Anyway, it would be nice if William would attend Victoria's wedding. But I doubt it, as well.

I think that until he is not crown prince or married he will not attend this type of affairs.

Returning to the original topic:
I think the friends circle of William & Harry really is the people of high society (of London) and British nobility with whom they grew up, at least that's what I hear. But I remember William & Harry talking about their TRUE, REAL friends of them are not who the media reports, so ...

But I think this can change when they have titles and OFFICIALLY start traveling.

What a laugh: the Casiraghis royalty!? Monaco is a princely house, it's reigning prince is not strictly independent nor sovereign.

The Princess of Hanover is styled HRH by virtue of her marriage; she is by this marriage a member of the old royal family (as Queen Mary refered to it) of Great Britain. Indeed if salic law had prevailed in Great Britain, Caroline Grimaldi would have been the present queen consort. Strangely enough Queen Victoria had a soft spot for the princely Grimaldis and often gave them presedence over foreign royals. What she would have made of their present life style is open to conjecture.

They seem to have no contact with the fashionable jet set crowd that the someone like Charlotte Casiraghi reigns over. I'm surprised even Beatrice and Eugenie are out of it as well...

Okay we've been throught the Monaco royal topic. And it's been discussing and dropped.

The reason the don't hang around with the so called fashionable jetset (don't know who you goes into such a group however) is because they aren't. They are royalty.
Beatrice and Eugenie have there own friends, some of whom are fairly fashionable and fairly wealthy.
This topic is about the contacts they have will foreign royals.

I think it has more to do with them just not fitting in with that crowd. Nevertheless, it makes sense for the lack of royals friendships as well, it's 2010 not 1910, they have a wider circle to mingle in for some normalcy.

So it's official, William and Harry will NOT be at Victoria's wedding: a visit to Botswana and Lesotho was announced for the princes from 11 to 19 June

This was always known that they would most likely not attend.
I don't think they will attend a wedding until there own or possible Alberts depending on when he marries.

I've always thought too that they wouldn't attend. But then the media began speculating that they would. The thing is, I've never seen them attend a foreign royal wedding. You could tell me if they have, but I've not seen them attend a wedding like that ever.

They haven't attended a wedding of foreign royals ever. And until they have finished traning I doubt they will.
They don't seem to be particularly close to any royals, and to be asked would be out of curtesy. Even if the World Cup wasn't on, I doubt they would go to the wedding.
I didn't read any stories about William and Harry attending the royal wedding.

I don't see them going to foreign royal events until their father is king, really. Until then, it'll be the Queen's immediate family or her cousins. Then the next generation down.

I agree.

I think we must remember that Victoria is the child of the sovereign so the British monarch should send an equivalent person to the wedding - one or more of her children.

It's a shame if William isn't acquainted with them as I think he could benefit from it since they all have the common factor of being a royal. Who else can really understand what it's like to be a royal except another royal? They could all be a great support system for each other.


I couldn't agree with you more...William also needs to socialize more with other royals so that he could also get some perspective on how it is to be an heir and royal. I think he should reach out to them as well. If they seem from the other generation, there is still Guilliame from Luxemborg who is closer to him in age.

I think William gets enough perspective from his father, Prince Charles. He isn't new to the game. He was born royal after all.

I would think that royals would associate with royals to a certain degree. I wouldn't expect all their friends or associates to be royal, but I think they could be a good support system to them. I'm surprised that some of them don't at all. If they didn't as children, then they probably won't later in their life.

An heir to the throne can understand someone else in the same situation. Their siblings or their partner doesn't totally understand this. Perhaps because they are men (men don't really discuss these things), this is why they dont' reach out to each other. If there were more women who were heirs to the throne, I think you might have a network or support system or more likely to have one than males have.

I wonder if jealousy or some other petty things over the centuries or years has caused this disconnection with each other.

It is more that the British don't have this connection. The others do but the British, since WWI, have looked to Britain for their connections and not the Europeans. With Philip's own relatives there was a chance for greater public connection but if it didn't happen then it won't be happening now.

You wonder if someone or some incident happened during World War II to cause this disconnect. Could it be something that some royal household did or said something which could have caused this disconnection? Perhaps a betrayal or something very serious happened which caused this. Something perhaps the public isn't privy to. World War II caused a lot of royal divisons.
