I'll just chip in with my little contribution here: yes, you may safely remove the question mark as far as Norway is concerned. No "grand-heir" has been married since the advent of the current Norwegian royal family in 1905. |
(And just one tiny correction for Denmark: the Prince Christian who married Alexandrine of Mecklenburg-Schwerin later became King Christian X, not IX )
: The recent announcement from the UK has me
: wondering: It is fairly uncommon for the
: heir apparent to the heir apparent to a
: European monarch to wed. When was the last
: one from each monarchy?
: The following are just off the top of my
: head, so please correct and add as
: UK: George Duke of York and May of Teck
: Sweden: Prince Gustaf Adolf and Sybilla of
: Norway: None since 1905?
: Denmark: Prince Christian (IX) and
: Alexandrine of Mecklenburg
: Spain: None at least since at least early
: 19th century
: Belgium: Ever?
: Netherlands: Willem (III) and Sophia of
: Luxembourg: Henri & Maria Teresa would
: have made it if Charlotte had not abdicated,
: but she did.
: Monaco: None since liberation from
: Liechtenstein: ??
