Same problem in the UK - polls tend to focus on the Queen, Philip, Charles,, Camilla, William, Catherine & Harry meaning the Queen's other children and cousins don't get polled about often.

(in dutch, can't get google translate to translate the page)

To be honest, there are a couple of very unknown members of the dutch RF (children of P.Christina), i don't think they are actually known enough to make it to any list of this type
I tried to find the data but it has been removed since. I guess that (500+) people had to choose from a list that only inlcluded the former queen, current king, queen, their three daughters and Beatrix' other son and daughters-in-law and probably princess Margriet and Pieter. So, of this group choosinf from this list 2 people picked princess Mabel, 7 princess Ariane and 8 princess Laurentien (I don't think anyone would have chosen princess Anita or princess Carolina had they been on the list), so not sure that Mabel is the least popular, at least she is well-kniwn enough to be included!

The polls are sometimes constructed so that you can only vote for one member whom you like most in a royal house. In Sweden, that means that Victoria gets lots of votes. Nothing wrong with that, but it means that the other members could have a higher approval rating that the poll shows. If you can grade how much you like the main players in the royal family (in any nation) on a scale from 1-10, that would give a more accurate result.

The problem with just asking - who do you like the most/ respect the most is that without giving all the options for them to choose from people will always be drawn to the most prominent members covered most by the media.
