Is it fair that royals enjoy privileges such as heritage riches?

While it is true that they may have access to resources that the general public does not, it is important to remember that they also have a responsibility to their country and its people. In many cases, royals are required to fulfill specific duties in order to maintain their position.
While some may argue that royals should not enjoy certain privileges, it is important to remember that they often have a significant impact on their country and its people. For example, royals often participate in charitable work and help to raise awareness for important causes.
They also serve as an important symbol of their country and can help to promote tourism. Overall, while there are some valid criticisms of the privileges enjoyed by royals, it is important to remember that they often play a significant role in their country and its people.
