"Royals.... They're just like us !"

I'd like to start a thread entitled "Royals... They're just like us!", after the feature appearing in "US" people magazine called "Stars.... They're just like us !". I focus here on P.Caroline's family, because that's where I could contribute the most, but it could apply to Albert, and mostly to P. Stephanie, who, among the royals, is the closest thing to us, IMO. It could apply to any royal family, I am sure.

Topics could include, among others,
- they get their groceries, just like us,
- they take their kids to school, just like us,
- they take their baby to the pediatrician, just like us,
- they fall us their ski boards, just like us,
- they hang out with their friends outside school, just like us
- they enter clothing stores and try on things, just like us
- they study for their exams, just like us,
- they take exams, just like us,
- they work on their hobbies, just like us,
- they run out of gas, just like us,
- they take the subway, just like us,
- they play tourists, just like us,
- they eat on the beach, just like us,
- they suffer from the heat, just like us,
- they wait in line, just like us,
- they browse though people magazines, just like us,
- they carry their own luggage, just like us,
- they windowshop, just like us,
- they go into souvenir shops, just like us,
- they take the train, just like us,
- they powder their nose, just like us,

and others I can't remember at the moment

Here is an entry, entitled, "they run out of gas, just like us", Caroline in the seventies, from Hola

Glad you liked it, iloveroyals! Same goes for your clipping of Caroline studying with Junot!

~They go to the street market, just like us;

To share the talk and take some photos (sorry, it's little bit blurry photo)

or to shop with daughter

Sometimes, there's Daddy to help what to choose

Thank you so much for the pictures, Ianna and iloveroyals! I think these type of pics, where you can see them doing everyday things with family, are my favourite. And the picture of Alex shopping with her Daddy is just awwww....

And how funny, nor do our pediatricians come outside to greet us! Do you think he wanted his photo in the magazines?
