A overview if you are unable to get the mod to work.

Before you get started, Your Sim must have a King or Queen Trait applied to your Sim. Go into Create-A-Sim and apply the trait. You can find the King/Queen traits here! Once your Sim has the trait you will see the Royal Family Pie menu below.

Here is the pie menu you should see when you click other Sims!

Royal Family Career

The second step is to apply the Career to your Sim. It’s found under the Freelancer Career menu.

To find this career Freelancer > Royal Family Trade > this will allow your Sim to select Royal duties to complete.

You can click the career image above to download the career. Sims will now perform Royal Duties/Gigs.

Greeting Royal Family Members
Greet Monarch

Uses the Bow animation. You can only greet the King or Queen and a King/Queen will not use this interaction as they do not bow to Monarchs. Both Sims will receive a sentiment about respecting or being impressed with each other if the interaction succeeds.

Greet Royal Family Member

Uses the air cheek kiss animation. All Sims in the Royal Family can use this interaction. The only time it can’t be used is when a Sim is King or Queen greeting their spouse.


Helpful Tip: If you do not want other Sims in your world to get the King or Queen trait. MCCC has a feature that allows you to blacklist traits. Go too MC > MC CAS > Blacklist Traits > Personality Traits and select King/Queen.

When a title is granted you will see a notification and there are buffs for both Sims.
These titles can be granted to Sims under the pie menu. The only titles that can not be granted are King and Queen.

Title Explanation – Use at your own discretion of course.

King and Queen – Ruler of the family. This trait is in CAS and only the King or Queen may anoint other titles.

Prince Consort and Queen Consort – The spouse of a King or Queen.

Crown Prince and Crown Princess – The heir to the throne or the spouse of the heir to the throne.

Prince and Princess – The son or daughter of a King, Queen, Crown Prince, Crown Princess and could be used for a grandchild of the monarch or daughter of a Prince or Princess. The title of Prince and Princess are often given to blood line Royal family members, but with exception can be gifted to non-blood line members by the King or Queen.

Princess Royal – A title given to the first and eldest daughter of the monarch. There can only be one Princess Royal at a time and the title remains with the holder for their entire duration of life.

Duke and Duchess – The spouse of a Prince or Princess could use this title.

Earl and Countess – A lesser title often given to a Prince who chooses not to use the title of Duke. The wife of an Earl is styled Countess. A countess may also be a Princess who is given a lesser title to allow her spouse to become an Earl.

Lady and Lord – These titles are often given to the children of a Duke, Duchess, Earl, Countess.

Baron and Baroness – This is a lesser title and the lowest peerage title to hold. A Baron’s spouse is titled a Baroness.

Royal Highness Dowager – This is a title given to the spouse of a deceased Royal Family member. Title has a special interaction – “Talk about Beloved Royal Spouse”.

Here is an example of an in-text notification once a title is granted

Sims will also gain a red tooltip text over their head and both Sims get a buff!

Titles may or may not disappear when a holiday occurs or you host an event, so you will have to add titles back but sometimes they return on their own.

Becoming King or Queen

Before you can become King or Queen, you must remove your current title. To do so, you would go on the computer and look under the Royal Communications Pie menu.

Then select the option of “Remove Current Title” and this will remove any current title before you go into CAS and apply the King or Queen trait. You will get the buff below about inhering the throne.

Remove Titles or Request no Titles for Kids

These options will show up for non King, Prince Consort, Queen and Queen Consort Sims. You will see an in-text notification appear when these interactions are used.

Remove Royal Title

Kings or Queens can now strip titles. If you lose a title, if you have an inheritance you will also lose the inheritance once the title is removed.

The Target Sim will also get a sad buff for 2 days.

Ask For Permission to Propose – For non King and Queen Sims. Will get a notification if they are allowed to propose. 

Ask to Become Non-Working Royal – Kings, Prince Consort, Queens and Queen Consort can not use this interaction. But any others can and a decision will be made.

Ask For Baby Name Approval – Ask the monarch for approval to name your baby. Appears for all but the Kings, Queens, Prince Consorts and Queen Consorts.

Ask to Switch Careers – Maybe our Sim wants to keep their title but become a Doctor! You can now ask for approval.

Leasing or Gifting Residences

The King or Queen can also gift other Royal sims a home or lease them a home.

Gift a Royal Residence means a Sim owns the home and does not have to pay rent.

When a Sim is leased a home, they need to pay the Crown Estate every 7 days. That interaction is found under Computer > Household.


This category is used for Sims to update other family members or the public on things happening in their life. There are two interactions that will always be under his category:

But there will be other options:
Announce Royal Baby – Must have Pregnant Buff
Announce Royal Engagement – Must have Engagement Buff
Announce Divorce From Spouse – Must have Divorce Buff

Crown Estate Funds
As long as your Sims have a Royal title, they will receive Crown Estate funds. But the King or Queen must have Joined the Royal Patronages via the computer to get their allowance.

Funds depend on the Royal Title
King or Queen = 500,000
Prince Consort or Queen Consort = 250,000
Crown Prince or Crown Princess = 100,000
Prince or Princess = 75,000
Duke and Duchess = 50,000
Earl and Countess = 25,000
Baron and Baroness = 10,000
Lady and Lord = 10,000
Royal Highness Dowager = 10,000

Funds are distributed weekly on Monday around 8 am but no later than 8:30.

Sims will get an in-text notification you can see below

And a buff you can see below

Once the Sims have this buff there’s a new interaction “Brag about Crown Estate Income”.

Helpful: If you’ve been playing with Royal families before today, you will need to cheat the game to add the Royal Allowance trait to your Sim as your Sims already have titles. This is a hidden trait and you will need MC Command Center to make sure your cheated are added. Then select your Sim using shift + control + enter and select add trait. Then add the “Royal Allowance” hidden trait.

Events – Click on the image to download.

Coronation, Garden Party, Tea Party and Royal Wedding.

Garden Party
Royal Duties
Royal Wedding
Tea Party

Computer Interactions

Sims who have a Patronage can use this computer interaction and it will leave you with a focused buff for 6 hours. This interaction is found under computer > career and under my work from home pie menu.

Aspirations – Click the image to download.

Royal Family Member
Royal Family Monarch

Text Messages
Sims will receive text messages from other Family Members.

This text message pops up when a Sim uses the “Promote Royal Family Agenda” interaction and has a cool down of 5 days.

After Sims host a Royal Patronage Meeting they will get this text message

Abdicate the Throne

Only available for King and Queen Sims.

This interaction only appears on the phone for Sims who are King or Queen. It’s important to make sure you have anointed another Sim a title so they can take over before going to this interaction because this interaction means you will lose your title and no longer have access to the Royal family pie menu.

You can be granted a title once you abdicate if the incoming Monarch decides to give you one OR you can straight up ask for a courtesy title can be Lady, Lord, or any other title you choose to give that is under the titles menu. When you have this buff about abdication, you will have 12 hours to ask for the courtesy title.

You will always be able to abdicate the throne and then you can Ask for a courtesy title. in an interaction found under friendly.

38 thoughts on “Royal Family Mod

  1. Tried to add a patronage to my king character, used the computer, used the career > patronages links and nothing happened. Is there a way of adding through mcc? Thanks, great mod btw 🙂

    1. Missing mod requirement or a conflict is the only answer. Troubleshoot further.

      1. No where in the Royal Family mod’s post is there a mention of a guard. How did you come up with a conclusion of someone being hired that is a guard? I assume you mean bodyguard?

  2. it doesn’t work for me, I have installed everything, I see traits and aspiration but the mod and the activities doesn’t appear

    1. That is unfortunate. As always, I recommend re-reading the entire post and making sure you have all of the mod requirements and you have applied everything correctly. One wrong step and the mod won’t work. If you need help, you can find my discord or report errors/ask questions form on the right sidebar by clicking the link to my excel document, since I do not offer mod assistance on WordPress.

      1. There is no script file. If one is needed it would always be included, not all mods requir script files. I use the XML Injecto which allows me to avoid scripts.

  3. I have a question regarding line of succession. Do you plan adding an automatic change in power after the death or abdication of the monarch sims, or is it intended to manually change traits?

    1. I would re-read the entire post. It tells you this information with the links included.

  4. I have downloaded everything and it’s all working perfectly, but the only thing that it’s not letting em download are the king/queen traits… any advice?

    1. I do not offer mod assistance over WordPress. Use the sidebard > Excel info document on how to contact me. It says in a pop-up and various pages not to ask for assistance in comments, please respect my decision on this.

  5. I have downloaded everything as indicated on the page. This mod used to work for me, but there is an issue since I downloaded High school. The interaction pie does not appear even when my sim as the king/queen trait.

    1. I do not offer mod assistance over WordPress. Use the sidebard > Excel info document on how to contact me. It says in a pop-up and various pages not to ask for assistance in comments, please respect my decision on this.

  6. Everything seems to work for me, except the career. I visited the university and talked to students, but it didn’t seem recognize it or mark it off in the career panel.

    1. Okay, as I’ve said on numerous spots on this blog I do not offer mod assistance in comments. You can visit my excel document and let me know what is happening via my report errors form or visit my Discord. Thank you.

  7. there is another king or queen (depending on my save) and they keep showing up to my house and NEVER LEAVE!! Is there anything you know I can do about this?? I’ve locked all doors and they still just hang around.

    1. Hello, Nothing in the mod will force another King or Queen to visit a lot and not leave. However, you can blacklist King/Queens and it’s mentioned above in the post how to do that. There should be an “Ask to leave” interaction that is built in the game.

      1. Interesting because again nothing in this mod will have another Si mcome over to your Sim’s home and not leave. This is likely connected to another mod that is conflicting with the Royal Family mod. Also in the post above: It mentions how to blacklist traits so no other Sims can become Kings and Queens. But you will need to read above for that information.

  8. Love this mod would you add any inheritable traits from when the royales have kids. Just asking not sure if its already a thing still new

  9. I do not own get together and outdoor retreat. Since I do not have those packs, will I have some features unavailable, or will the mod just not work at all?

    1. If a pack is listed as required, it’s required. Any use of the mod without required packs can cause problems. It means the game is using RESOURCES from those packs.

  10. Hi! The trader never shows up for my peasant family – the tax man comes, but I’m missing the trader feature. I have like a billion mods for medieval play – so i’m not sure if there’s a conflict. Any one have any ideas where to start?

    1. Hello, Please read the entire post from start to finish, I link you to the Royal Gigs career in the post. Thank you.

  11. hi i have problem with the mod “KiaraSims4Mods_basicTraitSitaution_CrownPrinceTitle(674151595573974893)”

    1. Hi,

      Please visit my Excel info document to left, then submit help to my forms. I do not offer mod assistance over WordPress and please make sure you have read the entire posts. You may get a BE for this mod if your Sim has a title and goes into a rabbithole. Thank you.
