The Duke of Windsor was supposedly infertile due to a case of the measles he had as a teenager. In one biography of his younger brother George VI, I read that there was some relief among the "grey men" when the Duke abdicated not only because of his peculiarities, but also for this reason.

Question Royal Wedding Question

A quick question in general. I was looking at the photos of CP Fredrick and CP Mary at the recent wedding they attended. I have noticed that at other royal weddings all those that have an order of the country they are attending wear that, if they don't they wear the order of their own country. What is the protocol for a wedding such as the recent one, for a non-royal in the home country. I saw that Prince Fredrick was wearing the Order of the Elephant, as was his brother. But the Queen and CP Mary didn't wear any order. Just curious if it is a Male/Female thing?

As far as I know there is no protocol surrounding the wearing of orders at non-royal weddings. CP Fredrick probably wore his as a matter of personal choice. At royal weddings, the protocol surrounding the wearing of order varies according to country. In Denmark for example royals should wear the order of the elephant or other Danish orders if they have them, if not they wear the order of their native country. In Britain, only men, usually in uniform, wear their orders, while the women do not.

Question Selection of Spouses by the British Royals

Would someone please explain why the Royals of Belgium, Sweden, etc appear to marry other royals and the British princes and princesses seem to marry commoners? Don't they interact with the other European royals?

Until the first world war the British royals had tended to marry German royalty and nobility; since then, with that source no longer available since they'd been our enemies in the war, marriage with British nobility became usual. These days, marriage with commoners (British or foreign) seems to be overtaking marriage with nobility. I think that trend is also occurring in other European monarchies.

Zadok the Priest

Is this song, Zadok the Priest, used for all royal weddings? I know Crown Princess Mary of Denamrk had this song on when she walked up the aisle.

No. It was originally written for King George (I forget which one) by Handel.

This piece is (mainly) used for the British monarchy during the coronation of the next King or Queen of Great Britain. It is also used a hymn for the Anglican church (in fact, many choirs within the Qnglican chruch, use this piece on a daily basis...trust me, I know this work by heart. Moreover, if I had a good voice I would sing it and be the lead in my church choir.)


I found it quite unusal the the Danish wedding party decided to use this piece for their wedding march (the lyrics don't match), but whatever floats their boat.

:)

Yes, Zadok the Priest, written for King George II I believe, is one of the coronation anthems used at the coronation of British Monarchs. I believe it is sung before the anointing of the monarch or while the monarch is changing into the clothes in which he or she will be anointed. It is a beautiful hymn. It is not, however, usually sung at Royal weddings and I don't know why it was used at the Danish Crown Princely wedding.

Not European but I know that Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath attended Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding, and they together with Princess Rahma and Alaa Batyanah attended Prince Edward's.

I learned that for the Danish Royal Family, they have to have a waltz before the stroke of midnight, I think. I forgot the name of the piece, but it's such a nice one to waltz to.

I think it sometimes depends on the time of the wedding, too, in addition to the religious and cultural and social customs of each country, too, of course.

Some of the weddings that took place in the evening (with formal gala wear) within the past years each had the bridal couple sharing a dance: Frederik and Mary, Joachim and Alexandra, Haakon and Mette-Marit and Martha Louise and Ari.

While weddings that take place during the day, or perhaps have seperate civil and religious ceremonies (on seperate days as well as on the same day), the dancing might more likely take place the night before at the pre-wedding ball.

There were a few published pictures of Willem and Maxima, Constantijn and Laurentien dancing at their pre-wedding ball.

As for the cake, I've seen wedding cakes for all of the above mentioned couples with Felipe and Letizia's cake being the least traditional in the wedding sense, but perhaps common in Spain?
