Okay. Let´s make this a funny thread. If Royals wrote books, what would the titles be? I think a few royals could contribute to the "Dummies" series. But first of all, I think there should be a book called:

"The Finances of a Royal Court - A Guide for Dummies"


Poor Marius could write when he is older:

"How to get over the fact that your younger sister is more popular than you are"


So what other books do you think various royals could write?

Great idea for a thread Dennis :flower: , here are my suggestions for books by royals:

Some of these are very funny. :lol:

Dennism 07-05-2004 09:45 PM

Of course, Maxima could write "Wear a stylish and colorful wardrobe all of the time!"

In fact, Maxima and Märtha Louise could co-author "Finding your personal style: Ways to find a niche wardrobe for yourself."

HardCorrVictoria 07-06-2004 12:29 AM

Sarah Ferguson: "The importance of maintaining proper foot care in preparation for one's summer holiday"

Princess Madeleine: "How to save precious dollars on your summer vacation by scrimping on unnecessary products such as sunscreen"

Crown Princess Victoria: "How to maintain your dignity while dating a man with a preference to wearing trucker hats"

:P Very good. I like that one.

Lady Jean 07-06-2004 10:48 AM

:lol: Great job Kirstengrafin

kirstengrafin 07-06-2004 10:17 PM

Here's a few more that I thought up during my lunch break: :flower:

Crown Princess Maxima
"Color Me Orange -How to Stylishly Incorporate Your Country's Color Into Every Aspect of Your Wardrobe"
Whether you're stuck wearing orange, magenta, or worse yet, crazy mixed-up patterns for traditional events, let Maxima's sure-fire advice transform your look from mascot to majestic!



Ernst August von Hannover
"The Importance of Being Ernst - My Life Thus Far"
A frank, honest and introspective account of Ernst August's life in the spotlight. The Prince candidly recounts his "Gee Whiz" incident at the Turkish Pavilion in 2000, protests his reputation as "The Punching Prince" and gamely speculates why he alone can look stylish in a brown jacket and blue jeans. A must-read for every tabloid devotee!



Princess Madeleine of Sweden
Taming Your Inner Brat - How to End Self-Defeating Behaviors That Result From Royal Privilege"
In this royal "It Girl" guide, Princess Madeleine dispenses youthful wisdom regarding the impropriety of plunging necklines, immodest swimming floss and other less than nobel....er, noble modes of dress and behavior. A best-seller in Monaco!

"How to become a Gay Icon" by Prince Carl Philip

The way of selling the books to danes like myself, would be:

Do you always wonder, what that guy is trying to say? Do you sometimes get bewildered, when the eloquent prince choose to enlighten us: are there really such a great resemblance between Danish and French? This is a once-of-a-lifetime opportunity to learn how to understand The prince consort.

What a light-hearted feel good post! Thanks for all the laughs.. :flower:

Dennism 07-07-2004 05:11 PM

These are brilliant. I loved the Henrik one. Good work, Kirsten. It looks like Stephanie is trying again and again indeed!
