Former Imperial, Princely and Royal Houses

There seem to be an inordinate number of "former royals" floating around Europe. I have a list of almost three pages worth of princes born between 1986-1992 and I keep finding more. What gets me about all of these people is that they are completely off the radar screen (internet searches for their names only turn up geneaology websites) BUT they manage to find each other. It seems that every mediatized prince is married to a mediatized princess. How do they find each other? Are they all part of some social network that we are left out of? I am completely lost as to how these people manage to connect (quite honestly, I want to know because I want to find them). Does anyone have any idea how these people find each other? Is it via charity organizations or private parties or what? Help me out here.

Yes, they belong to the family and social network called the Gotha, and the likelihood of any of us receiving an invitation is remote.

the're is really something like "the Gotha" there is even a book about it. It is called "Almanach de Gotha". It is a really serious thing. It wouldn't surprise me if there where really parties where you can only enter when you're in this book. Almanach de Gotha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This high nobility they meet eachother also at the very expensive schools they go to. If you check, for example, Facebook, you can see that al this high noble young people go to the same schools.
Here is a link tho an online Gotha book. I don't know if it is completely correct and if everyone who should be in there is on this web-page.
An Online Gotha

Any German royal or princely wedding is a "Gotha party". As an example, here is a selection of the guests from the wedding of Frst Alexander of Schaumburg-Lippe, June 2007:

Schaumburg-Lippe Guest List

(can't link directly, so click on 'Special Reports', then 'Alexander and Nadja' at the bottom of the list, then 'Guestlist')
