It would be great if princes marry princesses. Interroyal marriages solve two big PR problems:new relateves and "spare" princes / princesses.

Lets compare two scenarios:
a) Prince Nikolai marries a Jensen, prince Felix marries a Nielson. All Jensen and Nielsen brothers/sisters/uncle/aunts/etc. are target for the press: old and new scandals, interviews, pictures... And Nikolai, Felix and their wives-princesses try to find their place in buisness world and be royals at the same time.
b) Prince Nikolai is the prince-consort of queen Elisabeth of Belgians, prince Felix is the prince-consort of queen Ingrid. Both princes are carring out royals duties.

Another circle of "parents who know eachother" are the Duke/Duchess of Castro, danish P.Frederik and Mary and P.Laurent/Claire.
The duke's daughters P.Maria Carolina and P.Maria Chiara also attended the first holy communion of P.Laurent's twin-sons

I don't think the British royals are going to change their minds and all of a sudden start interacting with European royals. I can't imagine any of the British royal children spending enough time with their European peers to even get friendly let alone romantic. So, I see Prince George and Princess Charlotte each marrying a high-level aristo who is a child of their parents current circle of friends. Same with James and Louise.


I do like all the suggestions about the princesses and princes of the Belgium, Dutch, etc. royal families. I can see them marrying each other and having beautiful babies together. That would be fun to watch.


I can't imagine any sensible royal wanting their daughter to marry into the nutty Monaco family. Too much drama. Maybe Jacques could marry an American daughter of someone currently famous. Princess North West, anybody? Or maybe Diana Ross's new granddaughter, Princess Jaggar Snow. HA!

P.Nori wouldn't be that bad as a princess, she is cute (yes, i rate my princesses on a cuteness-scale ) and already seems to have a bit of a mind of her own and a happy person, but shudder to think the circus that her mom would bring into the mix....

...or worse....the grandmother....

Could you, just for the thought, imagine Q.Elizabeth II, then around 110 years old, get a visit from a twenty-something P.George telling her "i met this really great girl, her name is North, and i want you to meet her family"
This will be the epitomy of all "we are not amused" looks

North is cute as a button, I agree, and I'm quite certain she'll be absolutely gorgeous when she grows up – totally wouldn't mind if she married into some royal family. The various royal families also need more people of colour. Her family though... I think I'd be able to cope if Lucifer's homegirl *cough* I mean, Kris, was banned from every royal event but what are the odds that that would happen.

I think it would be fun if the Scandinavian royal families somehow became intertwined again. It's so lovely to see QMII, CG and Harald together knowing that they're cousins.

There's an idea for a sitcom! If this actually did happen, Her Majesty would probably be asking for smelling salts, for possibly the first, and last time. I don't even want to think of how Kanye, and Kim, and the rest of the nut cases would behave. Yikes...

As we know years ago cousins would even be marriage-material, but even for just a thought experiment like this i have a hard time imagining f.i. P.Isabella marrying P.Felix of Denmark or P.Amalia of NL marrying her cousin Claus-Casimir... i mean....no...

P.Estelle with P.Vincent though, that would be a cute couple

It is not possible that the Princess of Orange marries her cousin Claus-Casimir Count van Oranje-Nassau van Amsberg. At the moment the First Chamber (the Senate) is reading a Bill which forbids such unions. The Second Chamber (Lower House) has already approved it. (It is more a side-effect of attempts by the Government to fight "enforced marriages" of girls which happens in some ethnic communities in Dutch society).

Like in the Netherlands, to the best of my knowledge, Isabella and Felix wouldn't be allowed to marry here as they're first cousins and thus too closely related. Isabella and e.g. Sverre Magnus in Norway would though because it's a few generations since they last were close family – and it was a such intertwining between the Scandinavian royal families I'd love to see, not a first-cousin marriage which, I agree, is a bit – not to mention the fact that the DRF has living examples of how wrong first-cousin marriages can go (*cough* in Prince Knud's children) and thus presumably know it's best to avoid for that to happen

What was wrong with Prince Knuds children. They may not have been the most attractive looking but it is hardly fair to judge them on that.

I think it's because their mother, Princess Caroline-Mathilde, was their father's first cousin. First cousins is a bit too near in relations for a couple IMO.

Hmm, perhaps we should put up dating profiles. Simply to create an overview of the candidates.

Let me start with Christian (as I know him better than most other royal children).
Born 2005.
Destined to become king Christian XI, so he can't leave Denmark.
Religion: Lutheran. (That is mandatory as future head of the State Church).
Hair: Will probably end up as dark brown.
Eyes: Medium blue.
He seems to grow up to be a tall young man.
Athletic. Very interested in sports - probably very competitive as a result.
Soccer and calisthenics.
He can ride.

Is not at all shy.
Has a very outgoing personality and is willing and capable of approaching and chatting up all sorts of people, adults as well as children.
A sensible, caring and somewhat protective older brother. But can tease as well.
Seems generally good-natured and cheerful.

Bright. Do already have some experiencing with the press and not being too open with what he says.

Is de-facto bilingual Danish and English by now, perhaps some French as well.

- Now, who would be a suitable match for this magnificent specimen?

Danting profile.

Name: Nikolai. Prince to Denmark.
Born: 1999.
Looks: Dark brown hair and medium blue eyes, with slightly Asian facial features.
Tall and slim.

Very bright indeed. (According to the headmaster at the boarding school he attends. "He needs to be challenged intellectually" and that he will!)
Probably a thinker more than an active young man.
A very loving older brother. (Not all boys age fourteen wish to be photographed kissing a younger sister).
Languages: Bilingual Danish and English. Probably at least one more language to at least a competent level.

As son of a secondary royal he is likely to have to create a career for himself and basically only be a part-time royal occasionally and when the big show is on. He might also settle, and even be willing, to settle abroad.
Financially he is likely to be pretty well off, certainly when he is going to inherit a quarter of his father's fortune. We are talking at present at least a couple of million Dollars in inheritance.

Dating profile.

Name: Isabella, Princess to Denmark.
Born: 2007.
Looks: Medium blue eyes. Probably ending up with medium to dark brown hair.

Charming and sweet personality. Perhaps with a slight mischievous streak.
Is self-confident and not at all shy, on the contrary actually. Likes to perform. Don't mind being seen.
Very approachable. Probably spontaneous to a considerable degree. Cannot sit still. A physically expressive person.

Interests: Likes to dance. Can ride.
Languages: On the way to be or perhaps already bilingual, Danish and English.
Unless she marries and settles abroad, she and any husband she may have, will have a high-profile role within the DRF. (A Chris O'Neil option is not likely here IMO).
