Willem-Alexander was a known chain smoker and was shown smoking on TV during the coverage of some royal event or other (somebody's wedding, I don't think his own). I've heard that Maxima smoked too, but I have only seen photos of her smoking when she was much younger (Pre- Willem Alexander). I hope they've stopped smoking now that they have a baby at home, but I don't know.
I've seen a picture of Prince Joachim of Denmark smoking (don't know if Alexandra smokes or if Joachim still smokes - as the photo I saw was pre-children) and also King Constantine and Prince Nikolaos of Greece.

Maxima still smokes, or at least she did until very recently. I saw a picture of her puffing away while sitting across from Laurentian and Eloise.

You're right, King Harald has quit smoking since his cancer diagnosis. If you go to the Norwegian forum under the latest King Harald and Queen Sonja News thread, there is an article about how he quit and how he feels about it.

There is also the infamous incident of Queen Margrethe lighting up while visiting a cancer ward. The article even made it to non-royal publications such as People Magazine here in North America and some newspapers here in Canada.

Some other royal smokers to add to the list:
Prince Henrik
Prince Joachim
Crown Prince Haakon
Prince Ernst August
Prince Harry
Lord Frederik Windsor
Princess Marilene of the Netherlands (wife of Prince Maurits)
Prince Johan Friso

Not royal, but royal-affiliated
Pierre Casiraghi (Does sister Charlotte smoke, too?)
Camilla Parker-Bowles - used to smoke, but has since given it up because Charles finds it to be a "filthy" habit

I have also heard that Infanta Elena smokes, though I have never seen a picture.

Interesting! Also, I read that CP Mette-Marit quit smoking a few years ago. I don't remember the specifics, but I think it might have had to do with her being sick.

I seem to remember hearing that somewhere as well. I think it was when she was in the hospital. She got pneumonia or something to that effect? I don't remember either.

Also, I don't think that Prince Henrik smokes anymore. I remember reading in an article during the whole Queen Margarethe and the smoking in the hospital incident where they talked about how he quit a few years ago. I could be wrong though, my memory on this subject is very vague.

Mette-Marit quit smoking after she had pneumonia. I don't recall hearing that she started again.

I had read that Maxima had quit smoking. Maybe she did so because she and WA were trying to conceive. I am not sure if she has resumed smoking. However, she was still smoking even after her wedding.

There is a picture of Haya of Jordan smoking in the Mid. East. Royals section. I once read that she hated smoking, but I soon forgot about it when I saw the picture which had a recent date at the time. Her half brother Crown Prince Hamzah also smokes (at least he did).

I have heard that Infanta Elena smokes as well. I would love to see a picture.

I didn't know that Charlotte smokes. I am not surprised, however. I saw a picture of Andrea smoking when he was about 13. I doubt that Caroline takes this very seriously as she was seen drinking and smoking during her pregnancy with Alexandra. Why would someone who would smoke and drink during the time that she was pregnant give that much thought to her children smoking once they had been born and advanced in age?

Caroline and EA really appear to be chain smokers.

I am not sure if Ana Maria smokes, maybe she did and quit or still does but makes sure to only do so privately.

I thought that Queen Sofia of Spain had quit smoking?

I'm really not sure. For some reason, I really don't think that she does.

Oops! You're right about this. Now that I've read it here, I do recall reading an article about how Prince Henrik quit smoking. My mistake.

I don't think Queen Sofia smokes any more. From what I've read, she has lived a pretty "clean" life in the past decade if not more. She is a vegetarian and is quite health-conscious, like her daughter Cristina.

:o It seems to me as if I had very long ago seen a picture of Queen Anne-Marie with a cigarette in her hand, but I am not quite sure. She was then partly behind someting an it could have been sometining else as a cigarette. But as her mother, Queen Ingrid, smoked, and her sister, Queen Margrethe, is a heavy smoker, I would not wonder if she was a smoker, too. :o

That´s incredable.I never knew that they are smoking,but we shouldn´t forget when somebody who stands in the limelight smokes a cigarette the press will make him a strong smoker...
I myself smoke from time to time but I wouldn´t call myself a smoker.for me a smoker is somebody who smokes regularly(?) every day...

I have pics of these three royals smoking in 1972 during a dinner in Persepolis (Iran), in the celebrations of the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire

I would like to post the pictures but I don't know how!
