should be depending on how big the royal grows if its a male it should be fine but if it ends up a big female then your gonna need a little bit bigger

I have a 3 foot adult male pastel royal in a 3 foot viv....he's grand in there but as said, if you end up with a large adventurous female then you will want a 4 foot one. My pastel uses every bit of his space as he is particulally adventurous....but he does come out a few times a week for a roam around and extra excersise.
If youre planning on a young/baby royal then youu might be better with a RUB until bigger to make sure he feeds reliably....or make sure you cram the 3 foot viv out with loads...and i mean loads of plant cover and hides to make it feel secure so it doesnt start refusing feeds due to the stress of a big open space
