Here's my list ranking the Queens and Princesses by "warmth and engagement index"!!!

Max and Marie tie at the top for me on 95%

Then Mette Marit and Margarethe are tied on 75%

QEII 70%

Then Princess Anne on 65%

Then quite a long gap!

Kate and Leti 50%

Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie 30%

Mary and Princess Pushy are tied at  15% (which I think is quite generous)

Vikkan

Tessy

Maria-Teresa of Lux

Mathilde

Madde of Sweden

Sophia of Greece

Fabiola (when she was alive, obviously)

Anne of GB

Charlene of Monaco (especially with kids)

Margarethe of Liechtenstein

Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg

Sibilla of Luxembourg

Letizia of Spain (especially when kids are involved)

Silvia of Sweden (sometimes)

Beatrix of NL (sometimes)

The fakers (they try so hard to appear like they care, but are not at all convincing):
Hoefia of Sweden, Claire of Luxembourg, MM, Marie-Chantal, Kate Middleton, Silvia of Sweden (sometimes), Margrethe of DK

And at the bottom are those who seem just flat-out cold as ice:

Mosh, Stephanie of Lux, and QEII

I am only going to rate those with whom I have had a personal contact - been in the crowd and close enough to see them operate - so not relying on limited video footage or still photos.

1. QEII - wins hands down for personal engagement with every person she came into contact with on the three days I have seen in her person

2. Camilla - great connection to the people in the crowd - stayed longer than she was supposed to do and had to be hurried but didn't do so so everyone had an equal chance to speak to her

3. Mary - not far behind for talking to the person as if they were the only person there

4. Anne - a bit stiff

5. Kate - better the second time than the first - or maybe better in the UK than in Australia - but very engaging with the people in the crowd - way more so than William who appeared stiff on the three times I have seen him up close and personal

Haven't seen any others in person so won't comment on them.

And how do you know that neither of the previous commentators haven't seen these people in person?  Does lack of access to real life sightings negate the viewpoints of the others?  It certainly doesn't make any opinion stronger or more valid, as said opinions are just that-opinions, and cannot be quantified due to their nature.  

For example, I've not seen Hitler, Jeffrey Dahmer, or Saddam Hussein in real life, but that doesn't mean I do not and cannot hold an opinion of them.  

This seems like a rather rude and dismissive qualifier to add to your opinion list, IMO.

Great list! I forgot all about Vikkan. She'd be third on the list for me as well ...

Thanks Hester!  Star  In a Max-free world, Vikkan would probably be second on my list.

Yes, a gin and tonic was her favourite, I believe. It might be a bit difficult though. Isn't she in the Royal Burial Ground?

No her ashes were placed in the Crypt with her parents.

I loved Princess Margaret. I met her once. She had a truly appalling dress, smoked and drank and laughed at filthy jokes.

I like her even more. Thumb up

Rosella-obviously, before her death.  Although, she's probably quite picked.

I'm so glad to see you thought to include Fabiola. I think she was super warm and wonderfully engaging.
