They lived together for most of those 33 years.
Talk about dedication to the man you love.

Yes, it is a great and unbelievable story...I read Marta Schad's book about the Swedish Royal Family and it is written that the Swedish people admire a lot Prince Bertil and Lilian for their attitude, love and sense of duty.

The Earl of Wessex met Sophie Rhys-Jones on 9 September 1993. By the end of October 1993 they were dating. Edward's friends and family were already predicting a 1994 wedding. Some were buying hats. But no engagement came. It is guessed the Queen personally asked Edward to wait for his brother's divorces to die down. Either way whether they actually were engagement before 1998 and it was never made public is a matter for debate - as one thing after another took precedence.
They were officially engaged in November 1998, it was announced on 6 January and they were married in June 1999. So they dated for 6 years and eight months.

Oddly enough one of Prince Edward's friends told the press she attended the wedding in 1997 down in New Zealand!?

all that i could find about Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven is that they met while she was studying at the University of Lieden. which i guess is universal knowledge here.
