The banality of this thread verges on the fantastical.

There are hundreds of active threads at any one time in the Forums. Most members work out soon enough which discussions interest them and which don't.
Posting in harmless threads one considers "banal" is a fairly pointless exercise unless the intention is to be "provocative" and/or attention-seeking.
Members are advised to step over such posts and carry on doing what you enjoy doing.

Is Princess Leonie of Saxe-Weimar-Eisenach married? (Born 1986) suitable surely if single.

At this point I don't care if William's future wife is royal or not, aristocrat or not. . . I just hope she and her family aren't manipulative, scheming, desperate social climbers that don't use the media for their personal gain.

Manipulative, scheming and desperate social climbing qualities will not be present if the wife is a genuine royal: a girl who knows how to live the lifestyle from the inside and who is born to public duty. Even relatively aristocratic girls cant be trusted to do their duty as consort. Real blue blood is needed not just 'high born'. A royal bride will know to tackle and shield ANY indiscretions at all costs. A blonde from the gentry doesnt know how to live the code.

Right....because history has shown us thru time that there have never been any scheming, manipulative social climbers who are not of the British aristocracy or royal birth.

Let's not make general statements. Not all apples are green. And let's cool it with the innuendo's regarding Kate's family.

I dont think that cd255's post should be criticised in such a manner and tone. It is a perfectly valid and reasonable general statement.

I wish we knew a little bit more about Kate. We don't seem to know much about her.

As is mine. Being royal doesn't give you class. Making comments about a family that one has never met but knows thru other people's experiences and articles in the newspapers is not a valid and reasonable statement.

I agree Nascarlucy. We don't much about Kate or her family.

Oh dear. This sounds a bit like organized crime's "omerta."

Who was the last 'real royal' to have married into the BRF? In my book it was Mary of Teck.

In mine princess Marina of Greece and Denmark.
Mary of Teck not only was before but she was from a morgantic branch of a royal family (Wurttemberg).
After Marina, there still was prince Philipp of Greece and Denmark, but on his wedding day I think he had already renounced this position. His birth however is a royal one.

Looking back to Princess Marina's generation, she was the only princess who married into the BRF. The other brides were aristocracy; and these "common" women who married the Duke of Gloucester and the Duke of York did quite well within the Royal Family and instilled those values into their children. The brides of the next generation, one an aristocrat, one gentry, didn't do nearly as well within the Royal fold over the long term; but the one middle-class woman who married in is doing just fine after some initial hiccups. So in terms of finding a "preferred wife", I'm not sure that social class is a good indicator of whether a particular lady will make a good princess or not.

The Kents wedding was an absolute media and public succes. Don't think the same for the Yorks and the Gloucester. I don't mean they were unpopular but they weren't received with the same enthusiasm, AFAIK

I think any woman who can conduct herself properly and learns the rules/protocols and regulations of the BRF and respects those rules and regulations- royal or not- is fine by me. If she can handle the pressure of being a princess and a potential queen even better. Who cares if they're blue-blooded aristocrats, daughters of millionaires or billionaires- if they care and love each other I think that's enough. The future wife of William and Harry could've been raised in homeless shelters but if she's made something of herself- teacher, doctor, financier- the people should accept that. Harry and William's friends should accept that Because she's worked hard to make a better life for herself.

But the most important quality that any woman should have when marrying into the BRF is that they LOVE William and Harry for the men that they are NOT for what they have like titles, money, jewelry, etc.

Love is secondary to producing a legitimate heir for the dynasty. They can marry a princely Baden or Schaumburg Lippe and let love - whatever that means - develop.
