Your favourite Royal Couple? Part 2

This is part 2 of the thread: Your favourite Royal Couple?
We decided to open a new thread with a poll that includes most of the popular royal couples.

Perhaps members could also write why a certain couple is their very favourite? Otherwise it is just a list of names and that doesn't propel discussion.

And please remember to respect your fellow posters as well as the royals and people that are discussed here.

So have fun with the second part of this thread.

This is a hard poll, because I have a couple of favorites:
Mary and Frederik--totally in love, and devoted, not afraid to show it
Felipe and Letizia--partners, they are each other's support; they are very quiet about their relationship, but still seem strong. In a way, their choice not to be demonstrative in public (never even kissing on the lips in public-not even at their wedding!) shows the quiet strength in their marriage. That's what I call their public marriage- quiet strength. Their love for their daughters lights up their world.
Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip-- Although I don't always like Prince Philip, I think he and the queen have one of the strongest royal marriages. He was her first, and only love, and has been there for her, for over fifty years. A position which can't be easy, the husband of a very busy, very powerful, very strong woman who has devoted her life to her country, sometimes even to the sake of her personal life. Through everything, he has been there for her, her confidant, her friend, her ally.

King Harald and Queen Sonja, without a doubt.

A true Cinderella Story. The Crown Prince falling in love with a common girl... she's waiting for him for 9 years until they announce their engagement.
This actually sounds like Walt Disney material to me.

I also like the young couples like Letizia & Felipe, Máxima and WA, Mary and Fred, Märtha and Ari, Mette and Haakon...
but I think the older couples are more charming..

There were so many lovely gestures between Beatrix and Claus, for example.

So, my favourite couples are:

1. Harald and Sonja - wonderful lovestory

2. Beatrix and Claus - her support for him was breathtaking

3. Mette-Marit and Haakon - something like a modern Cinderella Story...

Charles and Camilla - their love and care for each other is obvious in every move. Besides, they do a tremendous work, both together and separately. And I respect them greatly.

Close second (very close) are:
Felipe & Letizia - I love this couple and their family. They make a great couple and great parents. They support each other, care for each other, have cutest possible girls... perfect family.
Haakon & Mette-Marit - a love story that managed to overcome all obstacles on the way. And what a gorgeous family they make!
Willelm-Alexander & Maxima - another great couple and great family. They suit each other perfectly, mainly because of the difference of their characters. And of course, their 3 amazing daughters give them bonus points as well.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip - I've always loved this couple. It was a very sweet love story - the pictures of then Princess Elizabeth looking adoringly at Prince Philip or pictures of Prince Philip looking at his bride were great beyond words. And all these years the two of them were always together, supporting each other.

Couples of the past:
Prince Rainier and Princess Grace - amazing couple, they 'suited' each other perfectly.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana - I did love them as a couple and I prefer to remember the happy times of them, when they clearly loved and cared for each other.

All is just my opinion. There are so many other couples I would like to include, but there would be a risk of not fitting in one post.

The question is "your favorite royal couple" don't means only the King/Queen or the Crown Prince/Princess, if I understand well.
Nevertheless my eyes stay ever on the Princes of Asturias couple. They give of us an image of love, serious,dedication of their country very exceptional. Their father's activities seems to me so evident than their institutional tasks.

If I have to chose a second couple, I would vote for Juan Carlos and Sofia but not for the same reasons. For the Kings of Spain it will be for the fantastic work yet done!

Frederik and Mary. have enchanted me since their engagement. They are so playfull and in love and it shows from both of them, in everyhing they do. They now have created to adorable children, and they make a beautiful and happy family. They complement each other so beautifuly. (that's proably not even a word)

Felipe and Letizia are great too, they would be my second choice. Their small gestures and looks and their affection and respect for each other is very cute, and they bring that love with them at work, every day.

But to me, Frederik and Mary are in a league of their own.

EDIT: Cristina and Inaki .. Ah, the pictures that Criniñaki post are too adorable for words !

Máxima and Willem-Alexander I simply loooove. They are such a good example of opposits attracts (sp?). WA with his quiet and a bit shy personality and Maxima is constantly refreshing with her happy and outgoing personality. They are both such sweet persons in their own ways and together they are so cute because they do seem to be the other one´s contrast. Another reason to love these two is their family. I personally think they seem to be one of the most devoted royal parents. It´s so clear they are truly happiest with their kids and how is little Amalia with her mother´s personality and her daddy´s looks

on a second place I would put Beatrix and Claus (I have a thing for the Dutch royals ) they seemed to be much alike M&WA and they loved each other so much til the end. and prince Claus really seemed to be extremely popular in the country.

on a third place I would say Harald and Sonja. they went through so much before they were allowed to get married and still after all these years they seem to be each others´ strength

A couple not in the list and one I love more and more everyday is not exactly Royalty. Or partly Royalty - I really like Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy. They seem to make a wonderful couple, their care and love is so apparent in their eyes.

It's hard decision to take for me. I voted for Felipe and Letizia, but I also like Frederik and Mary, Mette-Marit and Haakon, Willem-Alexander and Maxima. It's hard to say which couple is my favourite. I like Carl Gustaf and Silvia, Harald and Sonja, Juan Carlos and Sofia.
I like queen Margrethe, but I don't like Henrik

My favourite couple were Beatrix and Claus.
Their love looked so deep and so 'honest'... I don't know how to say it, but they never looked faked... just lovely.
It was so moving to see them at the wedding of Willem and Maxima.

My second favourite couple are Mary and Frederik and Maxima and Willem.
Of the older couples I also like the Norwegian Couple and the Spanish one!

I already posted here before, but as I've gotten to know more royals my opinions changed.

My favourite younger couple is Willem-Alexander and Maxima. They are so happy and comfortable around each other, it's always so nice to see photos of them.

Regarding the 'older' royals, I like King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofía for their hard working attitude. They certainly make a good team.

Also, King Albert and Queen Paola. There are some lovey pictures of them together now and I like the way they've managed to overcome previous problems in their relationship.
