Haven't heard of either parts of this one before. To my knowledge there was never any sort of relationship between Princess Anne and Prince Gustav and I have never read that E II R had any plans for a dynastic marriage for her daughter. The only rumours of dynastic plans were those involving Princess Marie Astrid of Luxembourg, who allegedly Queen Elizabeth thought would be an appropriate consort for the Prince of Wales.

Also I have never read that there is any sort of "frission" between the Queens of GB and Sweden.

That's quite shocking, considering the Luxembourg Royal Family is hardcore Catholic and according to British succession rules, any member of the British Royal Family who marries a Catholic loses succession rights to the throne [ie Prince Michael of Kent]. I can't imagine EII thinking that way...
Lollies!

A couple of pictures so you can put a name to a face.

Yes, quite. It would have involved Marie Astrid's conversion to Anglicanism.
But apparently EIIR thought she would be eminently suitable if that small stumbling block could be overcome. What price to become a Queen?

Yes, well. She should have had Parliament change that idiotic law then had the question come up instead of asking the devout woman change her denomination.

Princess Anne and Princess Diana never got along with each other.Anne was also very angry when Diana didn't name her godmother of Prince Harry.

Princess Di trying to resist paparazzi



Paparazzi really needs to cool down and give people their space.

Queen Elizabeth II did not have dynastic plans for Princess Anne and now King Carl Gustav of Sweden to marry. I remember reading that is was actually some of the high ranking staffmembers who though Princess Anne should marry Carl Gustav.

As for the Queens of GB and Sweden not getting along I've never heard anything about it. Infact, as far as I know they do not know each other very well at all.

I read somewhere (I think it was on this board) that Queen Elizabeth doesn't like Queen Beatrix

I remember hearing that they didn't get along. On a T.V story about Sophie, I heard that one day Edward brought Sophie with him to have dinner with the royal family. At the table Sophie kept trying to talk about her day or whatever, but Diana kept interupting with things like, Isn't the weather beautiful today and things like that. Diana did it so much that Sophie had stop trying to talk.

There was a news story about MT of Luxembourg publicly complaining about her mother-in-law not never liking her because she was not royal or aristocratic and had Cuban blood. I remember it because they compared her to the Windsors in the sense of airing their dirty laundry in public.

Stephanie and Caroline even at their father's funeral were not close.

Prince Philip told King Juan Carlos that he was an "idiot" in private over the Spanish royals protest of Charles and Diana spending part of their honeymoon at Gibralter, which was a bone of contention between the British and Spanish.

QEII gets along very well with Beatrix and Margrathe because they are closely related to her and are the only two other reigning queens like QEII in their own right.

The two branches of the Italian Royal Family the Savoys and Aostas do not get along and the story was the Duke made a funny comment or joke to the prince and the prince took it the wrong way and hit him. QAM happened to be standing there and caught him as he went backward.

K. JC was very angry and was heard muttering something that transalted to "No, not ever again".

"Hola" Magazine reported that the Duke of Aosta and Prince Victor Manuel of Savoy actually had a fight in Madrid on the dinner offered by the King and Queen after the wedding of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia.

Newspaper El Mundo reports: "En la cena, dada en la Zarzuela tras el enlace del Príncipe Felipe y Letizia Ortiz, Víctor Manuel de Saboya ha asestado un golpe en la cara de su primo, Amadeo de Aosta. Éste se ha tambaleado y ha sido soccorrido en seguida por un 'sheik' egipcio que le ha aplicado hielo sobre el moratón".

Translation: In the wedding celebrated at the Zarzuela Palace after the wedding of Prince Felipe and Letizia Ortiz, Victor Manuel of Savoy has slapped his cousin, Amadeo of Aosta. The latter has stagger and has been helped by an Egyptian sheik, who applied ice on the bruise.

Anybody has more information about this fight?

There is an entire thread about it in the Spanish forum with articles and comments.

The full story is that the Grand Duchess held a news conference because she was so fed up with Josephine-Charlotte's treatment of her. Josephine-Charlotte, according to Maria-Teresa, referred to her in private as the "dirty Cuban." If you look in older threads in the Luxmbourg forum, you can hear the real story and read the articles about it.

That is not true. That is your perception of the day. There are several pictures of Caroline comforting Stephanie. Even if they do not get along, on the day of their father's funeral they put aside their differences, even for one day, and supported each other and Albert.

Do you have an article that supports this story? Prince Philip has also referred to many other people, royal and otherwise, by all sorts of names. That does not mean that he is fighting with them.

I have never heard of a close relationship between Queen Elizabeth and Queen Beatrix. I have heard that Queen Margrethe does pay an occasional private visit to Queen Elizabeth when she is in London shopping but I have not heard that they have a friendship. I think their relationship, which is different from a friendship, is based on their mutual roles, but I do not believe that Queen Elizabeth is good friends with either of these women.

The exact circumstances of this situation which took place at the pre-wedding dinner of Felipe and Letizia the day before their wedding can be found in a thread in the Spanish forum.

Wow Genevieve...you must be a real authority to tell me something is just my perception.

1. There is no love lost between anyone in the Grimaldi family and Stephanie. That is true, no voice for disagreement. Caroline, no angel herself when she was much younger has always felt Stephanie has not behaved in the way a royal princess should.

All U.S. media covering the funeral reported that even though they shared grief over their father, there is still no love lost between them.

As for the relationship between the three queens, I am not talking about personal visits or cups of tea, I am talking about the common bond they share for right now of being closely blood related and being the only queens right now on thrones who have inherited them outright.

Please do not feel the need to make superior driven comments against what I have written.

I tell plain facts...not perceptions as you call them.

I did not say P and JC were fighting...I said there was tension at the time due to the Gibralter issue going on when Diana and Charles married.

By the way, for anyone who asks, I get my information not from gossip magazines or website, but from thoroughly researched news, archives, books and from aristocracy in Europe who are related to me.

We are all here to profess our thoughts, not to so rudely correct others. Let's remember that Genevieve.

2. As for the argument and fight between Victor Emmanuel and Duke of Aosta, plain and simple no big deal, the Duke made a joke to his cousin and it was misinterpreted by the prince who then hit him, the Duke then fell back into Q. Anne Marie who happened to be behind him.....plain and simple.
