Does anyone know when it happened?
Harald already knew Sonja Haraldsen so it must have been after 1959...

Just putting in my two cents

I don't know if someone already found this, but I'll cite it anyways. I did my own sleuthing and entered the name Elisabeth Fabius into the Yahoo search engine. A couple sites came up, but none that were special. But as I was scrolling down, I noticed a site that underneath it had Elisabeth Fabius's name in bold. So I checked it and to make a loong story short, if anyone here can somehow figure out if she married a Don Lorenzo Rocco di
Torrepdula in 1999, then i may have found her parents, and they aren't related to the military.

I read that Queen Frederika (Sofia's mother) was the one who wanted Sofia and Harald to marry....

Then you must not have heard what the Spanish King Juan Carlos told his son 'Zarzuela is the place to work, not the place to display fashion' .

I don't think he was her partner of choice, she was a lowly "serene" highness, and he was heir apparent, but she was much more intelligent than him, I don't think she was given a choice if to marry him, quite frankly, she had a much happier life with George V than she could have ever had with Albert!

It's interesting you mention it, because that's exactly how I feel. All the CPrinces had previous relationships before, but nothing compares to the relationship they have with their present wives. Except for Felipe, it seems to me, he was twice forced to give up great loves, with long standing relationships, I can't beleive you can just wipe it out and start anew, Letizia, seems to me a good choice, and they seem happy, expecting their second etc. but I wonder...

The length of their relationship is problematic to me given the length of his other two serious relationships. Tad too fast, in my opinion. I doubted they even dated for a year!

The length of the period before the engagement doesn't have to be the most vital thing here. Letizia was going out with her future husband for 8-10 (?) years and then got divorced one year after the wedding. Infanta Cristina and her hubby were dating each other as long (or even less) as F&L and just look how happy they are!

There's also the rumors about her having had a long term relationship lasting years with an Italian man.
I find it totally weird that there's no info on Maxima's former boyfriends. As if they're guarding the holy grail secret, come on!
I mean, it is unthinkable that a good looking gal like her didn't date anyone befor e age 25, when she moved to NY..

This is very very nasty for Eva. She was working like a model to pay her studies, it does not mean that her ONLY interest was the fashion..... Many students work, but this does not mean that these "summer" jobs are their ONLY choice...
Letizia used to work in a pizza restaurant as a waitress when she was studying in South America, (I think in Mexico)
Why serving pizzas is better that working in the catwalk???
And Letizia's granfather was taxi driver, why is better
There is no shame to any job.......

Letizia

Princess Letizia worked in a newspaper named "siglo XXI" (century XXI) in Guadalajara, Mexico. I belive that she had a boyfriend in this city. I dont remember his name, but I belive that he was a married man. Here, in Mexico, too, after we knowing the royal commitment, people criticized Letizia for posing, supposedly, in topless, for a front page of a disc of a group called Maná, which, in the particular thing, I do not like this group.
I have understood, also, that she, which was not still known, asked for work in Aztec television, and they did not give it to her.

She had been an underwear model since age of 15. The public education in Norway is free, thus she didn't model to pay for her studies. She had been a professional model for a few years without studies. Letizia, a full time college student, worked at a pizza restauant part time for a year in order to pay for her summer internship in Colombia, the two situations can't be compared.
Yes there is no shame to any job, any profession in a modern society, but so far none of the former underwear models made it to be a future Queen. QMII also rejected Frederick's ex Katja about the same way.

Here's the link on Spanish about the supposedly topless paint that Letizia did (just rumors)
