Interesting, I did not know that Queen Alexandra smoked. Well, it was modern and hip in those days I think!

I find it interesting that Queen Elizabeth and most of her children,Diana ect don't smoke or tired it only to give it up but most of the younger British royals do smoke.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that most of the people like to live the opposite to the older generations and they all were chain smokers in HM's fathers generation. Plus some suffered from lung or throat cancer which is pretty deterring.

Btw, does Zara Phillips smoke?

Prince Charles is an avid anti-smoker and has never smoked. Princess Anne never smoked though she did admit to trying it when she was younger. Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York smoked until the birth of their first child. Andrew is now reported to be a "social smoker". Edward is like Charles is an avid anti-smoker.
i read sum where charles smoked but quit becuse the way his grandad died

Smoking is a habit that extremely difficult to break once you start it. When I see younger people smoke, it's very sad. They know the health risks but because the effects of it doesn't often show up for decades (lung, jaw,throat cancer), perhaps they think it isn't going to affect them. Or somehow they will be the lucky one who doesn't get sick down the road.

Someday perhaps decades from now you will see a royal on television doing a public servant announcement urging people (from his or her hospital bed) not to smoke or not to get into the habit of doing so. Royals are not immune to health problems relating to smoking.

He must have been very bright child, as Charles was 4 years old when his Grandad died.

Does anyone else think that Queen Margrethe looks fabulous smoking? I know it's an icky habit, but she looks so full of conviction/satisfaction when she lights up. She's the only one who can ever carry off the "cool" smoking look (as far as I've ever seen).

Does Prince Amadeo (sp?) of Belgium smoke?

I do not see any relevance in which Royal does or doesn't smoke,it doesn't make them worse or better humans then they are.It's just the hype thing of "Oh gosh,how gros,they smoke...." .It's each and eveyones choice,you smoke or you don't,voila.Tell you that,there are more who do then there are who do not.But never in public,except Daisy as she couldn't be bothered by any petit bourgois,good for her.
No,I don't promote smoking and I don't smoke myself in case one might wonder.

Cool

I believe I had read a couple of years ago that Queen Margrethe quit smoking in public so there no longer any press photos of Daisy smoking.

It really surprises me how many royals smoke. It's a lot more than I would have thought. Sometimes I wonder if the royals who smoke think that somehow they will not have health issues down the road or somehow believe that they will be the few lucky ones that are not touched by health issues relating to smoking. They probably don't think about this at all and probably aren't happy when people bring this up.

Health issues relating to smoking doesn't discriminate (it can be found in the highest socio-economic levels to the lowest). Access to good medical care helps but it doesn't always save you from having chronic health issues relating to smoking.

I've never smoked in my life and I never acquired the habit of it as it is one of the most difficult habits to break. I've seen people try to quit smoking and some succeed and then others don't.

If I offended someone by making this comments, I apologize. This was not my intention nor was it my intention to tell someone what to do and what not to. I've known too many people who have suffered from smoking and this is why I'm passionate about it.

Smoking is more accepted in Europe and Asia than in the US, although rates for smoking are now rising again in the US especially among teenagers and young adults. In Europe the health consequences of smoking haven't been presented as aggressively as in the US and Canada. Europe has started to address smoking and it's dangers in the last 10 yrs or so.

That is an generalisation. Sweden have been running the health consequences at least s much as the US and started with it seriously over 30 years ago, and have as far as I know more restricive rules regarding smoking than any US State (altough some US counties have stricter rules). And as usually what is true for Sweden is true for most of Scandinavia, but perhaps not all (hmpf.. Denm...).

I am most saddened to learn that royals of the Islamic faith smoke. It is forbidden by the Qua'ran to use stimulants (alcohol, tobacco, etc.), but there they are professing to be Muslim and smoking (and drinking) away. Yes, this is a criticism.

Like Charles, I'm an avid anti-smoker!
But I can be calmer about it now that it's been mostly banned in public places, so I don't have to put up with second-hand smoke any longer.
I really don't care what people do in the privacy of their own homes, so if they want to rot their lungs out and get cancer or emphysema, it's up to them.

However, I think many young people smoke in a desperate effort to keep their weight down, especially celebrities.
