That being said, here are some of the most controversial royal love-stories around the world, who surely stunned the world in some way or the other.

01/ King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn


Being the most classic examples of controversial royal couples, is King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, whose union compelled an entire kingdom to convert their religions from Roman Catholicism to a newly established Church of England. Dating back to the 16th century, when the King decided to divorce his wife Catherine of Aragon, because she couldn’t birth the son, he chose to remarry his mistress, Anne Boleyn. However, his plea was denied by the Catholic Church, which forced him to take the drastic step of introducing another Church of England in the country.

02/ Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson


Many would recognize Edward VIII as the King who abdicated the throne in order to marry the love of his life, Wallis Simpson, a two-time American divorcee. Theirs was a royal love-story that not only shocked the world but also changed the entire line of British succession, making them one of the most scandalous royal couples of all time.

03/ Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco


In 1956, when Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer III of Monaco tied the knot, the entire world couldn’t lift their eyes away from this power couple. No one ever imagined a renowned actress of her demeanour could ever become the Grace of Monaco. That being said, the Royal couple seemingly had a healthy relationship, until unfortunately she passed away in a car crash in 1982.

04/ Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend


Talk about controversial royal couples and Princess Margaret and Peter Townsend seem to have made one of the most scandalous romantic pair of all times. In 1953, when the rumours about the two broke out in the public, it caused quite the stir in the royal household. From the Queen to the Parliament to the Church of England, everyone denied their plea to marry and placed a condition stating that Princess Margaret would lose all her royal privileges, in case she married divorcee. That being said, according to BBC, she later made an announcement stating that she will no longer marry Peter Townsend.

05/ Prince Albert and Charlene Wittstock


Although they’re still happily married and going strong together for over 9 years, reportedly the Monégasque Princess Charlene almost became a runaway bride on the eve of her wedding to Prince Albert. Allegedly, the Princess made many attempts to flee the wedding. Once she tried to hide out in Paris' South African embassy while trying on her wedding dress. Another time, she reportedly tried fleeing to Nice, France, when Monegasque officials took away her passport. However, after lots of persuasion, she finally agreed to marry and they have been married ever since.

06/ Prince Carl Philip and Sofia Hellqvist

But after rows of backlash, the couple finally married in 2015 and are now blessed with two children.
