As a little girl I dreamed of being a princess just like virtually every other girl out there does at one point of another. But being interested in princesses still, more than a few years later, I set out one day to figure out what it would really be like as a princess
today. I didn’t get to don any designer clothing or ride in a limo, but I did dig around to see what I could find about modern princesses and the lives they really live.
If You Were a Princess…You’d Always Be in the Spotlight
Easy to understand, but hard to fully appreciate, all royals spend their entire lives in the spotlight. Even when their parents try to shield them from the glare of the cameras and the sharp tongues of gossip mongers, being a princess requires being in the spotlight all of the time. Your every move is recorded. Your every step is followed. Your every word is analyzed. Your every kiss is documented with 5,000 cameras – if you make the mistake to do such a thing in public. Being a royal is giving yourself over to your title in many regards and playing up to the cameras. It’s expected of you.
If You Were a Princess…You’d Never Be Alone
Being a princess
means being very important to not only your parents but to your country as well. Even if you’re not in line for the crown someday, you’re still a figurehead of that country in most regards and it’s highly unlikely you’re going to do anything without supervision. When you’re young you’ll have some form of a tutor or support staff to help you navigate life as a princess and learn to deal with the pressures. As you get older, you can expect to have a personal assistant and body guards around you all of the time. There are few if ever truly private moments in your life, although as you become an adult things might ease just a bit.
If You Were a Princess…You’d Be Impeccable
Today’s princesses look very much like princesses. The large dresses and crowns are saved for special occasions, obviously, but during the day you would look sharp in designer dresses and high style accessories. Jeans and a T-shirt are not viable options for you once you’re a princess
in the spotlight, so you can expect to spend tens of thousands of dollars on designer clothing, shoes and accessories. And you’ll never be caught outside in anything but the best. Even your work-out gear should be amazingly stylish and pulled together.
If You Were a Princess…You’d Be in Great Shape
As a princess today you’d be a lovely creature. It’s likely you’d be a commoner before catching the eye of a prince and becoming a princess, and if you’re anything like the other princesses out there, you can expect to be svelte, very in-shape, well-groomed and very pretty. Many of your other princess
friends will be former or current models and almost all will continue to work hard in some capacity or another as having your own job today is just something princesses tend to enjoy even though they certainly don’t need the money. Over all, you’d look good, you’d take great care of your body and you’d be sure to take care of your own interests as well.
