Your favorite non-British royals

I think Queen Maxima of The Netherlands is just fab. I love that she comes from Argentina, of all places, and wound up a Dutch royal. The House of Orange is supposed to be ridiculously rich, from oil money. And Max just looks fantastic when all glammed up, the Oranges have a very impressive jewel collection and it’s as if the piece she came to new life when she started wearing them.

That’s actually not the Crown Prince. That’s his brother and his family. The Crown Prince’s wife failed to produce a male heir. Despite a historic precedent of female Empress Regnants, the Japanese throne will skip the Crown Prince’s daughter and instead go to the Crown Prince’s brother’s son.

Here is Prince Frederick again, holding a bird for some reason.

Crown prince Frederik of Denmark. Amazing down to earth person. Read Political science at Harward and Aarhus University under a cover name. He has completed extensive military studies and training in all three services, notably completing education as a sailor in the naval elite special operations forces (members of this are known as frogmen or frømænd in Danish). His frogman nickname is "Pingo". In the period 2001 and 2002, the Crown Prince completed further training for leaders at the Royal Danish Defence College. Crown Prince Frederik remains active in the defence, and in the period 2002–2003 served as a staff officer at Defence Command Denmark, and from 2003 as a senior lecturer with the Institute of Strategy at the Royal Danish Defence College. And has done a lot of military service also in the royal airforce. Also he is a member of the International Olympic Committee. He runs an ironman every year and has also joined in on Expedition Sirius. If you are ever finding your self in Copenhagen, you might be lucky to se this Danish future king and his beloved australian wife Mary, cycling around on "Strøget" shopping for clothes for their children and taking a cup of coffee at a local café. They also don't believe in Royal babysitters/nannies.

Max’s father was part of the ‘Junta’ that was in power in Argentina. I think he was in the agriculture ministry but he was well connected to the dictator and I don’t think his hands are clean when it comes to embezzled wealth or Disappearances. The Dutch government though better of inviting him. Crown Princess Maxima wept during the portion of her wedding ceremony where they played an orchestral version of an Argentinian tango. Most interpreted it as her sorrow that important members of her family were not present. I can’t watch this video without being moved myself. I completely fell in love with Maxima from this point.

The Romanovs were of course mostly German. Generation after generation of grand dukes following the death of Catherine II were married to German princesses. A rare exception was Maria Feodorovna, who was the mother of the assassinated Tsar Nicholas II, she was born a Danish princess but herself was mostly German.

Why do the Greek royals still get invited to things? If it weren’t for being related to Prince Philip, no one would care about them, money or not...

And why do the descendants of abolished monarchies continue to use their titles?

None of the Euro royal Families have as much money as the Arabians, Thais, or the Sultan of Brunei.

The Norwegian king is the custodian of a pretty decent jewel collection for his wife though. She has about six or seven tiaras at her disposal, which is more than some other consorts have. He also has use of a great royal yacht, which is like a little shop. Queen Margrethe has one as well. Queen Elizabeth had to give hers up years ago. She didn’t cry at her mother or suster’s funerals, but she cried when they decommissioned her yacht.

Crown Prince Pavlos is prince of nowhere. The Greeks voted to abolish the monarchy and even though Constantine II has returned to Greece, he longer has Greek citizenship - the Greek government stripped him of that 2 decades ago. They refuse to allow him to become a Greek citizen until he uses a last name, as all Greek citizens are required to do.

It is an affront to the people of Greece that these people parade around with nonexistent titles that were abolished by popular vote. Crown Prince Pavlos does not have any claim to the Greek throne - the monarchy has been abolished. Pavlos and his parents are propped up financially by Robert Miller and his billions, because one of his daughters wanted to play dress up with tiaras and call herself a Princess, when in fact she is not.

Without Miller, Pavlos would spend less time racing yachts (all owned by Miller) and would have to spend more time working . Perhaps he could design jewelry like the Prince of (nonexistent) Yugoslavia.

R145, Mette Marit was a single mom and a coffee shop counter girl by day who was a raver by night. There was a big dance music festival in Norway and the crown prince was there and being an unassuming guy I guess he was mingling with the crowd and met her. She did a teary confession on TV acknowledging her wild past (sex, party drugs, clubs) at the time of the engagement. I know there is very frequent talk about marital problems to the point where the palace had to release a statement to refute the story. I think part of the problem is that she disappeared from sight for a long time due to neck or spine problems and I guess that added fuel to the fire. It’s not uncommon for Haakon to escort his aunt Princess Astrid on state occasions though, maybe because of protocol and precedence. So when he walks in with her and Mette Maria walks in with someone else, it certainly looks outwardly like they are estranged.
