I can't speak for others, but I don't think people are shocked by his interest in Islam. I mean that Islam itself isn't the issue here. I think it is because royal families are usually united in their choice of religion (so this would be equally shocking if he decided to covert to Judaism, the Lutheran church, Greek Orthodox, Hinduism, etc) . Their spouses often convert to whatever faith the royals practice in order to become part of the family. Since all members of the royal family practice the same religion, it is a very rare thing to hear that one of the royals wanted to leave the official religion of his family. It is not so shocking that he wanted to marry a Mauritanian woman, but another woman at all (from anywhere). If I recall correctly, Princess Claire is the only fiancee he has had. I can't think of any other woman that he has stated that he wanted to marry.

I think it would be unusual to expect that a man of his age (or Philippe's) didn't have girlfriends before Claire. It's just more probable that his friends didn't snitch to the press.
