Does anyone know if there are many members of any reigning royal household who are atheists or agnostics?
I can imagine that would be a hard thing for any royal to admit, especially in the UK when the King or Queen has for centuries taken the role of supreme head of the Church of England and when historically the role of a monarch has been linked to the idea of the 'Divine Right of Kings'.

I can't imagine the likes of William and Harry being as religious as their grandparents but I do wonder if anyone became King or Queen of the United Kingdom (or any other country where religion has a certain political hold on the country) and they didn't believe in that religion or had never really considered it or taken an interest, would they still (out of duty) want to become head of the church?

Who has the right to be a "white" King/Queen I suppose is also a matter of culture and tradition. With no disrespect to Queen Paola, she is perhaps not the poster child for a devout catholic lifestyle, but that is OK, because I believe that ones religious believes are personal. It is not a competition.

Changing religion/faith upon marriage

It's not uncommon that a royal has to change his/her faith upon marriage, especially in countries which has a state church etc. I know that CP Mary of Denmark did, and those marrying the Greek princes has changed. In this regard I've had a discussion with a colleague. She claims that Queen Rania of Jordan was Christian before marrying. I don't think so, but my colleague and I are both head strong Anyone know? And if so, are there any trustworthy websites which I can provide as "proof"?

In this article about faith, from queen Rania's homepage, she mentions being a muslim from early age: On Faith series: Muslims Speak Out | Queen Rania

Thank you very much! It didn't occur to me to check the Queen's own homepage This should be proof enough in my discussion with my colleague

It was her mother-in-law (Princess Muna) who was Christian, not she.
