so... do they have a sort of checklist they use before they give him permission to marry..if so whats on it?
As far as I am aware there is no checklist and it is up to the monarch of the day e.g. the Queen mightn't be prepared to give consent for William to marry Kate but William knows that his father will so is waiting (this is an example only and based on absolutely no evidence at all) for his father to become king before seeking permission.
I am sure that there are many parents out there who would like to have to give consent to whomever their descendents marry to prevent someone marrying into the family of whom they disapprove but...only the British monarch has that power in law in Britain any more, if the parties are of age.
