Forget the fact that these people are living the life on the dime of their citizens, with no real power whatsoever.

What do they do around all day? Just ask England’s Prince Harry, or Sweden’s rebel prince Carl-Philip.

When they’re not attending ceremonies, maybe they’re living their fabulous playboy lifestyles.

Monarchs are a symbol — of the life we all wished we had. It’s the fantasy of having all the power at your disposal. Who wouldn’t want to have everyone serve your every whim.

And the best part is there is no downside to the life of an all-powerful ruler…


Oh. Right.
