII dancing tango or Princess Caroline doing bungee jumping.

I'm gonna start with Queen Margrethe II:




In the first picture she's obviously fencing and in the second one we see her as a judoka

I never would have guessed Mathlde would leave her baby for four days... I imagine her, as a mother who is so tight with her baby.. she can not leave him longer than a day... OR IS EMMANUEL WITH HER IN tASMANIA??
if that is the case, than i understand...

Perhaps someone should tell Elena: -

1. That is not a motorcycle! :p
2. That is not how you get on or off a horse!

A Vespa is still a motorcycle

BTW: Infanta Elena is the Queen of Snow Sports: she practises ski, ice skating and snowboarding, she should go to Torino or maybe Vancouver

Prince Harry of Wales purchased his own groceries.

I never would have thought we’d still see the Queen on a horse at her age

OK. I'm going to go with my first instinct that came to mind when I saw this thread had been bumped up again.

I never, ever would have imagined that any royal, especially ones that are known to not want for anything and can afford to change outfits up to three times a day would ever wear a pair of shoes for over 40 years.

This is true with The Prince of Wales. This article is dated from back in 2013 so if they were 40 some years old at that time, they're even older now.

Its weird to think that Charles' shoes are probably older than a lot of people we all know and love. Strange... very strange.

Well I can say now that Prince Haakon really needs lessons in how to care for his shoes as he has the very worst shoes ever. So maybe Charles could give him a pair of his shoes to get started with....and please Prince Haakon give the blue suede shoes to the garbage man......

I never thought that Prince Philip would retire, not that he didn't absolutely have every right to do just that. I suppose if I thought about it at all it was that he and the Queen were immortals in a way, irrational though that seems, and would die in the saddle, so to speak.

very typical of upper class behaviour that many of them dotn waste money on "inessentails" and that they buy good stuff that they like which will last a long time and kepe on wearing or using it. If Charles has good shoes that are comfortable they are the ones he will like and keep wearing and they are made to last a long time..
