Adoption Rules

As I understand it, adoption is for the benefit of the child and not for the purpose of finding a ruling royal. Of course in some cases adoption is necessary as royal families have more than one consort and so on. For example the current royal family of England. Whether a child should join the line of succession has to do with their merit. Are they a royal themself already? Is their spot in succession a regnant position or merely a prince or princess in title? The fact is when joined into a royal family all are welcome though not all are equal in stature. Adoption is for the benefit of the child and their life. In this day and age countless families are single parent families and many are multi-parent families. So in essence the answer is YES and NO. It depends on the child, the family and the country. Often in America, people do not adopt others children so that they will still receive child support from the biological parent. Often financial issues out weigh the emotional connections of adoption. The other key issues are blood relationship and percentage relationship to Queen Victoria. This is important for the purpose of pairing so that the royals lines continue in existence.

If Prince Harry was married and had two biological children and something happened to him and his wife, the two children would be in the line of succession and someone in the family would raise his children since they are flesh and blood of the royal family.

If he wasn't married and had two children, then then wouldn't be in line to the throne. They may or may not be raised in the royal family.

In other countries, it depends, I guess.

Could Prince Harry adopt if he had to?

Harry just like anyone can adopt a child. The child just wouldn't be in the line of succession.

I am not sure why someone would 'have to' adopt? Harry is not heir and if he wants to remain a childless bachelor for life there would be no issue with that.

As far as I know, Zsa Zsa Gabor (* 1917, or before), is still alive.

Yes, Zsa Zsa is definitely alive though the 99 year old is in bad health, having a leg amputated and has been on a feeding tube.

The life and death dates in the post you responded to do not refer to Zsa Zsa. They refer to Princess Marie-Auguste of Anhalt the woman who adopted Zsa Zsa's husband and how he claims to be a prince. She died in 1983.

She was great-grandmother of Grand Duke Georg Mikhailovich, one of the best claimaints to the Russian throne. His father is the eldest child of Marie's son with her first husband Prince Joachim of Prussia.

I don't know of any law that would prevent a royal from adopting - most likely the child wouldn't be in the line of succession if they didn't have royal blood but what if they did? If the child was distantly related to them or directly related to them would this make a difference.

Dynastic adoption has occurred in the past, often with the result of raising the child's place in the order of succession, or to eliminate the possible ambiguity of the question of succession. Some examples are cited earlier in this thread.

Today they can privately adopt as anybody else - Dynastic adoption is another thing, and would need in most european countries (if not all), as they are democracies, the consent of parlament / goverment / or a law set in place.
