I wish I knew more on the many other ladies listed but I voted for Queen Sofia, followed by Queen Margrethe. It's because they are the ones I read about the most on their relationship with their son's wives.

ps. don't leave out the Queen of Thailand! I'll make her my number 3 choice.

I voted for Grand Duchess Maria-Teresa, she seems to have a wonderful relationship with Tessy and seems to have taken a lot of what has happened in her life with a lot of grace! A close second would have to be Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands!!!!

I am truly surprised by how many people chose Queen Sofia. She has always struck me as a formidable and reserved person. I've never sensed an extraordinary amount of warmth from her towards Letizia, and I can't forget all those rumors about how she and the King were less than thrilled with Felipe's choice of a wife, just because no one was ever going to be really good enough for them. (I remember people commenting that the King and Queen looked morose at the wedding.)

And most of all, I think the King and Queen's refusal to let Letizia ever do anything of substance indicates that they do not have much respect for her. All of the other Crown Princesses have their own projects and causes, give speeches, perform solo engagements, and earn respect through it. Letizia gets to do nothing. During her engagement, Letizia talked about using her journalistic skills as CP, so I don't believe she's in her current position by choice.

By the same measure, I rank the best mother-in-laws as Beatrix & Margrethe for respecting and trusting their daughters-in-law enough to let them flourish. Beatrix, in particular, has given Maxima an extraordinary amount of freedom to be involved in controversial issues like cultural integration and gay rights, and does not seem to resent that Maxima is the most popular member of the royal family.

Queen Beatrix and Queen Sofia appear to have the warmest relationships with their daughter in laws. The image of Queen Beatrix with her family taken with shortly after the birth of Princess Ariane seems to say it all.

Seriously you're surprised so many people vote for Sofia? If you've never sensed an extraordinary amount of warmth from her towards Letizia, then you missed a lot. Just check out all the pictures of the 2 women together. Sofia has really taken Letizia under her wing in the most sweet way, and has treated Letizia as her own daughter. There's no picture with the 2 of them on it which does not show extraordinary amount of warmth and love of Sofia towards Letizia and it's very visible Letizia adores, loves and respects her mother-in-law, they have a great relationship!

Queen Beatrix seems the most welcoming towards her daughters-in-law. She always appears to enjoy their company when in public. She is certainly generous in allowing them access to the jewelry.

If I remember correctly, Maxima wore a tiara or two prior to her wedding. I thought that was very kind of Her Majesty.

We must not forget that first and foremost Sofia, for me apart from QEII the most professional Queen around, is interested in the survival of the fragile spanish monarchy and Letizia making her way is a crucial factor. I don't know whether they truly get along in reality as pictures try to make us believe but Sofia is certainly clever enough to give utmost support because everything else would mean a desaster, not only for the monarchy but also for Sofia herself, putting her relationship with her son and grandchildren at risk.

I voted for Beatrix - I see having her the best relation to all her daughters in law.

I think that Queen Sofia seems like a great mother-in-law but I voted for Grand Duchess Maria Teresa. She seems very down to earth and loving.
