I don't like constantly being watched. I hate being photographed, so having people with cameras lurking about me would drive me crazy. I could never live with that dreadful protocol. I love my independence and privacy, so being royal would be a drag for me.

The TIARAS . Real royal tiaras are just much better designed and better looking than anyone you buy at stores (especially those really tacky, cheap looking ones they sell for Prom in the US). Of course, if I were really rich, I could just get a royal-esque tiara made for me, but I don't think you can really pull off a majestic tiara unless you're royalty.

3. long and frequent vacations

Losing some of my basic freedoms (right to privacy, right to vote, freedom of speech, freedon of religion, etc) by becoming royal certainly doesn't appeal to me. It'd be like entering into a gilded cage, but a cage none the less. The jewelry appeals to me though!

Yes,I would love to be a royal although I am aware that there are many restrictions but those restrictions are for my good,honour,dignity and pride in order to keep the good name of the family as royalty are higher than aristocracy and noble community.Besides that,I love the duties,clothes,everyting and anything that fits for a royal prince.

Although I think the lives of royals are very intriguing, the thought of actually being one is a no no in my opinion!!! I mean yes, there are some good points, but they are outweighed by the bad points.

I hate the thought of not being able to walk around freely without cameras in my face. I would hate not being able to quickly visit the shops looking a mess but not caring!
But the worst thing of all for me , the biggest chatterbox in the world, would be having to watch what I say and when I say it. With my friends I can say whatever I feel like- but I know that would be diffrent if I was a Royal.

To be a constant figure of humility and assurance for my countrymen and women and someone they are proud to have represent them.

goodbye freedom!
goodbye privacy!
And having a job that is not necessary, it is all formal and protocol, (of course you mean something to certain groups of people, but that is because you are a public figure.)
Attending all kinds of events and occasions is most part of the job, and it is just being there and saying something. It is just in the name (a princess), nothing more.

I would enjoy the historical aspect of being royal: having access to castles, fortresses, estates and old homes. I'd like to be able to read personal letters/journals of past monarchs and other figures of history.

I have to agree w everyone who said a loss of personal privacy and in a sense personal freedom. Fame scares me and to be instantly recognizable wherever I went would have me a nervous wreck. Plus, I wouldn't want to be consistently judged if I gained some weight, had a bad hair day, wore an outfit too revealing - or not revealing enough. Just too much pressure to be perfect.

I would never want to be a royal.

I love my freedom.
I love the fact that I can come and go as I please.
I cherish my privacy.
I love that I can speak my mind (freedom of speech) and decide which religion I want to follow.
I love that I can decide which political ideologies and party that I want to side with, without having someone tell me that I can't.

Another immense pressure that comes with being a royal: the loss of privacy for my friends and family. I wouldn't want to subject them to that type of harassment.
I love the fact that I have made my own money, with lots leftover, and to spend it as I wish.
I wouldn't want to be pressured into having kids and I wouldn't want to be seen as a "baby machine" to keep the monarchy going.

Basically, it isn't really all that "fun" nor is it a great life when one has to give up several of life's greatest gifts: freedom, soul, and peace.

I have the choice how I want to live my life! Royals cannot. In the end, that is a sad way to live in this day and age.
