I don't know of any European monarch who's atheist; however, we don't know what an outwardly religious person might really believe. If a monarch has to be a member of a particular church in order to be monarch, then the chances are that s/he will give the appearance of being a believer whether that's really the case or not.

you are right Elspeth, maybe my question should be redirected to "whose royals don't belong to any particular religion"

The other Arab Royals are all muslim and equally dedicated to their faith.
The Perlis Royal Family from Malaysia is also a descendant of Prophet Muhammad.

as the royal dynasty of Morocco. The King is in Morocco also the Amir al Mu'minin, the Commander of the Faithful or Leader of the Believers.

The British Royals are also descendants of the Prophet - I think through Edward 1's wife.

Interesting, eh?

Catholics (unlike Protestants) do venerate (not "adorate") saints and holy places, but only the Holy Trinity is the object of adoration.

But, IMHO, it's not a question of being "more open". :)

You'll never see "Protestant" Royals doing this kind of thing because the foundations of the faiths are different, at least in what it comes to the adoration of saints and holy places

The Prophet Mohammed, the founder of Islam. There are claims that Eleanor of Castile, the wife of Edward I, was descended from the Prophet, although I don't know how much verification there is for the claims.

Queen Rania has just performed Umrah this week, she has done so before on several occasions.

Thank you for the information about the Malaysian and Moroccan RF's. I wasn't aware of their background.

as far as I know the Spanish Royal Family goes to the Easter Mass every year in Palma but they are not part of the actual processions (I guess it's a security issue) but the siblings (Elena, Cristina and Felipe) did the Way of St James once together (in that pic you can see the shells that identify them as pilgrims)

I dont know wether they like saintly statues or not but I believe they are members of the so-called charismatic movement. Some say they are close to opus-dei too.

It can be true because Letizia had only civil marriage with her first husband. If she was catholic she would marry him in the church. But I don't understand it. Did she meet Felipe and believe in God so quickly? On the other side it would be weird

I read in a mag - I don't recall if it was Oggi or Gente - that Letizia married her first husband in a civil ceremony, because he was a radical communist or something like that...
