15 Royal Couples You Didn’t Know About
Prince William and Duchess Kate have received a lot of attention for their relatable romance. They met in university and were married in April 2011. Now Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are getting all of the attention as they are set to be married in May 2018. There are a lot of other royal couples though – but they don’t get the same amount of attention even though their romances are equally as sweet as the British royal couples. Here are 15 royal couples that you didn’t know about:
15. Prince Joachim and Princess Marie of Denmark
Prince Joachim first met his wife Princess Marie of Denmark at a dinner party when he was married to his first wife Alexandra Manley, Countess of Frederiksborg. While they initially enjoyed talking with one another (they were the only two people at the party who spoke French), they didn’t begin dating until his marriage was over. The couple was married in May 2007 and have had two children since: Prince Henrik Carl Joachim Alain, who was born in 2009, and Princess Athena Marguerite Françoise Marie, who was born in 2012. While Marie was initially hesitant to get involved with a Prince because she liked being self-sufficient, by the time he proposed in 2007, she had decided that it was worth it. Now she calls Joachim her “soulmate.”
14. Prince Pierre Casiraghi of Monaco and Beatrice Borromeo
Prince Pierre Casiraghi – brother of Prince Andrea Casiraghi – is seventh in line to the Monegasque throne. His mother is Caroline, Princess of Hanover, and his father is Stefano Casiraghi. He’s married to aristocratic journalist Beatrice Borromeo, who he has been with since 2008. They met at Milan’s Bocconi University where he was studying International Business and she was studying Law. These two – who are known for breaking royal conventions with their handholding and PDA – have one child, a son named Stefano Ercole Carlo, as well as another one on the way.
