For Sam Chatto, the grandson of the late Princess Margaret, dispensing an image to the world is quite a different story.
Thanks to the wonderful platform that is Instagram, Chatto, and his unconventional royal-life, is open for all to see.
Trawling through the 22-year-old's public profile, in which he travels the world and eats cereal straight from the box, we get an inside look into the decadent details of a young royals life.
Chatto, 24th in line for the British throne, has now used the social media platform to update his fans on the past several months.
"Where have I been?!" he begins. "I spent six weeks in the very north of Scotland immersed in pottery and ceramics, being taught by the most patient and passionate potter. Clay consumed my every waking hour and I am so excited to see what I can achieve this year!"
In another post, Chatto focused on his six weeks in India.
Four of those were dedicated to training to be a yoga teacher. "Although I have no plans of teaching anytime soon," he clarified in a comment, "it was an incredibly eye opening experience which I am so deeply grateful for."
Still, he wasn't alone in his training, the royals girlfriend Sophie Pipe was also along for the journey.
