I think the record may be held by Roberto I, Duke of Parma (1848-1907). He had two wives, Princess Maria Pia of the Two Sicilies, and Infanta Maria Antonia of Portugal (who died in 1959).

He had 12 children by his first wife and 12 by his second (including Empress Zita of Austria), a total of 24.

Do the divorced wives of the British Royals have to return the Family Order and any seals, if they have received them, upon their divorce?

I have a question about royal brides, do the brides get to choose their own wedding dress such as the design, the designer, the fabric, their hair, their flowers? Or is someone else in charge of that?

In the UK, I believe they choose their own designer, fabric etc. Hence the crumpled disaster. The only remit here seems to be modesty and decorum. The flowers in the church reflect the flowers in any bouquet the bride may carry!:)

I have a question about royal's and their bodyguards. If this is mentioned anywhere else in the forums I do apologize. The questions is: Do ALL members of say the British royal family for instance have guards that protect them 24/7. Say for instance Peter and Zara Phillips or Prince and Princess Micheal of Kent's children Freddie and Ella and if they hold down full-time jobs what do the bodyguards do while they are at work? If anyone has an answer it would be appreciated.

Old Love?

Is it really true that Prince Richard, husband of Princess Benedikte of Denmark, once has been in love with the (then) Princess Beatrix of Holland?
I always thought they were just friends , but now I read in one of the threads that they have been a couple for a short time?
does anyone know?

As far as is known, I don't think Anne's children have bodyguards, so I wouldn't think the Kent children do either.:)

Well this generation:

QEII: 4 children
GD Henri: 5 children
Constantine: 5 kids (but 2 were born after he lost the throne so)
Simeon: 5 children, I'm wrong? Kubrat, Kyril, Konstantin, Kardam and Kalina

The rest of sovereigns have 2 (Norway and Denmark) or 3 (Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium, Monaco) children
Who was the royal who had 14 kids? it was way back on the time but I cannot remember:o

Wasn't that King George III and Queen Charlotte? They had either 14 or 15 kids.

It was suggested in several books about Queen B eatrix that Richard had his eyes set on her. They were not clear if it was because of love, or because of (family)ambitions. Then in the end a good friend of his (Claus von Amstberg) took the 'prize' away

thanks for the answer.
In fact I really cannot belive them both being a couple.
Let this be their personal secret ^^

Shrinking Royals

I was watching Monarchy the other night and noticed how petite the Queen Elizabeth II is. Older pics of her when she was a young adult royal she looked a lot taller is that my imagination. Even her walk seems to have changed, she has a stoop as before she was always upright when walking. I know as we get older we do to some degree shrink. Has anyone else notice the queens height?

I was watching the DVD of the BBC series on 'The Royal Family at Work' from a few years ago and saw a segment on her 2007 visit to Washington. When she came out of the 4WD vehicle and walked over to the then-President and First Lady I thought, 'Wow, these camera angles are strange! The Queen isn't that short? Is she?' Although I don't think she was ever above-average in height.....

No, I have not noticed Queen Elizabeth shrinking, but I assume she has over the years due to her age and the undoubtably heavy burden upon her shoulders (hence the stoop?)! A friend of mine met Charles and Camilla at the Sandringham Flower Show a couple of years ago and was amazed at how small they both were. It seems that TV and photography makes you look taller than you really are.
