Foibles of Royals Returns - Part Whatever
So, what's the tea on Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark (son of ex-King Constatine and ex-Queen Anne-Marie of Greece (nee HRH Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark)?
Married five year to the very elegant blonde Tatiana, he's already 50 no children.
Is Tatiana a beard?
He's quite good-looking in a greasy suspicious sort of way.

Christian's hair is longer than the older photo and if I'm not mistaken he had braces on his teeth in the past. His voice is probably changing and he's getting loads of testosterone spurting through his body. He'll be 15 in October so if he's not changing now, then when?
|by Anonymous||reply 15||09/02/2020|
R9 and others remarking on Prince Christian's new photos - he has obviously been going through a bad case of adolescent acne over the last year or so. It's too bad, but it will likely clear up, and he is on the verge of becoming the Catch of Europe (as you all know, I am reserving him for Princess Charlotte and the blockbuster Royal Wedding of the century when both parties ARE actually "royal" by birth and unite two of the premiere reigning Houses of Europe - I just need to live long enough to see it).
Christian looks more like his mother every day, and Princess Isabella, growing up fast, is getting prettier and looks very much like her father and grandmother, the Queen. Of the younger twins, Prince Vincent already looks personable and is already rather handsome in a twinkish way.
But the focus will be on the next Crown Prince once Margrethe dies or abdicates and Frederik and Mary take over, and if Christian doesn't turn chunky, he'll be the Big Catch in Europe - the next Prince William, if you will - not least because he's about the only future heir to the throne of his generation who is male.

How pretty Peter and Autumn Phillips' daughters look.
I'm sure Meghan looks at those photos and shudders thinking about what a weekend like that would be like for the-urban-to-her-soul L.A. hustler, ignoring the sensibilities of bonds being strengthened amongst family members, particularly the all-important head of the family, historic traditions - something that transcends pool lounging, dropping A-lister's names, and hustling in Hollywood.
But you have to wonder if furtive images arise in Harry, who until he married Meghan spent part of every summer of his life up at Balmoral, which sits on the some of the richest and most beautiful 40,000 acres in Britain, of he and his family as well as William and his family being greeted affectionately with the increasingly frail and bent-over grandmother.

As the embedded article suggests, the title for a king regnant's husband could/should be king consort; the title for a queen regnant's wife could/should be queen consort. Then you would have His Majesty King Jamarcus and His Majesty Longines, King Consort. Easy peasy.

You have to give Fergie her due: she never stops trying.
R38 - Considering how downright ugly his father is, young Alexander got lucky in the DNA department. His mother was what is called a "handome" woman in her youth - not cookie cutter pretty but distinguished looking with beautiful skin and bright blue eyes, with a tall slim figure.
But to me, Alexander, except for his fairness, seems to bear a strong resemblance to his handsome great-grandfather, Prince George, Duke of Kent, Queen Mary's and King Edward VII's youngest (surviving) son. George married the beautiful Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark. They were a glamourous couple. The Duke was killed in an airplane accident during WWII, leaving Marina a beautiful young widow with three young children - Cecil Beaton took a striking portrait of her shortly afterward.
Alexander, in my view, bears a striking resemblance to his great-grandfather, the only genuinely good-looking fellow amongst the sons of Edward and Mary. George (all right but nothing special), Edward (fey fey fey), Henry (dull)/

Prince George, Duke of Kent, was notorious for his string of affairs with both women and men and he was often alleged to have been a drug addict. Nonetheless his marriage with Marina appears to have been strong and he was a highly popular royal, both with the the public and inside the family.
|by Anonymous||reply 49||09/10/2020|
R47 - Caroline and Diana shared something: idiotic, self-destructive taste in men. Caroline's first husband was a nearly middle-aged playboy; her second husband was a reckless wastrel who had a mistress tucked away when he died in that horrible boating accident; and the third was the louche, corrupt Prince Ernst Augustus.
Diana did a bit better, but her pursuit of men she really couldn't marry after her divorce, and ending her life in the arms of that Papa's Puppet toy boy who couldn't go for a pee without calling his totally corrupt Da first came pretty close.
|by Anonymous||reply 50||09/10/2020|
R49 - The drug addiction was fact, not rumour. One of the only selfless things Edward VIII did before he took off for Wallis-Land was to lock his youngest brother in a room and nurse him off George's addiction. When the Abdication Crisis rolled around, the Duke of Kent's agony was acute, as he owed his brother for this, wanted to support him, but couldn't because it became clear that the monarchy had to line up against Edward for its own sake.
The bisexuality was also more than just rumoured. And, yes, the marriage with Marina appeared to be a genuine love match.
Marina was the only person to marry into the family in that generation who was a blood princess in her own right, and she wasn't above mentioning it now and then. She was heard to refer to the Duchess of York, Prince Albert's wife, as "that common little Scottish girl".
That changed the moment the ink was dry on the Abdication instrument, as the common little Scottish girl became Queen Consort of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and its Territories Beyond the Seas AND the last Empress of India.

Looks like Princess Beatrice may be up the duff. Went shopping for baby clothes in London.
|by Anonymous||reply 52||09/11/2020|
If Bea's up the duff it's still a little early to be buying baby clothes - she can't be more than three months along. Traditionally, you buy nothing until safely past the first trimester. They were only married in mid-July, not even two months ago.
I suppose it's possible she was pregnant, but that doesn't, somehow, seem like Bea.
For all we know, it's Eugenie who's up the duff and the clothes were a gift from soon to be Auntie Bea.
|by Anonymous||reply 53||09/11/2020|
Must say, Bea looks happy and peaceful in that photo. The look she used to carry around of trying too hard has gone. All she ever wanted was a handsome husband, a wedding, a couple of beautiful rings, and a family.
I hope Edo doesn't turn out to be the mountebank cad he always looked to be.

|by Anonymous||reply 65||09/14/2020|
R60 - I think Philip may have screwed around a bit but not nearly as much as legend would have it.
The odd thing about your basic "man's man", which is what Philip is, is that they don't really value the company of women much. They're much happier in the company of other men. I doubt he'd have needed that much sex as time went on, and a more verifiable legend is that once she got the taste for it, his pretty young bride couldn't get enough of it. Appearances to the contrary, the young Princess Elizabeth (remember all that passion for horses stuff - she's a countrywoman at heart and country people tend not to be squeamish about sex or death) loved sex.
So I think the rumours are overplayed for tabloid fodder.

What I like about Maxima is that she appears to know she isn't a beauty but, somewhat like Camilla, just doesn't care and dresses however she likes and embraces her lack of taste as taste. It's a cheery Fuck You to the fashion police and she gets away with it because she's so enthusiastic, good at her job, and engaging.
She looks like the least self-conscious of most of the better known royals in Europe. And, interestingly, I would add Queen Margrethe to the list - she also knows she's no beauty but doesn't care, and takes her job seriously but not herself.
The result is lots of humour for the rest of us.

Prince Sverre is seriously chonky looking. Those little glasses don’t help, I don’t know where he gets that from as his parents and grandparents on both sides are slim, with the exception of The King who was slim and outdoorsy his whole life until he got bladder cancer and other health issues. Probably steroid bloat in The King’s case.
Prince Sverre also looks like he could be a behavior case, I don’t know why but I look at him and I see gym class bully. Luckily the throne goes to his sister Princess Ingrid.
I do have sympathy for the Glucksburg kids though, as their mother is slowly dying of a degenerative lung disease that has no cure or treatment. I think she has about 5 years left, at most.
