Often, when people see the royals, the first thing that comes to their mind is, "I wish I were in their place!" And why shouldn’t they; after all, royals do enjoy a lot of benefits. Much more than what an ordinary person can dream of.
Now considering all this hype and noting the fact that a royal probably has access to everything he/she could possibly want, thinking of something such a person would crave would be as hard as finding a needle in a haystack, right?
Well actually, no! There are a few things that even royals wish they had. And the thing that tops the list for them is privacy!
Being public figures, royals are constantly under scrutiny and don't get to enjoy the little moments in life without any interference from the paparazzi. That's why when Vanessa Hudgens was asked if she would want to be a royal in real life, she quickly backed off.
A notion unlike any
Hudgens, who plays three roles (one being the Queen of Montenaro, the other the Princess of Belgravia, and lastly the Queen of Montenaro's look-alike cousin, Fiona, in Netflix's The Princess Switch 3: Romancing The Star), while talking with Glamour U.K. confessed she would never want to be a royal family member in real life. When asked the reason behind that notion, she explained that royals are always under the watch.
Whether they’re grabbing some breakfast from a renowned restaurant or spending quality time with family, or busy working, they're always under the public eye and have to behave in a certain way. Contrary to that, the actress loves enjoying life to the fullest; hence she would never fit in that mold.
Though Hudgens admires the part where royals give back to society and try their best to make it a better place, she admits she'll never be able to cope with the to-do's that come with the position. However, the 32-year-old did add that she tries to incorporate that habit in her life by joining hands with organizations that work for people’s benefit.
Recalling her childhood, the High School Musical star said she loved watching Disney's fairy tales. But unlike most people, her takeaway from those movies was way different. At an early age, she learned she didn't need a man to fulfill her dreams.
The most important thing that she acquired from those films was that life could be magical, and the problems that we face push us towards our goal. Perhaps someday we can sing and laugh about those issues, but till then, we need to have faith and be patient.
Summing it up!
Hudgens might not be a fan of royal life, but she can't disagree that it's one-of-a-kind. Like any other thing, it too has its ups and downs, but overall, it's a worth shot, isn't it?
