Grabbing the attention of the mainstream media, the adventures of Prince Harry and the British royal family have cast a shadow over monarchies the world over, whose brilliance they would be sad to miss.
A brief overview of the palaces reveals royal controversies…

Princess Martha Louise of Norway has already raised eyebrows by claiming to communicate with angels and the animal kingdom.
But it was her engagement to the famous shaman Durek Verret that pushed her out of the royal fold.
In fact, the princess has given up her royal commitments in 2022 to focus on the alternative medicine company she runs with her fiancé.
The latter had already embarrassed the Norwegian royal family on several occasions, for example by claiming that cancer was a choice and that a “mind enhancer” medal, which was sold on his website, helped him recover from COVID-19.

In Thailand, King Maha Vajiralongkorn has proven time and time again to be an eccentric by contemporary royal standards.
Besides his love for crop tops and the makeshift armadillo, his dog Fu Fu’s appointment as Air Marshal of the Royal Thai Armed Forces that perhaps surprises the most.
Foo Foo died in 2015, and his body was cremated after four days of Buddhist ceremonies, prompting a flurry of veiled criticism on social media.
King Maha Vajiralongkorn is the richest monarch on the planet today, with a fortune of over $40 billion.
Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II has decided that four of her grandchildren will no longer be princes and princesses, including 10-year-old Athena.
Their father, Prince Joachim, has claimed he was “very sad” to see his children “mistreated” in this way.
Margrethe II, also known as Daisy, claims to have acted not only as a queen, but also as a grandmother in making this decision.
However, she admits to underestimating the implications.
It must be said that this is not the first royal family to do a slimming treatment.
Since titles come with a number of duties and responsibilities, it can sometimes be best to concentrate them in fewer individuals.
