Person, Place, & Topics
 
Ok Ladies & Gents, here's a multi-part question. Feel free to answer part or all.

If you could spend an hour with any royal,
1. Who would it be with,
2. What would you do, and
3. What 4 things would you like to discuss?

:)

Alexandria 01-06-2005 09:56 PM

Fun idea Freedom! This feature is in one of the national papers I read each weekend.

Who: Queen Sofia of Spain
What we would do: An afternoon of tea and fruit and desserts
Four things we would discuss:
1) How she adapted to the role of Queen of Spain under such trepidicious circumstances
2) How she felt about her brother's exile from Greece and how she would feel if Greek were to re-instate its monarchy with her brother as its King
3) What are the challenges ahead for Letizia and other crown princesses in today's modern monarchy
4) When she and the other queens get together at various occasions, do they talk "shop" or do they dish and gossip like any other group of women or talk about their children and grandchildren

Dennism 01-06-2005 10:22 PM

Yes, fun idea:

1. Crown Princess Victoria(Really, Dennis?)

2. Afternoon picnic in an open field. Just me, her and nature.

3. A) Her goals as Queen. Her view of the future of Sweden and what role she sees the monarchy playing in it.

B) Victoria as a non-royal. What she would have done and been had she not been a royal. I know she has said before but I´d rather hear it straight from the horse´s mouth.

C) Anything about gardening and animals. Something about which she would talk about in a pleasant way. Make her feel good.

D) Funny stories about her siblings and her parents. Everybody likes to tell those. Make both of us feel good and we could laugh together.

I suppose I could be more serious. But I wanted to find a balance.

Australian 01-07-2005 08:06 AM

1. Who would it be with,

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark


2. What would you do, and

have an aussie barbeque

3. What 4 things would you like to discuss?

- her transformation from Aussie commoner to future Queen of Denmark
- what she misses about Australia
- the possibility of introducing me to single royals :)
- what is it like to live in a castle

Freedom 01-08-2005 12:05 PM

If I could spend an hour with any royal, I guess I’d like to spend it with Prince Albert of Monaco.

Together we would go to a refugee camp where we would chat with people, assess the situation, and create a game plan on how we could help the people in the camp.

The four topics I’d like to discuss with him are:
  1. Does he genuinely feel empowered to be able to affect people’s lives in a positive way?
  2. If he could choose, would he be a royal?
  3. What does he fear about the future of Monaco?
  4. Laslty, I'd ask what would he like to talk about?

selrahc4 01-08-2005 04:06 PM

PERSON: Queen Elizabeth II
ACTIVITY: Looking through The Queen's private family photo albums
TOPICS:Things I would ask other than the conversation which would arise naturally about the photos
1) What words are engraved inside your wedding ring
2) What were your 4 pregnancies and deliveries like
3) What person, place, or thing has frightened you the most in your life
4) From whom do you most like receiving letters, and why



Nichola 01-08-2005 04:33 PM

Person: Queen Victoria of Great Britain

Activity: a stroll in the gardens of Buckingham Palace

Discuss: Did you marry John Brown?

suturegeisha 01-08-2005 10:12 PM

What a neat thread!

Who: Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg

Where: Some really relaxed setting, with little to no other people around. I know- Iceland! [I like Iceland. No, really. Stop laughing]

Four things to discuss:
1] Are you really comfortable in your role as a future sovereign? Is there anything about this prospect that unnerves you?
2] Where do you think Luxembourg as a country is headed- the economy, the government, etc.? Is there anything that you would push to change when you become the Grand Duke?
3] What do you do for fun? What kind of music do you listen to, what books do you read, how do you relax?
4] Can I get your phone number? ;-] Oh, and what did you see in that awful Haraldsen girl?!?!?!

Heh.
Lollies!

Riding at Balmoral.
We are alone. Silence. Balmoral Castle is far, on the background.


I would like to ask (but I would never ask):
1. If you were a commoner.....
2. Do you care about people's opinion and feelings towards you and your family?
3. Are you happy with your marriage and do you know the truth about Philip's rumored affairs and what are your feelings and so on?
4. What do you need more to be happy? What's happiness?

Kathryn Mayer 09-06-2005 10:58 PM

If I could meet my 14th Great Grandfather, Sir Henry Clifford, 10th Lord of Clifford, I'd ask him if he thought his life would one day merit a poem by William Wordsworth. I'd ask him if he knew of his ancestor, King 'Bluetooth', (the one who introduced Christianity). I'd ask him, "What is it like to one day wake up and be told of your royal seat?" Lastly, I'd ask him if he ever thought a descendant of his would marry into the same line that also married into the family of the world's most photographed woman. Need I say more?

And he'd say, "What's a photograph?"

Vanesa 03-29-2007 09:29 PM

Hummmm. I never would choice another nationality than the one I already have! Sadly, my country is a Republic and I wouldn't be a Queen, even for a single day! :lol: But if I should be a Queen, every country would be good for me nowadays, for the world is turning so bad , and there is so much to do...

I love tiaras, beatiful dresses, nice glittering parties, champagne and all, but this is not the part that I like the most in a Monarchy.

Vanesa.

Monaco's Princely Family. 100% of the way....:monacoflag:
One of two options:
1. Eldest, and only legitimate daughter of Prince Albert (Heiress Presumptive of Monaco)
2. wife of Andrea Casiraghi (which, technically, wouldn't give me a royal/princely title, but perhaps Caroline and Albert would grant it with the marriage????)

MRSJ 12-18-2010 11:20 PM

I would either be CP Victoria or Kate Middleton because being Kate right now must be awesome, overwhelming and a bit surreal so seems like a good time :) and if it can only be 1 day I'd pick her wedding day, just to see what it would feel like and for Victoria any day I got to wear a gala gown!
