For years I couldn't believe that princess Caroline baptized her daughter in the Lutheran church. For what? For her daughter being in the line to the British throne? What a nonsense!

No, she was baptised in the Lutheran church because her father is head of the House of Hanover and that is their religion not because she was in the line of succession to a throne she would never inherit. I think Caroline needs to be given bit more credit.

Right? They always think Caroline is so thirsty for a throne

How do we know that Prince Ernst-August, as her husband and the Head of the House of Hanover, did not insist that the child be baptized in his familys' religion and Caroline acquiesced in the name of marital harmony?

Absolutely. Alexandra was born in Austria and not in Monaco and baptized as per her father's faith. I find this normal. At this period I d remember Caroline used to participate with her husband in many events related to his rank in German countryside also.
Alexandra is the daughter of Caroline but mainly the daughter of a royal highness head of house and royal highness herself so some thinks she follows her father's line

The most important part of this is that Alexandra apparently found the right way for her to express her faith. Good for her.

Legislation that simply excluded non-Protestants from the throne would ensure that the British monarch is Protestant. That is, however, not what the British Act of Settlement does.

Well, that's because of the history that goes with the start of the Church of England and various British monarchs from Tudors and Stuart's onwards.

It is what it is - Alexandra has made a choice of faith not an act of protest against the inheritance laws for a throne she was never going to get anywhere near - or whatever the original poster's vulgar expression meant.

Couldn't agree more and still at such a young age.

I am surprised to find such an expression on this forum. And agree that Alexandra has chosen to become a Catholic, now that she's old enough to choose for herself...

For me it is very funny when people discuss about Alexandra's rights to the British throne. In order matter to have a valid sense it should at least occur the plegue - black death to destroy the whole British family plus he extended members.

I wonder how Apexandra spends her time. Obviously, she is not a student any more. Does she live in Monaco?

I read somewhere that she is at university in the US but I can't remember where and I haven't seen anything else referring to that.

Excellent point!

Alexandra is like many, old and young who were baptized under one faith and spent a lot of time growing up in another...and once they reach a certain point in their faith, decide that the latter church was more an expression of their faith than their baptismal one. It happens all the time.

Up until her conversion to Catholicism I believe the Princess was unique being the only non Catholic in the the line of succession to the Monegasque throne.

Indeed she was. And as slim as her chances are of ever becoming Sovereign Princess of Monaco she has a better chance there than in Britain!
