My sentiments exactly. Also I have the same feeling with Frederik.

I think the Prince of Wales is going to be a great king one day. If as a King, he will be half as good as he is now a prince of Wales, his reign would be remarkable.
I also have a very high opinion of Crown Princess Victoria, The Prince of Asturias and the Prince of Orange.

Felipe, Victoria, Willem-Alexander, Frederick.

I think Caroline would be a great Sovreign Princess of Monaco, but I think that it was meant that Caroline may pass away before Albert, since she is older, so Andrea may be the most likely to receive the throne. But Caroline does have a good chance of becomming princess. We'll never know until the day comes.

I agree, I have the impression that the Danish people really love him, for his down-to-earth personality and his cute remarks and warm gestures towards the crowds and the people. However, being a monarch is more than that, but I think we will see great things from him in the future, I know he will make a fantastic monarch, it just seems to me as if he hasn't prepared himself that well for the role yet.

Victoria of Sweden

I voted for Haakon of Norway

madeleine victoria 09-19-2007 09:37 PM

My vote goes to Felipe. His dedication shows more when he became a father. :wub:

hilal 12-11-2007 03:45 PM

UK Charles or Sweden Victoria

Mari_* 12-12-2007 01:06 AM

Felipe, Victoria and Guillaume of Luxembourg, he's very young but serious and seems very commited to his future role.

antonieta 12-19-2007 10:47 AM

My vote goes to Felipe of Spain.

marine2109 01-03-2008 10:47 AM

My vote is for Victoria of Sweden:flowers:

LadyFinn 01-03-2008 02:13 PM

This was a difficult task to choose the best future monarch. I hesitated between Victoria and Felipe and at the end I chose Victoria.
1. Victoria
2. Felipe
3. Willem-Alexander

Victoria of Sweden will be the best. she's got everything!:wub:

Duke of Marmalade 04-09-2008 11:29 AM

I have voted for Willem Alexander since he's got it all: Well prepared because he has started taking his job seriously when he met Maxima / his beloved father died, acceptance within the public, a fantastic consort, nice family. My next two choices would be CP Victoria (although we still don't know her husband and there is always the whole package about a reign) and Charles Prince of Wales (although I believe that there will be tough times ahead of him after the death of HM plus this Diana / Camilla issue will always be in the back of our minds).

Jo of Palatine 04-09-2008 12:02 PM

I wonder why Victoria and Felipe at the moment have the most votes - they have not yet shown their potential, IMHO. If experience counts, then Charles of Wales is the best, because of what he has been through in his personal life (Diana/Camilla, need to raise two half-orphaned sons etc.) and the compassion he shows to the people because of that. Victoria and Felipe, nice though they are, don't have an idea yet what being king/queen means: making the choices, for better and for worse.

So my second place goes to Haakon for the choice he made in his wife, how he fought for his love and how he reigned when his father was so ill.

Little_star 04-09-2008 12:27 PM

I think at this time Felipe would be the strongest candidate because he works hard, appears dedicated to the job and mroe importantly seems devoted to his country. Moreover thanks to his work through the Prince of Asturias Awards he is internationally known in a way that the others are not.

I would have voted for Charles because he has maturity and experience over the other contenders. However, I cannot help but feel he is more than a little disconnected from people.

Duke of Marmalade 04-11-2008 04:56 PM

If lightning struck and whiped out some of the reigning monarchs the only successor I see fully prepared on this day is Prince Charles. All others would struggle IMO, some more (esp. Frederik of Denmark and Felipe of Spain due to lack of charisma) some less (Willem Alexander of the Netherlands). Let's hope at least the younger generation has another 10 years to prepare and raise their kids to an older age.
