Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Countess Sophie

Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus

King Harald and Queen Sonja

King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia

Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian

C.Prince Willem-Alexander and C.Princess Maxima

Infanta Cristina and Iñaki

C.Prince Haakon and C.Princess Mette-Marit

C.Prince Frederik and C.Princess Mary

C.Prince Naruhito and C.Princess Masako: I know, unlike the couples above, who always show their affection in their eyes or little gestures, the Japanese royals do not show their feelings openly, but the support the prince has always and publicly shown to his wife speaks loudly, IMHO, of their love after she had put aside her fears of what her life could be as the wife of the Imperial heir (fears, that, sadly, became real) and finally accepted his marriage proposal.

I do agree they must love each other very much after so many years, the many things they have endured after the threesome marriage was openly known worldwide and I do not recall seeing Prince Charles smiling and looking so happy before on pictures and videos, but they do not match my idea of "romantic".

Unlike Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian of Sweeden who remained together for so many years before they were allowed to marry or like Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Countess Sophie who had to endure a morganatic marriage, Camilla and Prince Charles married other people instead of remaining together.

And that decision would later be the cause of so much pain to their spouses (late Princess Diana in particular) but specially to their children (I know, they all looked very happy at C-C's wedding but the four of them must have suffered a lot when the truth about their parents' marriages was uncover) so they do not match my idea of the most romantic royal male/female or couple.:(

I must admit that Prince Charles surprised me with how romantically he has demonstated affection for Camilla. I really didn't think he had it in him. A lot of people are going to get hurt in a really bad marriage and its never as simple as saying that it was one person or the other who caused all the unhappiness which is why I'm always happy to see couples who finally get it right. There's too much unhappiness in the world to begrudge a couple who were meant for each other their happiness.

I think the men that had to fight for the women they loved really proved themselves in ways that other men have not.

Harald's love for Sonja is a good example of that and I really admire Prince Bertil sticking it out for Princess Lillian.

The Grand Duke of Luxembourg, Henri, and his wife Maria Teresa went through a similar situation like Harald and Sonja, Beatrix and Claus. I heard that he refused to be grand duke (see the Henri and MT thread) unless he was allowed to marry MT. I think that's just what makes them better loved by the people of their countries.

I did not know that. Here it was informed he did not tell her who he really was until he proposed, a fact that almost leaded them to a complete breakup, but I was not aware they had to go through all that, too.
Their wedding was beautiful and romantic, and despite of all the infidelity rumours around them, they have always looked happy together.

Totally agree. As I said, I have never seen prince Charles looking so happy before. And their love had proved to be real and strong after all they had gone through. Had this thread been called royal couples still in love/looking happy together after all this time, etc., they would have been in my list, despite of the circumstances around their long term relationship.

On the other hand, and just to clarify my point of view, I was not begrudging as a late Princess Diana worshipper (I just adored her but I do not think she was flawless, just human) but because at the time of her marriage she seemed to be a naive teenager (almost a kid) that was not aware of, let say, the game rules et al, and because as a teacher, I have witnessed how much children suffer when they find out their mothers/fathers are going to divorce, are cheating their mother/father, etc., when just the people around them being aware of the situation, not the whole city/country. So I can not imagine how much Camilla and Charles's children must have suffered with the whole world discussing their parents relationship on the headlines. That's why Charles and Camilla don't fit in my definition of romantic couple like the rest.

AGREE.
Now things are in order, the C&C couple is happily married, and we all intend to forget that this story completely destroyed Diana. I do not want to open a new Diana discussion, and subject is out of topic here, but when she married Charles she was an innocent child. Her goal was to succeed her marriage, and this is a normal goal for every bride. Independently how she reacted after, basically she was cheated, without being aware of the situation, and this was Charles responsibility, not Camilla's (as many people intented to say at this moment).
As you very correctly said, we do not know how deeply this story hurt their children, Wil & Harry are obliged to smile and never complain, but chock should have been very strong, especially when nasty details were known by more than 1bio people in this earth...
Nevertheless, despite the good or bad Charles' behavior during all these years, the outcome of their story shows that their feeling were really strong, and this is recpectable.:)

Well, they certainly match my idea of being romantic. You've got a point though. They did marry other people. They didn't fight like many othrs. However they are married now and they are happy and they are romantic. I think it's quite romantic when Prince Charles referred to Camilla as "my darling wife" for so many occassions. And they seem so perfectly happy they I didn't hesitate to put them on my list of most romantic couples.

To me the most romantic are:

1. Infanta Cristina & Iñaki Urdangarín: 4 kids, 8 years of marriage and still in love as the first day, they only met for a year before they got married, it was like meant to be:)
2. Princess Astrid & Prince Lorenz of Belgium: 5 kids, 22 years of marriage and they still hold hands like teens
3. Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia: the looks, the gestures, etc
4. Crown Prince Haakon & Crown Princess Mette-Marit: he fought for his true love as his father did and she got the entire fairy-tale ending
5. Crown Prince Phillippe & Crown Princess Mathilde: the way they look at each other, the way they hold hands, etc

I agree.They were both romantic,prince Rainier and Princess Grace

The Queen is so used to her husband's gift that she makes certain that she gets up earlier to make space for the flowers in her office. She than sits and waits for her present to arrive. I pity the florist if it is late.
Aww, that's really cute - I smiled when I read that. I don't think it would seem nearly so sweet from Haakon of Frederik or one of the more obviously romantic men because it would be much more expected, but from an old, seemingly-insensitive, buttoned-up English gentleman like Philip...it's just darling!

This thread and the thread "Most romantic royal male/female" have been merged as both of them discussed the same topics and we want to reduce the number of threads dealing with the same contents.
Thanks for understanding.

My most romantic couples:
Baudouin - Fabiola (through all those years)
Philip - Mathilde (they looks, their gest to each other)
Victoria - Albert (one from the past)
Willem-Alexander - Maxima (their wedding, gestures)
Bertil - Lilian (after so long finally marriage)
Henri - Maria Teresa (they looks)
Felipe - Letizia (their interraction...)
Madeleina - Jonas (almost royal, their engagements...)
Naruhito - Masako
All couple is romantic. No matter if we see it or not on pictures, photos, videos.

Which one of them was/is the most romantic...
I think that one of the most romantic men was Baudouin.
All his gestures to Fabiola through all those years no matter what happen...
He loves her she love him until the end of time.

Who is the most romantic man at the moment hard to say.
Who is the most romantic woman... I think that Mathilde.
That how she looks on Philippe, how she touch him.
