I've heard that Princess Maxima is still Catholic, and I also heard that one of the wives of Prince Margriet's sons is Catholic as well, although I'm not sure which one. Does anybody else know?

It wasn't one of her sons, who was Catholic, but the wife of one of her sons, one of her daughters-in-law.

I did not notice any mention of Prince Albert II of Monaco. The Grimaldis are all Catholic and even Princess Stephanie said rather recently that she has deep respect for the Church. Monaco is also one of the few countries in which Catholicism is the official state religion of the country.

On the non-reigning side I think the former King Kigeli V of Rwanda is Catholic and the Vietnamese dynasty, of which Prince Bao Thang is the 'would-be emperor' are Catholic. The last Emperor's official wife was from a devout Catholic, raised the children in the Church after the Emperor abdicated in 45 and after her death the Emperor himself converted. I would assume that the 'would-be' Emperor of Mexico, Don Maximiliano Count von Goetzen-Iturbide is also Catholic but I have never heard for sure.
If anyone has not mentioned the Brazilian Imperial Family there are definitely Catholics as well.

Did Maxima have a permission from the Vatican to marry a protestant?. I was under the believe that Catholics married to protestants are supposed to raise their children into catholic faith

Well, it's kind of complicated. I personally don't know about having direct permission from the Vatican, but marriage for Catholics is considered to be a sacrament. If you marry someone outside of the Catholic faith the Church may still accept your marriage as a sacrament. However, it usually means that the two parties have to be married in a Catholic ceremony. In Maxima's case she and Willem-Alexander were not married in a complete Catholic ceremony, but there was a representative from the Catholic Church that participated in the service itself. I would not think that this person would do that if it were not allowed by the Church, therefore it is possible that the Vatican does accept Maxima's marriage as a sacrament. I minored in theology in college and I must say that the Catholic rules for marriage and sacraments were always fascinating to me because there were so many variations. Here's one of my favorite sites. It is very reputable and usually has good and reliable information.

I believe that the Duke of Kent's grandson - the son of the Earl of St. Andrews - converted to Catholicism. His mother has always been Catholic.

Are you referring to Lord Downpatrick? His mother is Silvana Tomaselli and she is Catholic.

I believe that Lord Nicholas Windsor also converted several years after his mother.

I don't know. She's half Brazilian, of course, but I've never heard, that she was Catholic.
