He is not a theologian or academic. He "studied theology at university"! His views are only published because of his relationship to the BRF. I wonder how "pro life" he would be if his wife, sister or one of his nieces was attacked, raped and became pregnant by the rapist! Would that be a gift from God?????

It is difficult to judge what happens in his soul,what are his exactly thoughts...
I suppose,maybe he intended to talk about general matters,not these horrible cases...

In today's politically-correct climate, I find it refreshing that someone speaks openly about his Christian beliefs. He's not a Royal Highness and not sponsored by the tax-payer, and he lives in a democracy that, at least in theory, allows a person to state his opinion.

Agreed! So enough from me on the subject

Well his views are well known and in line with his strict Catholic views, however if he were Mr Nicholas Smith or even Lord Nicholas Smith his views would not receive the same or perhaps any media attention. It is the Windsor name that grabs the press. While I would disagree with his views he is, like everyone else, entitled to express them.

In a recent interview Lord Nicholas Windsor has talked once again about his religious views,the causes that lead him to embrace the Catholic faith and his memoirs about the Pope Ioann Paul II.

The way they're smiling and standing, it's as if they've never seen a camera before and they're making the most of it.

Not a good picture at all. They look like they are playing dress up in their parent's clothes. They looked better at the Prussian wedding.

I read up on Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor after reading these posts. He and his family live in Italy. He is now 41. The rest of it you have in your other posts. One other thing, some of the children of his older brother also converted to Catholicism.

I suppose it is possible that Lord Nicholas has one of the royal maladies, Porphyria, and that this was what caused some of the illness that people have posted earlier. Porphs (people with porph) often become semi-reclusive, for the simple reason that the world is full of "triggers" which can bring on a porphyria attack. Therefore they tend to go out seldom--Nicholas has been photographed going to to several Royal Family and German events recently. It may be that if he has this disease it is under control. And one way to control it is to live as he does, a peaceful rural life (but without the pesticides and herbicides of commercial food growing, which are triggers).
Another factor which might indicate this illness is his pallor. Porphs are often pale, not always from anemia, but because they avoid sun. They tend to break out in lesions when exposed to too much sun. The Porphyria mutation which his Glouster cousin had does produce facial lesions sometimes but not always.
These things are said not to demean but to applaud him, if he has this struggle. A courageous being. The religious intensity could also be a way he has dealt with such a stealthy and life-altering disease, if he has it. Possibly his siblings and were also motivated in this way. Adversity makes some people reach for spiritual help rather than a pill or a bottle; and in the case of a person with porphyria, most of the pills and all of the alcohol bottles are verboten ways to seek solace; they will bring on attacks (not all pills, just many).

I doubt changing religion had anything to do with this disease he may or may not have. The fact that he prefers a quiet life and looks pale is slim to diagnose a man with such a serious disease.
Not everyone in the BRF can be linked to porphyria.

I did read somewhere, that Nicholas and his mother the duchess suffer from celiac, which causes a person to be anemic, could be th reason he is pale
