I'd say it's hard to tell if the kids are suited yet. When Wm was Christian's age, he was the next coming of the Savior. Look at what the last fifteen years have done to him - he's fizzled out and become a whiny little man-child who made a huge mistake in his choice of spouse. Charles will be fine. But William? He's rather scary.
Haakon, left to himself, will be fine - he's got the background and a good relationship with his father. But he seems so oddly passive where M-M is concerned, and she does her own thing. The dynamics of the family are strange, though, when you look at the bigger picture: why does M-L talk to angels? Why does Haakon seem to not mind being cuckolded? What went wrong in their home life with Harald and Sonja that they both have these odd little weaknesses? He does need to dump M-M - she's just an anchor he has to drag around. In light of all that, Ingrid-Alexandra seems to have her head screwed on straight - she has that gaze in her eyes that QEII had at that age: looking at her destiny firmly and calmly; she has a strong spirit. But how much will the chaos in her home life affect her? Only time will tell.
Guillaume is such a question mark - I think at the basic level he's educated and qualified, and he does his rounds with aplomb; but like Wm, his choice of spouse in light of his position is puzzling. It seems like such a mismatch, and she doesn't seem to support him at all. The next five years will tell, I think, with him.
But with the heirs that are still minors, there is one in particular that has loads of potential: Elisabeth of Belgium. Her parents have her already giving speeches. In that role, there's only one way to learn the job, and that's by doing it. She's already confident at such a young age, and she has loving and supportive parents that have her back. She's been a pleasure to watch as she grows up.
Leonor has potential - if she can stay out of the family b.s. and navigate the stormy politics of her country, she's going to do fine; like Elisabeth, she has a stable home life and loving parents, which makes all the difference in the world.
Amalia - same as Leonor, but she's in a stronger position. The DRF seems to have their stuff together across the generations, and it has to be invaluable that her retired grandmother is still around help her navigate her path.
Christian, I think, has great challenges: the Donaldson genetics, a need to somehow overcome his effed-up parents and their fractured relationship, and the poisonous family politics. We all know Marge's indifference (and Dame's issues in that regard) to her children, and that this sort of poison trickles down the generations. I hope that his relationship with Isabella - which seems close in public - shores him up, because he'll need the support, especially with Plasti-Mor.
It's too early to tell with the littles (Estelle, Jacques, George), but Estelle has a strong personality. It's going to be interesting.
