I think, Paola was the most beautiful Princess indeed, she looked like a model or actress.
I voted for Margrethe, though. She may not have been the classical beauty, but she's just one of my favourite Royal Ladies and I found her very pretty and special as a young woman.

Those are also my two favourites from the list, Dierna.
And I´d add Silvia as third one.

Queen Silvia!
Here on a pic from the olympics 1972 http://img270.imagevenue.com/img.php...2_122_81lo.jpg

and in France 1980: http://media.photobucket.com/image/q...viabx8.gif?o=1

but, as many of you already said: Silvia was never a crown princess. She became the Queen of Sweden the same second the archbischop declared her and Carl XVI Gustaf as "husband and wife"...

For me, Paola was the most beautiful Princess.

I'm going to go for Paola. She looked like she belonged in "La Dolce Vida".

Princess Margaret of Connaught, later Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden was one of the most popular and beautiful princesses of all time.

My choice is Sonja of Norway, both because I think she was (and still is) a very beautiful woman, and also because she is the only one on the list who have actually had the title of crown princess. Three of them were heiress presumptive, one became queen directly after the wedding and two were "just" princesses and never had the title crown princess before they became queen.

Beauty is all in the way it's felt. I have no idea who felt the best. Really, because, beauty, perceptions of beauty, feelings of beauty, all fade with age as the love to learn increases.

I don't really understand "crown" princess and regular princess difference when it's bloodline based reference.

I should have voted for Paola, more than beautiful she was stunning. I feel calling some of these ladies beautiful is a stretch especially Elizabeth and Margarethe, it's ok to admit someone you like isn't beautiful. Elizabeth was pretty at best, beautiful would be her sister.

I believe the term "crown princess" refers to a princess that is directly next in line to be Queen. Victoria of Sweden is a crown princess as she is next in line after her father to be Queen of Sweden.

Anne is a princess of the UK and the Princess Royal but she cannot be a crown princess as she is not next in line for the throne. The UK doesn't have a title of Crown Prince or Crown Princess. Beatrice and Eugenie are bloodline princesses of the UK but will never be next in line for the throne.

I hope this helps.

BTW: I voted for Paola. The more I read and learn about this wonderful woman, she just really seemed to be a beautiful person inside and out.

The term crown princess is often written and spoken in media but only three countries do effectively use that title:

Sweden - Kronprinsessan Victoria
Denmark - Kronprinsesse Mary
Norway - Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit

The other European monarchies refer to a title:

United Kingdom - The Princess of Wales (Camilla)
The Netherlands - de Prinses van Oranje (Catharina-Amalia)
Belgium - de Hertogin van Brabant / la duchesse de Brabant (Elisabeth)
Luxembourg - die Erbgroßherzogin / la grande-duchesse héritière (Stéphanie)
Spain - la Princesa de Asturias (Leonor)
Monaco - le prince héréditaire de Monaco, Marquis des Baux (Jacques)
Liechtenstein - der Erbprinz von und zu Liechtenstein (Aloïs)

Other famous titles are:

France - le Dauphin
Russia - the Tsarevitch
Portugal - Duque de Bragança

I completely, 100% agree with every word. I think Elizabeth was lovely as a young woman, but she simply was not in Paola's league.

Only a couple of women were in Paola's league imo, the last Shah of Iran's first wife(was her name Soraya?) and of course Princess Grace.
