Do young royals from non-reigning monarchies speak their country's language?
I know that many of them were born and raised outside their native countries because their ancestors were exiled.
For example, does Prince Pavlos of Greece speak Greek language?
Nicolas of Romania?
Leka of Albania?
Peter of Serbia?
Pedro and Carlo of Bourbon Two Sicilies?
Emanuel Filiberto and Aimone of Savoy?
George of Russia?
Hmm fluent in a language including reading and writing and speech is a bit different to being on holiday and able to communicate
So the Greeks .... maybe to some extent but brought up in English speaking countries and I’d be surprised if very proficient
George... id think his Russian is credible in spoken terms but reading and writing possible not so much .... born in Spain apparently and probably educated there as a child .... and then in Europe but not Russia....
Nicolas of Romania
?? His father was British and I think he probably was educated there .... he jumped on the bandwagon of “old exiles going back home” and after meeting lots of lovely ladies there married one .... good luck to that family.... all of them
As for Leka .... his mother was Australian and he is another pretender to a long defunct “crown” from a long time before he was born in somewhere other than Albania
So I’d put them in the same space.... they would be happy to raise a glass of something with Carl Christian of Austria as they remember the glory days they were never part of 😆
