Firstly I think, that there is no one, who really has a bad relationship with her daughter-in-law these days. Even not the british queen. Margrethe and Paola seem a little more distant to their daughters-in-law, but that just because they prefer to do their own things.
Since there are only a couple of choices, I think, itīs a little silly to choose 3
I mean one needs a favourite...and that is clearly Queen Beatrix
. She really seems to be on one level with her daughters-in-law.
The very appreciated Sofia, I wouldnīt choose on the very top, because she is so crazy for children. I wonder, if there wouldnīt be a Leonor and a Sofia jr., how things would be with Leti. And well...who wouldnīt have been supportive in this very special situation around the death of Letiīs sister. That she had to deal additionally with the press in this dark moment was, because she married her son.
Nonetheless I think, they are having quite a good relationship these days.
Queen Sonja Iīd also see as a little more independent, but on very good terms with her daughter-in-law, who is sometimes so similar looking to her.
And Maria Teresa...I think based on her own problems with her mother-in-law and with her big motherheart, she is quite liberal and trying her very best...and so Tessy doesnīt have a hard time with her. Iīm just wondering, if she isnīt sometimes a bit too much of a mother hen. Well, I guess, we would get to see that with Guillaumeīs wife one day. Louis and Tessy have some distance and MT+Tessy hardly ever have to work together...
Iīm really looking forward to Silviaīs role as mother-in-law. Her role will be special, because the in-law, she (probably) will mainly working with, is a guy...a guy, who couldnīt be more different to her.
If Carl Philip would marry Emma, I guess she would be more than delighted. At this point, one canīt say, if they are sharing characters, but at least she is very much looking like her. And didnīt Carl Philip once say "Mamma is the most beautiful woman in the world"?
