I don't fancy him but I'd go along with it for the tiara.

Perhaps a nice size one to start with because you know your going to be getting free reign of that vault someday.

Wouldn't it cause some kind of crisis for William or maybe even Harry to marry Charlotte Casaraghi? I thought heirs to the British Throne couldn't marry someone of the Catholic faith without having to give up the their right to the throne.?
I think Kate Middleton seems like a great choice myself.

Yes, if either William or Harry married a Catholic, it would mean stepping out of the line of succession. Not sure if they'd have to be a Catholic at the time of the wedding for that to be the case or to have been baptised Catholic regardless of what they did about their religion in the meantime.

Thanks that's what I thought. I did also wonder if Charlotte(just for an example) left the Catholic church in favor or The Church of England if then it would not affect the line of succession.In Charlotte's case it's all accedemic I hink since I don't see her marrying William or Harry.

I would imagine we will see the end of the monarch as head of the C of E with Prince Charles, and after that the "Catholic bar" could be safely removed.

The Act of Settlement states "or shall marry a papist" as a bar to inheriting the Crown. So if the intended spouse converted from Roman Catholicism the day before the wedding, it would be acceptable under the law.

Thanks I wondered if it would mak a difference or not sometimes such late connversions are suspected but if it was clealy staed otherwise I guess that would settle the matter.

If I had my way, I'd have William marry Madeleine. Just because I'd love to see a marriage between blood royals of two foreign houses. When was the last time that even happened? That and Queen Madeleine just sounds perfect.

Between two reigning houses last happened in 1981 with the marriage of Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg and Prince Nicolaus of Liechtenstein.
Marriages of members of former reigning houses happen more frequently, the last one I recall this quickly was the marriage of Archduke Paul-Georg of Austria and Duchess Eilika of Oldenburg in the late nineties.

It also happened with Caroline of Monaco and Ernst August of Hanover (not reigning of course).

Oh yes, that is true. It's just fun to fantasize about it. I am sure that he'll marry a commoner, even if it's not Kate. Poor thing, I wouldn't want that job for sure, but I guess if she loves Wills, she'll do what she has to do...

I thought that William and Victoria weren't allowed to marry each other because they were the "next" in line for the throne. I heard somewhere that one of them has to give up their title, but both seem certain that they do want to in fact be king/queen of their own perspective country one day. I think that both of them do have good head on their shoulders and would do an excellent job at it. and isn't William wiht Kate anyway???

They are allowed to marry each other. But indeed it is 'undesirable' in our modern era that husband and wife are head-of-state of two countries at the same time. Prince William could become Prince of Sweden and leave the throne to his brother Prince Henry ('Harry'). Or Crown Princess Victoria could become Princess William of Wales and leave the throne to her brother Prince Carl-Philip (again).

They do not need to give up their title:

William goes to Sweden:
HKH Victoria, Sveriges Kronprinsessa, Prinsessa av Storbritannien och Nordirland, Hertiginna av Västergötland
HKH Vilhelm, Sveriges Prins, Prins av Storbritannien och Nordirland

Victoria goes to the United Kingdom:
HRH Prince William of Wales
HRH Princess William of Wales, Princess of Sweden, Duchess of Västergötland

I was under the assumption that if William married a commoner [one without a royal title] she would be HRH Princess William of Wales. If he were to marry someone of the blood royal, she would be HRH *her name* of Wales. So wouldn't Victoria, if for some reason she married William, be HRH Princess Victoria of Wales?

Victoria is a princess on her own so it that case she wouldn't be called princess william.

I don't know.... she is a princess of the blood in Sweden. If she married Prince William (I agree, not likely, won't happen, but hypothetically speaking) she would take his name as the wife of a Prince of the United Kingdom. She would be HRH PRincess Victoria of Sweden and Princess William of Wales.
But I don't think you can say "Princess Victoria of Wales", since the Wales part is William's title.

The woman takes the style of the man, even if she's a blood princess, right? Queen Alexandra was HRH Princess Alexandra of Denmark, but when she married Prince Edward, she was HRH Princess Alexandra, Princess of Wales.
