I vote for Queen Mathilde of the Belgians as the most caring/kind royal.

As the least caring/kind royal, I'd vote for Queen Letizia of Spain, or her predecessor, Queen Sofia.

Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands. The name Beatrix means: "She who brings happiness" and I think that is true. The way how she treats people, her ever broad smile and warm attitude, also to her daughters-in-law is exemplaric. "What did you say, sweetie?": http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/P...7C55zsa2Bx.jpg.

I have no way of knowing who is really caring because I don't know them away from the media images. I suspect they are ALL lovely women.

My sense is that Queen Mathilde seems to exude warmth.

I would agree with Duc_et_Pair about Queen Beatrix particularly with regard to her relationships with her daughters-in-law. She seems to be the most generous of spirit.

But these are 2 Queen (well 1 Queen and 1 former Queen).

Of the current crop of princesses:

HGD Stephanie seems simple and sweet.

IMO the kindest one is Victoria.... I think she makes you feel confortable and welcome in her presence... The sweetest seems Mathilde though... But she is queen now, therefore my vote goes to Victoria... (the poll is about princesses it seems...)

They all have their sweet and caring sides IMO, but CP Masako's smile wins my vote in this poll.

For kindness, I must say Queen Mathilde - for me she just has this aura of calm, and seems to radiate kindness. For sweetness, Princess Marie - i recently rewatched the documentary on her that aired prior to her marriage to Prince Joachim - she comes across as very bubbly, funny and very sweet.

I don't know why but your choice surprised me and then I went back and looked and read a little andI have to agree, she is both kind and sweet.

My first thoughts went straight to HGD Stephanie with her sweet smile and serene demeanor, so I guess for me it's a tie.

I wouldn't say that. There are pictures of her embracing people after a terrorist attack in Spain.

I think the question is a bit useless. Better question: which royal is not kind/caring, etc.? Ik can hardly think of any...

That is true and I've seen the Spanish royal ladies embracing other families of soldiers/police killed in action.

I've not met any of them in person, I only know them from photos. Unless we know them personally how can we assess their true personalities?

Queen Sofia is said to have gone out of her way to go over and embrace the widow or mother (I can't remember which) whilst out on a private shopping trip. As far as I recall there were no photographers or cameras around so to me it shows she's just as caring when it's not in front of the cameras

True, I think the older ones where there has been a long life lived partly in public, and books etc written about them, there is a bit more knowledge. But with younger royals who have been say 10 years in the job, of course they are going to be photographed looking all sweet and smiley, and we're going to be told that they are lovely warm people.. but its hard to decipher how true that might be.

After reading back and looking at the start of this thread I can only say "Who Knows"? We only see that sort of thing when they are 'on duty' and we cannot tell who is the sweetest and kindest Princess just from a photo op. Mathilde, Maxima, Mary and Letizia have had enough "coverage" to make a sort of educated guess, but Stephanie, Charlene and even Catherine do not have a really high profile yet.

The important thing is that we are basing our opinion of the worth of these women by what they "look" like. Does she look sweet? Does she look kind? She may be utterly professional and then when she's home she could sit down and write a cheque to help a charity she visited that day. She could also be an utter b***h who comes home and says "thank God that's over for the year, I just get tired of all these people moaning and I haven't had lunch with the girls in weeks". The point is, we'd never know!

Some of the charities they support are not conducive to photo ops, e.g. Camilla's work with rape victims. We've heard she's done some sterling work in this area but we have little information or photos about it.

I agree with all the comments of the "How can we know?" and "Who can tell?" variety. After all, for most modern royals, especially females, work with many charities and causes (and being photographed while doing it) plays a large part in their public persona. So I don't know how I would have voted in the original poll.

I've always had a soft spot for Queen Mathilde and she strikes me as being a kind and sweet person. However, someone who is a Royal (though not a Princess) for whom actions over decades have spoken louder than any words or PR, is the Duchess of Kent.

She is a Princess, and a royal duchess. I think she's a nice person, but I find her a bit "gushy" from what I have read of her. But that's just an Englsih manner that I dont much like.. I think it is fair to say that she has backed up her words with actions, in taking on charty work that most royals dont do, like the Samaritans etc.
I think that if Diana had been a bit lower down the Royal hierarchy, she would have been able to do practical charity work, as Kate Kent has done, and she was good at that, and it woudl have been good for her.
I dont know mucha bout the European royals, how much they do, and I certainly dont know which ones are "sweet"...
