Well i think Stephanie of Monaco is shocking, but not innappropriate. I think the role of princesses these days are becoming more modernised and i think its a completely different job description to what it was before. For a country with royalty, for it to be popular they must be modern. My opinion only.

whats shocking is that she was a pop singer, a circus woman, lived in a trailer,her marriages and some speculated involvement with one of her husbands or partners with drugs.

But i am not judging her, i think she is a kind sweet natured lady, who just makes some bad decisions sometimes

with stephanie-think about her position. she is so far down the line in regard to the throne. she is like a female version of prince edward. who didnt stay in the army which both his older brothers had to do.

I have anumber of shocking royals. Here's list my:

1. P. Harry - little boy lost.
2. Charles & Camilla - an enduring love indifferent to any moral compass.
3. Moroccan Royal Family - GBP 145 million per year of poor taxpayers' money. Not even the British royals cost that much.
4. P. Stephanie - one bad choice after another whether in men or careers.
5. P. Haya - a wasted Oxford education.
6. K. Mswati III - blatant extravagance in the face of his people's poverty. Recently acquired wife no. 13 and a Maybach.
7. Saudi Royals -questionable if not "terrifying" investments and financial backing.
8. P. Ernst von Hanover - frequently inebriated.
9. Nepalese Royals - questionable methods of solving both family and national issues.
10. Greek Royals - thy kingdom went.

Two things I think that would be shocking or inappropriate royal behavior would be to purposely throw yourself down a flight of stairs while pregnant with the heir and to ghost-write a biography of yourself then lie to your in-laws about your level of participation in the writing.

And you could add Barry Manakee, James Gilbey, James Hewitt, Will Carling, Oliver Hoare, Hasnat Khan, Bryan Adams, Kevin Costner, Dodi al Fayed, plus the others we don't know about; the phone calls made from the telephone box outside Kensington Palace; the "fallings out" with mother, sisters, brother, Sarah Ferguson, Elton John, George Michael, private secretaries, bodyguards, assorted staff etc etc etc; and the constant attemps to upstage just about everybody. Just for starters!

You're right. I should add Diana to the list. She's still shocking seven years after her death. I don't think she's going away anytime soon either.

Are you talking about shocking to the public or shocking according to what the court expects?

We are talking about being shocking generally,and especially for royals, have they to be more "appropriate"?than normal people?

Is that a critereas for being shocking for royals?if it is ,you should put other royals on the top of your list,you are shocked because this informations about the caost of the moroccan royalty made public by them,see that they weren't obliged,but if you compare them to other royals especially middle-eastern,you will more shocked,they spend thousands of millions not only 145!I was listening to prominent french jewel designer,who said that a ME prince asked him to make a 6millions$ diamond parrure for his little girl who had 6years because she saw that in a magazine!

Poor taxpayers?

there's no taxes in morocco,the few people who pay taxes pay few amounts, the MRF took this money other ways, not from taxes or civil list as it used to be for european royalties!

The most shocking royal is Prince William. I mean the most shocking thing about him is that he doesn't do ANYTHING shocking. How can ANYONE live the way this man/boy lives??? Second, is Harry. He is shocking ,but I still LOVE him.:o
