Actually, Prince Lorenz has green eyes, as you can see in this picture: ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

But I personally think they are hazel...I can spot bits of green in them sometimes.
Yes, they appear to be light hazel with a little hint of green in them, I think she has absolutely beautiful eyes, the colour is so gorgeous and unique.

Well, that's difficult, it seems to me baby George's eyes are either green or dark blue.

Colour of Royal Eyes

Regarding George and babies, don't babies eyes stay blue for a little while then settle on a colour? But for now they look sort of a blue?!

As for Mary, I can agree on the hazel colour!

Does anyone know if Princess Margaret is the only member of her family to have had violet eyes? She took regular blue royal eyes to a different level.
She seemed unique in her beauty and I wonder where her violet eyes originated and if someone from her family has them too. It would be lovely if they appeared in one of her forebears or appear again in her descendants.

just happened upon this old comment of mine and have to amend that Sverre Magnus has blue. Not sure what I was thinking when I typed brown?! I've also noticed that Haakon's are sometimes green/hazel even if the majority of the time they're brown.
As for my favorite(s)... would have to be Nikolai of Denmark followed by Leonor of Spain x

How could Infanta Sofía have dark brown eyes when both King and Queen both have light

I am not a genetic expert, but the genes for light colored eyes (blue, green, grey etc) are recessive: Meaning that every person with light eyes carries two genes for light eyes. And thus can only give such a gene to his/her child.

Infanta Sofía of Spain has brown eyes. How did she get the dominant gene for dark (brown, hazel) eyes?
Genes of a child come directly from each of her parents,
Since King Felipe (Blue) and Queen Letizia (green) both have recessive (light eyes) they both only have recessive eye genes to donate.

Any parent that gives a dominant gene (brown,hazel eyes) to a child must, by definition, have dark eyes him/her self.

Queen Letizia's eyes look like dark hazel to me. They look similar to her daughter's eyes.

I agree. Letizia has beautiful medium hazel eyes...and in some photos they appear almost green.

That's not entirely true. If a brown-eyed person carries the recessive allele for blue eyes and has a child with another brown-eyed person that carries the recessive allele for blue eyes, their child will have blue eyes. If one of those parents had a green allele, the child would have green eyes. In this way, a child with blue eyes (or green) will also have a brown allele that they, in turn, would pass on to their children. So, sometimes a person with blue eyes has only blue alleles, sometimes they don't. Brown eyes are dominant over all colors, green eyes are dominant over blue, and blue eyes are always recessive.

This is a rather simplistic diagram, but it does a decent job of showing what the odds are that a child will have X colored eyes, depending on the eye color of the parent -->

Queen Letizia doesn't have green eyes, though. Her eyes are more of a hazel brown color, which is why Infanta Sofia's eyes are brown.
