For me, these couples are soulmates:

Victoria and Daniel
Mary and Frederick
Maxima and Willem-Alexander
Letizia and Felipe
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip
Wiliam and Catherine
Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mother and George VI
Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles

Everytime I see pics or videos of these abovementioned couples, you can just see the radiance between them...you cannot help smiling and basking in their happiness

Charlene and Albert - They surely did have to wade through a lot of lies and speculation shortly before their marriage. Look at them now...they seem wonderful together.


Although no longer together, I believe there is a life-long love affair going on between Prince Andrew and Fergie.

Yes, i second these and would add:
Q.Beatrix and P.Claus
P.Naruhito and P.Masako
Q.Elizabeth II and P.Philip
P.Victoria and P.Daniel
K.Felipe and Q.Letizia
There are many other couples that clearly are very fond of and in love with eachother, but as for True Love, these couples "jump" out for me...

Honestly I think any royal of the modern times married for love...

I wouldn't have bet on Philippe and Mathilde to last long, and here they are happy and with four children!

TBH I've never thought Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip was a two-way true love story. I would say Camilla and Charles; W-A and Maxima; William and Catherine;Haakon and Mette-Marit; Felipe and Letizia

I think out of all the couples you've mentioned, that Elizabeth and Philip would be the best example of true love out of them all. It is a love story that encompasses over 6 decades and has survived and grown stronger no matter what they had to face together in life.

Osipi, A well written passage!!
Once Elizabeth knew she wanted Prince Philip as her future husband, she knew all eyes would be on her and Philip. After all, she was the heiress. She could not step through the looking glass and return with a replacement.
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary became the bride, the wife, the mother, and the Queen. She and Philip endured matters.
She did not know that she would be Queen so young.

Baudouin and Fabiola
Andrew and Sarah
Beatrix and Claus
Albert and Paola
Philippe and Mathilde
Astrid and Lorenz
Daniel and Victoria

TBH, with the exception of Philippe/Mathilde and Daniel/Victoria it's a little too early for me to call what I believe to be true, soulmate love on the current generation of younger Royals. For all we know, they might all be soulmates! But I need five or ten more years for most of the rest of them.

Lasting 60+ years is not an indication of "True Love" between the two of them

Yes we know that the marriage has survived but I have always felt that although she may love him, her duty is paramount and he has resented it. Now, they are in happy companionship which comes with age.

If anyting i would sya that Phil was less "in love" with the queen than she with him. She fell for him at 13 and I dont think she ever cared for another man, or would want anyone but him. Whereas he loves her and is a devoted and loyal husband but i think he was responding to her love, rathter than being the one who loved.. As time's passed I think he has grown into love with her, and Im sure he never for a moment regreted that she is dedicated to her duty. Of course she is, she is the queen and he respects that.

I'd say no and no. Albert IMO married tot have heirs.. and Fergie and Andrew are good firends but a long way from their time of being in love...

Funny. Albert and Charlène. The last couple I would pick as "true love marriage". We all remember the tensions shortly before and during the wedding.

I agree. In fact, I'm also surprised at some of the other choices for a true-love match-

Mary and Frederik?

Haakon and Mette-Marit?

Even if you disregard the gossip (which I never do), those matches wouldn't strike me as good examples of true love.

I see a lot of royal marriages as strictly one way, if that.
More often it seems like a convenience- with the royal making a choice and the other person falling in.

Difficult. The ones I can think of are King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Belgians and I suppose Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg. And King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway.

You provide an interesting point, Mirabel.

E other person falling in.
I dont know much about the Scandinvian royals, is there any reason why you say that you dont think Fred and Mary of Denmark and Haakon and Mette Marit are in love? Is is the social and cultural gaps?
