Prince Charles, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward all received a yes when they proposed to Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, respectively.

But royal fans have wondered what would’ve happened if the royal siblings received a no when they proposed to their wives. On the online forum site Quora, Gillian Schifreen said that what would happen would be similar to what Queen Elizabeth II’s father did with Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.

Bowes-Lyon turned the Queen’s father down several times but he continued to pursue her until she finally said yes. The couple eventually had a happy marriage.

“Or you move on. Rumor has it that Harry proposed to Chelsy Davy but she turned him now wanting to live her life in the spotlight… He moved on,” she said.

Prince Harry eventually dated Meghan Markle, and the couple ended up in marriage. This month, they will be celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

Eileen Wood, a real estate assistant, said that what would happen if the male royals were rejected by their prospective wives would depend on who they are and their position in the British monarchy.

“If you’re Prince Albert of York, you keep asking until she says yes. If you’re Prince Charles, you marry her sister a few years later and be miserable for several more years… Then you marry the woman you originally wanted to marry, who wasn’t either of the sisters,” she said.

Wood is talking about Princess Diana’s older sister, Sarah Spencer, who was the first one to get into a relationship with Prince Charles. After their split, Spencer introduced Prince Charles to her younger sister.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana tied the knot in 1981, but their marriage didn’t last very long. Eleven years later, the couple announced their separation to the public. Four years later, Prince Charles and Princess Diana finalized their divorce.

In 2005, the Prince of Wales wed Camilla Parker Bowles in a civil ceremony.
