The Simpsons has been host to hundreds of guest stars. As with any long-running popular weekly series, it has featured many vastly celebrated figures of the acting world. The show has also been home to the fairly recurrent instance of public figure cameos.
Besides the obvious onslaught of acting talent that has been involved with the program over its 29-season run, The Simpsons has had guest stars such as astronaut Buzz Aldrin, theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking, famed musicians such as Lionel Richie and Willie Nelson, and more.

In 2003, when the characters travelled to the United Kingdom, former Prime Minister Tony Blair was featured in the series, clearly promoting Britain on the world stage. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles also made appearances in the program, the Queen guest starring in approximately three episodes. Prince Harry also has appeared. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have yet to feature as guests on the show.
Most recently, European royalty has found its way yet again into the television spotlight as the American sitcom has taken the characters on a journey to Denmark. The story involves Grampa Simpson and his desire to take advantage of the free healthcare offered in Europe to pay for a supposed necessary operation he needs to be completed.
While in Copenhagen, the Simpson family tours the city, the young Lisa Simpson haphazardly running into Prince Christian in the square of Amalienborg Palace.
Prince Christian of Denmark is Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary’s eldest child at twelve years of age. He is second in line to the Danish throne behind his father.
Towards the end of the episode, the young girl daydreams of one day marrying the prince, the two of them waving to the crowds atop the palace balcony on their wedding day.
This guest appearance by the young prince has been generally well-received by the public many cheering on their favourite character for her future good luck.
