THE ROYAL FORUMS NEWSLETTER


In May we celebrate two first-year wedding anniversaries, Frederik and Mary of Denmark and Felipe and Letizia of Spain. Throughout the year, we watched each couple work together, laugh together and grow together. We witnessed the deepening bonds of love and friendship bring two individuals closer together as a couple. The two Princes, we knew well, but the young Princesses were enigmas. They soon surprised us with their intelligence, poise, maturity and beauty like two beautiful butterflies emerging from their cocoons.

Though some people believe these princesses live fairy-tale lives, we know otherwise. It takes hard work and discipline being crown princesses (crown princes too), but their rewards can be infinite. Happy anniversary to both couples.

ROYAL QUICK HITS


April 25 officially marked a baby boom amongst the European royal houses with not one, but two official announcements of great expectations from the Danish and Norwegian royal courts. In Denmark, just a few weeks shy of their first wedding anniversary, it was announced that Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary would be expecting their first child in October. For the official announcement and discussions of this news, visit http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5771&page=1.

Crown Princess Mary’s first official act since the announcement will take place May 5. No doubt we can expect a belly shot or two, which can be viewed here in the Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary sub-forum: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=32. Possible baby names for the little prince or princess who will be second in line to the Danish throne can be made here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2374&page=1. From the Norwegian court, it was announced that Crown Prince Haakon, who is acting as regent at present while his father recuperates from heart surgery, and his wife Crown Princess Mette-Marit are expecting their second child this December. Some changes have been made to Crown Princess Mette-Marit’s schedule as she is experiencing a difficult first trimester. The official announcement and discussions about the baby can be found here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5773&page=1. Cast your vote for whether Marius and Princess Ingrid Alexandra will become a big brother and big sister to a baby boy or girl at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5775, as well as make suggestions for possible names for the new baby.

Both the Danish and Norwegian Crown Princess pregnancies, as well as the Crown Princess pregnancies in Belgium and Denmark, mean lots of glamorous maternity wear. To see royal maternity fashion past and present, visit http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=341&page=1.

With all the royal births on the horizon, most of the present Kings and Queens (and King and Queen consorts) are now grandparents. To mark this special relationship between (royal) grandparents and their grandchildren, please visit http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=205330#post205330.


This month we also mark five wedding anniversaries:

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia of Spain mark 43 years of wedded bliss; to see pictures and for information on their wedding, visit http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155&highlight=juan+carlos.


Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands mark four years of holy matrimony; you can learn more about their wedding here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=125&page=1.

Princess Martha Louise and Ari Behn of Norway, who became new parents for the second time last month, ring in three years of matrimonial bliss; you can see more of their wedding festivities at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163&page=1.

First time parents to be this fall, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary, celebrate their first anniversary with not only wedded joy but also baby joy; you can re-live the Danish Crown Princely pre-wedding festivities at this thread: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2212&page=1, and the wedding itself at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2280&page=1.

The Prince and Princess of Asturias also mark their first anniversary together, a year which has been marked with numerous trips abroad and a busy schedule of royal engagements within Spain; the couple’s pre-wedding festivities can be seen at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5466&page=1, while their wedding can be seen here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1997&page=1.


April 30 marks a very special day for the Dutch royal family and the Dutch people: It was 25 years ago on this day that then Princess Beatrix succeeded her mother Queen Juliana as Queen of the Netherlands. A special thread to mark Queen Beatrix’s Silver Jubilee can be found at http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2409&page=1.
