3 weddings! No wonder they went on 4-months honeymoon

These are some examples from Sweden.

Prince Oskar, younger brother of king Gustav V, son of king Oscar II and queen Sophia (of Nassau), fell in love with a lady-in-waiting, Ebba Munck af Fulkila. She was a noblewoman, but not even that was considered good enough for a prince. But they married, and Oskar lost his title.

The future king Gustav VI Adolf even had problems getting his permission to marry his future queen Louise Mountbatten. She wasn't considered a princess. But after some researches were done, they could get married at last.

Gustav Adolf's sons Sigvard and Carl Johan, who also are Bertil's brothers, are also examples of this of course.

Why did she have to get married with the orthodox ceremony too, since she became a catholic after all?

Another love story(not sure if mentioned) was of the last Tsar of Russia Nicholas and Alexandria. queen Victoria really wasn't overjoyed by her granddaughters choice.

cde and GrandDuchess,
Guys, thanks for the info and so sorry that the book isn't available in english.

Even though we don't know much about them, I would say Prince Max and Princess Angela of Liechtenstein since there were a lot of differences between them:

-age
-race
-her being a "commoner"
-her being American

I wish there was more out there about how they fell in love and how the relationship developed.

Because it was an agreement between Spain (aka franco's people and the pope) and Greece (aka Queen Frederika and the government) to get married on both rites as well as civily even if she was going to convert after all; their wedding was a power play more than anything

Its a shame her book isn't available in English. I think it would be very interesting to read. I really do like their love story. I think she was very dedicated to him. To stay with him for so long & not to be able to get married to him right away...now that is true love.
