The love of royal celebrities has always been staged for the world to see. Weddings that are only dreamed about and fantasized by common society are made reality by royal couples. Carriages, horses, a lovely princess becoming the wife of a handsome prince and being whisked away to his castle—this may seem like a fairy tale to some, but for a select few this kind of dream is reality. Let's take a peek at some of the romances of a few royal couples. How many of these actually lived "happily ever after"?
Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson
Edward VIII fell in love with an American divorcee in 1936. Because such a romance was not be permitted for a king, he abdicated the British throne in order to marry the woman he loved. This was a very controversial subject indeed. Some saw it as hopelessly romantic while others were greatly appalled by his actions. The couple married, left England and lived for the most part in France.
