I'll look for more photos of other advertisements from members of European royal families.

That's indeed a nice idea. However, the engagement photo of Princess Margriet and Pieter van Vollenhoven is not actually from their press meeting, it's a publicity photo.
This one is from their press meeting:, posted in their wedding thread on TRF.
He used a walking stick due to having a broken ankle.

What a nice idea, I enjoyed looking at all the young and hopeful couples. I especially live the king and queen of Norway somehow. The spirit and body language of the couples sometimes comes through. Can you get Queen Elizabeth and p Margaret and p Caroline

Thank you for these wonderful photos.
I love the black and white pictures. What a great idea to assemble couples, mostly in their youth, all with a similar hope and excitement of forging a life together.
