What Career Would They Have?

If royals were not occupied by royal duties, what career do you think they would have?

This is hard to answer, because you don´t say, if they would be then Royals (like e.g. the Royals without a throne...the Greeks/ the Italians...) or if they would be lower/middle/upper class people...this would then influence their decision as well (lower class kids have less possibilities than upper class&#33

But to guess a few professions/careers for our Royals:
Cp Haakon: teacher (primary school or junior high school)
Cp Willem Alexander: Pilot (he already is one, but then he probably would do this full time)
Cp Charles: farmer (the same like Willem Alexander...then full time)
Cp Victoria: keeper in a zoo

Lena, I love your answers!

As for interpreting the question, it's up to you. However, I had originally meant what would the royals do if they were 'not' royal.

Thanks for answering Lena. :flower:

Interesting choices, Carlota...but who knows.
I doubt that cp Victoria would have had eating disorders without being crown princess, so she probably wouldn´t have gotten in touch with eating disorders.

And I think in the case of Mary and Mette-Marit their future would have depended on their future husbands (which then wouldn´t have been Frederik and Haakon- of course ). So my guess is that Mary would be a housewive and/or would work half time...and Mette Marit would have searched for comfort and a stable relationship with a good and working guy anyway...so maybe she would have married a norwegian guy, would be mother of a second child as well and would become later a child minder...I think this would fit to her.
Phew, this grammar form here drives me crazy

H.M. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark would probably be an artist.

princess Mathilde was a speech therapist before her marriage, so I suppose she would still be one if she hadn't married prince Philippe.

All good answers.I can see them all doing these things. Except that I see Juan Carlos being the head of a company involved with sailing. Maybe like in charge of one of those teams that do like the America´s Cup. He loves sailing.

"I doubt that cp Victoria would have had eating disorders without being crown princess,"

Unfortunately, probably true. Also for Madeleine. I would say fashion designer.

Hm, Madeleine a fashion designer? The design and fashion world isn´t the easiest to "gain ground"...so what does make you so sure, that she would be good at this? So far we haven´t seen much of her skills??
There I would rather see Margrethe of Denmark...she could be like Vivienne Westwood! Well, she almost is-the Royal version

I was thinking more in the line of handbags or shoes maybe. Not directly clothes. Yes, Daisy and Vivienne were switched at birth! :P

Prince Felipe said once that if were not a prince he would have been either a journalist or an astronomer. Obviously Letizia would be a journalist; she was passionate about her profession.

Infanta Cristina actually does work and has a paid job at the Caixa Foundation. I'm not exatly sure what she does, but it has to do with the arts.

Queen Sofia: wife of a rich and powerful man and philathoprist of the arts
Queen Margrathe: designer
Prince Charles: a professional watercolor painter
Prince Harry: professional polo player
Princess Mathilde: speech therapist
Princess Caroline: director of a foundation
Ernest of Hanover: gigolo
Princess Martha Louise: movie actress
Princess Madeline: model and all around party girl
Prince Frederick: business man

Just a gigolo?

Anyway, ML. Well, perhaps or an author. If only she´d be a fashion designer but I think
actress would be good.

Doesn't Marie-Chantal design clothing for children that she sells in her own stores?

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?

Pavlos as a hotel manager is funny.

Any ideas for the Kings and Queens of Norway and Sweden?
