I think my vote goes to Caroline of Monaco, who is still so beautiful and elegant, and also Queen Fabiola of Belgium.

Prince Philip, who turns 93 this summer, still looks incredibly well. I wouldn't call a 93 year old handsome but you can still see the good looks he's been sporting during his life.

I felt in Rome that he was looking both old and fragile - he reminded me of the way my father was in the weeks and months before he died. My father was reasonably healthy but slow and stooped - a lot like Philip is looking. He passed away quietly in his sleep one night - no illness, no dramas just went to sleep and didn't wake up. I can see that happening to Philip one day.

Funny, I thought that in Rome he looked best compared to recent months, back to old spirits. But I agree about the rest, at some point we are all going to die and almost 93 is really, really old, although Philip is still incredibly fit for that age, physically & mentally. It can happen any day, and I belive in Philip's case it will happen just as you said. Philip once said that he didnt want to become as old as Queen Mum, but we'll see what's his fate will be.

I agree on Prince Philip. He's looking remarkable for his age. One of my relatives is eighty six, and I know that she wouldn't be able to go on most of the engagements that Philip attends due to health issues.

Other royals whom I think have aged gracefully are:

- Princess Caroline of Monaco
- Queen Silvia of Sweden
- Elizabeth II
- The late Princess Lilian of Sweden
- Princess Alexandra, The Hon. Lady Ogilvy
- Queen Sofia of Spain
- Queen Margrethe of Denmark

She never really aged, since she died in middle age at only 52. But I am certain she would come to terms with aging gracefully and well, just like she handled everything in life.

A royal whom I think aged very well was queen Louise of Sweden, here's a photo when when she was 73 years old: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...ueenlouise.jpg She has the kind of face structure that only gets better with age.

Queen Silvia of Sweden is a great example of someone who grew old gracefully.

Look at this picture by Stefan Vanvleteren, one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen, and all wrinkles fully exposed....

She obviously had beauty operations and her face is like a mask now. So she is not a great example IMO.
For me "growing old gracefully" also means that you have no problems in accepting the natural ageing process.

I have no idea who did or didn't do botox or facelift or something like that, but for me from the current royals having aged gracefully the ones that come to mind are:
Q.Elizabeth II
P.Benedikte of Denmark
Q.Anne-Marie of Greece
