34. You think being a royal is easy don't you?
Edited on Wed May-25-11 06:51 AM by lunatica
They might as well be in a golden prison cell. They not only can't make a move without paparazzi chasing them, sometimes to their death as happened to William's mother Diana, but their lives are filled with ritual, appearances, royal obligations and speeches. Do you think William's gilded life makes up for the loss of his mother? You probably do.

Do you really think they're lucky to be royals by birth? I don't. I can go to a movie or leave the house without makeup or doing my hair. No one is outside my door waiting to take photos and chase me around. Gee, how lucky can they be! No rag publication is ready to expose my secrets to exploit me for money.
