I may be making it up, but I think Benedikte met Richard and they fell in love but had to wait to marry him until Margrethe got married - thus some speculating that Marge and Henri was an arranged couple. AM was allowed to marry early because he was a proper royal Whistle

I have a hard time believing Henrik and Daisy were an arranged couple. If someone was going to go through the trouble of arranging a marriage for a future queen, I think they would have picked someone more high-born than a French nobleman. Plus, have you seen the looks those two were giving each other in their early photos together? No way!

My mother has always said that the Swedish royal family tried to set up Desirée, the older sister of Carl Gustaf, with Constantine, but that didn't happen. She read all the royal magazines in her youth so she should be well informed.

She also said that Ingrid and Frederik were very much against the marriage between AM and Constantine. They thought she was far too young and knew how unstable it was in Greece.
