Don't worry I doubt you will ever be a prince.
Who knows where all theses rules come from. Like religion a monarchy is like an obsessive compulsive disorder where we must carry on traditions at all cost no matter how stupid some may appear. After all if we have been doing it for this long then there must be a reason, otherwise we would be idiots.
