well, according to some accounts he had higher ambitions then just be the decoy

King Albert II and Princess Paola Ruffo di Calabria met in Rome, during a reception given in the honour of the new pope, I believe. Albert was fascinated immediately (which is not strange, considering Paola's incredible beauty and charm).

so the crownprincely couples have really different situations; according to how they met, and how long after they met eachother, they got married...
letizia and felipe got married really fast isn 'it?
And mathilde and philipe took a bit longer to get to know eachother..:)
that is all very interesting to look at I think.. I like this thread!
Everyone focuses on Felipe and Letizia having got married very fast, bur Cristina and Inaki met in summer 1996 during the Olympic Games in Atlanta and got married in october 1997.

For the royals that married people of a non-royal, non-socialite background (Alexandra, Angela Brown), I wonder how they even managed to be in a position to meet. I mean, I wouldn't expect to run into a prince at any place I went to, you know? I guess it was just Fate/the right timing?

In Cristina & Iñaki's case, the thing was that both were Olympic participants and she came to a party to celebrate the bronze medal gotten by the spanish handball team in Atlanta 96' so she met him there an there was another casualty: they both lived in Barcelona, so everything worked out fine for them to start dating...

She was the flag wearer at Seul 88' and he was the flag wearer at Sydney 2000 (the final ceremony)

Then Crown Prince Olav met Princess Märtha during the 1928 Olympics. That is they knew eachother from before, since they were cousins, but it was during the Olympics their friendship developed to something more.

And not to forget, CP Frederic and Mary, which met during the Sydney Olympics. Not directly at the Olympics, but in connection to it.

I've merged two existing threads, so please read through the thread before making new posts - see first if anybody else has said what you were planning to say.

And, as Alexandria has mentioned earlier in this thread - do check out the newsletter where we featured the royal couples

Sonja&Harald

I read that then Prince Harald met Sonja Haraldsen the first time when he was a young boy.
They met at a summer-camp but didn't really care about each other.
Next they met at a party, in 1959. They decided to date and go out with each other.
Well, the rest is clear: 9 years of wait untill the Wedding in 1968. :)
That's the Story I heard.

This could be a madeup story, but I have heard that Baudoin was on holiday somewhere in Spain, and was just driving around in his car. He then had a bit of an accident; he crashed with another vehicle, and from that car stepped out Doña Fabiola Fernanda María de las Victorias Antonia Adelaida de Mora y Aragón. It was for him love at first sight; the more miraculous thing was that she was a noblewoman and a relative of the Spanish royal family, and a proper bride material for a king right away She BTW wrote children's literature and worked as a nurse at the time.

I really hope it is true, for it is a wonderful, wonderful story.
