I wonder what the british people thought of this.Of course there are a lot of catholics in Britian and Im sure there offended by the no catholics allowed policy.They really should change the law,but I know it's not easy.

It's not just "not easy" - it would be near impossible.

The Crown has two facets: Anglicanism and the State.

To try to disentangle them would mean re-writing the constitution.

Sometime earlier this year, the Archbishop explained that Charlene did NOT have to convert to wed Albert. I can't remember what he said about how the children would be raised.

Albert's children would be raised Catholic. Not a stipulation from Monsignor Barsi or the Pope, but Monaco's Constitution.

One could say it's the same situation with Britain and Monaco.
The constitution wins every time...

Monaco and Britain are different. In Monaco as long as the children are brought up Catholic the Prince's wife can be whatever religion she likes, the same as in Holland for example where Princess Maxima has remained a Catholic but the children have to be raised as Protestants. In Britain a member of the Royal Family cannot succeed to the throne with a Catholic spouse under any circumstances.

Well, they divorced and both remarried, so I don't think they are very practising Catholics.

Remember, Anglicans or Episcopalians here, are, really, Catholic, just not Roman Catholic. The same basic services and Liturgy.

However, under the Act of Settlement, anyone married to a Roman Catholic automatically loses the place in the line of succession so there is a difference.


That will change, when the Succession to the Crown Act is finally passed into law.


The British monarch obviously can't be Roman Catholic and that makes perfect sense as well,

? Depending on the local church that you attend, you can be divorced and a practicing Catholic. Most divorced/remarried Catholics that I know fall into the "you can attend church, pray, donate and participate in the social life of the Church. You may also take sacraments if you are not sexually active in your marriage." I live in the US Midwest and find this is very common.
There is also the more-rare Catholic who has been told by a priest to follow a "don't ask, don't tell policy" and to go ahead and take sacrament in a local church that does not know of the prior divorce.
Off topic, but I thought I'd share what I'd learned from my experience of the RC Church.
