you are most welcome, ladies  Curtsey

I think the old guard is the last bastion of being really related....the newer generation are mostly commoners married in. And in time the close relations will move further and further away, unless the little ones now decide to marry a royal again.

Rather interesting, no?!?

Hey thanks for this!  Banana Banana Star I was just wondering about this yesterday!

It's still complicated though. I find it easier to think that Queen Elizabeth's grandpa George V and King Harald's grandma Maud were siblings and that Carl Gustaf's dad and Marge's mom were siblings for example than to think of their ancestors but often it is so much more complicated than that. I also find it sort of strange that many of the royals are multiple times descended from Queen Victoria through several of her children. It's kinda like being your own cousin.

Thanks for this, Pede.   Star  King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Margrethe II are first cousins?  Didn't know that.  Knew they were related, but not first cousins.   Smiley
