I think Princess Märtha Louise breastfed as well, I can't see why she didn't when CP M-M did, since Princess Mätha Louise had less engagements when Maud Angelica was a baby. But then again breastfeding is common in Norway royalty or not.

Queen Victoria's view...

I found this in "An Uncommon Woman" by Hannah Pakula, a biography of Crown Princess Victoria of Prussia (later the Empress Frederick of Germany), Queen Victoria's eldest daughter:

"By the time her fourth child was born Vicky had enough self-confidence to defy her mother and mother-in-law and nurse the child herself. "I am sorry to find that Vicky's determination to nurse her baby makes you so angry," Queen Victoria's sister Feodora wrote to the Queen, "the Queen of Prussia feels the same as you. I have no opinion as I have always felt it a duty for a mother to nurse her child if she can."

And Vicky herself: "It is too strange that crowned heads have sworn such enmity to this very innocent occupation."

"Queen Victoria not only disapproved of Vicky's nursing her baby, but was furious at her for influencing sister Alice to nurse her newborn as well. The Queen had thought that Alice, like herself, "disliked the disgusting details of the nursery... 'all and every one of which Vicky delights in', and was pained to discover otherwise. "there is in everything the animal side of our nature...", Queen Victoria wrote to Alice.

"... but this - when one is high-born - one can avoid and ought to avoid... I maintain...that a child can never be as well nursed by a lady of rank and nervous and refined temperament - for the less feeling and the more like an animal the wet nurse is, the better for the child.

"It hurts me deeply that my own 2 daughters should set at defiance the advice of a Mother of 9 children, 46 years old."

"Both Vicky and Alice had wasted countless words defending their "awful and disgusting" preference for nursing their own children. "It does make my hair stand on end to think that my 2 daughters should turn into cows" the Queen said."
...............

Needless to say that both daughters only felt secure in standing up to their mother because they were far enough away in Germany to avoid a direct confrontation!

I think that Queen Rania breastfeeds, she had said in one of the interviews that she plans her schedule, so she can breastfeed princess salma (at that time) every three hours, and I suppose that she breastfeeds prince hashem as well

Good for her!
Rania is one of the busiest royal women around but I think that when it comes to her kids, she knows that they are her priority.

Are you sure on this? I recall a few months after Princess Amalia was born Princess Maxima was photographed smoking and she also had a baby bottle in her hand that carried milk.

A lot of mothers do both. They often bring bottles when they are going somewhere (i.e. cafes, restaurants and other public places) where nursing might be difficult and somewhere where people might find it offensive or the mother finds it uncomfortable to nurse in public.

I remember watching a mini series about the Swedish king Gustav III and his queen Sophie Madeleine. The queen wanted to breastfeed her son, but the king said no. Gustav III and Sophie Madeleine were our royal couple back in the 18th century.

And it took a long time before a royal woman could be allowed to breastfeed her own children. If our crown princess Margareth breastfed her children in the beginning of the 20th century, she was a rebel. Even her daughter-in-law Sibylla wouldn't breastfeed her son, our current king Carl XVI Gustaf, when he was a baby.

When Tsarina Alexandra Feodorovna tried to brestfeed her first daughter Olga. One of the first tries ended with the Tsarina brestfeeding the son of the wet-nurse and the wet-nurse feeding Olga.
