Re: Approving one's own marriage

Even if there are no official laws requiring *equality* (in Sweden, princes used to be prohibited from marrying commoners, but enthroned kings could marry whomever they wished), or official consent from an external party is not required, sovereigns with a sense of noblesse oblige are nonetheless known to consult their governments (perhaps requesting unofficial approval), when marrying after being enthroned. We have seen this in the cases of the present king of Sweden and prince of Monaco, to name just a few examples.
Are you saing that King Carl XVI Gustaf unofficially consulted the government before getting married? Your source for this?
