After reading this thread I have the idea many people think that royals enjoy a life funded by the taxpayer and in return cut a ribbon here or a visit there. In most monarchies only a very core part of the royal family enjoys a form of a state income. All royals outside that circle have to earn their own living. That counts for Spain, for Denmark, for Luxembourg, for the Netherlands. Let us take the Netherlands as an example, the only three royals to receive a state income are the King, Queen Máxima and Princess Beatrix. All other members of the (extended) royal family do not receive any Euro and have to provide in their own income. Let us see what they do and be surprised how active all these persons (grandchildren of a Queen) are:

Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands (brother of the King): works in Brussels as a chef de cabinet at the European Comission

The Duke of Parma (cousin of the King): works in Amsterdam as director of the Institute for Sustainable Innovation & Development

Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme (cousin of the King): works in Amsterdam as interior designer specialized in historical residential interiors

Prince Jaime de Bourbon de Parme (cousin of the King): works in Vatican City as Ambassador representing the Kingdom of the Netherlands at the Holy See

Princess María Carolina de Bourbon de Parme (cousin of the King): works at the United Nations in Geneva where she leads Emergency Response Missions

Prince Maurits van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven (cousin of the King): independent businessman with a company developing and promoting electric cars

Prince Bernhard van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven (cousin of the King): independent businessman with a company owning a lot of prime real estate in and around Amsterdam

Prince Pieter-Christiaan van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven (cousin of the King): is a lieutenant-colonel in the Royal Marechaussee (a constabulary force in the armed forces) and works at the Operational Staff in The Hague

Prince Floris van Oranje-Nassau, Van Vollenhoven (cousin of the King): works as a director of KPMG Corporate Finance in Amsterdam

Bernardo Guillermo (cousin of the King): independent businessman and owner of an industrial design studio in New York

Nicolás Guillermo (cousin of the King): independent businessman and graphic designer

Juliana Guillermo (cousin of the King): independent businesswoman and artist in London (paintings, sculptures)

It probably all depends on how you see a specific job, for me an elementary school teacher would be intelligent enough to teach children stuff, sometimes strict and sometimes lenient and especially know when to be which :)
Sometimes playful and like to hang out with kids and especially: being able to not put yourself first in the job...
For me Sophie, Countess of Wessex could be one...

Since he is fluent in French, English, German, Spanish, and Luxembougish HGD Guillaume of Luxembourg could work for the UN as some type of special envoy or ambassador. His wife Stephanie could teach Russian literature at the high school or college level since she has a Master's degree in it.

Charlene of Monaco could open a string of global swim camps for under-privileged children financed by her husband's very deep pockets.

Charlotte Casiraghi could model full time, or follow her late grandmother's path to Hollywood and become a film star.

I think Stephanie of Luxembourg would do great with a career that involved working with the elderly.

But how, and in what capacity? She expressed an interest in the problems of the aged during her engagement interview but two years later there has been but one visit to a rest home with Guillaume(that we know about)

On the other hand she has been described by her mother-in-law Maria-Teresa(in Point de Vue) as one of the most intelligent people she has ever met. She is said to often be reading 3-4 books at once. During one interview I saw her light up when she was asked to discuss her favorite authors and their work. She is a linguist, like her husband.

I think all of that points to a fulfilling career in academia, if she had chosen that path for herself.

Princess Madeleine said she would like to be in interior design in the future, therefore I think she would work in that profession if she was not a royal.

Princess Laurentein of The Netherlands is Patron for Literacy and Learning. She might be a teacher or a children's librarian.
