Royal medical conditions
 
Royals are not perfect either. There are some of them who suffer from different diseases but what kind of?

CP Al-Muhtadee Billah of Brunei has diabetes. His uncle, P. Sufri, has horrible growths on his skin. I don't know if they're cancerous or not.

A long time ago, Australian.
It came from Queen Victoria and was passed, through her daughters Alice and Beatrice to the royal families of Spain, Russia and Hesse. It is unknown wether Princess Louise was a carrier as she had no children. It was also passed by her son, Leopold, who was a haeamophiliac to Princess Alice of Athlone who had two sons who died young as a result of haemophilia. It appears to have bred itself out of the various royal families.

Constatijn of the Netherlands is allergic for peanuts.

I have read somewhere that the King of Spain is haeamophiliac, and that he got it through the Russian line. But it is a long time ago, and I don't know the source. Have others heard this, or am I way off here?

Interesting allergy! ... Just what is in the glasses then when Margrethe makes her speeches at a celebration, when she hosts heads of states or when she visits others?

Waaayyy Off!
King Juan Carlos is not a haemophiliac. It would be impossible for him to be so. His grandmother, Queen Ena had three sons, two of which had haemophilia and one who did not. It appears that non of her daughters were carriers. The Kings father, the Count of Barcelona, was born without haemophilia and so it would be impossible for his son to be a sufferer.

Thank you for clearing that up:) It is important to clear up mistakes!

I have been interested in genetics since studying it at school. The royal Haemophilia was used as an example and it has continued to fascinate me.

The link below contains some interesting information on the presence of haemophilia in Queen Victorias family

Tracing royal geneology is all fine and good, however, without a DNA examination, there is no other conclusive way of determining if one is a carrier for a disease. That's why it's so hard to determine where certain disease came from.

I'm curious to know if royals who smoke have had considerable ramifications for their children.

I think Queen Rania has diabetes, i'm not exactly certain though...

I think that she migth be having white wine in her glas insted of champange, but i donīt know. I remember a picture wher she was to a party among her and Prince Henriks friends they had a glas of champange as a drink befor the dinner but queen Margrethe did not get any champange because she was allergic to champange, so she got a martini with ice. :cool:

i think you can be perfect despite of handicap or diseases

Claire 07-01-2005 04:24 PM

I think the greatest thing the British royals suffer from would be hay fever and sinusitus. The Queen and Prince Charles have both had ops to alliviate the probelm.
I remember that one of the Duchesses (Kent or Glouchester) suffers from epilepse ( I can't spell tonight)
The other thing is probably dyslexia - it is rumoured that Prince Andrew and Prince Harry suffer from it. But only Princess Beatrice has official received treatment for the learning disorder.
I think either the Earl or Countess of Wessex might have a soap allergy, but this might just be creative reading. In 1999 BP phoned ahead to an hotel to ask them not the wash their linen in any soap products, or something like that.

Princess Astrid of Norway is allergic to seafood.
