Miscellaneous Thoughts and Questions on Royals

I'm curious about the relationships between Royals from different families meeting for the first time & how they get on. I'm not just meaning on official state visits but other functions too. So to give some examples: Princess Diana & Princess Caroline - I can remember there was a banquet (in France?) which both attended - was this their first meeting? Did they get along? Similarly, both Princess Madeleine & Princess Charlotte have spent time in England did/do they socialise with any British Royals. ( Has Charlotte met William or Harry yet?) When Royals holiday in each others countries are there examples of them getting in touch? I know for example Charles & Di spent time with King Carlos & Queen Sofia, but are there members of other families that spend time together? Also, are there some who don't hit it off? I seem to remember reading somewhere that Princess Margaret wasn't on best terms with everyone.

Mary & Frederik spent a weekend in Norway with Haakon & MM soon after Christian's birth (I think it was).
Maxima & WA spent some holiday time with one of the Spanish Infantas (and I'm sorry I should remember which one but at the moment I dont) - BUT there is a thread for it somewhere, also check out royals.web-log.nl for the odd picture or 2

Do Royals Sing Happy Birthday?

Or is this the official happy birthday song in Denmark?



I just thought that it was a beautiful song. And I wanted to play it. However, I couldnt find the chords to it. Anybody here, that knows the name of it or could link the chords?

I will post a vid once I recorded the song. I dont know any danish. But thought I would learn the lyrics just for the heck of it.

Cheers!!

Here you go, acco-noob: Klassiske sange til fødselsdag og den traditionelle fødselsdagssang

Just substitute Ole with whatever name you want.

And yes, this is the birthday song for, primarily children, in DK.

No, no, we drink a lot of booze, then we try to remember who among us is having a birthday.

You can also play that game alone, but that requires more schnapps.

I see, is that a problem due to
a) Too big hands?
b) Lack of sufficient motor skills?
c) Unable to comprehend how to use a glass?
d) Because glasses are impractical when spending most of your life lying on the floor?
e) Because the bartender has always served your drinks in a trough?
f) Because you use your knuckles for support and thus is unable to use a glass?
g) Or?

(There is a possibillity this is banter).

Princess Patricia of Connaught's Coronet For Sale?

Apologies if this is out of place, but googling led me here.

My wife was looking online at estate sales in Los Angeles, and came across a coronet to be sold at an estate sale this weekend (4/4/2014). It looks like they're selling Princess Patricia of Connaught's coronet. Per <this thread>, her sister's (Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden) coronet is in a Swedish museum, and Patricia's is missing.









Images originally from <this estate sale>

I don't know anything about the authenticity of anything there, nor do I have any particular knowledge/interest in this topic, but the based on depth and breadth of the items sale (fine art, furnishings, etc) it seems someone definitely had some connection to the family. The address for the sale isn't released yet, but when done so, the owner could be looked up via public records.

I would have thought something like a coronet would be property of the state (and therefore not eligible for sale). Even if that's not the case, perhaps some representative from the UK should make a quick trip out to LA with cash in hand

Amazing how people end up with treasures like this that rightfully belong to others. I find it appalling and in bad taste. So much history that someone else acquired and is now being sold at auction. Disgusting.

I'd write to the museum where Crown Princess Margaret's is and tell them what you've found.

i tweeted them, but no response. i only looked into this briefly, but, unlike her sister, patricia has no direct connection to the swedes, so maybe they aren't interested.

Hereditary Offices

I would like to ask the Forum members - if anybody knows about hereditary offices in current monarchies in Europe - outside United Kingdom (I know about "hereditary"-elected lords, 2 hereditary Great State Officers and a lot of different officers all around the Kingdom).
I wonder if there are such offices or functions outside UK?
Thank you very much in advance for any information.

Marcin

Why Was Charles Brandon Loved by Henry?

What was it about Charles Brandon that made even Henry unable to either kill him or permanently banish him from court? Brandon wasn't banished from court only once, it was more then that Im told. And I'm also told that hes the "only" supposed friend that remained by Henry's side.

So what was it? were they brothers? I know they're both not legit brothers but like did henry consider him a brother?

For starters he was handsome, rakish, macho, women fell for him in a big way much like they did Henry as a young man. Henry saw himself in Brandon, and loved him like a brother and boon companion.

Henry's favorite sister Mary was also passionately in love with him. So even though Henry was furious that Brandon had in effect committed treason by marrying Mary Tudor behind Henry's back, Henry was unable to retaliate due to his affection for both of them.

Charles befriended Harry before Harry became the Heir. Second, Charles' father had fought for Henry VII at Bosworth and died, so in return Henry VII raised Charles as his ward at the royal court. They bonded early and Charles showed his loyalty was to Harry time and time again, no matter what he was asked to do.

I apologoze. Back in June I had to change the privacy setting to Secret because we kept getting a lot of nutcase, idiots, anti Monarchist, Spammers, Ads, et,. So in September I decided to change it back to Close but Apparently after 250 members I can can change the setting from close to secret but i van not reverse it back to close!

It a stupid rule and I think it need to be changed. It still up but you need to know someone who in the group.
