Would she have married him?

There is something I have always wondered, which of the Princesses, CPrincesses, Queen's etc. would have married their husband it they were for instance consruction workers or even missle class?! Please explain.

I'll start:
CP MM of Norway, I'm definitly sure of it, she and Haakon seem to have such an understanding of each other, their faces express a thousand words.

I think that CP Mary would have married CP Frederik, even if Frederik wasn't a CP

I wonder if Marie Chantal would have married Pavlos if he wasnt royal.
right now she gets all the perks of royalty (tiaras, invites to royal weddings etc) without all the slog work and paparazzi attention.

I like her. (i sometimes wonder if i'm the only who does) and i think they have a happy marriage but I wonder if she could stand up to the difficulties of a royal life.

Quite all newest Crown Princesses, like Maxima, Mary, Masako from Japan and Letizia are very well-educated commoners, who had really successful carears in the past, so it must have been a bit hard for them to give it all up and started the public job of the Princess. So the only answer here is- a real LOVE...

I think it actually would have been easier for Haakon to convince Mette-Marit to marry him if he hadn't been royal. She never seemed to me as someone who craved the royal spotlight. If she had been, I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't have been living together before they married, and married earlier instead.

The only one I really doubt is MC and CP Pavlos. I think it was made very obvious that it was a very sweet deal for both sides. Not that they don't love each other (and I hope they do with 4 children), but I'm sure the marriage would never have happened if titles weren't involved.

I think Princess Claire and Prince Laurent are too private for anyone to know. Sure, they look very different from each other, but I hardly think that's grounds to speculate that their marriage is based on titles.

I'm sure Maxima would have preferred that WA was not a prince. she had to listen to people call her father a war criminal and he was not be allowed to attend her wedding. she also had to give up a highpowered career as an international banker. if that's not true love, i don't know what is.

I agree too. When CP Frederik and CP Mary had first married I heard in a few stories that Mary had started taking etiquette classes a few weeks after they met which to me says she was preparing to be seen with him. Although I think the love between them is real now I think that Mary might have been pulled in by Frederik not just by his personality but also because he was royalty. But Mary isn't a bad person. I mean who here wouldn't just love to be with a royal?

Who wouldn't have married Felipe? even if he wasn't a prince, he's awesome, I think the same about Mathilde and Mette-Marit but not about Mary or Claire

I'm sure that even if CP Philippe wasn't royal, and CP Mathilde wasn't born titled herself, that they would still have fallen in love and married. I don't know how they would have met, but I can't imagine how those two would ever suit anybody else. They seem so 'perfect' for each other. This is the only couple I can be nearly certain of.

I say a big huge fat YES for Letizia, and yes for Mette-Marit and Mathilde, and a most likely for Maxima.

Personally I don't think Mabel would have married Johan Friso if he hadn't been a Prince. Its just a feeling I get from Mabel. And I could be completely off about it, but I don't think I am.

I agree. Plus Maxima is such a sincere person and not someone who could fake feelings at all. You can really tell that she is in love with him for him. Haha and I love that thing she said about not even recognizing him when he visited her in New York. The fact that he mainly courted and chased after her (than the other way around) makes me beleive that even more.

I don't know much about the other CPs, but I'll just say yes for the sake of the romantic in me.

Yes..

say: CP Frederik is born in Denmark, but not as a CP
I think that Mary would have moved to Denmark, even if CP Frederik wasn't the CP
