She really seems to connect with people, young and old. You can tell from the photos that she genuinely cares about the work she is doing. This visit is not just a photo op for her. These photos have been wonderful to see.

Yes there is definitly something about mathilde, more than any other young female royal, she really looks as if she empathises. It could be her background of working with special needs children, or the recent loss of her father. I don't see any other CPss going to a third world country and being so attentative and empathetic. It could also be that being noble born she doesn't have the need to prove high class behaviour, because she is high class, born and bred, so she steps into her role much better.
P.S I am not criticizing the other Crown princesses, just voicing an observation and trying to break it down...
