Favourite European heir to the throne?

Idea courtesy of Chatleen. :)

Who is your favourite European heir to the throne? Who works the hardest to define his/her role and to serve his/her monarchy, people and country?

CP Victoria,
As the only "girl in the crowd" She's a hard working young woman and wants to represent sweden in athe best possible way. She not flighty or a party hardy type running around with playboys and boozing with the jet set.

For me, the Prince of Asturias is the one who faces the job in a most professional way. According to La Zarzuela, between 1996 and 2003, Felipe has participated in an average of 380 official acts per year (that is more than one per day) and that does not include the hours he spends in the office, the preparation of the acts and all the lunches, dinners or suppers of work... When he was recently in Barcelona with Letizia, there was a republican businessman who was so impressed by his perfectionism, that confessed he would just vote the Prince, if there was an election for President!...

Thanks for setting up the poll, Alexandria :)

My own choice is Crown Princess Victoria: Since I this spring started to be a more dedicated royal watcher Crown Princess Victoria has really grown on me. She works hard, and she seems to communicate easily with everyone, whether it is "ordinary" people or foreign heads of state. Also I think, she has a tuff task ahead of her in maintaining the monarchy in Sweden as a popular institution. She really has to define a new role for herself (I really don't see her father as an example to follow ;-) ).

I had a hard time choosing. I like them all and think that they all do a wonderful job in their own way. In the end, I voted for Prince Haakon. I think that he does wonderful things for Norway, and always seems to do it with ease. You never see him looking like he'd rather be somewhere else, he always has a smile on his face or and always seems so happy.

That must be Frederik - mostly 'cause he's the heir here and he's really great! He'll really do a great job, and together with Mary he's definitely going to be doing awesome new things and so!

Well said, Chatleen. I agree with you. If I had to pick a second person, I would say Haakon. He and his country are a perfect fit and he has excellent role models in his parents.

I voted for Willem-Alexander and for Guillaume, because i think both of them are working hard to modernize the royal family and to appeal to their countrymen.
