I don't think Aegon is the song of Ice and Fire. If as many postulate, Jon Snow is the son Rhaegar and Lyanna, it makes sense that Jon is the song of Ice and Fire being the child of the First Men (Lyanna,Ice) and of Old Valyria (Rhaegar,Fire). I'm not sure Aegon is really long for this world.

Or golden crowns could just be referring to their hair. Who knows!
Cersei will see all of her children die before she goes. $5 on it.

Well, that is certainly a common thought (but don't let Uncle Impe read this or he'll come here and tell you how wrong you are . . . )
On the other hand, it's not out of the question that Tommen might die or that the Dornish may still try to crown Myrcella in absentia or something.

Myrcella represents the Lannisters, a spent force. If Tommen dies and an alternative king is able to build support her chances will disappear. The Storm Lords probably don't give a damn anymore; nor do the Riverlanders. Hell, the Tyrells might decide to drop Tommen if Aegon seems plausable to them -if he accepts a thrice-widowed Margaery, and always assuming she beats the adultery/treason charge.

action against the ironborn has the dual effect of making the tyrells/lanisters look weak and winning the alliance of the redwyns. i see that as her first course of action.
a later marriage of aegon denys dorne the vengeance they seek and arianne is in solid position to make a reprisal. cevase

Somehow she has to marry every king(alive) who is within her reach !
Tyrells had been loyal to Targereyns and still have the largest forces intact. And with Kevan Lannister dead Tyrells wont like facing a mad Cersie any more. So they might shift sides once again as they don't come out to be loyal to anyone else than their own family's cause in the present circumstances.
And as for the golden shrouds and other prophesies Martin doesn't seem to be one who will make even half of them come true. And it would leave a really bad taste in a world so unpredictable and realistic if all these mad prophesies come true.

If not for Maegery's past history with men I'd say that she and Aegon will probably be King and Queen by the end of the entire series. I happen to like Maegery so I hope nothing horrible happens to her or Aegon.
But I'm also curious to see what Littlefinger does with Sansa in the next book....

Back on topic, I think that thus far the prophecy has come true, so I reckon that Myrcella will be crowned Queen of Dorne at some point, and Tommen is clearly already King, so I'm afraid it's not looking good for them or Cersei. Myrcella might die if there is a war over the taking of Dorne (which depends on whether Aegon allies with them or not) and I don't think Tommen will be the King on the Iron Throne by the end of the series, so I think that he will probably be killed at some point. That makes the prophecy very likely, meaning that once Tommen's gone Cersei will probably go beserk.

Tommen may not last long.

Tenous or not Tyrell ARE the ruling force in the current alliance. They have every seat on the small council now that Pycelle and Kevan are dead and Harry Swyft is on his way to Braavos. There nothing in an alliance with Aegon that wouldn't be a step down for them.

I want Arianne to marry Aegon, if nothing else to seal the alliance between Dorne and Aegon.
And Myrcella is on her way back together with the ones who are taking Lady Nymeria and Tyene to King's Landing.

Doran wants revenge for Elia and presumably would prefer a Targaryen (or Martell, I imagine) on the Throne. But why Myrcella? I can see him not wanting to play his whole hand with Arianne, but again, how does Myrcella marrying Aegon help him? Or Aegon for that matter, since the Lannisters aren't going to prefer Aegon & Myrcella over Tommen. The Tyrells won't either, since Margaery would not be Queen.

The only force that might have some counterbalance against the Tyrells is the Faith, which obviously doesn't much care for Cersei. I'm not sure why everyone things Cersei's going to immediately resume control due to Kevan's death, or even her own acquittal at the Trial by the Faith. Mace isn't giving up his ridiculous hand-shaped chair without a fight.
