Well, I think (considering the amount HM Queen Margrethe II smokes, that perhaps TRH Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark may well be the Monarch/consort pair. I Think HM Queen Elizabeth II sall out-live her Danish cousin.

It is very interested indeed who would be be King/Queen first of all those pairs. Since ascending to the throne will mean who has seniority in public appearances.

I have read somewhere that the highest ranking Monarch is Queen Elizabeth II. I am not sure who goes next but it could be Queen Margharette then Queen Beatriz, then King Harald, then King Carl Gustaf, then Prince Hans, then King Albert, King Juan Carlos, King Abdullah, Duke Henri, and last I think Prince Albert, since he is the last that has taken a throne.

I could be wrong so please change the order if you know more than I do. :) :)

You are quite correct Mika. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is the highest ranking Monarch in the world. Her status is equal to a King in her position (of Great Britain etc), and even though there is an Emperor (a title which out-ranks King/Queen), in the world (HIM The Emperor of Japan), he is not superior as a Monarch to Her Majesty The Queen.

I believe that such information was even published in the Government/politics section of the 2003 and 2004 Guiness Book of World records.

I think Haakon and Mette-Marit. The King of Norway was treated for bladder cancer and I think he's since had heart surgery. He's much younger than Queen Elizabeth but with his health problems I don't think he'll last long.

Well, if we're looking at age and natural deaths, then Charles is the most ''logical'' choice. However, accidents do happen, not to mentions diseases. We've seen cases before where a monarch died unexpectedly, such as Baudouin of Belgium.

I would hate to think it but I would have to agree.

What are the ages of the current reigning monarchs?

Perhaps King Harald might abdicate if he feels too ill. Are we taking abdication into account or just the death of the current monarch?

Do you think Beatrix will abdicate? There is precedent in the Dutch royal family but it doesn't look like she's going to.

Harald himself has ruled out abdication, as Norway has no tradition for it. Both his father and grandfather stayed on until the "bitter end", with the sons ruling as Crown Prince Regent for quite some time beforehand, and Harald said things along those lines, too.

Considering the life span of QEII's Mother...I think Charles has quite a wait. I think it will be Haakon, King Harald has had the most health problems recently, and doesn't always look too healthy.

I think Haakon and Mette-Marit will take over first. QEII may be older, but King Harald has a lot of health problems.

I believe it will Haakon and Mette-Marit. After that, I see Frederik and Mary. Queen Margarethe's smoking is not good and she can't avoid the consequences forever unfortunately!

I will say Haakon and Mette-Marit will reign first, then Charles unless Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands abdicates.
