Royal Review: Bright Young Royals by Jerramy Fine

Searching for your prince or princess?

Not sure where to begin?

You could buy a ticket to whatever country the object of your royal affection is in and hope for the best, but there is no guarantee you'll be successful. Then there are the strange looks from your family to contend with.

No, what you need is a well thought out plan.

You could invest in a copy of the Almanach de Gotha, it's expensive and awkward to tote around. Not to mention having to wade through over 1000 pages to locate the royals that are actually still available. Too time consuming.

Or you could buy a copy of Debrett's Peerage and Baronetage so that you don't step on any regal toes. But why bother?

What you need is a concise guide. A primer that tells you which royals are available and what they like to do in their spare time.

Thankfully that publication now exists. Bright Young Royals: Your Guide to the Next Generation of Blue Bloods by Jerramy Fine is your indispensable reference for finding your royal and keeping them. This book will tell you everything you need to know about who they are, where they live and how to win their hearts.

This book lists the available candidates from the various European royal houses along with short biographies, which include photographs to compare your options. You will learn where these royals live, their educational background, and what charities they support so that you can make an informed decision on whether they would make your family proud. Or switch gears if necessary.

So, armed with the ultimate guide, what do you do next?

Once you've made it past the security detail for the object of your royal affection, you're all set to win their heart using the helpful tips in Jerramy's book. What they like to eat, their birthdate, the names of their siblings, how much money they have and where they are in the royal pecking order. Sure to impress even the most minor of available royals.

Of course there will be roadblocks along the way. It could take years before you get a proposal. Just ask Kate Middleton and Charlene Wittstock. That's why Jerramy has included a chapter on modern day Cinderella success stories to keep you motivated and inspired. Think being a commoner, overly intelligent, a single mother, or a divorcee  will stand in your way of finding true royal love? Rest assured it won't. 

But once you've married your royal it isn't all luxury and glamour. There's real work to do, such as using your powers for good and raising a future generation of royals to be responsible individuals. An entire generation of upcoming attractive young royals to write a sequel for. No doubt it will be just as enjoyable as this version is now.

Sometimes I think your dream princess or prince is already out there and waiting for you. They may not be titled princesses or princes but I think if you find them and marry them you can have your own royal family. You can do what the real European royal houses do. You and your family can dedicate your lives to service to you community and country. You can work hard for charities, organizations, setup foundations and just make a difference in this world. I think it's even possible to past these traditions and values down to your children, grandchildren and even great-grandchildren.

So I think if you just happen to find your real Princess or Prince, then that's great but ,if not, it may be possible for you to find a normal princess or prince and just create your own royal family.

What you think, Marilyn? lol.

I completely agree with you. You don't need to marry royalty to be happy.

However the golden page in the history books certainly is enticing don't you think? ;)

Lol, I guess you have a point, Marilyn. I think Diana once mentioned that she had seen many books about the royal family but she never thought she would end up in them.

I do wonder how Catherine feel now? It's one thing to date a royal for nearly a decade but now she's HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, future Princess of Wales and Queen. To me, Marilyn it still feels like a dream that William & Catherine are now married. I've listened to your show for a longtime and I remember your segment called "Engagement Watch" and now you no longer have to say that. We no longer have to speculate about it because it's done. It's just amazing.

Marilyn Braun said...

Right! Now I have 'Royal Baby Watch' instead. Depending on how the tide turns, I may have 'Royal Divorce Watch' too. ;)

I would think that it's incredibly surreal for Catherine. To know you will have a page in the history books. To be surrounded by such oppulence while having to keep level headed at the same time. I wouldn't blame her one bit if it went to her head for a while.

No doubt it's a challenge but by the looks of it, at least when she's in public, she's handling the attention well without getting caught up in it. The royal family is probably breathing a sigh of relief at that!
