I guess both? I mean, doesn't the court find EVERYTHING offensive in some sort of way?:)

Interesting point.

I think it's a refreshing change of pace to have a Stephanie of Monaco who determined to the life she wants for herself, and still is responsible to her family and her country, rather than someone trapped in a still picture of what others want her to be. She makes her own decisions and does what she wants like any other human being.

I think she has a lot of courage to be her own person, regardless of public opinion. Even mine. :) :p

Definitely Stephanie, considering all the privileges in life she's had it's a shame that she seems to have squandered them.

I totally agree. What sort of a King is he. He has the best material luxuries money has to offer while his country suffers. I only hope the next heir can turn things around with 1 wife by his side...who is the next heir anyway?

I just recently saw a tv movie about Princess Margaret and if it is truly based on fact, she was rather shocking, although it was mainly behind closed doors:)

Well, the main difference is that the people who have been the King and Queen of the Hellenes are still alive, and they're rather young, so i dont think the royals of Greece are in the same position with the other ex royal families, european or not.
Yet, I don't find this a reason for them to be schocking. The schocking part for me is that such a beautiful family is not appreciated in their own country.

So, I'll go for Stefanie! So schocking she's become classic!

The divorced between Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra was a shocking news for many people.

I fail to see what is shocking about Haya or how her education is wasted. She is a modern woman forging her way in a world that is still trying to catch up and where women are frequently considered as third class citizens (if they are considered as citizens at all). She is a role model for middle eastern women and, with her new post as President of the International Equestrian Federation she is making an active contribution to the sphere in which her interest lies and representing the Middle East on the world stage in an area whrer the involvement of the Middle Eastern region has been little known and totally underestimated.
Honestly, I think her parents would be proud of the way she is conducting her life and putting Jordan & her adopted country of Dubai on the world map.
Whilst we may not approve of her role as second wife of Sheikh Mo, polygamy is lawful in the arab world and it is a personal choice between the parties involved and we have no right to judge those who choose this way of life.

Most Shocking

Most schocking and uninpropriate are, no doubt, the tapes and letters between Camilla and Charles.

Imprudent but not schocking at all. This kind of correspondancies could kept secret as concerning private life; That is shocking is the fact it was using by the tabloids. it was very imprudent by Camilla and Charles because it was very risquy in their position to do that.

I don't see any shocking attitude but some thought that the Queen should have refrained from smocking in front of journalists.

Why that ? It is her life and it is her health.
The royal family her in Denmark has always like to smoke in public and in privat.

You are absolutely right. "It is her life and it is her health" so one should not mind whether she smokes or not.

Here Here. People know that Margrethe smokes so why be coy about it and pretend that she doesn't?

If you think about it, it's actually quite shocking that in the countries where there are still royal families, there is still an adoring public.
