if you were hired as a royal assistant, which royal would you choose?

Lets say you are hired as an assistant to a Prince or princess, Which royal would you choose?

me... I would choose Crown Prince Philippe of Belgium. Just to see what his royal life is like.

In that case you have chosen the most difficult royal to work for. Not that Prince Philippe is that bad, but the situation of the Belgian State and its monarchy is só complictated and so fragile, that you have to walk on eggs the whole time.

By the way, I don't know how it is in other countries, but in my country you can not apply for a job at the Court. You are 'requested' via-via. Often the Court sends signals to Departments or 'befriended services' (the armed forces, the diplomatic service, majors, etc.) to look for 'suitable' candidates. In all discretion, and often by surprise, the candidates are suddenly encountered with an invitation by the Bureau of the Grandmaster to Her Majesty The Queen.

An investigation of you and your family/friends/surroundings by the Intelligence- & Security Service is part of the procedure. And the Dutch royals do not have personal assistants. They have secretaries, aides-de-camp, valets, footmen (lackeys), etc.

And, by the way: if you work for the Dutch royals, you can forget your career planning. Under Queen Beatrix there is a 'carroussel policy' to prevent cliques to be formed at the Court. (Becoming too familiar and close, or getting too much knowledge). It is her policy that after 2 or 3 years staff is re-organized to 'befriended services'. Only her most personal confidantes, a dozen of Hofdames and Dames du Palais, led by the Lady Grandmastress are excluded from this iron rule.

I would like the Duke of York

I think he needs a bit of good PR. I'd like to see if I could make that happen.

I agree with you, I'd also choose Victoria. She seems like the easy-going type who would be fun to work with, and show you respect.

I'm torn--I'd love to work for HRH Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall for the same reason as Nichola, but also because I feel like she is incredibly dedicated and if I "got in good" with her, she and I would get along. She seems like a lovely lady.
The other I would choose are the York Princesses--they need someone to direct them to a good stylist. I'd love to help them shop!

My favorite royal is HRH The Princess of Hanover and has been for the past 32 years, so working for her and the Amade organization would be a dream come true.

I would go for Anne, The Princess Royale. Her "no nonsense" temperment suits me.

I would choose Cristina of Spain. She seems to be the most down-to-earth of the siblings and yet she manages her life very well, too.

I thing I should not make a worthy assistant for any of them! Not really!

But well, if this could be for real I should choice Princess Maxima . We could speak Spanish to her, and since she live in my same neighborhood and spent all her childhood there too (we are almost of the same age), we should be able to speak about thinks that both of us knows well. There are some magazine owners near my flat that can remember her well, as the owners of "Librería Nelly".

And if I was not Princess Maxima's assistant, I guess I could became an assistant od Duchess of Cornwalls. She is very nice and down-to-earth.

But the one I liked the most and was as I understand how a Royal must be, the one who knows what Monarchy was and was ready to live or dead for this concept was the late Countess of Paris. She is dead by now, but I think I should have liked to be an assistent of this great lady. Madame was the kind of noble lady I always admired.

Vanesa.

I would work for her, Victoria or Máxima; they all seem to be very down-to-earth and very respectful with other `people, they seem to be very kind

HRH Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

Finally, I would present a style all of her own and given my background in the field of fashion, I would work some real wonders with this beautiful Dane

I'm completely torn between the following Ladies & Gentleman:

The Duchess of Cornwall - she is so down to earth, and I'm sure loads of fun to work with.

The Prince of Wales - I agree and share most of his views, so for me it would be not only interesting, but useful.

Crown Princess Maxima - cheerful life is guaranteed

Princess Anne - agreed completely with Russophile

Queen Elizabeth - it would be amazing to work with someone, who belongs to the 'Old Royals' (and I don't mean the age).

Crown Princess Mette-Marit - I'm sure it would be a very easy and pleasant job.

Crown Princess Victoria - pleasant, yet it will give clear idea what a Royal should be and do.

I would choose Letizia...and try to steal Felipe away - I KID, I KID!!!

I think Victoria would be my choice. I think the similarities of our age would make it fun.

Definitely for CP Letizia! I would love to see Spain and to see Felipe.
Letizia seems to be a very opinionated woman and I love that! She's very independent too.
