LIKE A REAL LIFE FAIRY TALE?
Again, from the outside, it probably resembles fairy tales… Spectacular castles, palaces, mansions… Traveling by luxury vehicles… Servants with propellers around you… On top of that, clothes bearing the signature of famous designers… Everywhere you go, you wave and show affection. people… In addition to all these, glittering invitations and a series of seemingly endless privileges… When viewed from this perspective, it seems like a perfect life. But what happens behind closed doors is not exactly like that.
‘THEY ARE DOING THEIR BEST TO BE HARMED’
One of the clues in this regard came from an “insider” source who was familiar with the British royal family. Third cousin of King Charles, who took the throne after the death of Queen Elizabeth II Christina OxenbergHe spoke about the family, which his members would not like to hear. He claimed that only those who joined this family later and who were “hard as nails” had a chance to survive, because their family members did their best to annoy the newcomers and treated them treacherously.
‘It’s not about the color of your skin, it’s about being a foreigner’
King Charles’ third cousin, Christina Oxenberg, argued that Meghan Markle was subjected to the same brutal practice after she married Prince Harry in 2018. “They’re brutal to strangers. It’s not about your skin color, it’s about you being a stranger,” he said…
‘THEY MUST RESPECT HARRY’S CHOICE’
Speaking to The Post, Oxenberg, 59, who is also the daughter of ex-Yugoslav Princess Elizabeth, told Markle, “She’s Harry’s choice… “They call it the class system by their own criteria.” He added that it should be respected.
IT WAS NOT EASY TO ACCEPT KATE
Fashion designer and writer Christina Oxenberg was once known for her closeness to the British royal family, especially Charles. Oxenberg, who spent most of her life in the British royal family, was once the new Princess of Wales. Kate MiddletonHe claimed that it was spoken behind his back. Oxenberg said that Kate Middleton, who was accepted by the public in a short time after her marriage to Prince William in 2011 and has come to the fore in the family recently, was not so easy to accept.
‘MIDDLE CLASS KATE…HOW FUN’
He alleged that the British royal family members found “very funny” when the press called Middleton “Middle-class Kate” while they were dating William. Meanwhile, according to the Express newspaper’s claim, Camilla, who is currently the Queen Consort, used the phrase “meet the idiots” about Kate Middleton’s family.
‘LOVERS ARE EXPOSED TO THE SAME TREATMENT’: According to Christine Oxeberg’s claim, members of the British royal family take great pleasure in harassing new members of the family. Moreover, this does not only apply to those who enter the family officially through marriage. It is also difficult for those who have a romantic relationship with a family member. According to Oxenberg, not only Meghan Markle, but also Kate Middleton, Prince Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, and Koo Stark, with whom Andrew had a brief affair in the 1980s, were also subjected to the same treatment.
HE DID NOT FIND HIM worthy of his SON
Queen Elizabeth II initially had a crush on Koo Stark, the lover of her favorite son Andrew, Oxenberg claimed. Stark; He is also known as the person who bought Prince Andrew his first pair of jeans. But when it was later revealed by the press that Stark had acted in some adult films, the Queen wanted the relationship to end. Because she thought that someone with such a history was not worthy of her son. According to Oxenberg, Koo Stark and Andrew truly loved each other. They could even be said to be soul mates. But Andrew was not allowed to marry his soul mate.
THEY TREATED EVEN THE BARONES THE SAME WAY
Others who entered the family by marriage suffered the same “treacherous” treatment, Christina Oxenberg argued. One of them was the wife of Marie Christine von Reibniz, the Queen’s cousin, the Prince of Kent, who was actually a baroness of Czech and German ancestry. Oxenberg explained that members of the British royal family enjoyed giving this newlywed young woman a hard time. It is also among his claims that the wife of the Prince of Kent was treated as cynically and disrespectfully as Meghan Markle is today. Moreover, according to her own admission, she was 16 years old at that time and she shared these negative attitudes towards her.
SOLID RULES HAVE MADE SOME MUCH: By the way, the number of “outsiders” in the younger generation of the British royal family, that is, those who belong to non-noble families even though they are wealthy, is not to be underestimated. In the past, royal families predominantly married people of the same social status as themselves. But this situation has changed in modern times, it is even possible to say that there is a softening in the world monarchies. Let’s take a look at those members, starting with the British royal family, joining families and coming out of the public.
HE RELEASED HIS LOVE FOR LOVE
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle come from backgrounds with no titles of ancestry. Middleton is the daughter of a middle-upper class family. Meghan Markle is a former actress. She is also American and has been married and divorced before. In the past, however, such a marriage would never have been allowed. The most striking example in this regard is again in the British royal family. King Edward 8 of England even sacrificed the throne for the sake of marrying the American Wallis Simpson. Likewise, Queen Elizabeth’s sister Margaret had to leave because she was divorced from Major Peter Townsend, whom she fell in love with.
A WEALTH BUSINESS PERSON
But there are also “ordinary” people among the newer generation members of the British royal family for quite some time. One of them is Princess Eugenie’s wife, Jack Brooksbank. Businessman Brooksbank, though wealthy, does not come from a “blue-blooded” family.
FROM A NOBLE FAMILY OF ITALIAN ORIGIN
Edordo Mapelli Mozzi, the wife of his brother Beatrice, comes from a noble family of Italian origin. No news of the family’s behavior towards these two grooms has yet leaked behind closed doors. But their mother-in-law, Sarah Ferguson, is known to love and cherish both of them very much.
The two children of the Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, also married commoners. His daughter Zara, Mike Tindall is a former rugby player. The couple, who got married in 2011, continues a happy marriage with their three children.
MARRIAGE IS OVER
Zara’s older brother, Peter Phillips, is a former recruit from Autumn Canadian. The couple, who parted ways a while ago, has two daughters.
Not only in the British royal family, but also in other monarchies of the world, there are princes, princesses and even queens who grew up in ordinary families. Let’s have a look at them too.
MARRIED TO THE CHIRO PRINCE
Princess Mary, the wife of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, is one of the common people and is not even Danish but Australian. The couple got married in 2004. When her husband becomes king, Mary will be the consort queen, just like Camilla. The tension that Mary had with her sister-in-law, Marie, was on the agenda for a while. Princess Mary is also talked about from time to time, even in front of the cameras, for the tension she has with her mother-in-law, Queen Margrethe.
THE Groom, who came out of the public, was very loved
In the Swedish palace, there are two grooms and one bride who come from outside. Crown Princess Victoria’s wife, Daniel, was her fitness trainer in the past. Then the couple fell in love with each other and got married. Daniel received the title of Pens.
LITTLE Groom Financier
The other son-in-law of the family, financier Christopher O’Neill, is married to Princess Madeleine.
OLD TV STAR BECOME A PRINCESS
Sophie, the bride of the Swedish royal family, does not come from a noble family either. She is a former TV star and has been talked about for her daring images in the past. Sophia Hellqvist, who married Prince Carl Philip in 2015, is today a mother of three and a princess loved by her people.
HE DON’T FROM A NOBLE FAMILY: The mother of three siblings, Queen of Sweden, was born in Germany as Silvia Renate Sommerlath. His father was German and his mother Brazilian. She met the then crown prince Carl Gustaf during the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. They got married in 1976. Carl Gustaf’s story is a little different. He inherited the throne from his grandfather, not from his father. Because the prince’s father died in a plane crash when he was only 9 months old. When his grandfather, King Gustav 6th Adolf, died, Carl Gustav became king and his wife Sylvia became queen. The couple has three children. The heir to the throne is their eldest daughter, Princess Victoria.
IT TAKE TIME TO ACCEPT
Let’s not forget the bride of the “people” in the Norwegian palace. Crown Prince Haakon is happily married to Matte Merit. But Matte’s acceptance by the palace did not come easily. This relationship was not approved by the palace at first due to his past bad habits, being a child beach from his old relationship. But in the end, Matte Merit endeared himself to the king and queen, and then to the public. Haakon and Matte are happily married.
THEY WERE THE HEROES OF A SIMILAR STORY: Although the King and Queen of Norway had a hard time accepting their brides, they had in fact been the protagonists of a similar story in the past. Born Sonja Haraldsen in Oslo, the Queen was the daughter of a merchant. She met King Harald of Norway, who was a prince at that time, in 1959. The couple married in 1968. They also hid their relationship from the public at first, because Sonja did not come from a noble family. When the king died in 1991, his son took the throne, and Sonja became the consort queen, just as Camilla is today.
