The Closest Royal Siblings
 
My vote goes for Felipe of Spain
What do you think?:)

CRIS 02-15-2006 05:41 PM

Prince Felipe

Marengo 02-15-2006 05:43 PM

CP Victoria of Sweden.

M&M_real 02-15-2006 05:44 PM

For me prince Felipe of spain too

marakimou 02-15-2006 05:53 PM

I think also Prince Albert is close to his sisters.

Britters 02-15-2006 06:06 PM

I think Prince William and Prince Harry have quite a bond, (considering what they've gone through together)...but I think the relationships between all of the royal siblings are probably strong, and unique in their own ways.

Huddo 02-15-2006 06:44 PM

crisiñaki 02-15-2006 11:52 PM

I voted for Felipe because he's still close to his sisters even if they are all married and with families of their own, they still spend time together and their relationship is great.

Other heirs may have been close once, but after marriages and family lives, they drifted apart

Maxie 02-16-2006 12:14 AM

I always thought the three Swedish siblings were very close, I love seeing pictures of the three of them together!
There also seems to be a very strong bond between Albert & Stephanie of Monaco. :)

Piewi 02-16-2006 12:27 AM

Prince albert of Monaco has a wonderful relationship with Steph and also a nice one with Caroline
Prince Felipe with Infantas Elena and Cristina

The Swedish royal siblings seem very close! I posted some pictures because I wanted to:p (and didn't want to study for my exam:o ).

I tried to find pictures where they're interacting and not just standing in a line. IMO Carl Philip and Madeleine seem closer than Victoria to any of her siblings. But from these pictures it's clear that they all have a good relationship. Victoria seems like a very "motherly" sister to her younger siblings.:)

I would say CP Victoria. Charles doesn't really see alot of his siblings and the atmosphere between Edward and Charles has been very frosty for a few years now. I think he's close to Anne but apparantly he doesn't see that much of Andrew.

Suonymona 12-06-2006 05:46 AM

I vote for Albert of Monaco too. Since he's been 'eliminated' by ascending to his crown, here are some other thoughts:
when there is one male heir and the other siblings are female, the family seems closer.
But when the heir can be male or female and the family has both, the closeness depends on age.
However, when the heir must be male and there are other males in the family-there is friction, which can be lessened if there is a female sibling.

Iain 12-06-2006 07:34 AM

I've always got the impression that Willem Alexander and his brothers are very close.

Avalon 12-06-2006 07:50 AM

I think Prince Albert of Monaco and Princess Stephanie are very close.
The same goes for Prince Charles and Princess Anne.

I loved the pics of the Netehrlands siblings...They looks so close one for the other! Queen Beatrix and Prince Claus could feel really proud of their children. How sad that Prince Claus could not know closely his grandchildren...

Vanesa.

NoorMeansLight 02-20-2010 10:30 AM

I think this is Victoria of Sweden, too. She seems very close to both Madeleine and Carl Philip.

Prince William. :smile:

NoorMeansLight 02-20-2010 11:06 AM

LQ, are you sure CP Felipe is close to the Infantas? Elena and Christina seem very close to each other, but what about their relationship with their brother? I believe they are not that close anymore, especially since Felipe got married. This is just my impression, that's why I'm asking.

bibliophilia 02-20-2010 11:47 AM

I have no idea whether Frederik and Joachim of Denmark are especially close (after all, talking about relationships in families one doesn't know personally is purely speculative), but this is a really sweet picture of them that makes me think that they do have a good relationship:

https://i42.tinypic.com/2yukjnb.jpg

(taken during Prince Henrik's 75th birthday festivities)

Also, I agree that the Swedish siblings seem to be very fond of each other!

NoorMeansLight 02-20-2010 11:59 AM

Sure. I wouldn't doubt about Frederick's and Joachim's close relationship. But the Swedish siblings come first to mind because it's so obvious that they also enjoy each other's company. One is always happier when she/he sees his siblings as friends.

magnik 02-20-2010 01:02 PM

How about older siblings like Mergrethe, Anne-Marie, Benedikte? They seems be close to each other specially the older two.

Idk how close they really are, they seem kinda close. But Q Margrethe has told that they got closer after Q Ingrid died.

Maura724 02-20-2010 03:10 PM

Margrethe, Benedikte, and Anne-Marie weren't particularly close until their mother died. They lived very separately in different countries, and most of what they heard from each other came through Queen Ingrid. (Benedikte was of course in Denmark often, but she and Margrethe did not make much effort to see very much of each other because they had never gotten along very well.) After Ingrid's death in 2000, their relationship changed a lot and the three of them became very close - the book Tre Sostre talks about how they see each other as often as possible and talk on the phone frequently.

Margrethe is quoted as saying:
"We were simply closer together than we ever were when our parents lived. We have never been as close as we are today. When mom passed away, we suddenly discovered everything that binds us together. Our relationship grew stronger, and today we come together in an entirely different level than we did before. [In the past] our common connection was always Mother. But we must instinctively have known that when she was gone, we had to stick together, otherwise we would lose each other. We knew that deep inside, and therefore we did not lose each other - quite the contrary. We discovered that we were each other's closest when we did not have a mother anymore."

Jan Bloch Skipper, the journalist who conducted the interviews for the book, remarked on how affectionate they seemed to be with each other. In the interviews he prints, they certainly seem to interact well together. Margrethe is definitely the dominant one of the three, but she also seems surprisingly motherly with them. She and Benedikte still seem to see Anne-Marie as their baby sister.

In all the world no brother has been closer to his sisters and they to him than HSH Prince Albert of Monaco.

About Felipe and sisters: on photos or videos it looks that Felipe is closer to Elena than Cristina.

Prince William and his brother Prince Harry seem close as they are close in agge. Prince Andrew and Prince Edward at least in their younger days seemed pretty close. The ones who are closer in age usually are. The ones where there is an age difference the closeness may come later in life.

Rhys82192 11-23-2011 06:17 AM

Well, HGD Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg enjoys being a big brother to his younger siblings! :)

Rhys82192 11-23-2011 06:21 AM

Queen Elizabeth II and her younger sister, Princess Margaret, are example of good sisters/siblings, and of sisterly love. In fact, I was very touched when QEII burst into tears during Princess Margaret's funeral. :(

Well considering 98% of the rift stories came from so called inside sources and held as much water as a colander, probably accurate. You make up much of the feud to sell stories you can end it too 🙄

Lord_Royal 01-22-2020 12:51 AM

HM Queen Elizabeth II & Princess Margaret and Princess Beatrice & Princess Eugenie...ironically all princesses of York and daughters of a second son, but all examples of very close, supportive relationships.
