: could only marry other royals.
: Your examples of Belgian and Dutch heirs
: marriying nobles would not be "good
: enough" in Sweden. And another British
: royal to marry a commeoner in the 1960's was
: Princess Alexandra.
Only if you draw the line between royals and commoners.
Angus Ogilvy was the Earl of Airlie's 2nd son.
If you see it that way, then Q.Mary, QEQM and Lady Diana Spencer were also commoners.
: married one in the 1970's.
Pss Margaret got married in 1960.
Another member of the BRF who was dating a commoner and would probably marry her was Pr.William of Gloucester.
Pss.Margriet of the Netherlands also married a commoner and retained her succession rights.
King Boris III of Bulgaria married a commoner but he was the head of the house and could marry whoever he wanted, just like Carl-Gustav after his grand-father's death.
Pr.Vittorio Emanuelle's wedding to Miss Marina Doria still causes doubts.
King Umberto did not allow the wedding nor did he attend but he never explicitely wrote off his son fron the succession, despite the Aosta's claim.
