Okay. Let´s make this a funny thread. If Royals wrote books, what would the titles be? I think a few royals could contribute to the "Dummies" series. But first of all, I think there should be a book called:

"The Finances of a Royal Court - A Guide for Dummies"


Poor Marius could write when he is older:

"How to get over the fact that your younger sister is more popular than you are"


So what other books do you think various royals could write?

Of course, Maxima could write "Wear a stylish and colorful wardrobe all of the time!"

In fact, Maxima and Märtha Louise could co-author "Finding your personal style: Ways to find a niche wardrobe for yourself."

Here's a few more that I thought up during my lunch break: :flower:

Crown Princess Maxima
"Color Me Orange -How to Stylishly Incorporate Your Country's Color Into Every Aspect of Your Wardrobe"
Whether you're stuck wearing orange, magenta, or worse yet, crazy mixed-up patterns for traditional events, let Maxima's sure-fire advice transform your look from mascot to majestic!



Ernst August von Hannover
"The Importance of Being Ernst - My Life Thus Far"
A frank, honest and introspective account of Ernst August's life in the spotlight. The Prince candidly recounts his "Gee Whiz" incident at the Turkish Pavilion in 2000, protests his reputation as "The Punching Prince" and gamely speculates why he alone can look stylish in a brown jacket and blue jeans. A must-read for every tabloid devotee!



Princess Madeleine of Sweden
Taming Your Inner Brat - How to End Self-Defeating Behaviors That Result From Royal Privilege"
In this royal "It Girl" guide, Princess Madeleine dispenses youthful wisdom regarding the impropriety of plunging necklines, immodest swimming floss and other less than nobel....er, noble modes of dress and behavior. A best-seller in Monaco!

Prince Henrik of Denmark
"Apprenez à parler det dansk sprog avec moi! Prince Henrik’s Royal Tutorial"

You’re planning an official visit to Denmark, but good heavens, who can figure out how to say anything other than goddag and tak for det? Let Prince Henrik use his 37 years of experience as a Danish citizen to teach you how to royally bluff your way through banquets by using easy words in English or lapsing into French altogether!

The way of selling the books to danes like myself, would be:

Do you always wonder, what that guy is trying to say? Do you sometimes get bewildered, when the eloquent prince choose to enlighten us: are there really such a great resemblance between Danish and French? This is a once-of-a-lifetime opportunity to learn how to understand The prince consort.
