How stunningly beautiful she was when she was young - and best of all not a trace of plastic surgery, all natural and all beautiful. Even now she is older she still has that fantastic bone structure and great looks.

I really love to look at the pictures of Queen Paola especially when she was younger. But her pictures at the present are the real testament of her beauty, grace and elegance. I really don't get tired of looking at her pictures because she is really a very beautiful queen.

Queen Paola's getting older gracefully and the fact that she doesn't bother to hide the pass of time is a testimony of the wonderful person she is...

PD: off topic, but both Albert and Phillippe have the eye for beautiful women, great taste really!!!

Yes, I agree. The fact that she is ageing gracefully and the lackof vanity is really refreshing to see, especially as so many younger royals are botoxed, nose jobs and i don't know what else. QP proves that if you are beautiful to start with, then like fine wine, you get better with age. She is gorgeous.

Paola & Albert at the wedding of Paola's brother Antonello, with countess Rosamaria Tasca d'Almerita. The wedding took place in 1960, Paola and Albert had been married for 1 year.

The bride was 17, the groom 30. Countess Rosamaria wore the same ancient veil Paola wore on her wedding day (and later Astrid, Mathilde and Claire). The couple had 3 children, but got divorced in 1978.

Pictures from Paris Match, with thanks to Chris for finding them!

2. with Paola's brother Fabrizio

Thank you, CAtherine. She really was stunningly gorgeous when she was young. I still think she is a very attractive woman -- aging naturally and gracefully. One of my very favorite "older" pictures of her is in this thread, post #23 - the first photo when she is with Albert and wearing that dove grey ensemble. Thanks again.

Thanks for the pics, Cathérine, they are beautiful (as usual) :)

I think many Princesses of our days would like to have this Elegance, beauty and poise.

These are from 2002, paola and Albert in Amsterdam for the wedding of Maxima and Willem-Alexander. They look just like a young couple IMO (IBL)
