Is keeping an original faith accepted today? For example: A Catholic princess of Belgium wanted to marry the Lutheran crown prince of Denmark. I'm not entirely certain, but I believe that there is a clause in the constitution that says members of the royal family must be Lutheran. If the princess did not want to give up her faith, would the marriage be allowed? Or, would parliament issue a special law (as they do for immediate citizenship of spouses of Danish royalty) for that princess if she agreed to raise her children in the Lutheran faith?

Prince Henri of Denmark converted from Catholicism to Lutheranism before marrying Queen Margrethe.

Princess Khaliya Aga Khan converted to Islam from Christianity before marrying Prince Hussein.

As for Queen Noor, I read that her parents didn't educate her in any concrete religion, encouraging her to choose her own spiritual way. And that Islam was the first religion which interested her.

Princess Shams Pahlavi converted from Islam to Catholicism.

There have been many repeats in names mentioned of royal converting to religions. I see no problem in repeating something so people do not have to go back to and check.

Protestant or Orthodox Christian? The latter, as far as I know. And as Biri said above, Q.Noor was encouraged to choose her own religious/spiritual path. She didn't feel close to Christianity anyway.

Nation of Islam is a separate religion from Islam originating in the US. Though I suppose you could have just meant she joined the ummah
