I'm going to say Rainier and Grace, not only for their longevity as a couple but also for the glamour factor of a royal marrying a movie star. Also, Rainier really seemed to be completely lost (for lack of a better word) after Grace's death, and I believe he loved her til the day he died.:(

I think it is true love, Love and romance may sometimes not correlate, ie:you can be in love with someone and not be romantic, as it is not always everyones nature to be so, and vice versa, someone can have a really romantic nature, but not be really in love.

i don't think it's that "easy" to claim which is which more romantic.
in the years, looking at pictures of royals,.. i can honestly say there's 2 type : those who likes to show their affections in public, and those who prefer to keep it private.

Frederik & Mary certainly shows how in-love they are with their many many kisses in front of public. yes, they're modern and youthful, and i think that's a good thing.

WA & Maxima certainly on different occasions show how affection they are to one another, not lots of kisses, but their gestures tell all.

I particulary adore Haakon & Mette-Marit. it seems they can adjust themselves to show their affections. sometimes, they're not afraid to kiss in public (like they did in london back in 2002/2003), but lots of time we see them kissing in private but photographed (like when they're holidaying in brazil). Their gestures tells all too.. i like back when MM's pregnant with IA, Haakon sort of just hug her from behind and hold her belly (?). they seems so sincere and not 'over the top', just perfect.

As for those who doesn't show their "romanticness" too often in public, it's certainly not a bad thing. Look at Philippe & Mathilde! yes, they didn't do that big kiss on their wedding balcony, but look at them now. even more in love than they ever been. Philippe's gestures toward Mathilde is so affectionate and sweet.. shy shy but you can see how in love they are.

The same goes for Felipe & Letizia.. i particularly adore them when you see how they seem to manage holding hands or just looking adoringly towards one another, even on official events. Day by day, growing more in love and caring...You can see they're not only loving, but seem to grow respect to each other. Their eyes & looks somewhat describe how they feel.

and that's just some of the crownprincely couples... i'm also fond on how Cristina & Inaki seems so compatible and grew more in love by days (look at how adoringly Inaki kisses Cristina's forehead when they left memorial for madrid bombings), then there's Laurent & Claire (possesive and sincere... that's what i see from them), Pavlos & Marie-Chantal (although lots questions them, but look now, 10 years after their marriage, and grow more 'n'sync' each day), and how about the Dutch couples, talk about Constantijn & Laurentien, Maurits & Marilene, Bernhard & Annette... just wow.. they're clearly romantic.

So, i really don't think, just because couples don't do that public kiss or what-so-ever, that they're not romantic. it's just different for each couples... :) :)

Spot on. They are my pick too. It's in the eyes. The way they look at each other.

I agree so much with you, Purple! I think they will be in love forever. I hope the same for all the other royal couples, but about Philippe and Mathilde the Love and Admiration for each other are evident. Such romantic couple!

How about Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall? Not mentioning what happened in the past. Think about Edward VII and Alice Keppel, then Charles and Camilla. It is heared that Charles spends time and money to buy back the jewlleys which were gifts from the King to his mistress. I think Charles has his own way to be a very romantic person.

i alway think anne marie and Constantine are very romantic. they fell in love at such a young age. it was such a romantic story-the danish princess leaves her home to wed the young king of greece.

and the best part is that after all this time they are still together even though they've been through some very tough times. their troubles brough them together rather than pulling them apart.

they seem very happy in photos. you dont really see public gestures of affection but their love for each other is still evident in their interraction. they have such a sweet family too.I really think they're as romantic as it gets.

I would have to say Frederik & Mary because they are so affectionate in public. I grew up in America and as a child I thought only Britain had a royal family. They are ususally so stuffy with PDA. (I hope no one takes offense to that because I mean the Royal family not everyone in Britain) I was surprised that a royal couple would be so loving in public.

I also think that Haakon & Mette-Marit are romantic because even though there was quite a bit of scandal shrouding their relationship, Haakon fought for her and that shows true love in my eyes.

Prince Charles and Camilla – so many years to be together. And their loyalty and love for each other never wavered.

King Harold and Queen Sonja – they had a real battle for love and they won.

Haakon and Crown Prince Mette-Marit – another victory at the Battle of Norway.

Felipe and Letizia the way they are holding hands and those lovely gestures tell it all.

Cristina and Iñaki – the looks of deepest love they have for each other are enough, and of course their kids!

Crown Prince Wilhelm-Alexander and Crown Princess Maxima
– in love each other everyday.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik – it’s particularly lovely to see a couple of their age and still so romantic.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip - the love and devotion that lasted a lifetime

Actual couples :

Mary and Frederik
Philippe and Mathilde
Christina and Inaki
and of course, despite all and against the entire world, Prince Charles and Camilla, ...It's sad for late Diana, but they do love eachother.

From couples not existing anymore :

Caroline and Stefano, romantism feelings and beauty, frozen by tragedy, THE real perfect love, their three wonderful kids are there to remind them to us.

And of course, Duc and Duchess of Windsor, if reality was like the legend, the absolute romantism.:) unforgettable.
