In the Italian press the name of the members of the Monaco Princely Family are spelled as follows:

Rainier = Ranieri
Grace remains the same, but it's pronounced in English ( it's Grazia in Italian)
Caroline = Carolina
Albert = Alberto
Stephanie = Stefania
Andrea remains the same, as it is an Italian boy's name; in the feminine it becomes Andreina (rare)
Charlotte = Carlotta, but it often remains the same as in French
Pierre remains the same (although it translates Piero or Pietro in Italian)
Alexandra often remains the same, but sometime it's spelled Alessandra
Pauline remains the same (although it translates Paola in Italian)
Louis is sometimes spelled Luigi, but it often remais the same
Camille also remains the same, although you sometimes find it spelled Camilla.

English is my first language and Spanish is my second and English is a mixture of many languages especially German so I'm guessing any names in Spanish, and german and British.

For the Norwegian Royals:

Harald: Harald

Haakon: Hakon
Mette-Marit: Mathilde-Marguerite
Ingrid Alexandra: Ingrid Alexandra
Sverre Magnus: can't be translated
Martha Louise: Marthe-Louise
Ari: Henri
Maud Angelica: Maud Angélique
Leah Isadora: Léa Isadora

And as Mabel's daughter name is for the family Luana and not Emma, I add Luana: Lou-Anne so Louise-Anne (Lou coming from Louise).
I just found that really interesting thread. But I think you made an error : Mette-Marit is Marguerite-Marie. Mette means "pearl" like Marguerite and the Marit stands for Marie

No, both Mette and Marit comes from the name Margareta/Marguerite, Mette is a Danish form and Marit is a Nordic/Scandinavian form of Margareta.

Alexander is Iskender in Turkish. Since Ottoman Empire abolished in 1922, we don't have royalty. Iskender wasn't used in Ottoman Imperial Family.

Abraham (Ibrahim in Turkish) is a name of one Ottoman sultan. And also there is Solomon (Suleyman in Turkish). However the names are used in English as Ibrahim and Suleiman.

Suleiman the Magnificent - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Elizabeth: Lisbeth
Charles: Carl
William: Vilhelm
Catherine: Katrine/Kathrine/Cathrine (there are several Danish variations of Catherine)
Henry: Henrik
Andrew: Anders/Andreas

Obviously there are Elizabeth's (or Elisabeth's, rather) and William's here in Denmark (it's a bit harder to find a Charles or a Henry and I'm pretty sure that most of the people you'll find are 50+), but I believe these are the original Danish variations.
Philip, Anne, Camilla, Edward (Edvard) and Sophie are all names I'm pretty sure you'll be able to find here too.

Interesting information.
Is " Rion" pronounced like " Ryan"?
