If you were a royal, what would you fear most?

Being the target of an obsessed maniac.......now that would be bad. I sometimes wonder when royals plunge into a crowd how safe they are. On the light hearted side, many royal ladies worry about exposing too much flesh with skirts blowing up and bodices inching downward--and captured on film by the papparazzi!

I would have to agree on that first part. As for the second part, well, Fergie comes to mind on such a thing. Perhaps she should have had this fear a little more often.

I completely agree with the security aspect of the lifestyle. I would fear being a national figure would make me the target of certain people and maniacs as well.

I would also fear losing touch with myself and with humanity. That is coming from my humble beginnings and suddenly living a lavish lifestyle, where I get the best of everything, first, and get treated specially...etc I'd fear getting so immersed into that world where i'd become snobbish and loose touch with reality and what really matters.

Very good point. Royals should do like King Abdullah and go out into the public in secret to see the "real" world.

heres a question-how do u treat your body guards? do u talk to them normally u know say hi good morning, things like this? or do u pay them no attention.
and if i was a royal(never will be) my worst fear would be hmmmmm- its so hard to pick one because there so many worries i would have being in the public eye all the time.
nutty people chasing you, loosing touch with reality, honesty, sincerely careing about people vs being fake in careing about people, having the title go to your head

I would not worry so much about the safety of my children, but for the possibility that they have a life that was "authentic"- one where they were not isolated from reality or forced by duty not to find and follow their own passions in life.

I would fear the press the most because I am an emotional person and I wouldn't like them making up stories of me in the papers I would also fear the paparazzi folowing me, being photographed doing little things like going to the movies or talking to someone in public. The constant bodyguard would drive me crazy because I would hate someone following me every where I go.

If I were a royal I would fear about my kids, who wouldn't have a normal childhood. I would fear that one day they come to me and say: why we can't be like others?!:(
Moreover, the responsibility would be probably to high for me to be a good Queen:(
