It's interesting what kids do, and it's even more interesting what royal kids do. 18-year old Meriam Al Khalifa made headlines when she eloped with a 25 year old US Marine. Meriam was a member of the royal family of Bahrain looking for some action and she sneaked out o the country with her boyfriend, a US Marine stationed there. She was a Muslim. He was Mormon. The relationship: starcrossed from the beginning.
Meriam sneaked out of the country posing as a US marine. They got married in Vegas. NBC made a made for TV movie called the Princess and the Marine. He went home to the US and got demoted from the military and began a parking attendent. She partied hard in Vegas. They got divorced. What an adventure!
