Before the law of succession was changed (from males first to eldest child regardless of gender), King Carl Gustaf of Sweden was automatically the heir even though he was the fifth born child. His elder sisters were Margaretha, Birgitta, Desiree and Christina.

Sofia of Sweden looked tremendous in her red gown and pearls at the Nobel ceremony, in the photos posted in the prior thread. Amazing.

Good for Victoria for re-cycling and re-wearing her mother's Nina Ricci gown. Those kind of looks can be timeless and it makes sense to re-wear them and pass them down if they fit. Loved it.

by Anonymousreply 1412/10/2018

Good lord, the ROCKS on display at the Nobel ceremony! Sofia looks more regal than either Silvia or Victoria, both of whose dresses leave much to be desired - the Ricci dress needs more in the way of, er, real beauty to be carried off. Some designs just aren't done justice to by ordinary looking women.

They say that CP Mary went to some sort of finishing courses called Starmakers before she married into the Danish Royal Family. Matters of deportment, how to look someone in the eyes when conversing. Proper use of tableware, table manners and the like. It works for her because she comes off as classy to me. She’s from Tasmania, so she’s a tad raffish but she’s so charming. She’s got many detractors on the Royal forums...sounds like jealousy.

In this day and age what difference is there if a British heir marries a Catholic?

by Anonymousreply 10612/22/2018

there isn't r106. Not since the rule or law was changed to allow the monarch or those in order of succession to be married to Catholics and keep their place in line. It would be fine, but the Catholic spouse would have to agree in advance to raise their children as Anglican, as they are heirs and the monarch is the "Defender of the Faith" among other things.

Any of their children outside the immediate heir could convert to Catholicism on reaching adulthood. They'd lose their place in succession however.

by Anonymousreply 15101/05/2019

R151 - It's different with European royals. They have events like "swearing in " ceremonies rather than coronations. I don't think the European royals who abdicated were CROWNED and ANOINTED with holy water from the River Jordan like Queen Elizabeth was at her coronation. The British monarch also lived through the trauma of King Edward VIII's abdication. When the Queen was 21 years old she made a broadcast and said these words: " My whole life -whether it be long or short - shall be devoted to your service"...I don't think the Queen will ever abdicate. She will relinquish her duties bit by bit to Charles but I don't think she'd go back on her word.

The other royal families don't have qualms about retiring and giving up the throne. It's almost expected in places like the Netherlands. The three Dutch Queens (Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix) all abdicated. I expect that Willem Alexander will do the same in due time for his daughter Catharina-Amalia.

by Anonymousreply 16401/10/2019

R164 - yes but the royals are marrying "commoners" now instead of their fellow royals. That's good and bad. It's good for variety as far as the gene pool is concerned but bad because their standards have been lowered to such a degree that they risk becoming jokes (eg. divorced women, actresses, reality stars, women with children but no husband etc...).

Meanwhile, back in Monaco, Charlotte Casiraghi is denying that she broke up with her fiancee. I doubt it will last whether she marries him or not.

by Anonymousreply 16501/10/2019

R165 I suspect this is likely to become the norm. I personally think it’s boring when royals marry someone who is already titled or outrageously wealthy in some way. In a modern society, things like divorce, children out of wedlock, etc are the norm now. I know the royals aren’t really supposed to be modern, but I think it serves them better from a PR standpoint to marry for love.

Also, there seems to be MORE trouble with natural born royals and the super wealthy.

R166, I think it was one of the Swedish royals who said that marrying Swedish commoners was a way to align the royal family more with the people, long-term. It certainly wasn't said that way, but that was what was implied. It does make sense, really. Long-term, no one can claim that the royal family isn't Swedish. And they could there for a while.

There’s plenty of gossip about them. It’s just that they’re from countries where English isn’t the first language, so most of the tea spilled about them is seldom in English. And in Norway it’s against the law to say anything about the Royal Family. Paris Match and Der Spiegel have lots of gossip about them. That’s how people found out that Princess Mette Marit was cheating on Prince Haakon of Norway. It could not be printed in Norway.

R236 - are you alluding to her "plastic surgery"? I honestly don't think she's had any. She has a wrinkly neck and under-chin and surely that would've been taken care of with surgery?

by Anonymousreply 23802/07/2019

R238 - sadly, I think Silvia has ruined her face. She WAS really pretty. How do her eyes look more "open" now than when she was much younger? You can have a face lift without a neck lift. Her face lift should have worn off by now so I wouldn't be surprised if we see another version shortly. Her cheeks are also noticeably "fuller".

I'm pretty sure we've discussed Rania's new face on one of these threads before. It's truly dreadful. Hopefully, it will settle. She was so naturally beautiful that her aging couldn't have been so bad as to distort her face with fillers. What a contrast seeing Martha Louise's picture right below. Though only a year younger, her naturally aging features are graceful and still beautiful, but Rania has had her face butchered with beyond recognition. She used to be so beautiful. Sure, the desert climate is harsh on skin, but FFS... She an Terry Dubrow ought to host some program together just for the giggles.
