Well, for the Windsors that would the Princess Royal, Anne.

Very nice to list the hardest working royals in the UK.

That does not do "justice" though to the hardworking royals in the other royal countries !

If the "Royal Country" list is


who would the "three hardest working royals" in each country be ????

I can't make a top 3 lists of all the countries since I don't know the calendars for all of the royals in their countries - but here's what I think of some of them:

Denmark - Queen Margrethe & Princess Alexandra are the ones who are the most busy ones and according to me doing a superb job! I hope to see Crown Prince Fredrik & Crown Princess Mary becoming equally active soon, and I think they'll do just as good a job as the others. What we have seen of the couple this far at least seems promising.

Great Britain - The Princess Royal, Queen Elizabeth & Prince Charles always have full calendars indeed. I can't believe how much they actually do, and I think they're also doing a good job.

Norway - King Harald & Queen Sonja of course, but Crown Prince Haakon & Crown Prince Mette-Marit have also been doing quite a lot of things. And I think they're doing a great job.

Sweden - King Carl Gustaf & Queen Silvia are the most busy, and they're just so good at their job! Sweden couldn't have much better representatives. Crown Priness Victoria is the third most busy person, and also she is really great! She represents the country and her family very well, and always wants to do her best and help out as much as she can.

I would say Queen Margrethe and Princess Alexandra for Denmark; The PRincess Royal, Queen Elizabeth for UK; CP Haakon and Mette-Marit for Norway

Yes Diana was pretty great, and perhaps just as importantly, she really made the causes she supported well known around the world.

Unfortunately, its not enough just to work tirelessly if one can't bring some exposure to the charities by your association... I suppose perhaps Princess Anne is a testament of this. Its probably very likely that Princess Anne did did more work than Diana but because she isn't able to make the causes she supported known worldwide, she wasn't able to have as much of an effect as Diana did (but that's only my opinion).

HMQueenElizabethII 06-30-2004 05:58 AM

Great Britain:Queen Elizabeth II,Prince Charles,Princess Anne,Countess Sophie,Duke and Duchess of Gloucester,PrinceMichael of Kent.

In my opinion:
Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Margrethe and Princess Alexandra

Though then again, it depends on what you define as "work". For royals this definition is pretty fluid, i.e. would studying be included as work even though it's different from charity work.

xicamaluca 06-30-2004 07:38 AM

In Spain, i say that's King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia. Then, definitly CP Felipe and Infanta Cristina is the busiest infanta ;)

carlota 06-30-2004 01:57 PM

BELGIUM: mathilde is doing a very good job

DENMARK: alexandra, surely


the NETHERLANDS: maxima

LUXEMBOURG: henri and maria teresa

MONACO: caroline

NORWAY: harald and sonja

SPAIN: sofia

SWEDEN: victoria

"Unfortunately, its not enough just to work tirelessly if one can't bring some exposure to the charities by your association."

This SO reminded me of a line Edina says in "Absolutely Fabulous" when she's disappointed to learn that Anne will be attending her fashion show instead of Diana:

"I need a princess with a press following and a designer dress on her back!!"

It is true, you need to create interest in large part to create impact. Anne does great work, but can't create the necessary "buzz".
