2. Letizia married felipe?
3. Mary married fred?
4. Mette marit married Haakon?
5. Daniel married Victoria?
6. Maxima married WA?
7. Mathilde married philippe?
8. Stephanie married guillaume?
9. Charlene married albert?
10. Marie married Joachim?
11. Masako married naruhito?
12. Salma married mohammed?
13. Marie Chantal married pavlos?
14. Iñaki married cristina?
15. Chris married Madeleine?
16. Sophia marrid carl phillip? (when she does next year?)
17. Ari behn married Martha?
18. Maria Teresa married henri?
19. Claire married felix of Luxembourg?
20. Tessy married Louis of Luxembourg?


What are your thoughts?

my thoughts...

1. Kate have married William had he not been royal? No..
2. Letizia married felipe? possibly, had they both been professionally successful
3. Mary married fred? No..
4. Mette marit married Haakon? Totally
5. Daniel married Victoria? Totally
6. Maxima married WA? possibly, had they both been professionally successful
7. Mathilde married philippe? and 8. Stephanie married guillaume? I don't think either of these ladies were too concerned by the title or the fame. they were already aristocrats in their own right so on that note, i will say yes.
9. Charlene married albert? I don't know much about them enough to have an opinion...
10. Marie married Joachim? I don't know much about them enough to have an opinion...
11. Masako married naruhito? totally.
12. Salma married mohammed? Not sure.
13. Marie Chantal married pavlos? No.
14. Iñaki married cristina? No.
15. Chris married Madeleine? I don't think Chris cares about the title (which he demonstrated) but I doubt he would have married someone with no status
16. Sophia married carl phillip? (when she does next year?) Maybe, don't know much about them
17. Ari behn married Martha? Yes
18. Maria Teresa married henri? Yes
19. Claire married felix of Luxembourg? Yes
20. Tessy married Louis of Luxembourg? Totally...

imo especially Daniel and Masako seem to have overcome a lot before or in their marriage, so I'd say they are now married "despite" their respective partner being royal...

Charlene & Albert: I think they are not a bad match, but I'm not so sure Albert would have been the marrying kind, had it not been for the fact that an heir-in-wedlock needed to be born (imo ofcourse)

To keep things short and sweet, I think other than those royal couples that have had an arranged marriage, they would have married regardless of status and/or wealth.

Marie Chantel's father is a billionaire. Pavlos is a prince without a kingdom. Who married up? Him or her ?

I don't think it's right to say some of the royal ladies would not have married their husbands had they not been royals.

Are you calling them money diggers? Or title diggers? Do you think that's right? Who are we to judge? Would you like to be judged in such a disrespectful way?

That's a good question. She had money. He had the title. It was a perfect match. In any case, I think they love each other.

My opinion is that this thread is not worth the effort. It promotes the negative, as in " I dont like x so I'll say she only married him cos he was royal" and obviously vice versa.

This used to be a forum where we learnt about royal history and protocol; history of royal regalia etc. this is really complete rubbish IMO and does nothing for this site.

Although for some it may be good entertainment to speculate on the "what ifs" of a couple's relationship, the more topics that are like this and seemingly resemble a "gossip site" or a "dirt rag", the more the reputation of The Royal Forums as being a trusted site for royal history, information and news is set up to go down the drain.

I'm in a chatty mood today but for the most part, I do tend to ignore topics such like this and "who's the prettiest royal with blond hair and blue eyes" and "who's pregnant in the celebrity circle and all of the fashion, hair, skin, shoes, toothpaste kind of fluff. I imagine that's why there's a separate area for these type of things.

I suppose its all in what floats your boat and tickles your fancy.

I understand what they mean. I'm a monarchist, attend the TRF to learn news of royalty and to learn more about the history of monarchies. But I like to peek into these discussions and sometimes comment.

He did. She wanted prestige or her family did. He is a Crown Prince to nothing he will ever reign.

I'm afraid the reputation of TRF as a place where we could learn and discuss about all those things started to go down the drain from the moment its threads started to be inundated with members who do nothing else that praise their "saint" royals and are not willing to have discussion about them, labelling all those who are as «haters», «jealous», etc.

I think the discussion "would they have married" can be much more than the usual "I don't like her". It can actually be an interesting one.

That's the point. In terms of money, he married up. In terms of status, she did.

He may never reign but he has a title, which brings status and invitations to all those royal events.

The Royal family of Greece is still important in European royalty, and has connections with the most important European royal families.
