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.
