This is true of Edward. He would love to do that.

I think Margrethe would be an excellent commercial actress. She could sell anything! She is beautiful but not too beautiful. She is mature looking in a good way. She is quite personable and has a nice personality. But I agree that she would do illustrations and write books.

Silvia: Runs a charity. Not sure on what though. Maybe like the WCF. And she would run it and she would travel the world talking about their important work and they would have commercials and she´d be in it. I mean who wouldn´t want to see her on TV!

Carl Gustaf: A race car driver or the owner of a manor.

Harald would probably be like a professional sailors. I mean like doing Yacht races and the like.

Sonja. Maybe Public Relations or running a ski lodge!

Mary worked in advertising? I'm so confused. I've heard she's a lawyer, that she was a real estate agent and that she worked for Microsoft. Now you say advertising? Which was it?

Any ideas for the Kings and Queens of Norway and Sweden?
yes you are right about Marie Chantal.

Mary never worked as a lawyer - and she didn't took bar exam- so she cannot work as a legal lawyer. She has only a degree in Commerce and Law. I really wonder why Law is given so much emphasis than Commerce when in fact she practiced the Comerce part of her degree more than Law.

For the Queen of Sweden, I think she would continue her linguistic skills - she was an interpreter when she met CG I think

Well, this would help in the running of the charity! And she could do the commercials in different languages! :P

Grand Duchess Denise wanted me to pass on a message to everybody. She was screaming at me about a career for Queen Sonja. I didn´t get all of it but I did hear the words "world´s oldest profession" in there somewhere... :P

Just because Mary didn't sit her bar exam when she finished her degree doesn't mean that she can never sit it. If she had not married Fred but had still moved to another country she would probably have had to do a year or two at a university in that country to bring her up to date with the law in that country but she could still practice law once she had done that and sat the particular country's bar exam.

I know, that she designs chothing for children, I&#39;m not sure, if she has her own stores, but it might very well be the true. I still think, she would be a New York jet-setter though - a jet-setter designing clothing for children

According to her CV, she has a degree in commerce and law, but after that she spend to years getting certificates in advertising and marketing.

All of her jobs, except the teaching position in Paris after she met Frederik, were in the area of advertising and marketing. At Belle Property she was manager of sales, and at Navision (Microsoft) she was a consultant in communication and marketing.

She has never practised law. I think that part was made up by journalists.

Very interesting choices...and a bit confusing because some answer it the way, that they are born in the families in which they are born (but then without Royal duties), and some answer it the way, that it would fit to their personality, character and skills... on the other hand they would never be, what they are, without being born and raised in their families.

I would love it, if all Royals would do these test, which school kids do at a certain age, to find an occupational field...and then they should publish the results

I didn&#39;t say she can never sit in, what I said is Mary never worked as a lawyer. And that is true.

That is pure speculation.

Now this is a fact.

Well I believe Ernst August would be a very respectable citizen... since he has owned a watch shop and gallery before maybe he would do that...

I think you have to separate those royals who weren't born royals from those who were. Basically because they already had careers/education from before they were married:

Henrik was a diplomat,
Silvia was an interpreter
Letizia was a journalist,
Sophie worked in PR.
Mary worked in sales...
Mathilde was a speech therapist
Maxima was in business administration, or something?
Alexandra was also in business...
Sonja is actually educated in clothing design with an eye to work in her father's clothing store, but also holds an academic degree in art and french...

It makes sense that they would continue with that had they not met their royal spouses, no?

Queen Elizabeth II: horse breeder
Prince Philip: admiral

I believe these are the most realistic options for them. :)

I just continue:
Diana Spencer was a kindergarten teacher
Queen Noor of Jordan was a flight attendance....
Queen Rania has bachelor in economic she could become an economic analyst
Lala Salma has bachelor in informatic engineering (if my memory serves me well) she could become an engineer in informatic industry
Imperatrice Farah Pahlevi was studying architecture before married shah, she could become an architect designer.

Oh this is fun!!!!

Ok,
Prince Charles- a Geography/English teacher with the requisite tweed jacket and leather patches. He'd be the kind of teacher who constantly goes off topic and lives in their own fantasy world.......

Queen Rania- A successful businesswoman of sorts, you can see that she's driven and ambitious.

Princess Madeline- Possibly a glamour model or maybe a really cheesy soaps actress

Princess Letizia- a journalist

Prince Felipe- An artist, I'm not sure why but he seems incredibly gentle......

Queen Sofia- Working with children in some form, either as a nanny or perhaps a nursery school teacher as she seems so warm and caring.

Prince Harry- Something pretty full-on like a stuntman, he seems as though he likes to take risks.
