Since I see a list of cousins as bride potentials for Prince Williams, I'm surprise Lady Gabrielle is not on the list. I personally wouldn't be in support of the cousin thing, but this is a common thing in the history royal houses anyways.

Cousins yes, but not that close...

King George V > Duke of Kent > Prince Michael > Lady Gabriella
King George V > George VI > Elizabeth II > Charles > William

Well, not that close, but there's the relationship between Princess Marina and Prince Philip as well as the descent through George V and Queen Mary.

Commoner only in the British sense of the word, while in the Germanic countries as well as France the daughter of an aristocrat is an aristocrat herself. Thus, Lady Elizabeth would be considered in most countries as being an aristocrat. Same for Lady Diana Spencer. I guess we have yet to see a real commoner on the throne (Camilla Shand comes to mind who is only the daughter of an aristocrat in the continental sense, as her grandfather was a Baron).

... which is the perfect lead-in for:

King George I of Greece > Nicholas > Marina > Michael > Gabriella
King George I of Greece > Andrew > Philip > Charles > William

In this line of descent Prince William and Lady Gabriella Windsor are generational equals, both being great-great grandchildren of George I of Greece.

Through George V of the UK they are second cousins, once removed, and through George I of Greece they are third cousins. Messy, maybe, but I don't think they are legally too closely related to marry if they were of a mind to, though of course Princess M's gloating would be a bit off-putting.

Princess M as mother to the Queen would be brilliant. Her influence over William would save the monarchy. Princess Michael knows just how to do things.

Well, she did impress Frederick Forsyth. In his book "Icon" he elevates her birth rank to "countess" and even makes her the empress of all Russians....

I must confess, I do think she's absolutely brilliant. I can just imagine her in her role as "Queen Consort Mother". We'd see the full extent of the Royal Vaults then!

Drama is a good thing when it comes to royal houses.

I'm loving Princess Charlotte of Monaco (I'm not sure if that's the proper way to style her so my apologies in advance) for Prince Harry. I think they would make a lovely couple and have really beautiful babies. Anyone else agree?

Quite a few, Vita. By my count there are close to 50 posts in this thread discussing Charlotte Casiraghi as a suitable (or unsuitable) match for young Harry.

Well, I think her sharp tongue will embarrase her son-in-law more then once. Remember the remark 'go back to the colonies'? Or her russian lover? Furthermore I fail to see from what the British monarchy has to be saved, as they seem to be back on track after the horrid 90-ties.
But indeed, even dispite Princess Michael I think that Lady Gabriella would be a lovely wife for William, though Theodora is still my number one.

I would love that! But I don't think they've ever even met. I would love to see a picture of them together.

I'd like to see Prince William marry Princess Madeliene of Sweden and Prince Harry marry Charlotte Casiraghi.

Well there's common and then there's common. The super wealthy in Europe are raised in much the same way as the royals and nobility that if Prince William were to marry a girl like that it wouldn't be much of a stretch to imagine. Besides, haven't we had enough of the in-breeding?

Actually it would make me happy to see William marry Charlotte rather than Harry. She would certainly give some much needed modern elegance to the BRF and make a gorgeous Queen. I think Madeleine would be good to tame Harry. I get the feeling Madeleine might have a strength that belies her fashionable appearance.

True, but I just love Kate. She seems appropriate and fresh. And since Wills is involved with her I don't feel right speculating about other chicks for him. LOL. But what the heck...I like Madeline. A Swedish princess cum English Rose would be kind of cool.

Mine are all older, (perhaps he might like an older woman), no.... I wouldn't want the envy we see, directed at them, anyway they don't 'fancy' him!
