The Prince of Lechtenstein married Angela Brown (of African descent) How has that been taken? I dont follow this couple but does she have many problems?

No, there are no problems at all. Why should there be any?

The couple is living in NYC and maybe show up in Liechtenstein once a year. I doubt if there would be any problems as the princely family of Liechtenstein lead a low-profile life, in accordance to the size of their principality (40.000 inhabitants). I believe Hans-Adam wasn't overpleased with the mariage, as he wasn't very glad with the marriage of his daughter to Phillip von Lattorf, because he still favours marriages with royalty or (higher) nobility.

Hi, Catherine!

Thank you for your response to my post! It was certainly very colourful! I decided to follow your lead and respond in colour as well.. I hope you don't mind.

A black man definitely could not do it, even if he is Kofi Annan's son, a diplomat, a member of Mensa and holds a graduate degree from Harvard (Magna Cum laude). Perhaps that goes without saying. Can you imagine the reaction in Sweden if Crown Princess Victoria presented the above black man as her fiancee? (are you scared yet? ;-) )I think that both Carl Gustaf and Silvia would probably have to be heavily sedated.

Where do you get this silly idea?? Of course it would be perfectly posible. You seem to have the idea that Europe is a racist continent. We're not more or less than others, and a black prince or princess would be perfectly possible.

I'm not going to assume your ethnicity, but perhaps you could take into consideration that I get this 'silly' idea from my own experience as a black person, who has lived and travelled through Europe. Sure, it's possible for a black man to marry into a Reigning Royal family, just like it's possible to find a cure for cancer. I just don't think it's likely. I wouldn't say that all Europeans are rapaging racists, but I personally think that racism is still a major problem in Europe. Sometimes it is relatively dormant, sometimes it is not. Perhaps you snoozed through the riots in France, and somehow missed the comments regarding the 'Black Prince" in Monaco, and skipped over the statements made by a member of the Dansk Volkparti regarding Frederik marrying a black woman when Joachim got engaged to Alexandra. I certainly didn't miss them, but then, I'm a light sleeper.

I used Crown Princess Victoria in my little hypothetical scenario specifically because she will one day be Queen, which of course means that one day her children will reign. Which means if she married a black man, a black person would sit on the throne of Sweden.(not that there hasn't been people of black blood in Europe's monarchies in the past-but it was kept hush hush) I don't think there would be rivers of blood running through the streets of Stockholm over this, but I think there would be some murmuring, maybe even some talk about the 'validity of the monarchy' ; at the least, it would trigger a debate. There would be less controversy if the Royal in question who is marrying a black person is much lower in the line of succession. After all, Lady Davina Lewis is married to a man who is half Maori, and it didn't cause any problem in England. But then, she is so far down in the line of succession that what she does really doesn't matter.

However, that woman would have to have the same qualifications as the black man above, and god help her if she makes a mistake. She will have even less margin for error than our friend Mary.

The same nonsense.... Mary is only criticized on this board, not in Denmark, please make a difference between this forum and the real world.

Point Taken. Perhaps my statement regarding Mary was inaccurate. I should have used Mette-Marit as an example. Please forgive my little faux pas

Maybe you are right, I assumed tthat they were still living there but of course they might have moved. Anyway, they are not living in Liechtenstein :)

I think the worst family when it comes to marrying a commoner, for women at least, is Japan. When the emperors' only daughter married a commoner, she lost her title.

It's just that I had always read that Max was working for a company in Hamburg, and that was where they were living. So, I wasn't saying you were wrong. I just thought maybe they had left Germany.

It may becoming tacky, but there really aren't any choices between the royal circles. They are almost all intermixed. I say with this new fresh blood should do so that they newly infants can interact with each other in the future.

I have to agree with the previous posts. All of the royal families of Europe anyway are all related somehow. Sometimes it's better to go outside "the circle" so to speak. To me royals who have married commoners and have had children, the children seem to be better adjusted. In my opinion anyway.

They are not related that closely anymore these days, especiually the younger generations. So it's time for some equal marriages :)

Still, inbreeding is bad.

depends, if it happens for several generations it is. But if the royals would intermarry now it couldn't be regarded as inbreeding as most of them are not closely related.

I agree with the previous posts. However, I still think it would be ok for them to look elsewhere since there aren't many royals their own age now. I wonder if there are any royals still affected by the Queen Victoria disease: hemophilia.
