my favourite royal is definitely the countess of wessex because she seems to be intelligent, has learnt very much since her wedding, supports the royal family and i think especially her husband abd obviously it was real love they married for.
second would be edward because he seems to be really smart and lovely and has never given up although media didn t like him till he found his wife and had a daughter. slowly they recognize what he s really like i think.

in the past it wouldprobably be queen victoria becuase it s amazing how long she reigned and even a period of time is called after ehr so she has to have been a special kind of person!

Princess Marina - an all time favorite! She had such beauty and style....
Queen Alexandra, also for her style and beauty....
Queen Mary, for undying devotion to the Monarchy and for giving the House of Windsor a TRUE ROYAL matriarch.

I think Queen Alexandra. Not only because of her great beauty and her seemingly eternal youth, but she always appeared the picture of grace and dignity, esp. in the face of her cad husband flaunting his mistresses practically in front of her. She also didn't seem to let her physical limitations deter her.

There are a lot of people I like (past and present), but The Queen was always my favourite since my childhood days; I absolutely got hooked by her beauty from old photos from the 1940s and 50s. But, of course, she´s always been one of the most remarkable monarchs in Britain and she´s a fantastic sovereign!
But there are also some Royals, who are not that much in the spotlight
or even forgotten(?), like Prince William of Gloucester, his mother Alice
or the present Duke and Duchess of G. who catch my imagination.

Queen Elizabeth I, because of her role in shaping England into a leading state.

Of all the royals? Diana, bar none, hands down. She was like a bridge between the aloof monarchy and the common person.

Living? Prince William. Luckily, he inherited his mother's compassion and...ahem...good looks.

I would say Prince Wiliam he is a wonderful guy I still don't know how he keeps some of his private life actually private being that he is such from a famous royal family.And he helps the less forunate too which is a plus.

Canute II the Great...

Because he was the only danish king who has tried to rule England. Believe it or not - in the good old days Denmark was a great power ruling Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Northern Germany, England, Greenland and Iceland. Something really bad must have happend since we are one of the smallest countries in the world today.... !

Fav British Royals

My favorite British Royals are (in no particular order)

1) Diana, Princess of Wales
2) Elizabeth I (who did a lot of great things for England...could have turned out a lot worse due to her childhood)
3) George VI
4) Catherine Parr (who managed to survive Henry VIII, established a home for his children, and maintained a strong Protestant faith)

For me it's Queen Elizabeth II, which makes queen so long and she always keeps her head high!

It was such a tragedy how Emperor William I of Germany treated his mother so: Albert, if he had been alive, would have been furious!

Her husband was killed by the Ottamans and her children lost to her. She spent the rest of her life in exile trying to help her people and recover her son and daughter. Known as the Black Queen because of her sorrow.

I'm sorry to have to tell you that my mother is Croation born in Mostar Bosnia in 1940 and she had never heard of this queen! Then again she is no where near as interested as I am!

Queen Elizabeth II. She personalizes everything that monarchy is about.
