Daily Prompt – Next In Line

A second #RoyalBaby will soon be joining the Windsors in England. Given the choice, would you rather be heir to the throne, or the (probably) off-the-hook sibling?

I can’t say I really care too much about the whole Royal Baby excitement. Yeah, Kate’s pregnant and well, good for her, but I just don’t get people’s obsession over it. But the. Again, they’re also obsessed with Kim Kardashian and she’s famous for nothing.

If I we’re given a choice I don’t actually know what I would choose.

I’d like to be heir to the throne, because it would be a great opportunity to implement change into a country and not be swayed by secret dealings and handshakes and back-room agreements that Are solely for specific political gains. I’d use my powers to do positive things for the country, like pass laws for marriage equality, and invest money into renewable energy sources, and healthcare – the things that are important to people (and myself).

However, that’s not to say being the sibling wouldn’t have it’s perks either. I could be the ‘Harry’ and have a great time travelling to world and just doing my own thing. I could get involved in charities and do all types of community service… or I could stay within the confines of the Castle, and eat and sleep and play video games. Or I could go work or study overseas… knowing that money really isn’t an issue, I could go and do, literally anything that I truly wanted to do.

And that wouldn’t be such a bad thing either. It would take all the pressure off having to run a country, I guess.
