1. Victoria and Mathilde: they are pros.
2. Letizia: she works hard at a professional image
3. Mary and Maxima
4. Mette-Marit: I don't think she goes on enough engagements and still seems shy and reluctant in public at times.

Define professional. Or maybe what does it mean to you?

A person can look professional and be a slacker. Every Crown Princess has a set of activities planned through the year that are related to their particular country and adapted to any unexpected events that happen all of the sudden. The activities of one Crown Princess can't be put to weight against another Crown Princess because the circumstances are different. For Example, the activities Princess Caroline (current lead heir to her brother Albert II) are of a different nature than those of Princess Mette Marit of Norway. And so on an so forth.

Well, if they carry out the protocol, there has been a presentable image (they all have ...) and these things...

For me the most professional crown princesses are Mathilde and Victoria. They both work very hard and have a lot of activities during the year, which is (imo) one of the most important things of being professional. Don't get me wrong, I think Mary, Mette-Marit, Letizia and Maxima are doing a great job too, but Mathilde and Victoria are just a little bit different for me. Hard to explain... :)

Well, looks and quality of work?
In dress code for public events I'll side with Princess Mathilde of Belgium. Although Camilla (unnamed Crown Princess?) gets some points for bringing some much needed style to the mature generation of the House of Windsor.

In spectacular dress code for any event, no one comes even close to Princess Caroline of Monaco.

Now, quality of work. That's a difficult territory. Caroline focuses on business being her land a Casino surrounded by homes :p. Mary seems to be focused on industry and charities for medical issues. Letizia, being my country Spain such a political volcano, seems to focus on social and political events. As I said, to each it's own. All of them are doing great according to their respective countries. I don't think I can add any more since I'm not familiar with the events the rest of the Royal ladies will participate this year.

I think you'll want to distinguish the heirs to the throne from the wives of the heirs to the throne.

Victoria is the only heir to the throne among the princesses so nobody else is in her class. Nobody else has her job. The rest are wives to the heirs but that's a different job description.

I forgot about that too. So, Victoria's name should not be used for the survey since she is really at the same level as Prince Felipe of Spain or Prince Charles of Britain. Same should go for Caroline since she is Albert's heir.

I also forgot our suffering consort Crown Princess Masako of Japan! She looks great in her dress code although she is now low key on public events.
Another one that could be included here is Princess Lalla Salma of Morroco, technically she is a consort princess too.

I also forgot to vote, so I voted for Mathlde. She is tied in with Mary and Mette-Marit now.

Crown Princess Victoria is beyond any comparision but, as Ysbel pointed, Victoria is an heiress, so she really shouldn't be in the list.
The most professional Crown Princesses in my opinion are:
1. Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands
2. Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium
3. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway
4. HRH Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
5. Crown Princess Letizia of Spain
6. Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

We should treat them differently: Victoria is a Crown Princess, but also a heir to the trone, which is different than being a Prince's wife. Letizia is the CPrincess of Spain, country far more bigger than Denmark or the Netherlands and with difficult history of monarchy, so no wonder that she has so many, very serious activities (maybe not now, she has a little baby:)), more than Mette-Marit or Mary.
Anyway, my list:
1. Letizia and Victoria
2. Mathilde
3. Maxima
4. Mary

Victoria - she has never given me the impression that she wished she was somewhere else or someone else when she's on the job.

She will make a wonderful Queen for Sweden. :p
