Sonja, Sofía and Beatrix.
The Empress of Japan also must be an excellent mother-in-law.
And Silvia of Sweden isn´t a mother-in-law yet, but I´m sure that she will be fantastic!!

I think Queen Sofia of Spain is the nicest Royal Mother in Law. She's a great mother & a great queen!

Queen Margrethe for me - I love the way she interacts with Mary. They seem to have a lot of fun together and a warm relationship.

What you need to remember here was that whereas the Queen is a country person at heart, Diana was much more a town/city person. Their different personalities caused friction because HM always believes that duty must take precedence over personal feelings: a belief that neither Charles nor Diana shared. Now Diana did have a sense of duty but she interpreted it in her own way, which went against the establishment. There was also the difference in the upbringings of the Queen and those of Diana and Sarah.


Sarah had a sense of fun but she didn't seem able to judge when things had gone too far.

The Queen was kind to Diana: bending rules, excusing indiscretions, overlooking outbursts, noting grievances and making allowances for illness, so I think HM is the nicest royal mother-in-law I know enough about to comment on.

I'd say Queen Elizabeth as well. The Queens Beatrix, Sofia, Margrethe, Silvia and Sonja, the Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and Empress Michiko seem nice really nice too but I think the Queen makes the best mother-in-law. I think there's more to her than what we see.

Queen Margarethe really seems to be a sweet mother-in-law. Mary and Marie have nothing but good things to say about her. She seems like a good person too, I think they're lucky to have a mother-in-law like her.

I think Silvia will be a good mom-in-law.

I cannot decide which mother in law is the "nicest", because we don't really know how they are in private. All I can say is that I always enjoy seeing the Queen Beatrix and Princess Margriet with their daughters in law. They always look confortable with each other and always seem very happy and relaxed.

I voted Queen Margrethe, because I know that she have a warm & lovely relationship to her daughters-in-law Marie & Mary (& Countess Alexandra when she was married to P Joachim). I know that especially her & Mary get along very well & their relationship seems so amazing.

It's hard for me to choose one because nearly all of them seem like wonderful mothers-in-law.

I think Margriet, Beatrix, and Margrethe are enjoying having daughters now after raising only boys - especially Margriet; I can't imagine having 4 sons and no girls!

Since last week we have a new royal member in her role as "mother-in-law". I think that Queen Silvia will be a fantastic mother in law and a great help to Daniel. They both seem to get along very well.

I have to go with Queen Elizabeth II because she put up with so much bad press from one DIL without comment.

based on what i read everywhere and what ive seen on videos and pictures, is definately Queen Beatrix (the amazing trio with WA and Maxima) and Queen Sofia (always love when i see Sofia and Letizia smiling and laughing at each other, especially hugging each other^^).

other 3 that i think are nice as well are Queen Silvia, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa (LOVE her with Stephanie) and Empress Michiko (a pity that she has a few votes, she actually is known to be a great mother-in-law and friend to Masako and has helped her over the years because of depression, as Michiko herself had depression before)

i know this is about mother-in-law, but Prince Henrik is a great father-in-law of Mary!!!!!!
