Are you referring to the fact they each have a past?

I would agree that she may feel more at ease with these two, who themselves, have come out of 'situations' not experienced by say Mary or Mathilde.

well, with Maxima I talk about common language and similar cultures ('cuz latinamerican culture is extremely influenced by the spanish) and about MM I'm talking about the CPs who are from the same country as their husbands and so are much more known and there have been much more knowledge about their "pasts" as you said

Haakon and MM are good friends with Kyril and Rosario of Bulgaria and Cristina & Iñaki of Spain, they spend their holidays often together:

(Hola)

And well, Cristina is also very close to Alia of Jordan, who visited Mallorca in the summer with her family and later the Urdangarins returned the favor going to Jordan:

Letizia and Maxima are friends. I saw videos of them having a great time speaking with each other at the Danish wedding (both before and after the ceremony) and poor W-A looked very lost amidst all that Spanish-speaking!

I hope that they're or will be. Maxima and Mathilde are good friends too.

What about Mary, MetteMarit or Victoria - I mean with which other royal lady they are good friends?

Sorry I've missed it. Which royal is a realy good friend of the Queen Elizabeth II?

Do you really think they are friends? How many times did they meet? I´m almost sure they saw for the first time in the Danish wedding, and the fact that they speak the same language makes them closer, but i´m not sure about their friendship, maybe in a long time.

They met each other more often then at the public occasions that we are aware of (wedding of Frederik & Mary, wedding of Felipe & Letizia and the silver wedding of Henri & Marie-Therese). There is a sort of 'club' of european heirs that meets regulary. And since the recent marriages there is a simular club for their wives. Of course they can meet more often in private to, like MM and Haakon who came sailing in The Netherlands for example, or Mary and Frederik who were received at castle het Oude Loo.

after some years of having started this thread, from what i have seen of the royal outings, activities and events...

maxima seems really close with masako, mathilde and mette marit. mathilde was also seen with masako talking in a very friendly athmosphere, masako was invited by the dutch royals this summer (first trip abroad after her depression) and mette marit sailed with maxima in the groene draek. maxima is also godmother to little sverre magnus. mathilde and maxima performed a couple of royal duties together in which they seemed to be really at ease and i also saw quite a close friendship between maria teresa of luxembourg and maxima during the visit the grand dukes paid to the netherlands, perhaps of both being south american. letizia should be as well good friends with her, enforced by the fact they both speak spanish and from what members said.

mette marit seems to be to me one of the most adaptable royals. for a girl who comes from a modest, middle class background, it's amazing the number of friends she made. rosario nadal, marie chantal, infanta cristina, victoria of sweden, camilla, maxima and mary among others we dont know... she is even godmother to marie chantal's youngest son, odysseas and to prince christian.

it really surprised me to see that princess sibilla is friends with pavlos and marie chantal. there are photos of them doing some christmas shopping together in london.

i also read that the dutch royals and the jordanian royals are really close and that queen beatrix invited queen noor after the death of king hussein to spend time in the netherlands. it was seen clearly at the state visit by the jordanian king and queen this year.

prince guillaume of luxembourg and phillipe and mathilde are definitely close, after him being prince emmanuel's godfather.

I read somewhere that P Albert of Monaco and P Charles of GB like each other, they share interest in environment.

Queen Beatrix is also close to Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath + family, as are the van Vollenhovens.

Prof. Pieter van Vollenhoven (husband of Princess Margriet) should be friends with Prince Laurent of Belgium, since he was one of the witnesses at the religious wedding of the prince. The van Vollenhovens are also good friends with Archduke Michael and Archduchess Christiane of Austria and with Fuerst Constantin-Alois of Lowenstein-Wertheim-Rosenberg and his wife Anastasia (nee Pss of Prussia).

The Prince of Orange also befriended Count Franz-Clemens zu Waldburg-Zeil-Hohenems and his wife Countess Stephanie zu Waldburg-Zeil-Hohenems née Countess von Blanckenstein, he is godfather to their daughter Leonie

The late Prince Claus was friends with the Berleburgs and with the Prince of Hesse-Kassel. Another of his friends was Prince Bismarck and his wife Elisabeth. Their children befriended the children of Claus. Another friend: Princess Alexandra zu Oettingen-Oettingen und Oettingen-Wallerstein née zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn

Also, Crown Princess Mary and Princess Laurentien.

I did not mention but Princess Larentien and Prince Constantijn also went to Prince Christians christening and Mary had before attended a function with the Dutch couple and they seem to get along very well.

Plus, they seem to have a good relationship, since the Princes of Belgium helped Maxima a lot when she was staying - for a short period - in Brussels, before it was revealed that she was WA's wife-to-be (or at least getting the training)

Queen Rania announced that she was breastfeeding? Wow, I thought Muslims were discreet about that sort of stuff, but I guess she's not.

I have heard about Diana and the Spanish Royals being close, and also the Spanish Royals and the Greeks.

I don't know if they went because of a real friendship or out of courtiousness. The Dutch court probably received an invitation, as probably did most other European courts, and decided to send Constantijn and Laurentien.

I believe the couple did receive a personal invitation for the wedding of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. The one for the Prince of orange and Princess Maxima was lost in the post, according to the official version.

Well it was an answer to a question.

Moreover I don't see why muslims would have an issue with breastfeeding......
