When William and Kate become rulers, they could easily be in at least their sixties themselves. Of course what will define a great ruler is how their reign is interpreted, will they have wars to lead their country through which will prove the people's love for them? Will they prove themselves as leaders in the midst of disasters, diseases, terror?
Or will they have a peaceful reign where not much happens except going out showing a solidarity, but the Royal family will take even more of a backseat than they do already today?
Don't get me wrong, I know that the Royal family is extremely busy, I could never handle their schedules, but really, what decisions do they actually make which have a serious affect on our lives now?
The best way forward for this royal couple is to continue to be the best ambassadors for our country. They are loved everywhere as icons, inspirations and people.
Personally, I believe with the way the governments run our country today, that the royal couple would do well to take back some power to themselves and make sensible decisions as they represent us, the people. But if this were to happen, there could easily be a revolution and we could end up with no Royal family at all.
Yet if they continue forward the way they act now, I can see them putting no foot wrong.
Kate seems to be loved and has done very well adapting to the royal role, but who knows what position the world will be in when they take the throne, who knows what scandals the press will have unleashed which can turn them from adored to hated over night?
William, I am sure will be forever loved as Diana's son, in history it seems to be the first in line to the throne whom has acted the most scandalous, but where William and Harry are concerned, the trouble maker seems to have switched. Does that matter? No, its endeared Harry to us more.
If they were to take a moment to listen to me, my simple advice would be to remain compassionate, caring, understanding and fabulous.
When they finally get to the throne, we will probably be talking of their children or grand children, discussing how stylish they are and wondering what they will make as rulers.
Good luck to all of them.
