Of the living royals my favourite is Princess Margriet, such a wonderful and discrete woman! But I like almost all the others as well (have my reservations on Friso and his wife).

I vote for Maxima! She's such a wonderful princess, full of grace and of sense of duty at the same time. I can't help admiring her!

When it comes to living royals, it's a close tie between Maxima and Beatrix though I think I'd let Maxima win. :) They do so much good work, each of them in her own very special way.
From the Van Vollenhoven family Aimee is my favourite royal. I thinks she is just lovely. And Margriet. And Maurits and Marilene. And...and...and...

Oh well, Maxima it is.
I'm not able to choose properly... :o

I thought I had all the van Vollenhoven sons covered -- I wondered why I had room to add Princess Christina.

I'm very sorry about that omission. I did not mean to exclude them.

I think that Queen Juliana is still my favourite Dutch Queen.

From the living Dutch Royals, Princess Margriet is my number one. Making her own career, doing things the way she thinks she has to do. Staying a member of the Royal House.

In the future I think that Prince Constantijn and Princess Laurentien can become my favourites

I can't choose between my personal favourites so here's my top 3:

1 Queen Juliana, I just love her!
She's been thru so much in her life and always remained a warm and loving person, she gave her all to the people she met. She is still sadly missed!

2 Queen Wilhelmina, again a very strong woman! She became Queen at such a young age and certainly had her share of heardache. She lived for her country and fought her own battle(s) during World War II.
I'm in the middle of reading her biography.

3 Princess Maxima, she's friendly, she's gorgeous, she gave new meaning to the words Royal and Glamour in our at times wet and windy country.
She will make a great Queen one day!
