I like all of them but if I had to select my all time fav it would be Maxima.
She always looks happy and is smiling. I think she would be a down to earth person.

Princess Laurentien. I like her the best.

I'm tired with Princess Máxima's horrible daywear style.
In nothing (except her fabulous evening wear) she is a Princess of Orange.

This would be my choice as well. I think Maxima is a stunning woman, and a good match for Willem-Alexander and next to her, I think Aimee is the most beautiful of the rest. She was a beautiful bride, especially during her civil wedding when she pulled off the Jackie Kennedy look, complete with a pillbox hat.

Anette is my favorite she seems very kind and down to earth.I think all of them who already have children seem like good moms.

In terms of beauty I think all are attractive but in order
Annette and Anita are tied
Aimee
Laurentien
Marilene
Maxima
Mabel

Style
Favorite-Aimee-very stylish
Least favorite-Mabel
Least interesting-Maxima-I don't like her daywear everything she weas gives her a boxy look-it's a tired look
Most offbeat-Laurentein
Most down to earth in a good way-Annette
Most interesting-Marilene

Best looking guys-Maurits and Floris

What is wrong with Annette and Anita??/
They made a very good impression on their wedding-day and on the Make a Difference day. Very down to earth and modest. No trace of false glamour.
I totally disagree on your opinion about Maxima.
She is a young and modern princess. Not a dusty old-fashioned lady!!!

They are not only beautiful highly educated, had previous good career and good example for another monarch for selecting the bride.

I really love Dutch Royal House in laws.
As I said in the thread about Máxima's family the Orange-Nassau brides were no 'average girls'.

Máxima - daughter of an Argentinian Secretary of Agriculture; attending elite schools.

Mabel - grew up (teenage years) in upscale area of Het Gooi; changed her name from 'Los' to 'Wisse Smit' (which sounds much more sophisticated); graduated summa cum laude and did internships at among other the UN and ministry of foreign affairs. Co-founder of several international initiatives.

Laurentien - daughter of 2-time minister (including vice-prime minister; after being party leader; state secretary etc); and friend of princess Beatrix and prince Claus; member of the (elite) student corps Vindicat.

Marilène - daughter of minister of foreign affairs and European Commissioner of foreign affairs; attended high school in the upscale village of Wassenaar (where W-A and Máxima previously lived); member of the (elite) student corps Vindicat (where she met Maurits).

Annette - member of the (elite) student corps Vindicat (where she met Maurits).

Anita - international upbringing: Switzerland, France, The Netherlands, Singapore - where she attended UWC; after which she did her IB (not very common in the Netherlands unless you've been abroad) - moved to London after her university studies.

Aimée - from an upscale area of the Netherlands (Het Gooi); member of the elite student corps Minerva (where she met Floris).
