BitLife is one of those games where you can truly be anything you want. From a singer to a football star, all the options are there: even BitLife royalty. If you want to rub shoulders with the upper echelons of society, live in lavish homes and have a near-endless supply of money, then the regal life could be for you.
Our BitLife royalty guide will break down everything you need to know about wearing the crown in this text-based mobile game. We'll run through what BitLife royalty actually is, as well as how to become a royal, and the perks you'll enjoy through doing so. If the royal life isn't for you, then our BitLife Mafia guide could be more fitting, making for a very different walk of life.
Of course, there's even more than just that to explore in BitLife. We've got all the details on the tricky BitLife train robbery, as well as slightly tamer endeavours, like how to become a BitLife actor. For other mobile games, check out our Genshin Impact tier list and AFK Arena tier list!
What Is BitLife royalty?
In BitLife, royalty is the upper echelon of virtual society. It functions similar to the game's Fame mechanics, as you'll have access to a lot more cash, as well as increased respect from the general public.
As you might expect, BitLife royalty lets you hold a range of crown-based titles, ranging from a duke to the king or queen of your country. You'll live in more expensive properties and will not have to work a normal job, as you'll have a fountain of money to burn. From there, your BitLife royalty path is up to you, whether you'll choose to be a benevolent ruler or secluded, rich, and a big spender.
How do I become BitLife royalty?
As you'll know, not just anybody can waltz into a life of royalty. Instead, it's generally a birthright, and BitLife sticks to this mantra. Your best chance of becoming a BitLife royal is being born into an existing royal family, but of course, that's no easy feat. It'll take an awful lot of lives before you get your first taste of royalty, as well as plenty of randomising your character before starting a life. It's made easier through BitLife God Mode, which lets you completely customise your character before starting a life. In God Mode, you can select Commoner or Royal, thus guaranteeing royal status. However, it does cost real-world money, so it won't be an option for everyone.
Equally, you can only become BitLife royalty if you're born in a country that actually has a royal family. For example, if your character is born in the USA, there's no chance of growing up in a regal castle. Only the following countries have royal families in BitLife, meaning you'll need to be born in one of these to attain royalty:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
- United Kingdom
However, there is an alternative way to sneak into BitLife royalty. It takes a lot of trial and error, but you can end up dating and marrying a royal, which will also make you royal. They are notoriously hard to find in the game's dating section. If you manage it, though, you'll eke your way into that country's royal family.
What are the perks Of BitLife royalty?
As you might expect, being a BitLife royal comes with plenty of benefits. First and foremost is the vast swathes of existing wealth you're born into. You'll have all the stately homes and luxurious vehicles you'll ever need, and more money than you'll know what to do with. If you fancy a £1 million bet at the casino every now and then, you can do just that without worrying about the crushing debt. Or, if you want to purchase a fleet of private jets and helicopters, that'll be like a drop in the ocean, too.
Equally, BitLife royalty comes with several gameplay attributes not present for commoners. You can socialise with celebrities of your choice, as well as voting on laws. Yes, as a royal you can pass or deny law proposals in the same way you can through the politician career trees.

If you're more of a malevolent ruler, though, there's plenty of room for that. The Public Disservice menu lets you choose from an array of misdeeds to commit. While it will reduce the respect your people give you, it's a way for BitLife royals to show off their power. If you want to take it one step further, you can order people to be executed through a range of horrific means. If you overuse these options, though, don't be surprised if your subjects revolt and eventually overthrow you. Then you'll lose all your power, with nought but fond memories to cling on to.
How do I abandon BitLife royalty?
As hinted at, the only way to abandon your royal duties is to be overthrown by your subjects. This is the equivalent of a mini-revolt, as you'll be chased out of your castle and lose your royal title. More often than not, you achieve this by making your subjects grossly unhappy with your reign.
To do this, you'll need to head down a bad moral path. That's best done by executing a lot of your subjects, and purposefully passing laws that you know will be unpopular. If you do this enough, the citizens will simply reach the end of their tether and depose you from your position.

Is there any way to guarantee BitLife royalty?
Landing a royal bloodline on BitLife is an incredibly hard thing to do, as it all depends on your luck when starting a new life. For players of the base game, there's no way to guarantee that you'll be born into royalty without spending money. It's a matter of constantly starting new lives and hoping you get lucky.
However, if you purchase the God Mode expansion, you can toggle your social status. It comes at a cost of $2.99 or £4.49, but if you want to guarantee the royal lifestyle before you start a new BitLife save, that's the only way to do it.
That's everything you need to know about BitLife royalty. We've run through what it is, the perks you get from being a royal, as well as how to end up sitting on the throne. The choice is now yours: will you be a kind, benevolent ruler or a crazed despot? The choice is yours!
