Of course Victoria is the most professional crown princess. She knows the game from the beginning. She canīt remember a life as one of many. She canīt be "kicked out" by a divorce. The ppl love her, because they are still having cute baby Victoria in their hearts.
This means a completely different self-conception than the other princesses and this shows.
Thatīs why it would be interesting to see the result of a poll without her. Here many felt obliged to vote her, just as one would feel obliged to vote the ueber-perfect longtime Queen Elizabeth II as most professional queen.

Crown Princess Mathilde of Belgium is the perfect crown princess.
But i think, that she's sometimes a little bit to perfect.

I don't think of it so much in terms of who is the most professional because I don't think any of them are bad at their job or position it's more for me who impresses me the most and in fact they all do to some degree.

It's true that Mette-Marit,Letizia and Masako for various reasons are more low-key. and do more joint apperences then solo ones.Masako has awful pressures on her that play into her limited public role.I think they have to contend with the fact that if they are very high profile they may be seen as trying to outshine the women that already the Queen Consorts who also happen to be their mothers-in-law they can't be seen as trying outshine them.Mathilda has to contend with this but given her background that gave her an understanding of what would be expected of her and how it was done she has been able to handle all her roles with seemless grace and istictive knowledge to do jsut the right thing.
The Duchess of Cornwall is also rather low-key,she lacks a dynamic public persona I think she is doing well but she dose not really stand out to me.
I think it's interesting that Mary and Maxima are often seen as the most dynamic and charismatic of the group and that both have a certain star quality not all that different from Princess' Diana,Grace and Caroline I tend to agree with this but I think it's also because they are not in hampered by the postions their mothers-in-law hold since Margarethe and Beatrix are reigning not consort Queens.Given that Maxima and Mary had to contend with a different culture and way of life and launguage an both have worked on this and helping their new countries while being wives and mothers I think they impress me the most at this pont.I voted for Mary because of her interest in mental health problems and her aiding those most left out of society with the founding of The Mary Foundation but Maxima is right there too.
I also admire Mette-Meirt and Letiza for adapting to their families and countries needs and giving respect for the postions of their mothers-in-law.

As another poster said, this is a very tricky question because the definition of
Crown Princess varies from country to country. Princess Caroline duties are different from CP Victoria, whose duties are different from Letizia and Maxima.

If you are referring the wives of current Crown Princesses, I admire CP Mathilde of Belgium as the most "professional". She has the perfect balance of warmth and poise, as well as the "regal" aura about her that I like to see in a Royal Princess. My personal preference is that a Princess behave like a Princess and yet keep a certain warmth and accessibility as well. I think Mathilde does that very well.

The duties are different so are the expectations I put Victoria and Caroline in a different catagory from the CP who marry into it or the princess who are daughters of the soverign-Anne of the UK or Madeleine of Sweeden for example all require a different standard.

I don't feel in a position where I can decide about the most professional of them. First you should know how the most proffesional princess looks like . . . duteous, intelligent, a good mother, beautiful?
I think they all do a great job.
I don't know. I voted for Mette Marit . . . can't explain why. It's only a feeling.

Mathilde of Belgium

I don't have any concrete reason for my choice. I guess Mathilde just seems so relaxed in the photos I've seen of her. Not uncomfortable in any of the different situations.

No doubt in my mind it has to be Victoria of Sweden.
She was raised as such, trained and worked at it since a very young age.
The ladies who were married into the position are trying to catch up.
