We have a saying that under a strong oak-tree you won't find any other strong trees. That is -sadly- happening here. You would expect sensible openminded parents to get equally minded children but somehow ML (and Hakoon) show debatable characteristics. With ML I would argue that she has the "typical spare" problem as well- unlike the Dutch princess she was just allowed to do whatever she wanted. Money does not seem to be a problem.
ML somehow reminds me of the mother from Gilmore girls. Her daughters are also much more mature.
I wonder, if the time will ever come that ML has to ask Maud, Leah or Emma for help, because she's screwed it up (again). She's like Sarah Ferguson.
I so wonder why this spare life is so hard. With there connection and money they could simply become a honorary President of XY or open some elite institute in their name...have others working for them and still building up a prestige. In the free time they could travel the world.
