Do you wish you were a member of The British Royal Family?
It must be great. They live these big lives. They are rich and famous. They have all the security in the world to protect them from any bad people and the media, and everything. And they always look so happy. They live in Palaces and Castles. They have all the servants and everything to take care of their every need. And there you are thinking whether you should buy Milk or eggs for tomorrow. They are Royalty. You name it. They got it. Do you wish you were a member of The British Royal Family?

The constant social demands of their position isn't one I envy. One can achieve wealth without also having to be constantly on display.

No. Neither did Diana like it. Too much ceremony and away from the actual people.

No. Their lives are luxurious, but in many ways, also very restricted. Definitely not for me.

I would dearly love to be married to Princess Anne, to be able to kiss her beautiful lips goodnight and good morning every day, and wake up gazing at her incredible beauty and know that she belonged to me, i would never let her out of my sight for a second for fear some other man might try to steal her away.

Having a life that includes financial stability and security is a plus. But, being the subject of lies, plots, harassment by paparazzi and gossip media, unwarranted public ridicule, should give one pause.
Private security is not fail safe and they don't protect the royals from being photographed or have stories made up and published about them---and having gullible people believe these lies are facts.
Not all royals live the lives that the official royals seem to live. Not all royals live in what one typically thinks of as palaces. For instance, Kensington Palace is a block of apartments. Buckingham Palace has apartments ,offices, official spaces for meetings. Some royals have luxurious tastes, while others live more simply, have jobs that are not connected to the monarchy.
Every occasion is not pomp and circumstance, fun and entertaining. Official working royals need to appear to be interested even when they are bored, and many meetings they take can be "sheer slog" as the late Diana, Princess of Wales once said.
Those royals who do have servants must worry about the workers' discretion--will these people be honorable and keep confidences, or will they talk to the gossip press and help make up stories? Many rumors may start out with a tiny bit of truth, but blossom into a full-blown lie--some "sources" may work in the royal offices or residences, hear a tiny bit of a story, tell a reporter, be paid for this transgression, and the reporter fills out a report with made-up filler.
The working royals are not free to do whatever they please. There are trade-offs. Perhaps you could just ask if people wished they were members of private, rich families who don't have the constraints of royal duties, expectations. Private families are free to do what they want to do without having media interest.

I agree that it looks like a pretty cushy number. On the debit side, though, they do seem to spend a lot of time deferring to other, more senior royals. I'm guessing that nobody bows as much as a prince. There are dull royal duties - meeting 400 pensioners or 400 boy scouts - but these duties only really come because the royals choose to accept them. Similarly, they could go where they wanted and dispense with servants and security (most European royal families have done so), but the British royals have chosen, and continue to choose, not to embrace a more modern model of a monarchy.

Stupid and inaccurate question.
