We all wish we could win the lottery, have our 15 minutes of fame, be an A-lister, and, yes, be told that we have Royal blood. Although we do not often think about the real consequences of these desires being fulfilled, we all have fantasies about getting money, influence, and power, which will magically solve all our problems. No, the Royals don’t worry about their bank balance, and no, the queen doesn’t ever have to use a poop-scoop to pick up after her beloved corgis; who wants to deal with these mundane tasks anyway? Is it any wonder that we wish to be a Royal when we have dish-pan hands?
