Princess Life vs. College Life: Who Has It Better?

When the news of Prince William’s engagement to long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton hit the Internet several weeks ago, hearts all over the world broke in two. Women’s dreams of becoming the newest member of the Royal Family were shattered in an instant. It’s undeniable that Kate’s life will soon be transformed; she’ll suddenly enjoy the glamorous and luxurious life of a Blue Blood– a way of life that is envied by any female that has ever watched a Disney princess movie.

Yet, there have to be some downsides. There must be some aspects of “normal” life that she will miss. Perhaps the Royal Life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Frankly, I adore being a college student. And, I’m not so sure I would be able to sacrifice the awesomeness of my current lifestyle to become the prim and proper Princess of Wales.

In order to sort it all out (and make myself feel a little better about my dream husband taking someone else as his wife), I thought I’d do a little comparing and contrasting. Who really has it better – Princess Kate or little ol’ me?
