Honestly, I've always found Lord F very handsome. I like the pale skin/dark hair contrast, LOVE those huge eyes, even the pallor and the circles beneath the eyes (I suffer badly from both so I can totally relate) only give him a sort of ghoulish quality I personally find appealing. And I know I'm not the only one.

I once lived near Boris Karloff in London......definitely not my type but I admit to having had circles under my eyes after studying for an exam.
She is a very pretty girl and I am sure that wherever the wedding will be she will make a beautiful bride and she will have to be as her future mother-in-law usually does her best to outshine everyone at events - and manages it too.

It would be nice if Sophie wore the diamond fringe tiara as it was worn by Freddie's mum on her wedding day and by his aunt Alexandra and grandmother Princesss Marina on theirs.

Well for a long time stage actresses supplement their income with prostitution. Even after that practice stopped they were always at the leading edge of sexual freedom and generally bohemian behaviour. That kind of reputation isn't so easy so wash.
I suppose actors became acceptable when society became less hypocritical and conservative, and when being an entertainer stopped being regarded an inferior way of making a living.

IMO, Princess Margaret helped a lot. For all her snobbery, she married a photographer and partied with show-business celebrities.

Not to get off topic completely, but wasn't there was reservations from HM when Lady Sarah wanted to marry Mr. Chatto? I recall reading that Lady S really had to convince HM she was in love w him and he was The One. The gist of this was that HM was being protective of her neice and only wanted the Best for her.

Anyhow, I think that things have indeed changed in terms of marrying into the RF. And Lord F is not HM's nephew.

Master and Miss xxxx Windsor.

Frederick has no title to pass on to his children.

The same when his sister marries - like Lady Sarah Chatto's children they will be Miss or Master xxxxx her married name.

Hello magazine has a few pages about the engagement of Freddie and Sophie - it says that he proposed during a visit to Frogmore House at Windsor on Valentine's Day (maybe like Peter and Autumn thet could have their reception here). It also states that Princess Michael is "euphoric" that Freddie is marrying and that she gets along well with Sophie as they are very similiar with their love of the arts. Hello suggests that in the time of the economic crisis, the Kents could be aware that holding a lavish celebration (similair to the one organised in 2001 for Freddie's 21st birthday at the Orangery in Kensington Palace for over 500 guests in a Loius XIV theme) would bot be appropiate. Instead it suggests that wedding may take place in Suffolk where Sophie's parents have a house.

Prince Charles is Freddie's godfather and could be a likely guest as are William and Harry who are close to the Kent children.

Perhaps the current members of the BRF will accept those "tastefully done" sex scenes and let by gones be by gones. However, I have a feeling the previous generation of royals are spinning in their graves.
Congratulations to the couple.

She's described as "uninhibited and adventurous." Hmmmmm. Perhaps she's the perfect match for Lord Frederick then.

The title of that newspaper report was shocking but on reading the article I don't think there is anything to worry about. I thought at first that she had been in a pornographic film but it was a perfectly legitimate film by a twice Oscar nominated director and seems to have been made whilst she was with Lord Freddie so it won't be a surprise to him.

I was rather put off by the statement that the first site of her in the film is performing a sex act. Not "involved in a steamy love scene", but "performing a sex act." That just sounds cheap.

Since none of us know what Princess Michael "thinks" about her son's fianceé, posts purporting to state what she "thinks" have been removed.

Freddie Windsor's royal bride-to-be appears in sex scenes in her latest film | Mail Online

The latest work by Freddie Windsor's fiancee is unlikely to make it as far as the Kensington Palace DVD player.
For Sophie Winkleman, who is engaged to be married to Lord Frederick, the son of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, appears in several sex scenes in Love Live Long.

You are quite right. A fair number of actresses/ballet dancers used to have Maecenas, who would support them financially in return of having intimate relationships. For instance, a famous ballet dancer such as Matilda Kshesinskaya was supported by then Tsarevich Nicholas and Grand Duke George Alexandrovich, his brother. The times have changed. Let us what will come out of this union.

I think the fact that he doesn't perform royal duties and isn't supported by the Crown gives Freddie a bit more freedom in choosing a partner. Even if she has done questionable movies (as the tabloid articles are now trying to suggest), they will be able to live a private life out of the spotlight. She won't be subject to public scrutiny in the same way that Prince Andrew's wife would be; that seems to have been a big part of the Koo Stark problem.
