My favorites:

1. Annette-In my opinion she is the most loveliest.
2. Laurentien-Despite her numerous fashion faux paus, I admire her dedication to promote literacy.
3.Máxima
4.Marilène
5.Mabel
6.Anita
7.Aimée

In all fairness, Anita and Aimée are at the bottom of my list simply because I have not had as much exposure to form a stronger opinion compared to the others.

Hmmm, I guess this would be my list. But it's difficult, that's for sure! I really do love Marilène and Maxima, so they really should be at the first two places of my list. :-)

I voted Laurentien, she seems so down to earth, genuine and fun! My second vote would go to Maxima, for almost the same reasons.

however, i think floris looks cute. he seems sweet and a nice person to talk to... they seem to make a nice couple, they are both quite shy but seem to get along really well.[/QUOTE]

Yeah you're right. i overstated it. he does seem very nice. a laid back guy. its really kind of sad for him that he has a super handsome brother like Maurits, he doesnt compare very well.

Floris really ought to spend a little time in the sun before his wedding though. he looks so pale.

I think you meant, South America, Sara. :)

I love your enthusiasm for the Royals.

I vote for Maxima. She seems a very down to earth person (from what we can tell at least), and she seems to be very attached to her latin roots. She is proud of being an Argentinian. My vote is for Maxima.

The poll used to be most beautiful? Well now it's favorite so my vote is for Maxima.
I think she has a great personality and she obviously is intelligent, loves her family, gets along with her in-laws and in proving her dedication to her adopted country by her grasp of the language and her public duties.

I don't have anything against the other daughters-in-law but I would prefer Maxima for Queen, even if I don't live in the Netherlands. :) :)

At an event where it was just the van Vollenhoven women; Anita, Annette, and Aimee seemed to get along just fine and acted as if they were all pretty close.

My choice for Orange would of course be Maxima! For some reason my heart never warmed toward Laurentien and while Mabel looked great and happy on Queen's Day, I cannot get over her bow-infested wedding dress!

van Vollenhoven women: I really like Marilene and Aimee. I don't know a lot about Anita and Annette so I can't judge. I'm a little biased when it comes to Aimee because my sister has the same name!

My favorite daughter in law is Aimee. I think she is so elegant and pretty. I enjoy looking at pictures of her. She seems so sweet!

Someone mentioned that Floris is not a good looking guy. Personally, I think he and Maurits (Sp??) are the best looking. Unfortunately, the other two are not as attractive.

However, I do give them credit that they have married beautiful women that seem to adore them. All these guys chose elegant women that are a credit to the Dutch Royal Family.

I think Maxima is the most beautiful and elegant, even though she makes some mistakes. I like her smile and charisma.
