The role of royals is already disputed in the real world. People criticise the monarchs and protest against them. Just how bad will it get in the metaverse, where rules and laws and governments will probably change into a more modern system?
The role of royals is balancing on a pin. One bad move and they could get themselves off the throne. Around 2000 people joined Republic, an anti-royal group, to protest on May 6, the day of the King's coronation. The metaverse will mean that logistics don't matter and that you can protest from your home. Also, people say that royalty is a bit of an old-fashioned idea. In the metaverse, a new, modern, and promising land, do we want an old-fashioned idea?
On the other hand, royals would be a leading figure in the metaverse. Could we have one world where they existed and another where they didn't? Displays and processions could be done at such less cost than in the real world. Flybys could be done without much effort, and their exstensive budget is the main reason why people don't like the royals. The coronation could have cost £100 million. In the metaverse it would more like £10,000.
So, what do you think? Should we have royals in the metaverse? Is that too old-fashioned? Why? Why not?
