Queen Paola was really naturally stunning and I can't believe that she is 67. I don't see how she could have aged much better. Diana was always spoke of as a beauty but she couldn't compare to Paola, Maxima, Letizia, Mett-Marit, Madeline of Sweden or Princess Caroline. Diana was very good looking and very well groomed but that is different from being a real beauty as I think all of the aforementioned are.

Queen Paola looks very much like Sybil Sheppard the actress.

Some more on Paola's background

Paola is the youngest daughter of prince Fulco Ruffo di Calabria (1884-1946) and Louisa Gazelli (1896-1989)

She had 6 sisters and brothers :

- Maria Cristina (1920-1988) who married Casimiro San Martino d'Agliè, marchese di Fontanetto con San Germano

- Laura (1921-1972) who married Bettino, barone Ricasoli Firidolfi

- Fabrizio (°1922), married to Luisa Cristina Carbajo

- Augusto (1925-1943)

- Giovanella (1927-1941)

- Antonello (°1930), married to Rosa Maria Mastrogiovanni Tasca

Paola was born in 1937.



The following are family photos of Paola in Rome, published at the time of her engagement to prince Albert of Belgium.

1. Paola and her mother

Cathérine Bergeyck, you are posting again those WONDERFUL pics of Paola that only you can find! :)
Thanks so much, Queen Paola was an adorable young princess, full of elegance and beauty.
She seemed to be very close to her mother, and they seemed a very close family., like all italian families.

Do you think Paola is happy? From what I've seen of her, she seems to me to be very much similar to Crown Prss Masako of Japan- a woman isolated from the rest of the world and in despair.
