Thank you for the wonderful photos!

While her children are attractive, it's a real pity none of them come anywhere close to approaching their mother's superb looks.

Thank you so much for all those beautiful old pictures you post (and have been posting for years, on the message boards to), Catherine. It is really appreciated!

And my goodness, what a beautiful woman Paola was!

Just before their wedding a garden party was given at the palace of Laeken to present Paola to the authorities and the population. (De Post - thanks to Chris)

She's still beautiful, but she was absolutely stunning!

I agree, Paola was really beautiful! Albert was kinda handsome too, but he hasn't aged nearly as well as Paola.
And didn't someone say Albert cheated on Paola? Pfff, he doesn't deserve her if that's true!

Prince Phillip definately has his father's profile, but luckily Phillip & Mathilde's children look more like Paola.

Mum:
Countess Luisa Gazelli di Rossana e di Sebastiano
