At the moment the member of the family I like best is the King actually. He seems to be good natured and perfectly suited for Belgium. I also liked it that he did not walk away from duty when his brother unexpectedly died, as many were expecting him to do. That the King gets very little negative press in a country where parts of the press are using everything they can get to weaken the monarchy/country is quite an accomplishment. Also his role during the Dutroux scandal was admirable.

So for me: Albert II, though I have a weak spot for Laurent too, dispite everything...

As for the deceased royals my favourite is Queen Elisabeth of the Belgians, nee Dss in Bavaria, such a colourfull woman!

Nice topic btw, Stephanie!

My favorite member is the king. He stands close to the citizens. Is always in a good mood and always has a joke to tell. He has a heart warming personality.
Mathilde is also my favorite, I like the way she interacts with the puclic. Especcilay with childern and she is such a gracefull, charming woman.
And ofcourse I like Amedeo, i find him verry handsome in first place, we have almost the same age, I think he wouls be a lovely friend with a warm personallity, friendly, ..

My favourite Royals are King Albert. Like Marengo, I am impressed by his position during the Dutroux scandal. I can't remember him being involved in any major scandal, or anything that could hurt his country or the monarchy.

Another favourite of mine is Queen Fabiola, I trully admire this grand Lady.

Of the deceased Royals, I really like Queen Astrid, the Snow Princess. She seems to have been a very gentle and caring personality.
Queen Elizabeth: "I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else, I can give you my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations." God, Save The Queen!

I vote for Prince Philippe, because he seems like a really nice guy. Not into trouble or Cheating on his wife. and he's really a good father. I think he'll make a really good king one day.

Queen Paola just strikes me as so down to earth. She seems to love her family, support her husband and love her country and the people.
It's lovely to see her.
Belgians must be very proud to have her as their queen.
I think she is just lovely.

I love Queen Paola.But I admire Queen Fabiola because she is so regal.I love her hairdo.So Queenly.But I think that is for the Royal fashion part.I love Crown Princess Mathilde because she is beautiful and kind.I hope she is happy.As for Princess Claire I like her too.I thank God, she seems she will never become the wild Fergie type.Infact at times she is like Sophie of Wessex.

I really like them all, honestly. I love Queen Fabiola, she and her late husband are one of my favorite Royal couples ever. They were so sweet, dignified and devoted to one another right up to the end.

CP Mathilde is in my opinion the most regal of all the European CP's. She is a born noblewoman and it shows in everything she says and does. Her children look like cherubs, I think little Princess Elisabeth will be a great Queen someday.

Princess Astrid and her her husband and children are also a family of which the Belgians should be proud. They have represented the dynasty well and have never put a step wrong.

I really admire the current King and Queen for making the courageous choice to work through their marriage difficulties and not to divorce. They both have overcome rather sordid pasts and they now have the most solid marriage.

I generally like Laurent best but I voted for Claire. She's always the picture of quiet cheerful dignity in, dare I say it, the face of genuine adversity.
