Eligible princes

“An Ordinary Girl is not prepared for a Royal Future” (Loesje, 1998) … But we can always keep on dreaming about it!

In Dutch I think the Loesje-slogan was “Een gewone meid is niet op een koninklijke toekomst voorbereid”. Looking at the year, 1998, it probably had something to do with the first Dutch royal marriage since 1975, the marriage of Prince Maurits van Oranje-Nassau van Vollenhoven and Marilène van den Broek. Being only 5th in line of succession to the throne at the time, it was clear that Prince Maurits would likely not have a real royal future. The interest in this first marriage of the new generation was however pretty big and of course there was somewhat of a discussion about the role the couple would be playing within the royal family in the future.

One of the first features on my new website in 1998 was a page with eligible princes and princesses, or royal descendants. Here is a much longer and less detailed list of princes. But I hope you still enjoy it. They’re all over 18, and younger than 50, and to my knowledge unmarried. They will be removed as soon as they are engaged or have entered religious life.
