From what I read, Mary had to sign a document stating that if there is a divorce, she does not get custody of her children--they belong the country of Denmark.

I also heard she had to do what Diana, Princess of Wales did--submit to a gynecological exam to see if she could bear children.

I read that too. I also read that in the case of a divorce, she only gets something like 10% of Frederik's money. I suppose she couldn't very well get half of everything that Frederik owns; it would be worth millions.

Does anyone know why they got married on a Friday? Was it their choice or was there a special reason for it?

Sara, you totally misread what I wrote and meant. Before Diana married Charles, she had to have a gynecological exam to prove she could have children. If she couldn&#39;t, she could not marry Charles&#33;

Considering how hard it is to figure out why a woman can&#39;t conceive even after trying for years, I don&#39;t see what good a premarital gynaecological exam would really do. It would probably only show the most obvious problems. And considering that the like of succession in the British royal family isn&#39;t limited in the way it is in some other countries and Princess Anne already had children, it seems really strange that it&#39;d be made a condition of a marriage. I wonder if they&#39;d stop the Prince of Wales from marrying if he were infertile, simply because there&#39;d be no heirs and hence no point in getting married.

Weird.

questions about royal weddings

When a royal is invited to a royal wedding in another country are they told what to wear? At some weddings you see the ladies in long dresses and tiara and at others in short dress and hat. Who decides what should be worn?

Micas is right. I&#39;m also under the impression that it is mentioned in the invitation.

Short answer, yes. The royal world is old fashioned in this regards, and certain instructions go out that ..... I believe are more tailored to what the man should wear: uniform, smoking coat, morning coat, tails and so on. Women -- the wonderful creatures they are -- have a evolved a style that compliments the gentleman&#39;s "uniform".

I would also imagine that what you wear would be dictated by the time frame of the wedding- if you&#39;re having a morning or afternoon wedding, as Felipe and Letizia did, it certainly wouldn&#39;t look right to parade around in an evening dress and tiara, so you would wear a pretty suit and a hat. However, for evening weddings like Frederik and Mary&#39;s, the standard attire was evening gown and tiara.

Doesn&#39;t it depend on when the wedding takes place? If it&#39;s a morning wedding, ladies wear something short and a hat, if it&#39;s an afternoon wedding, ladies wear something long and a tiara. For the men it doesn&#39;t really matter, I think.

Well, we don't know the exact answer!

But we do know that in Denmark, the Danish singer Lene Siel sang afterwards.....she's kinda one of Denmark greatest female singers and so, very normal style(not pop, not the opposite either...)!

Now I've never thought about that from that point of view. What would a royal family do if the male heir to the throne is infertile? I doubt he would be passed over for rule. I guess that the children of the next in line heir would become heir to the throne or that next child in line would sit on the throne next.

And what if the only remainig heir is female and she is infertile?
