If You Were a Royal Then....?
 
Hi all. Its an exciting open discussion for all. Lets get some exciting answers.
If you belonged to a royal family (suppose you were a Prince/Queen) then....what would you do? Lets start from me. If i would have been a royal i would have given an order of my own completely gold plated Rolls Royce Car.
What would you do if you were a Royal? :smile:

I would never have to clean again....

I would actually have to think of what i say, write and do. Especially not write journalists and correct their articles when i see something wrong in them.

Use the security agents as hitmen maybe:cool:?

I would never have to cook again. I would clip out menus of meals that I wanted and then have my person chef cook them.

I would have someone to help me shop.

I always wished that the United States had royalty like Europe does. I would love it if I had to go before the Congress and tell them what they should be doing. I could get away with it because they wouldn't dare cut me off or tell me to be quiet. They couldn't. I would put my two cents in regardless of whether they wanted it or not. Since they put their two cents in on things (another word for stating your opinion which may or may not be welcomed) that don't concern them, as a royal, I would have the right to do so.

If I get the chance to be a royal person so I always try to help others.

ThePrincessRoyal 01-08-2011 12:06 PM

I would be able to devote myself to more philanthropy and help others. I would also have to actually watch what I wear when I wear it... trainers or sneakers everywhere would not really cut it :)

I would hate to be royalty because of the public scrutiny and having to be careful what I say. Then, it is an expensive job and one is always on show and everything said and done is looked at and talked about. Awful!
However, there are government duties and there can be charity fundraising and I would get to dress up a lot and to do my own interior decorating!

I Would do my best for my People....and myself

I would do my level best to find the middle course for my Kingdom, while trying to remember when it's appropriate to "go extreme" in any given direction....

As head of state, my role would be to support and encourage the people of my country and to act as protector for them against wayward politicians! Provided I had at least two hours a day for myself, I would be happy for someone to organise my day for me. Unfortunately, I couldn't help myself being vocal about political and social issues so I'd be useless as the king of Great Britain!

I would have to put my two cents in when it came to signing legislation. Especially if I were the Queen of Florida. You would not believe some of the things that have come up (I really don't know what people are thinking).

Are we talking absolute or constitutional? A sociopathic megalomaniac would probably want to abolish the democratic legislative process. However, the consequence would be a Louis XVI situation - ie a rapid switch to 'unemployed' status. The top priority of a monarch is preservation of his family and the hereditary principle. This means compromising on political decision-making with the democratic system. To court popularity, a monarch would probably want to set up charitable funds in their name, promote charities and the public sector (military, hospitals, schools, universities, etc), hand out honours to "ordinary" representative individuals, support mass sporting activities, etc. Oh hang on, they already do that.

Positive: Life would be more easy and comfortable in financial terms, get the chance to travel a lot and meet a lot of kind of people. (Very positive to know more cultures and be more knowledge).
What i would love if i were a royal, is that i could go to poor countries and help those who live in misery, help families and children!
And your wishes will come true also, for ex for me: i would like to speak japanese (where i live, its hard to find), you will get a tutor right away.

Negative: Your life will be kind of a prison, you have to watch what you say and dress, but one thing that is absolutely bad is the lack of privacy. the press are serial killers, it would be uncomfortable and horrible!
Also if you are a crown prince(ss), you will have so much pressure to produce an heir (and depending on countries, you will have to produce a male heir for those that dont allow females to be heir apparent).
so you will live to please others.


so the negative wins for me, having privacy and rights is the most pleasent thing in the world. what is so good wearing expesive clothes that you cant get a life of your own? so i would never want to be a royal.

I would live in a Palace. Someone else would do my hair, clean my castle and manicure my nails. I would have a person cook who cooked my meals. People would have to listen to me whether they wanted to or not. I would put my two cents in (I would think at the very least a monarch or someone whose heir to the throne would have this right, some doesn't seem to have this right). The political system would be similar to that of the United States. However, I would still retain the right to quash legislation on any level which would require either a 2/3 majority of the state or the congress (depending on who it is) to over rule or over ride.
This would be the positive.

The negative would be people interfering in my life. Telling me I'm too this or too that (with me they would be commenting on my weight). You seldom hear the press comment on male royals weight. I would have no privacy (if I went out on a date everyone would know it). If I went to the hospital, everyone would know it. If I tripped and fell down, there would be a picture for all to see. I would be discussed on talk shows.

I dont know If I would like to be royal. I would love to live in a palace have servents and be able to have people adore me but the royals do have protocol and I dont know if I would want this life :
- attending events you don't want to be at trying to be happy and smile
- always being photographed
- people watch your every move
- trapped in a palace where you can't do much but work
- attend meetings
- you may have servants but your going to get annoyed that you won't be able to do things yourself anymore
- go to parties/ charity events wearing long gowns and heavy crowns and jewelry
- the use of royal etiquette( sit straight, wave a certain way, drink and eat a certain way...)
- look perfect to the people and the rest of the world as the embodiment of elegance and beauty.
- putting up with the people and the government.

If I were a royal, I would be a one peculiar royal, lol...
i'm too hyper to be one. Royals have to be down-to-earth and regal, royal females have to be feminine and i lack feminineness a lot.... i'm not fit to be one.

princessmichele 05-09-2011 06:58 PM

I'm a Princess, my Aunt was the reigning Queen of Waterman's Front until her passing. She passed her title to me I accepted as Princess.
I have 3 sons (princes) and a princess. I wear tiara's. I love to help others.

PrincessKaimi 05-09-2011 08:55 PM

Given that so many royals have to have real jobs, these days, I'd probably keep my own - unless of course I was Queen or the Heir Apparent. I feel very blessed and privileged to live as I do, enjoying most days and definitely trying to live with flair.

Of course, given that I live in a nation where, if one is a citizen, one does not have a title in any case, it's moot. I still think Hawaii should secede from the U.S. and join the Commonwealth...;)

Jaya 05-09-2011 10:32 PM

If I was a royal that was not deposed or ousted and still reigning.. I would have it made gatorade! I would have breakfast in bed. If the press ever hounded me I would use a helicopter to evade them.I would bring velvet back into fashion.

Mandarin_Empress 05-09-2011 11:07 PM

I would take up several charitable causes, including environmental stewardship/conservation/protection, endangered species protection, autism research, childhood disease research, prevention of human trafficking, science education for girls, etc. etc. I would also try to learn several new languages, including Spanish, French, and Italian. If I could actually take a political stance, I'd push for LGBTQ equality, and much higher taxation of the rich and corporations.

I despise parties, so I don't know how well I'd fare with having to attend gala after gala after gala and look absolutely immaculate for each one.

As for luxuries, I'd probably get a hybrid SUV or sedan with a custom purple paintjob, built-in GPS, and a rockin' speaker system. Clothing-wise, I'd opt for Burberry trenchcoats, Calvin Klein suits, and Rock & Republic jeans.
