I am not sure that they do "look down" on the Grimaldi anymore....Albert is invited to every single major Royal event as were his parents Grace and Rainier.

Every remaining Royal house attended Grace's funeral and Rainier's as well.

The Grimaldis are "only" Serene Highnesses and not Royal highness but I think that counted for more in the past than it does now. All the Royal/Princely houses are an endangered, shrinking species. Every one of them has welcomed commoners into their midst.

None can claim superiority to any other these days-IMO.

In any case, Albert and his family are one of an extremely small handful of rulers who are not dependent upon the goodwill of press and public to stay on their thrones. They are wealthy beyond belief without taxing their subjects. They don't have to account for their time or the way they spend their money. They can do as they please, and that-as well as their glamour and the high drama of their lives- is exactly part of the reason I love watching them.

I don't imagine they are losing any sleep about being "looked down upon" by the others if they indeed are.

I am not sure if any foreign Royals attended Margaret's service...it was not a State funeral.

Unless they are/were close personal friends of the deceased Royal yes-that's the way it works.

Foreign Royals usually attend funerals overseas by invitation only.

Then Princess Margrethe attended part of her secondary school and university years in the UK.

Quote:
She spent a year at North Foreland Lodge, a boarding school for girls in Hampshire, England,[5] and later studied prehistoric archaeology at Girton College, Cambridge, during 1960–1961, political science at Aarhus University between 1961 and 1962, attended the Sorbonne in 1963, and was at the London School of Economics in 1965.[6] She is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London.[2]

Posts relating to Queen Margrethe and her accent when speaking English have been moved to the Royal Voices thread.
