That is unless you're royal. In that case, if you haven't publicly spread yourself around to a dozen ladies a year, led some girl along for 7 years under the watchful eyes of your entire nation, or popped out a couple kids before your 21 birthday (no offense Louis, I love your little family) then you must be gay. Yawn...yawn...yawn!
It is both annoying and tiresome that a man of Guillaume's caliber must constantly have his sexuality questioned. I think that perhaps Guillaume got a taste of being followed around and having his relationship paraded in the tabloids when he dated Pia. I sincerely doubt that it is an experience that he enjoyed or would want to repeat (the same can't be said for Pia). He doesn't have a string of illegitimate children or women lining up to tell stories of lustful adventures or heartbreak. I don't take this as a sign that Guillaume is gay. In my opinion this is a sign that Guillaume is a man of integrity who values his role, the people in his life and his personal space. Guillaume isn't leading the life of a monk...He is not spending all of his non-working hours sitting at home...He is definitely sweet but surely not innocent... :)
I wouldn't care if Guillaume was gay. I would still love Luxembourg. I would still respect him and view him as capable. I would still wish him well. I would still hope and pray that he is able to find happiness in all areas of his life. There are undoubtedly people who would view it as a serious flaw in his character, but I am not one of them.
Guillaume is not gay. He simply has decided not to parade his private relationships around in public. Félix and Claire are out and about together all the time (I really do mean all-the-time) in Rome, but you don't see him dragging her to events that have press coverage. The same can be said for Guillaume. The Grand-Ducal Family is able to keep their relationships private through a combination of lack of overall interest in every move they make, discretion, and commonsense.
Why am I mentioning all of this? It's made the tabloids in Luxembourg that people over at TRF apparently believe that Guillaume is gay. I actually like most of the posters over at TRF. I think the article really is incorrect in stating that it's the best royal forum and fails to note that only a small portion of their large membership base is actually active. I didn't really see any pros and cons of his sexuality being debated.
This assumption of gayness (which is incorrect) is based largely on Guillaume's apparent inability to find a woman who has graced the pages of Slitz (sorry Carl Philip but you had to expect the backlash). Okay, maybe that isn't the exact reason, but you get my point. Which is a point that I think the author of the article is also trying to make. At least, Privat took the time to, seemingly, defend Guillaume against the gay rumors that plague him because he doesn't date in the open.
I check the headlines on Privat and Promi but I generally don't give them much thought. This is largely because I know for certain that much of the gossip about their personal lives is inaccurate. Félix is still referred to as "der playboy" when he appears to have developed into a serial monogamist some time ago. I'm not doubting that he was at one point, um, let's just say enjoying being an attractive young man but it's not who he is right now. Guillaume is not a sugar coated monk but he's not a raging playboy.
Oh deary me, how those delicious Luxembourg princes love to drive us crazy by not keeping us dutifully informed about their private lives. ;)
