She seems like a good wife and mother, also a great Queen. I think many of these commoner princesses can learn from her.

Were they all trying to compete this year for the worst dressed?  tehe What was Maria Teresa thinking when she chose that purple atrocity? And the other two didn't fare better...

I cannot understand why everyone thinks that Guillaume is going to choose a noble woman, when his father didn't   huh

Who knows; if he's pushed to, his father is asking him to do what his father himself didn't do. Why should Guillaume?

I don't think Henrik asks him that imo, only that he chooses an appropriate catholic wife.

But in general everyone expects that he chooses a noble wife, and that is what I don't understand.

^^ I was speaking in general not about "your" rumour.  flower

Every time I see something in relation with a possible future wife of Guillaume it says that she is/will be noble. And I don't see why.

I've heard of previous rumours and they always say that she is noble, never that she is a normal woman or a socialite.

I think Guillaume is more traditional. But of course no one should pressure him to marry a noble woman.

Really? The CPs where I thought they are traditional married women with noble background: Philippe and Alois.
Never thought this of Frederik or Willem Alexander.  easter-think

Felipe surprised me. When I saw Letizia the first time, I was impressed: she was so different to the other princesses.

What about Haakon? I think he and Felipe were considered traditional not like Frederick. I think WA was also seen as traditional  easter-think
