King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima certainly have been smokers. I think the Queen quit smoking before she started to date the (then) Prince of Orange. The King has not been smoking for a long time except a cigar so now and than (it is or was the use that gentlemen withdrew from a (formal) diner to be 'entre nous' enjoying a cigar). Sometimes the cigars are offered during the café/thé & friandises as closure of a diner.

(My parents both began smoking as very young people (preteens), but they both quit before I was 5 in the 60's).
She probably stole her father's. It is said the Queen Mother was also a closet smoker (but not a heavy one)

There were also a ton of soldiers around them and soldiers would have cigarettes. At the time, cigarettes weren't considered bad. Most of the population were probably smokers.

Addtionally, i earlier times smoking was just a "mature" thing to do, nothing sneaky about it. My dad got his first cigaret from the priest when he was an altar boy.

The past is a foreign country, they do things different there...

I have a friend of about 29, who has never smoked, presently fighting for her life against Lymphoma (missed 18 months ago so it has been running unchecked). there is nothing more awful to inflct on your worst enemy. 3 rounds back to back of high dose chemotheray. The nicest person you will ever mete. Life is unfair in that the wicked flourish, dispite horrible behavior, and the just die horribly.

Scooter. lymphoma is terrible but not equated to smoking. There are many cancers that occur in just anyone.

Although also untitled and not a royal, I wonder if Marius Borg smokes.

Ah the DM. Not only did it write a story about it but asked Kensington Palace for 'comment'

Everybody knows that Harry is a heavy smoker. He should seek medical help to treat his drug addiction to nicotine.

I think most of the young members of the BRF, heck most young Royals period, are smokers.

I thought Harry no longer smoked, because for a long time was not photographed smoking.

William and Kate smoke?

Allegedly there were photographs from that now infamous trip to France picturing the DOC smoking.

If photos existed of Kate smoking they would be available on the Internet somewhere and printed in the papers. The topless photos have seen the light of day so there would be no reason for the press not to print a photo of Kate smoking.

With the rules against smoking inside many public places, it would be easy to snap a photo of a royal stepping outside to light one up like Harry just did.

Maybe he has. I think it's a difficult habit to break; much better never to start.

Some people have good results with those electronic cigarettes; he could try that.

Most YOUNG Europeans smoke ! More than ever [because of the repressive anti-smoking fanaticism imported from California], it remains a rebellious, and therefore attractive habit.

They won't think it's so attractive when they're coughing their lungs out.

Yes, I am sure you are right. Young Americans too.

It probably remains attractive until ones' nauseous, bald-headed self is hooked up to the IV tubes shooting chemotherapy poison into your body in an attempt to preserve ones' life.

Isn't a 'crafty' cigarette- which is then passed back and forth- quite likely to have been cannabis? That was a joint.

"After inhaling, the super-fit prince can be seen handing the cigarette back, only to repeat the process again moments later."

Most people aren't passing a regular cigarettes back and forth between each other.

Not sure about that. The ones that were published were more sensational and they along with the other unsold ones were then subject to a Court case were they not, hence there not being published if they did indeed exsist. There were also photographs of a packet of cigarettes inside the then Kate Middleton's handbag taken at one time.
