Royal Voices
 
I often wonder how the voices of people, that I usually only see pictures of, sound like.
I thought it would be interesting to post links where you can hear the Royals speaking.

For example, I have been very suprised when I first heard Máxima's voice. I didn't expect it to be so deep.

Talking about the voices of the Princes, my favourite is the one of Willem-Alexander. It's sooo deep and charismatic, he could be a theatre actor with such voice.:lol:

Princess Letizia has a very nice voice: strong, femenine, with perfect diction and intonation (but it's surely also the result of the years of her studies and work as a journalist).

Here you have the link to the videos of little parts of her "Telediario":

Letizia's second official speech as a Princess (you tube; she starts speaking around 60. second):

Dear LCM i share totally your opinion on the WA's voice, specially when he speak german because I don't understand dutch.

In Youtube, you can heard too (in the video about the Lech hollidays of the Princes of Orange) the voice of Maxima.

Maxima is speaknig an excellent english with a deep voice.
It's a voice of woman who works in international areas at important level.

For the Princess of Asturias I'm sharing too your opinion. It's obvious that Letizia has a professional voice which we can heard when she worked as an anchorwoman. But her voice is also very tender and feminine, as you said, and as we can heard it when she spoke at the issue of the Ruber Clinic after the birth of Leonor.

I heard the voice of Mary Donaldson, which is for me the tipical voice of young woman. I don't find that she has a good prononciation ( by comparaison with Maxima)even if I know that english is her mother tongue.

This fact doesn't mean that because you are english or in this occurrency australian you have to have necessarly a good diction. I want to say that Mary Donaldson has a nice voice of a nice woman... that's all :flowers:

I think Letizia's voice is very nice even though I couldn't understand a word she said. I just like the tone of it.

Her_Majesty 11-19-2006 02:11 PM

Mary and Frederik during their engagement Interview (youtube).

The most surprising voice for me: Máxima
Interview
(dutch interview, NOS)

I didn´t expect Máxima´s voice to be so deep, and I didn´t expect Mette-Marit´s voice to be so soft and feminine, when I first heard them...

For Maxima you have in Yootub a video about the hollidays of the Princes of Orange in Lech-Austria- in which you can heard Maxima to speak in english. thr link is the same that for all the videos of Youtub, you have to precise only its for the princes of Orange.

I like P. Caroline voice, it surprised me. I think it´s rather deep but sweet, i like her voice very much, not so much P. Stephanie´s, it´s very, very high-pitched.

*SofiaM* 11-19-2006 04:56 PM

I love Queen Silvia and Princess Maxima's voices! I was shocked when I first heard Maxima talk- Her voice didn't seem to fit her (if you get me) :rolleyes:

Letizia sounds very professional-I guess from her days as a journalist. Something I've noticed is that all of the women in the Spanish RF have deeper voices.

Her_Majesty, I can't see the video you posted of Sonja :sad: I would really like to hear what she sounds like!

Here's the link to the site:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/today/ga...ect=01#gallery
Click on the link under the photo to listen to the interview.
Then you can hear her speaking (first the reporter and Harald talk) ;)

I hope it works now.

The voices of Mette-Marit, Haakon, QEII, Charles the Prince of Wales, Letizia (so professional, so journalist-like), and the late Princess Diana (so soft, so sweet) did not surprise me when I heard them. They seemed to make sense, or just to fit them- when I heard them, I said to myself, 'Yep, that's so-and-so."

I was suprised by the voices of Maxima, W-A, Felipe, Rania, and Mary.
Maxima because I had no idea how deep her voice was!! It was not at all what I imagined. Her laugh isn't quite as infectious as you might think, given her infectious smile.

W-A, I didn't realize how deep and rich his voice was. It is somewhat majestic. I thought his voice would be....more adolescent or something, I think, and not so deep. I like it.

Felipe. I watched part of his wedding on Telemundo, and I was surprised by his voice. I think it was just that his voice wasn't as velvety and deep as I might have thought. I also thought it was funny to hear his lisp, which seemed out of place in someone who is otherwise so very royal in demeanor. (I honestly don't mean any offense to anyone by this- I know from when I was in Spain that this is the norm, and was actually started hundred+ years ago from the royal household. It just isn't the norm here in the US, and politicians and celebs work hard to get rid of the lisp, so please don't be offended)

Rania- with Rania I was very impressed by how well she speaks English, without much of an accent. (I found out later that she when to the American University)

Mary- I don't know what exactly I expected. Maybe a little higher, but I don't know. I just felt a little surprized.

lilytornado 11-19-2006 05:15 PM

I also was surprised when I heard Máxima speaking spanish - so very southamerican...(naturally of course, but somehow I was totally surprised).

Her_Majesty 11-19-2006 05:43 PM

If you cannot open the BBC link: Here's a clip from Seher.no
Video
Harald, Haakon, Mette and Sonja talking.

ZandraRae 11-19-2006 07:42 PM

Wow! I too, like Maxima's voice. She sounds so strong. Another royal I love to hear talk is Guillaume. He sounds so sexy. lol

Paula** 11-19-2006 07:49 PM
