There was no problem with the marriage itself because even though Marilene is Catholic they had an ecumenical mass. The "scandal" was that former Queen Juliana, Prince Bernhard and Princess Margriet went to communion (is this the right term in English?) and therefore didn't show respect towards eucharistie in the eye of the Dutch Reform Church.

"She isnīt wearing ANYTHING", said a young child

The empress shuddered, for she knew that they were right, but she thought, "The procession must go on!" She carried herself even more proudly, and the chamberlains walked along behind carrying the train that wasn't there.

I've seen videos -- on YouTube -- of the baptisms of the three Dutch royal kids. There's one touch that is really really nice. All the godparents gather up on the altar and each one expresses a wish for the child. Because the godparents are from several different countries, the wishes are in several different languages. When Crown Princess Victoria was godmother to the eldest, she expressed her wish in English, I noticed.

As you can tell from my name, I'm Episcopalian/CoE. I've always been heavily Anglican. I got a job in a RC parish and the people are so lovely. Anyway, they have a Pastoral Associate who is a nun, and she is the nicest person I've met in a long time. So joyful in her heart. It's wonderful.

If Charles is crowned as Head of the Church of England it will be the biggest show of hypocrisy I'll ever witness and I would be outraged.

Prince Albert was, of course a Germanic Lutheran. Meanwhile, Victoria was the head of the Church of England. So the question I have is whether the British Royal Family at that time in history was fundamentally Lutheran or Anglican in outlook? Obviously when they attended church, for the most part they attended either the CofE or the C of Scotland. But was their religious orientation and outlook on life more shaped by Lutheran theology than by that of the CofE?  And how might the religious life and outlook of the observant members of the British Royal family today be different from that of the family in Victoria's day?

In their first year of marriage, the new Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna (Princess Elizabeth of Hesse) continued to be a Lutheran.     
 However, over time, with the example of her husband Grand Duke Serge (Sergei) helping, she became convinced of the beauty and authenticity of the Orthodox faith.     
Elizabeth formally converted and joined the Russian Orthodox Church.
