Charles and Diana was good friends with ex.King Konstantine of Greece and his wife Anne- Marie. They have children that are about the same age as William and Harry. So I think they are friends...

And William and Harry are close to their cousins Zara and Peter Phhilips aswell

P. Charles had King Konstantine help him to sneak around when he got back together with Camila so I doubt they are "Friends of Diana" plus KK will do just about anything to exploit his distant cousinship with Prince Philip:( most of P. Charles's bud were not close to Diana at the most their kids were in the same schools and same social circle.

I think most of his friends are from the English Aristocracy or from old untitled families. I've never seen pics of him or his brother socialicing with princes etc from Europe

I think that the problem is a gap in a generation. Frederick, Willem-Alexander, Felipe etc are quite a few years older than William & Harry and that gulf will have widened now they are married. The same with Hamzah of Jordan who is closer to William in age but now has a wife.

I agree. When he begins to undertake offical events and begins to actually do his duties he will at least become aquaintanced with the other Royals. As of right now though, he's only interested in himself, and therefore I believe his friends are only those who are members of his social class. (Although he claims he's friends with people of all different backgrounds-I just don't see William being close chums with someone who can't run in his circles of money.)

I agree that there is a certain uncomfortable feeling that can come with associating with people outside "the wealth circle." I myself was brought up in a way where I won't have to worry about money in my life, but I chose to go to a public school (unlike my siblings who chose boarding schools), and associated with people of the middle class and what not...I took a lot of flack for coming from the background I did and unfortuanetly that is why siblings chose the paths they chose. I think it's probably hard on both sides of the coin, and I have to try and remember when I criticize William and Harry (as I did in the above post-sort of), that not only are the of enormous wealth but also unbelievable public stature and so there are so many more restrictions and questions and just general uncomfortabilities placed on them. My only problem is that William claims he wouldn't care, and maybe he wouldn't, but spending his time in the VIP section of clubs and telling "ordinary people" who are just curious to slub off doesn't seem as though he's too trusting.

I hope this post didn't make me sound like I was bragging, or anything too horrible, I was just trying to bring a little back ground to my postings and feelings.

Does anybody know if Wills and Harry have ever really met their European counterparts and if they chat with them?

I think most of the CP's attended Prince Charles' 60th birthday, I know Princess Victoria did. Some of them have made state visits.

Seeing as how neither of the boys travel with their father & stepmother or grandmother and grandfather for state visits, the only time they would is when those particular royals come to England and William and Harry are included in the festivities, which I believe most of the time they aren't. William is merely the heir of the heir and Harry is his brother, so neither represent England on these visits in the capacity their father does.

I'm sure they have met a few of them, but I don't think they speak to one another on a regular basis -- why would they?

If they had become friends in one way or another.
William and Harry share with the other Princes/ss the fact that they have titles. Only other princes/ss understand how life must be like for William and Harry, plus they share similar interests i presume. I'm sure they'd have pretty decent conversations were they to know each other.

The problem is that there are not many important royals in their age bracket, maybe that's one of the reason they are not very close them

Yes, were they to know each other. I don't think they do, aside from the rare times they are at the same functions. They might share a few words then, but I don't think Wills has Victoria's cell phone number on his phone.

Closest royals would be the swedish trio. Madeleine is the same age as William. The Casiraghi children are younger then Wills and Harry.

You never know, they might have all the royal families on speed dial.
The swedish trio, could have made numerous visits in disguises to visit the princes and to party all night.

The monaco trio are more or less the same age but they are not "royal", and they don't have a good reputation so I doubt that P.W/H would be more than acquaintances with them.

And I don't think that they have a close relationship with any european royal, the BRF has always had a distant relationship with them, so I doubt that the princes have changed that
