Maybe Queen Beatrix? She was greeting HM at the Jubilee Dinner with a very warm embrace.

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and Queen Sonja of Norway in particular are incredibly good friends. They've been skiing together in Norway for years now and there are so many pictures of them having a really good time.

I have always thought that HM is closest to King Constantine II of Greece and the Greek branch, probably because of the DoE's greek ancestry. Also King Baudoin of Belgium, whose funeral she attended herself, maybe?

I remember seeing a lovely picture from the Olympics of Princess Anne hugging and laughing with Princess Benedikte and Queen Anne-Marie at an event. I'll see if I can find it. It really was a great photo.

Edit: Found it. Love it.

I remember reading about that several times on this forum. The greeting between them was indeed very, very warm. I think they're indeed friends with one another.

The picture is from the Olympics where the daughters of Princess Anne and Princess Benedikte were competing. My guess is that this picture is from when Zara won her silver medal.

Not so sure about Mary and Kate being friends either... they have only met each other once probably, frederik and mary didn't even attend the royal wedding in london. on top of that, the ages between both couples are different, so i doubt they have very much in common..

I posted that in October last year (I was new to the forums at the time), and I have learnt lots since then. Now, I think that Mary and Catherine don't really know each other that well since they have only met once, and that they're probably not good friends.

Princess Cristina of Brazil (neé Princess of Ligne) and Archduchess Marie Astrid of Austria (neé Princess of Luxembourg).

They are first cousins and very close to each other.

I've been wondering about them too. I remember reading somewhere (it might've been on this forum) that Infanta Leonor and Infanta Sofia have met the Dutch Princesses. From that, I think Maxima and Letizia might be friends.

I also wonder if Queen Margrethe is friends with Elizabeth II as she appeared on the documentary "Our Queen". I would imagine that Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Victoria and Crown Prince Frederik are friends as I remember reading that their families are close.

I think Princess Beatrix and Elizabeth II are friends as well.

QMII could not have stayed with QEII during WWII as the Danish royal family remained in Denmark throughout the war. I am sure the 2 ladies do know each other since QMII studied in England, met her husband in London, has a sister who lives in London and QMII is known to shop annually in London so she has had plenty of opportunities to meet privately with QEII,,,,,just not during the war.

Ahead of the Prince William's wedding Queen Margrethe II stayed at Buckingham Palace as a guest. That makes me think Queen Margreth and Queen Elizabeth have a good informal relationship.

In regards to QMII and QEII, I too think they're friends (or at least have a nice relationship to each other), but the one I really can imagine QMII having the time of her life with is Prince Philip. I think the two of them have the same sort of humour and on the pictures I have seen of them together, they always look like they're happy to see each other. I particularly love this picture.
