Here’s a picture I’m sure you are pretty familiar with. What a lucky little boy. Born with a silver spoon in his mouth and all that sort of stuff … “if only my kids could have been born so lucky, eh”?
Well would you kids actually have been that lucky?
I don’t know.
Here’s the thing. On his own, little George owns pretty much nothing and has no real income. Someday, of course, he might become King of England, a job currently held by his great grandmother .. she gets a fixed income of 36 million pounds a year both for here own use, to pay all her staff and to maintain all the Royal residences she uses.
But George has to wait for the present queen to be finished with being queen, and then Gorge’s grandfather (yeah the one who yearns to become a tampon, with the jug ears), has to have his shot, and then Georgie’s dad William can finally earn a salary, for as long as he chooses to be king..
George doesn’t really have much of a shot of any actual income for a whole lot of years to come.
Right now the family actually earns an honest (modest) income because George’s dad is a serving officer in the Royal Air Force … an honorable profession to be sure and one that will pay a modest retirement if dad keeps on serving. Something actually independent of the “king” business and handouts from the public trough.
I Mean Money Is Money, But Don’t Most People Want To Earn _Something_ On Their Own?
But retirement from the military isn’t in the cards for William it seems. I just recent read that Prince William will be trading his military duties for more princely Royal duties starting in a month or so.
Well no surprise, really, but I went to see how many years William had served and what rank he had attained, etc. and guess what I found?
The prince is leaving his RAF post in Anglesey because his unit has been outsourced!
Yep, the Royal Air Force figures it will be cheaper and a better deal for the people of Britain to convert the military air/sea rescue service to a civilian contractor. So sorry, William, here’s you pink slip.
Mom To The Rescue:
Well this is all very tongue in cheek in one way, because am sure there will be some sort of allowance for Prince William and thus Prince George. I really don’t know how it must feel to be in your 30’s or 40’s or even 50’s or 60”s (yeah, you, Prince Charles) and still be living off your mom’s allowance, but hey, I guess any port in a storm, eh?
But what would happen if something went awry in politics and the British people decided they were not going to pay for a whole palace or two of Royals, all sitting around waiting to be come King … maybe some day.
No Matter Your Future Prospects, I Recommend You Build Something For Yourself
Prince William has on very important skill, obviously, he’s as qualified helicopter rescue pilot. (Of course he can probably only go to work for the outsourcing contractor at way less than when he was a serving officer). That’s how these outsource deal all work, the contractor breezes in, takes all the expensively trained active service officers, puts them on the street and then offers to hire them back at half pay.
Saves the taxpayer money, though.
But if half pay for a remote and often dangerous assignment isn’t to Prince William’s liking?
Fear not, his wife Catherine has her own “non-Royal family business that instead of begging for their bread off the back of the UK tax payer, actually goes out and earns real money.
You see little Prince George’s “other” grandparents ..the ones who are actually useful and functioning human beings, operate a little web venture which sells party favors and such.
But Is ‘Net Income Real?
“How cute” many of you are saying. “but income from the Internet isn’t real income,. is it”?
Well it’s a privately held company so they don’t have to post formal corporate accounting figures, but informed sources figure the business at being worth 35 or so million pounds … nearly equal to Queen Elizabeth’s royal Handout, but in the case of the Middleton’s, actually earned in a real business.
So the next time you think that there’s no ‘real money” online, or think that there is something a little “sleazy” about earning online income, belter think of dear little Prince George.
If his daddy’s’ gratuitous handouts from the public aren’t going to support the family, mom cam always contribute a little real-world Internet income to keep house and home together.
What doe this have to do with living in the Philippines you may ask?
Plenty, says I.
Don’t relay on getting a retirement income “someday”, because “someday” may never come.
Enable or empower yourself today, while things are good, so you won’t have to be a man I n his 60’s living off his mom’s government handout checks, waiting for the day he might possibly have an actual job for a few years.
