There probablly isn't any actual royal on here, but I'm sure their Press people and PR people look in on it from time to time to check on public opinion

I don't know if royals visit, but this board does have members who are aristocrats.

For sure royals would get on and have a read...as if they wouldn't. I don't think it's something they would do very often but I'm sure they have. I know I would if I were a royal. See what the greatly uninformed have to say...

You would probably be surprised at how many royals have come on for a read, a laugh, some most likely wishing they could tell many to upshut and get their facts straight..lol.

Doesn't really, given this forum's made of people from all different walks of life stretching the globe and back. Public opinion within this forum stands for very little.

If a handful of people from say, England, don't like Mary of Denmark, I hardly think the Danish court would be concerned by it in the slightest. It's almost near impossible to judge public opinion within such an environment and when that opinion is formed by a foreigner...who on earth would care?

Well I'm sure the ones who give a lot about their image or who are young check once every while. After all wouldn't you be curious? I'm sure everyone of the younger generation has checked at least once

To be honest, I doubt many royals even know forums like this exist and if they do it'll be seen as a type of media to them, where people are talking about them etc just like in the papers. THEN AGAIN, like alot of people have said, anything is possible! It now makes me wonder whether there are princesses out there under assumed names commenting in the fashion threads about how wonderful "they" look.....and about how awful someone else looks!

I don't think so , they have more important to do than surfing in net and look up what other people think of them + it is not very healthy

Agree in principle. They live in such a world that they must actually protect themselves from too much gossipy input. Unhealthy, as you say.

And yet, I could see someone - computer savvy - meandering over just for a peek. Hey, its human nature. I could see the very young or the very old doing so. I'm thinking of human nature. Or instead of doing it themselves they might ask a friend to let them know what the tenor of such internet sites are - better than risking reading something unpleasant about oneself.

In the end, reading these Boards might be a bit surreal - very disjunct from the lives they experience on a daily basis among the people they love, wouldn't you think?

Wouldn't put it past the younger royals for sure! If they have a sense of humor!

I'm sure there are those who have 'connection' who read these pages, but I'd propose they are the members that remain silent.

Surfing

I don't think that royals look through these pages. I certainly wouldn't if I were a royal but I can imagine that they have PR staff that look through here occassionally just to check what the general mood is like. Interesting thought though :-)

Don't know but it would be interesting and I'm sure they'd be delighted at knowing there are individuals who adore them and their family.

I'd venture to say that they most likely don't visit/watch these boards. I'm sure they're updated about public opinion via their press secretaries, or whoever it is that has the job of dealing with the press on their behalf.

I would guess most of them don't (perhaps someone in their staff does), although you never know.

I dont think they do, neither their staff. Why? Because they couldnt care less about what such forums think about them. Its not important at all. There are other measurements in place for them that would be important (official public polls, political movements etc).
And besides, it takes a masochist to read all this stuff about yourself. You either get deep into it what is impossible due to lack of time and in the end you'd end up depressed.

Would you change because of what other people think? No way. One of the first lesson that royals learn is that you cant please everyone, therefore just ignore it. There is no point in reading such forums.

It's not slander, it is libel. Slander is spoken, libel is written. We write. And, actually, I've never seen a post in these Forums that could genuinely be construed as either.

Oh Kitty, libellous statements are not unknown in the Forums! The fact that you haven't seen any is a testament to the fast work of the moderators in deleting them, and if they don't get there first, to the members who click the 'Report Post' button.
