I'm not sure I'd classify her as "euro-trash", after all, her grandfather was Prince Rainier, and unless Albert gets married and has children, her mother is the next ruler of Monaco---so....not Euro-trash.
But, while she is without question beautiful--I think that she's a touch pouty, petulant, etc.. and seems to party a lot. I think she would not be happy as a Queen and most likely would not enjoy it.

Charlotte´s out of our fantasy then, two pouty people on the throne would be too much. Has Princess Mathilde any sisters hidden away, oh dear the Act again. but then it is fantasy...

The British press seems to always take the snooty route when they talk about Grimaldis. Maybe they are somewhat jealous of all that sun and fun down in Monaco.

I once heard or read (many moons ago . . . . OK more like 15 to 20 years ago) that the overall attitude of European Royalty towards the BRF was somewhat chilly. This when Princess Diana was the bright and shining icon of fashion, the stuff dreams were made of, her star was in the ascent and the overall opinion of the various royal families was not favourable.

Monaco's royals were known to consider Diana (and most of the rest of the BRF) ill bred, ill educated, and unremarkable. Although one has to remember that the Grimaldis, and most of the other royal houses were and still are, multi-lingual, university educated, cosmopolitan, politically astute leaders. They also considered themselves a cut above the BRF in that their heirs were royal or noble born. Oh that they had known what lay in store for them.

Notwithstanding the above, the BRF is still ill educated and definitely not multi-lingual. That being said, an alliance between William or Harry and someone like Charlotte is unimagineable. She is a ravishing sophisticate. William and Harry most definitely are not!

There is only one problem with that theory and that is that the Monaco family are not royal. Now that Princess Caroline´s third husband is a royal then by marriage so is she and her little youngest daughter, none of the other members of the family are royal.

I said noble or royal. Since the Grimaldi's are the offspring of Prince Ranier, was he not royal? Is Prince Albert not a member of the royal family of Monaco?

I had noticed a distinct thawing in Princess (not royal?) Caroline. I attributed this to her husband's well known and obvious love and deep respect for his cousin Queen Elizabeth.

The simple answer to all these questions - is no, they are not royal. Rainier was not royal. There is no royal family of Monaco, there is a ruling prince. They have the style of Serene Highnesses except for Caroline who now has HRH because of her husband....
Sorry, not royal any of them.

Given the current crop of Crown Princesses, Charlotte Casiraghi will be the perfect choice. However, I agree with Marg noting that union between Prince William/Henri and her is not likely to work because of big differences in up-bringing and life experiences.

I had forgotten in this fantasy bride thread the very lovely Princess Theodora of Greece, a beautiful young lady and not that closely related.

Lauren Bush or Amanda Heart would be interesting with William.

What a comprehensive list, CT!

I think it's interesting that there's a "Lady Katherine Howard" listed there - I'd think anyone with that name would want to avoid becoming Queen of England at all costs. It didn't work out too well for the last Katherine Howard! :)

^ Yeah, seriously.... it is probably an inside joke among the Howards/Norfolks.
She was one of the girls listed on this page: <<wills world>>

Given the list provided by CasiraghiTrio, I have to say that Prince William and Prince Henri have got many wonderful candidates to choose from. Lady Rosanagh, Viscountess Grimston nee Ines-Kerr could have been a great choice. The list of Princesses looks great as well. In my opinion, which is based solely on the photos, I would say that Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis would suit Prince William better than Princess Maria Teresia.

There were a lot of Roman Catholics in that list, but as we said it is pure fantasy.

Great list! Thank you so much.

My favourite would be Lady Edwina Grosvenor ... the first godchild of Diana

I edited the list a little bit, noting the Catholics, and adding a list for "rumored crushes"

If anyone thinks of people to add, speak up. I honestly couldn't remember others, but I know there are others ...............

I'm pretty sure the Thurn princesses are Catholic, and that the Howard girls are catholic seems certain but let me know if I'm wrong, please.

CT, Lady Rosanaugh Innes-Ker married this June or was it july? Well either way I doubt she should be on the list

The Thurn princesses are definitely Roman Catholic and the Howards too.
Never mind, it is a fantasy thread....

Yeah, I just figured it was worth noting who is Catholic. I figured the Howards must be Catholic because of the Duke of Norfolk, who I presume is their dad or brother? but wanted outside confirmation.

So I made a list for Former Contenders who Are no longer contenders because they married other people. LOL
Did someone say to those girls, "You coulda been a contender!" ?
