the best ones in my opinion, talking about design, are are the ones of the united kingdom (really elegant and royal), the netherlands, jordan and denmark. :)

however, although some others have a poor design are quite good when it comes to information (the spanish one or the norwegian one).

and some others are just perfect combining a good design and lots of info of the upcoming events and photos (united kingdom, the netherlands)

I agree that the Royal House of Wondsor site is one of the best. So well presented, and with such varying information on the immediate and extended Royal family, it's highly useful. The links to other related topics are also very interesting, and of high-quality.

The British site is by far the best.
The graphic and colours are very good. In each "sub-home page" (I mean the home pages of each different section) there are at least two or three menus (it's impossible not to see the argument you're looking for).
Of course the amount of information provided is huge.
There are many sections. Among them - here I'm listing the most unusual - there are a historical section (containing short biographies of English, Scottish and British monarchs), a media centre section (with diary of royal engagements, the Court Circular and guidelines for media people), the Royal Collection site with many pictures, and even a recruitment section. A condensed version of the site is available in both Gaelic and Welsh.
The montly magazine, Royal Insight, which also reply to a number of questions from the public.
The site offers the possibility of buying tickets on line.

They also have many other sites, such as The Prince of Wales, Balmoral Castle, the Royal Collection Shop, the Windsor Shop, Sandringham. All these sites (besides the Prince's one) have an on line shop.

The British is the most comprehensive. Denmark I'd say is second although the English side doesn't have as much info as the Danish side. (I don't read Danish :( )

The Danish side has photos from the lives of all the Glucksborg monarchs, an interesting find!

there's no single website for the Jordanian royal family.
The websites for individual members are:

King Abdullah: http://www.kingabdullah.jo
Queen Rania: http://www.queenrania.jo
Queen Noor: http://www.queennoor.jo
Prince Hassan: http://www.elhassan.org
Princess Basma: http://www.princessbasma.jo
Prince Hamzah: http://www.princehamzah.jo
Princess Haya: http://princesshaya.net
Princess Haya's Team Harmony site: http://www.teamharmony.net
The Late Queen Alia: http://www.queenalia.org

I dont think I've left anyone out.
I also like the British monarchy's site best. Its modern yet simple and easy to use. I dont like websites that have too much going on at the same time. Too much clutter can be quite confusing and frustrating. But you dont want to be too simple either. The Swedish royal family's website is good enough but the english version has no useful information on the latest news.
Queen Rania's website is a bit cluttered but I find it very useful. It has links to all the organizations that the Queen supports, is a patron or board member of.
It has updated news and pictures. And also has a personal statement from Rania herself.
Princess Haya's site is also quite good. Its simple and elegant, with seperate sections devoted to herself, her husband, her siblings, the first ladies of Jordan etc.
The design of Queen Noor's site is good but the site is rarely updated, has no picture gallery of the Queen's latest activities and many pics in the family album dont work.

The British Monarchy's website is by far the best one, in my opinion. It is extremely professional and elegant, so well executed - easy to navigate but with so much information! I love the search function for the official engagements calendar too, very professional & nice! Nice design, colours, menus etc. And I love the "Royal Insight" every month, a favourite read of mine.

Nr 2 for me is the Danish Royal Court's website. It is also very professional, easy to navigate and elegant to look at.

A big thumbs down from me goes to the Swedish Royal Court's website, in my taste their website is lousy and so out of date. But hopefully the new website will be better.

I'd say British also. Denmark's is def. 2nd for me too.....but I wish the English site would have a little more (I can look at the Danish site but not understand most of it- same with most sites).

The British site is the best in terms of design and information. That's who I voted for. The other sites are well done in their languages but the English version of those sites don't have as much information, or isn't updated as currently as in their languages.

In terms of quality, design, and content the British Royal Family's is the best hands down. Second is the Danish Royal Family's, next would be the Dutch Royal Family's. I think the Dutch RF's website could be alot better though if they added a royal calender of events like British and Danish RF does. Aside from that, I really like the lay out and style of the website.

I think the Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish RF websites are a bit dated in terms of design and style.

My vote goes to the British site..it's easy to use and has a simple but attractive layout.
I think that the spanish site really needs updating..especially some of the photographs

It was a close call between Denmark, Uk and the Netherlands. Voted the Netherlands though. I just love the 'children's page' where you can download something to build the golden carriage out of paper.

The main things that I look for in the website are:
- Biographical information
- Basic information on the Royal House
- Information on the Royal Orders and Decorations

My "top 4" choices were Denmark, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Norway. The website of the Spanish royals is good also, but it just seems to be lacking in design like those of Denmark, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. Sweden is by far the worst. Little information, no design effort at all. They really need to "modernize" it. The Dutch website was recently "modernized" and is wonderful.
