However in some countries several people hold the same title at any one time, for example in Luxembourg the main royals hold the title Prince/ Princess of Luxembourg, their children hold the title Prince of Nassau and then all of their children hold the title Count of Nassau, that means all of their children not just one. Likewise in The Netherlands the children of the Queens younger two sons all hold the title Count/ Countess of Orange-Nassau at the same time.
It seems different countries have different rules about how many people hold titles at the same time but I've only noticed it really with the title count/ countess
Thanks a million, tommy100. You explained that perfectly for me.

Yes, living next door to the UK, I would be more in tune with the idea of one Count, Duke, Earl etc. of X. That was why I found the notion of more than one at the same time as unusual.

If they do marry? I don't see an Engagement coming this year?

But if they do marry will her title be PRINCESS or DUCHESS?

Or would a different NEW Title be available?

HRH etc.

Quote "Monarchies are in their very nature conservative institutions adhering to conservative and traditional values.

Having a princess who has appeared in reality shows is also a big minus."

I fully agree!
Pictures or videos in large numbers about a controversial life part is the worst situation for celebrities. If we compare the cases of Carla or Sofia, I find the situation much worse for Sofia. There are only a few pics of Carla naked, and can be seen as involving some artistic features. While if you type the name of Sofia in full on Youtube, you get a dozen of videos, each more provocative than the other.
Carla has a recognized international career as a top model working for leading fashion designers, and had no need at all to marry the president to ensure her subsistence. Nothing similar for Sofia.

These pix make me wonder, if she does marry CP, will the couriers or whoever make her get her teeth fixed.

I think her teeth are really cute actually. The slight imperfection makes her good looks approachable.

I don't understand! What has her marrying CP got to do with getting her teeth "picket fenced"? Actually, I don't understand the American fixation with teeth at all!

It's news to me that there has ever been a lack of approachability to Miss Hellqvist's looks...

I don't find them cute but there are certainly worse teeth out there in the world. The teeth she already has work for her. No need to change them.

I somehow get the feeling that Prince Carl Philip & Sofia Hellqvist are going to walk down the isle in the not too distant future.

Well, her fans at the Swedish gossip magazines have been campaigning hard enough for it. Let's hope they will get married as soon as possible, just to get it over with. No need to strech this painful exersize any longer.

I will consider her royal status as a joke, though sadly the joke will be on us. How on earth can we take this whole thing seriously when such a woman, who seems to have no credentials at all, who has been white washing her past so actively (and with a lot of help) and who has spent the last decade to become a 'celeb' will be seen as an asset to the nation? The whole thing just shows that for many a monarchy is nothing more than an expensive real life soap.

I have to confess having exactly the same feelings concerning the situation. The daily overly-sweet articles are really getting on my nerves and while I do think Carl Philip must marry whoever he loves, Sofia's royal status and potential role as a representative of Sweden is off putting.

I have read once that British tent to say that having monarchy is the cheapest and the most entertainment soap opera, it only coat less that pound. I think that they have right, monarchy is not the same as decades ago.

seriously?? she poses in a bikini with a snake and everyone screams whore but prince harry is running around las vegas naked with strippers totally embarrassing the BRF and the queen .and he is viewed as a rascal gets his hair tossed and is told to run along and be a good boy.

i just dont get the irrational dislike of this poor girl by some on here yes she posed for some questionable pictures 7 years ago. she is not doing it now and making a fool out of herself like prince harry
