paintings of Astrid.

On the first she's in mourning for her father in law, king Albert I. On the second she's pictured with her daughter.

Both portraits are in posession of her daughter, grandduchess Josephine-Charlotte of Luxemburg.

A Question

Queen Astrid was born a Princess of Sweden, and therefore Lutheran.

The Belgian Saxe-Coburgs were (are) Roman Catholic.

I cannot recall seeing anything about the arrangements made when she became engaged to Crown Prince Leopold.

Did she convert to Catholicism? If so, this would be a relatively rare example within the European Royal Houses, certainly at such a high level. If she did not convert, did this cause any problems?

Does anyone know what happened?

thanks,
Warren

She converted, but only when she felt ready for it herself. I believe it was around 1933 or 1934.

Thanks Catherine. This means she was Lutheran when she married the Crown Prince. Did this marriage require special authorisation from the Vatican?

I am just curious because the situation of a Catholic Crown Prince marrying a Protestant Princess is fairly unusual, and I was wondering if there may have been some debate on this at the time (1926). I would imagine that some strict traditionalists would not have been happy.

I remember reading in a "Royalty Digest" magazine article (last year?) that some members of the Bourbon Parma family refused to attend the wedding of Princess Anne to King Michael of Romania in 1948 because he was Orthodox, and they weren't impressed that she was marrying a non-Roman Catholic (although her mother was Danish Princess Margrethe).
