That is interesting Yennie. I know I read somewhere (a few years ago now) but I can't remember where that Queen Silvia was a Catholic.

Svenska kyrkan

The Church of Sweden (Svenska kyrkan) was "State church" when Queen Silvia and King Carl Gustaf married. And Silvia had to convert to the "State church", an Evangelical Lutheran church. In year 2000 the State and the Swedish church separated. The Church of Sweden was founded. The Church of Sweden is a national church, open to everyone living in Sweden regardless of nationality.

So she definitly had to convert, I had thought that allready... But which belief did she had before her marriage. Was she Roman-Catholic or did she belong to another Prostestant church?

She wasn't a Catholic but converted from another form of protestantism just as Mary had to do in Denmark when she changed from Presbyterian to Luthern. It's all a bit silly really. You should convert to a religion out of conviction not for marraige. The Dutch have the right idea, Maxinina didn't have to convert when she married and what is the point of having freedom of religion if that freedom isn't given to members of the royal family?

I don't think that Silvia (or Mary or Henrik for that matter) HAD to convert...but the churches in Sweden and Denmark are closely tied to the state and the royal families, so I think they chose to. I think they did it out of respect and as a symbol of their commitment to their new countries.

In the case of Silvia and Mary, I don't think that switching from one form of Protestanism to another is really that big of a switch...I think that most of the beliefs and practices are pretty similar. So I think it's more like switching churches than switching religions.

I do agree, though, that it was nice that Maxima was allowed to stay Catholic, although the Netherlands is home to about equal numbers of Catholics and Protestants, so that probably had something to do with it.

I know the SRF has family in Brazil, Germany, and basically extended family in all the European monarchies but does anybody know if the SRF has any close (cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.) family living in the States? Besides Madeleine in NYC right now of course....

No. The Emperor and Empress of Japan paid a State Visit to Sweden in May 2000. However, the Japanese Prime Minister, Koizumi, was in Sweden for two days last week. He received an audience with the King among things.

But however, in 2007, a return State Visit by the King and Queen to Japan is planned. But no dates or additional info is available yet, so it's way too early for a thread.

While CPV sounds amazing. My mutti and vati were awesome enough to call me Victoria, and it's so cool knowing that your name belongs to such a beautiful and talented woman. I would like to think my parents named me after her, but alas, they didn't. They just thought that I looked victorious. The Crown Princess is going to rock as Q of S for sure and kudos to the country for being ahead of the ball game in terms of girl power. You ladies and gents are on the ball.

Is Ferfried von Hohenzollern a brother-in-law of Brigitta?

Hey everyone,

here in Germany a TV show has been in the headlines lately. Prince Ferfried of Hohenzollern wants to marry Tatjana Gsell, a more or less high society lady, she`s quite scandalous. They air all the preparations on TV. I have not seen the show but I read that Ferfried is the brother of Hansi, who is Brigitta`s husband. That would make the Swedish Royals quite close relatives to Ms Gsell and Ferfried.
Does anyone know if it is true or just another story the magazines made up?
Here`s a picture:http://img.stern.de/_content/55/88/5...na_500_500.jpg

I was just reading in the Denmark thread that Mary has a lady in waiting. Does Victoria, Madeleine, Or the Queen have a lady in waiting? Do they even do that sort of thing?

Lady-in-waiting

Queen Silvia has at least one. I am am not sure about Crown Princess Victoria and I am pretty certain that Princess Madeleine does not have one.
