I know there's a thread like this somewhere for us members ourselves, but what about for the royals? Does anyone know what any of them like to read?

Well, Maura i know P. Caroline reads Stefan Zweig. As a matter of fact, she turned one of his books, " Twenty four hours in the life of a woman ", into a ballet piece that was performed in 1985 by Les Ballets de Montecarlo

Oh, Dierna23, I'm happy to have heard that one of Princess Michael's favourite authors is Dostoevsky, he is one of my beloved authors!!!

where are these nightclubs and which royals go there? :)
The important thing is not to be bitter over life's dissapointments.Learn to let go of the past and recognise that every day won't be sunny.But when you find yourself in the darkness of despare,rememmber that it is only in the black of night you can see stars,and those stars will lead you home!So don't be afraid to make mistakes,to stumble and fall,cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most!!! :)

Europe's royals as climate activists / Reportage - Europe's royals as climate activists

The Danish royal family, like royal families across Europe, has taken up the cause of environmental education and action with great conviction. Usually it is not sitting monarchs but heirs to the throne who have become involved, but involved they certainly are. Last year, the three heirs to Scandinavian thrones – Queen Margrethe’s son Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway – travelled to Greenland together to witness for themselves the effects of climate change.

European royals hold dinners, convene meetings of business leaders, open conferences, hold photo sessions in picturesque regions, set up foundations and make speeches urging planetary preservation. What’s more, their efforts are having some effect. Scores of businesses, cajoled by royals, have signed up to take action on greenhouse gas emissions, and environmental issues have made their way into some unlikely places, including the celebrity-filled pages of Heat and Hello! When any of the current generation of heirs ascends the throne, we can expect their gown to be – metaphorically at least – trimmed in green rather than ermine.

Royal Travel Passport and Visa

In one of my higher education class, a professor told us that the RC Pope don't need travel passport and visa. What about the members of the Royal families? Since they travel a lot. Do they need travel passport and visa? whose surnames are they using in filing up important official documents like visa and passport?

The Danish Royal Family has passports. I am not sure if they have two different sets, as they use Diplomatic passports on official travels? I am not sure if you need a visum if you have a dilomatic passport, or if you need one, it might be granted without a lot of hustle?

I don't know how long she would have been able to use that passport. Generally, it has to be altered/updated when anything is changed.

FYI, as a British passport is issued in the name of Her Majesty, it is unnecessary for The Queen to possess one. All other members of the Royal Family, including The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales, have passports.

The Queen didn't have to have a passport in the past, but I read somewhere around the first of the year that the law had changed and now she also has one= is required to have one. Anyone else hear that?

When kings and queens meet fellow kings and queens do they say "Your Majesty" or call them by their name?

Hey yeah I've wondered that too but most likely out of respect they must call themselves your majesties unless for some reason they'll call themselves afterwards my their first names.
"hello Carl how are you?"
"I am fine thank you how is your family Elizabeth?"
"they are all well thank you what about the children how is Victoria...?"

Royal Playhouses

A lot of little royals have/had their own house:

Queen Elizabeth's little house is called Y Bwthyn Bach and was a gift of the Welsh people:

The swedish Haga princesses and King Carl Gustaf and now little Estelle
Playhouse for King Carl XVI Gustav and his sisters they got of Grandfather King Gustav V in late 1940´s | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Playhouse i the garden og Haga Castle | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

A little cottage at Solliden Slott (but I'm not sure wether this is a playhouse or not)
Solliden | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Princesses Margaretha, Martha (became Queen of Norway) and Astrid (became Queen of Belgium) first had a wooden yellow house and later a white plaster one at their home Villa Fridhem.
Lekstugearkivet/Archive for children's playhouses.htm
(you have to scroll down a bit)

The playhouse Queen Astrid of Belgium had built for Joséphine-Charlotte, Baudouin and Albert in the gardens of the Castle of Laeken after her own in Sweden. It was used to celebrate Princess Elisabeth's first birthday in 2002. (scroll down a bit)

I apologise in advance if this is the wrong thread. I have a question, I've read somewhere that Denmark, upon request offers diplomatic passports to agnatic (male-line) decendents of King Christian IX of Denmark

Lets just pretend the BRF is abolished, would The Duke of Cambridge as a member of the Royal House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg and an agnatic decendent of Christian IX of Denmark be eligable for a diplomatic passport? What do people think of the Duke of Cambridge's chances of being offered a diplomatic passport?
Queen Margrethe II agnatic ancestors:

Christian IX > Frederick VIII > Christian X > Frederick IX > Margrethe II

The Duke of Cambridge's agnatic ancestors

Christian IX > William (George I of the Hellenes) > Prince Andrew >Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark > The Prince of Wales >The Duke of Cambridge
