The Spanish Royal Family seem to be closest to the Greek cousins and the Bulgarian RF ,in the past they were close with the Princely Family of Monaco.I'm not sure if Letizia really has any close friends with the European Royal houses.

I don't think a decade or more of an age gap precludes friendship. I'm 52 and very good friends with a 35 year old. I'm sure Sophie Wessex is just as interested in fashion as Catherine of Cambridge, and though her children are a little older, they aren't adults, indeed I think she could give advice to Kate on what to expect as George and Charlotte get older.

Mette-Marit and Beatrice Borromeo are friendly. Privately Queen Elizabeth enjoys friendly relationships with Queen Margarethe and Beatrix of the Netherlands. There was some socialising with Constantine and Anne-Marie as well.

In 2012, we heard that Silvia had spent time at Highgrove with C&C, but only when the KIng referred to the meeting / weekend when at an official dinner in Stockholm when C&C were visiting.
I don't think Mary and Kate are particularly close. At least not yet, that may come. They have AFAIK only met a handful of times and mostly on the job.
Mary is however very close to Victoria and Daniel and Mette-Marit Haakon and Queen Maxima and King W-A.
And in recent years obviously also King Felipe, Queen Mathilde and Prince Albert. - Certainly close enough to visit them privately and appearing very much at ease in their company.
And more discreetly though also Marie-Chantal.
- The names here are those I will personally label as "confirmed personal friends".

I agree. As you get older (30+) the age-gap doesn't mean that much.

QEII is also a very good friend of Queen Sonja.
