    @ BOMBO, it's a simple 3 step process: 1) become personal trainer, 2) scout nations w/athletic princesses of marriagable age, 3) secure post as personal trainer to the Princess & let nature take it's course! That should do it! Good Luck, BOMBO, keep us posted!! 🙂

    I did forget one important issue – I'm almost 50 and out of shape. Maybe I could be a royal chef or something.

    Or, BOMBO, you could set your sights on an older, less noble lady, a countess or baroness, possibly a divorcee' & meet her during a vacation on the Riviera, or the Majorcas! Anyway, that's all the advice I know to give you, BOMBO, but a wise man once told me to set my goals high, then negotiate down, but Never settle for Less than my dreams could stand! I never have, you don't either!!
