Royals & Musical Instruments
 
I am keen to know that which Royals plays a musical Instrument.

I know that these Royals can play music.

Princess Beatrice of York plays the Piano.
Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg plays the Violin.
Prince Felix of Luxembourg plays the Cello.
Grand Duchess Maria Teresa plays the Guitar.

I will post Pictures of them with the Instruments soon.

Happy Posting

Exactly. He is an accomplished jazz musician & composer with his own band and used to play with the Greats of Jazz, such as Goodman or Hampton. It's more than a hobby so many people call him the "Jazz King"

The princesses Amalia and Alexia of the Netherlands take violin lessons and Pieter van Vollenhoven plays the piano. He used to sing in a band as well.

I don't know more Dutch royals playing a musical instrument, but I do know Queen Beatrix and her sisters Margriet and Christina enjoy singing. Christina is a classically trained singer and she performed at several royal events. In the 80's, Beatrix and Margriet actually recorded a song together with their husbands.

Princess Martha-Louise of Norway sings. There's at least 1 youtube clip I've seen her singing. Also, didn't the Norwegian crown princely couple sing at CP Victoria's wedding a couple of weeks ago.

nascarlucy 07-18-2010 07:52 PM

Has any royal ever played in an orchestra, a rock band or performed at a charity concert? Or what about making an album. Has any royalty ever won an music award for their performances or music? What about singing their national athem at a sporting event or other event?

Queen Elisabeth of Belgium (the grandmother of the present King Albert II) played the violin; her teachers were the famous Belgian violinist and her friend Eugène Ysaÿe, and Ysaÿe's wife after his death in 1931.

I read several years back that the Duke of Cambridge was taught some piano, but wasn't very good at it.

Also, I remember reading that his wife was taught piano as well (I believe I read it on this board).

Diarist 12-29-2011 07:56 AM

Don't forget that the Duchess of Kent is a marvellous musician, who plays the piano and the organ and in recent years has even taught piano.

Princess Margaret was indeed an accomplished pianinst and could sing as well. She was felt to be quite talented, but never was pushed to take things further and for example study music at College etc. That was because she was born at a time into the sort of background where music was an 'accomplishment' and a little polite piano-playing and singing was a 'charming drawing room social skill' for many young 'gels' and that was all, unless you had enlightened parents and/ or a 'pushy' music teacher.

Charles played the Cello at school but gave it up when he left. Acting was his 'thing' instead by the time he reached Cambridge. Diana was quite a good pianist - don't forget that her grandmother Lady Fermoy was in fact a Conservatoire-trained concert pianist.

I well remember Diana playing during an enagement. From memory, Charles was first asked to play the cello, whereupon Diana then apparently took great delight [it was at the start of the 'wars of the Waleses' [so-called] in 'showing him up' Until that time, I don't think tht people had realised that she was really quite good at the piano.

I have also see Fergie, rather, er, merry with alcohol, banging away at a table in the Farm Club, Verbier, as if it were a drum, and singing [shouting out] the chorus of a very rude song... Hardly music though, and so I had better stop!

Hope some of this is of interest.

I remember reading about Princess Alexandra's musical talent, and that she was a patron of something music-related too. I knew Diana enjoyed dancing, but had no idea that she was a rather talented pianist to boot. As usual, thank you for the information.

Diarist 12-29-2011 02:07 PM

Although it is not exactly playing an instrument, the Duchess of Kent also has a lovely singing voice, and was in London's Bach Choir for many years. It is a large chorus based in London under the baton of an eminent conductor. Not all of its members are profesional 'full time singers'.

I have a friend who is a mezzo soprano and was in the Bach Choir for some years when she lived in London. The choir used to rehearse weekly and in the middle of each practice, they used to break out for refreshment, bringing with them thermos flasks etc. and sitting in little groups. The Duchess of Kent used to sit with the little groups of 3, 4 and 5, with her detective suddenly materialising with the Duchess' own thermos etc. One day, my friend turned up without her own little snack. It was during the time of the IRA bombings , and my friend, who worked near Victoria Station, had been evacuated from her office as there was a bomb scare that afternoon. It was the evening rush hour, and the police would not let anyone back and so my friend just went on to her Bach choir rehearsal, remembering too late that her little bag was still back at the office. In fact, a couple of other choir members were in the same position, as they had been evacuated from their offices too, and had left most of their belongings behind. The kind Duchess swiftly produced spare cups etc and poured my friend and several others a cup of coffee. The Duchess has a very 'far-from-grand' human side to her and I must say I miss the kindliness and compassion that she used to bring to her public engagements. It is always a delight for me when I see her at a Royal occasion.

Dierna23 12-29-2011 02:36 PM

The late Duke of Kent, Prince George, was an excellent pianist from what I've read. Not so surprising as he was quite interested and talented in many fields concerning art. He and Marina loved to play duets. In their living room they had two pianos side by side and that was the way how they loved to play together. After George's death noone would ever play on his piano again...

It's said that Lord Freddie is also a talented pianist. Princess Michael plays piano too and she plays the guitar. I don't know more about the other members of the family.

The video about Diana playing piano is very very sweet. :smile:

Interesting. Thank you again for your stories :flowers:. Voice is considered an instrument. A secondary school that I visited couple of years ago for observation purposes had a music concentration, and in order to get into the school, students had to be proficient in two instruments. If a student sang, that was equivalent to playing an instrument.

I was looking at some info on Royal children that play a musical instrument. Elisabeth and Gabriel both play the piano, Amalia sings but also plays the violin with Alexia...
What about other Royal children?

And what about Harp? Any royal (adult or not) plays it? Harp is one of the most grogeous and delicate musical instrument out there and also unusual because its rare to find someone who plays it.

Princess Anne played the oboe when she was at boarding school, but she had to give it up because her teeth got in the way! (I thought that was quite funny; I played the clarinet for 6 years from grades 6 to 12 (age 11 to 17) and never found it a problem.) She also sang in the school choir (as did I when I was that age) and as well did fencing, ballet, lacrosse, tennis, badminton, volleyball, drama and of course horseback riding. When I was in my first year of college in 2009, I went to a lot of the varsity home games. I also participated in Wednesday noon hour activities in the gym; like basketball, dodgeball, shoe-tossing, etc, as well as Monday night intramural volleyball. Needless to say, I got the school spirit award at the end of the year.

My first college roomate introduced herself by way of saying she was a music/oboe major and that oboists went mad because of the ENOURMOUS pressure it took to play the instrument built back into the brain. It was like - "Hi, watch me go off top dead center." I am sure Anne had a far better intro line at school. ;)
