Who's the nicest Royal Mother in Law?

imo I believe Queen Beatrix is a very friendly mother in law. I think she's a second mother to all her daughters in law

I would also vote for Queen Beatrix - she seems to have wonderful relationships with all her daughter-in-laws.
Queen Sonja and Queen Sofia seem to be great Mother-in-Laws as well.

I've seen pics of Queen Sofia and CP Letizia holding hands. I just get the feeling that she is very kind to her.

I would say:

Queen Sonja - I think Mette-Marit is very lucky to have her as mother-in-law. I think Sonja exactly knows how MM must feel as a Commoner in a Royal house. I can imagine that she supported her during the first time...
Just because Sonja knew how it feels to be "not-allowed" to marry the big love and how it feels to become a Royal person with many Duties so suddenly...
Also Ari Behn seems to be his mother-in-law's darling...


Queen Beatrix - She seems to have such a good relationship with all "daughters", just as Avalon and Aquarela . She always looks so proud of them.


Queen Sofia - I just had a look through the "Royals and In-Laws" thread... and there were so many gestures between Sofia and her In-laws´. She generally seems to be a very warm and friendly person.

Yes, I think Queen Beatrix is extremely close to her daughters-in-law. She seems to see them as the daughters she never had. She has openly expressed her pride in 'the gifted and talented' ladies she has begotten as her daughters-in-law.

It shows in many things. Princess Laurentien never escaping from her side when the despaired Queen had to support her dying spouse.

Princess Mabel who always and ever receives a prominent place and even wore her mother-in-law's 1964 engagement dress.

Princess Máxima who is given all access and all support and all guidance to all and everything she needs to know as the future Lady of the House.

I vote for:
Queen Beatrix - she is not only a friendly mother in law but also a so tender grandmother. At least, from what I see in the pictures.

Queen Sofia - she seems very relaxed and happy in presence of Letizia, Jaime de Marichalar and Iñaki Urdangarin

Queen Sonja - for the great support she gave to Mette-Marit

I would like to vote for Queen Silvia but that is not possible yet

Queen Beatrix is very close to her daughters in-law
And Queen Sofia has a great relationship with Iñaki and his family (she has even gone sailing with the Urdangarin Sr, and her family is also close to them: they went to Alexia's wedding and have spent some leisure time with the GRF) so I guess she have made a great work by making her "born" family and her in-laws get together very well :)

I think Queen Beatrix is the nicest. For example, on Queen's Day she said something like "we're all missing our Maxima". I couldn't imagine Queen Elizabeth saying anything like that. She seems a lovely grandmother too!

Closely following is Queen Sofia. She seems a great friend and support to Letizia; and again, a lovely grandmother.

Yes karla64, QEII does have a good relationship with Sophie.

I don't think they were as close in the early days though (eg, I seem to recall that the day Sophie had an ectopic pregnancy QEII carried on with her engagements and never visited her in hospital). However, I think their relationship strengthened after the deaths of Princess Margaret and the Queen Mother. Sophie now accompanies QEII in her car at Christmas etc.

She doesn't seem to have the same closeness with Camilla?

Not to mention the fact that Queen Sofia has a namesakes in the new little princess. I thought that was so sweet.

I think it speaks volumes that it was Letizia who wanted her second daughter to be named after Queen Sofia.

I wonder why Margrethe is not mentioned here at all? I have not heard much about the relationship between Mary and Alexandra and Margrethe.

I have to admit that I think the three main women mentioned here have proven to be admirable mothers in law. I love my mother in law, and I know that is not generally the case, so those of us that have ones that we hove, especially when in such a prominent position as the CPs are in should count their lucky stars! I think that Beatrix,Sofia and Sonja are great.

On another note entirely, isn't it funny that this generation of Queens have so many names that start with S and the next so many that start with M?
