I voted no,because none of the poplular princesses i know are royal born,but of course I think there's a diffrence between a princess from a notable family and one from a low class family or with a bad history

Josefine 03-15-2005 04:50 PM

well, I certainly belive that a someone who becomes a royal after marriage is often more scrutinized and perhaps needs to prove herself, for the lack of a better word, worthy. But if she makes an error people still might be forgiving, not so I believe with a born princess, for with a born princess people expect she'll know what she's doing by now, but with a married princess they might be forgiving and think that okay it's still a little new to her...I think it just depends

I said no because of Letizia and Mary who, as you said, are very popular. Diana wasn't a commoner but she wasn't princess born either and everyone loved (and loves) her.

I don't know if the question has been asked and answered but has there ever been a situation where a princess born was not accepted or very unpopular?:confused:

hillary_nugent 03-31-2005 11:07 PM

I voted yes. While MAry and Letezia prove to be very popular right now at first there was alot of criticism against them and it took a while before many people accepted them and liked them.

I think royal-born princesses are more accepted, but the princesses who marry into a family are more popular despite the heavy criticism they face initally. I think part of the popularity is from the whole "fairy-tale" aspect of these women's lives and relationships with their princes, and the fact they were commoners (or at least not princesses) beforehand makes them more appealing in a way to the public.

that is a very good point these is a difference in more accepted and more popular

I feel that royals should marry royals because I find it difficult to accepted say a person who is on the same level as me. But if your prove to people that your more than just the title I feel that you will be more accepted and popular, and even become more idolised than a member of a royal house.

wanderer 08-23-2005 02:36 PM

I vote yes, my reasons are the same as other members who voted 'yes'.

Yes there are. Princess Alix of Hesse und bei Rhine when she married Tsar Nicholas II. She was never liked, nor accepted.

Not forgetting Vicky, Empress Frederick, Queen Victoria's eldest daughter who was the mother of Kaiser Wilhelm. She disliked the Prussian Court, Prussian militarism, and the Prussian "attitude", and didn't hold back letting people know. Unsurprisingly, the Prussians never quite took to her.

I voted yes.
I don't think Marie-Chantal of Greece is at all liked by the Greek people but then neither is the family she married into.

She may have been born a commoner but since the family is not liked in Greece, how do we know what the public thinks of her in particular?

Does anyone know if she is liked by the royal circles in Europe?

It would be interesting to know what they really think of her, and whether her birth has anything to do with it.:confused:

Henrietta Maria, Consort to Charles I of England

.

Let us also remember Henrietta Maria, wife of Charles I. A Catholic Princess from France, Henrietta refused to change her religion and was charged by the Pope to bring England back to the Catholic fold. She had an elaborate private chapel built for her mass services.

She tried to convert all her children to Catholicism and broke with her son Henry because he wouldn't convert under his brother Charles' orders. Henry died without ever seeing his mother again. She refused to see him, even when he was on his deathbed.

She meddled quite extensively in foreign affairs also. The people never liked or accepted her either. She kept meddling when her son, Charles II came back in 1660!

I voted yes. i think it´s a matter of trustworth.
We don´t know almost nothing about non-born-royal.We don´t know what intentions they have. They need to show why they´ll be the future Queen. They´re the most populars, but the most criticize too.
While we´ve seen born-royal princess since they birth. They are raised as royals, know the protocol, how being a royal, the press. We know lots of things about hers. Most of them aren´t popular but they´re accepted.

I do believe royal-born princesses are cut more slack in many ways. They are more accepted and most of the time, they are not chased as much by the photographers than a new princess. I think the popularity situation will be different in Sweden though with Victoria being the Crownprincess. IF she marries Daniel, I don't think a fairytale image will come to mind...I think Carl Philip's future wife (hopefully Emma) will be the one who has to deal with all the fairytale princess stuff but probably not as big as Mary and Letizia.

wow there seems to be a slam dunk in this poll
