Sorry? There were so many ugly royal born women in the past! Like in the rest of the population, some of them are pretty, some ugly and a few (!) are beautiful. Queen Anne Marie was such a beautiful lady. But, I´m awfully sorry, both her daughters are nice looking - but beautiful? Never!
Pcss Alexia, a nice person which I really like, has not very beautiful eyes; her mouth is far from being perfect and her neck is much too fat for a woman´s neck.
Would you say Queen Victoria of Britain for instance was beautiful?

Princess Grace (a born commoner!) was one of the most beautiful women I´ve ever seen. The current CPrincess of Denmark is a beautiful woman, too.
So your theory of "blue blooded" women being automatically beautiful seems to be based on prejudice

Beauty is always a very subjective thing. What one finds beautiful does not mean the other person will.
I saw the Queen of England at a short distance and I find her to be a beautiful woman, although she is a granny many times over. She has beautiful skin and a beauty I find exceptional.
If we start taking one's neck and the other's ears or eyes apart, we will never find beauty anywhere outside the airbrushed photos in magazines.
I stand by my previous statement. I find both Theodora and Alexia to be
beautiful ladies, like their mother the Queen.

Ouch! Speaking of Queen Victoria, this is the type of merciless description that was common in the Victorian era. These days it's best restricted to show dogs and horses.

I have never before seen the above picture. Many thanks Beltraneja for sharing it with us!!!!!! It must have been taken at the engagement of Konstantine and AM, beginning of 1964 because in March Pavlos died...

I simply love this picture. Do you think it has been taken in their summer house in Corfu?

I was just referring to your comment, women were automatically beautiful only because they were born royal. That was something I heavily doubted (because of some specific examples of both royal and non-royal women).
I agree with you about the Queen of Britain. That fact that she´s still good looking has probably to do with having been beautiful as a young woman!

But, however, there are more examples of royal ladies, NOT being beautiful - and their royal birth didn´t help them a bit. I´m thinking about Queen Wilhelmina and her daughter Juliana of the Netherlands (I mean, please have a look at the old photos...). All the current and not having been born royal Crown Princesses are way way more beautiful than these two ladies.

My comment from 2008 mentioned that they both have an aristocratic beauty and class blue bloods have.
I am glad we agree on Queen Elizabeth.

I personally found Queen Juliana never ugly. For my taste royal ladies often have a classic beauty which I adore. I too find Alexia & Theodora beautiful, especially Theodora. Plus some of the ladies you mentioned have something special what I don't see in all those models and actresses of nowadays who look almost all the same and so "clean" that it gets boring.

For exactly the same reasons I would Lord Freddie Windsor prefer to Brad Pitt. Although there are some people out there who think he could play a Zombie in horror movie because of his big blue eyes. Its a question of personal taste.

I think that isn't Anne-Marie, but Benedikte.

Hmm... You may be right. The caption says, "HRH Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark in the gardens of home at Fredensborg Palace, 24th August 1964, just before her wedding to HM King Constantine of Greece. (Photo by Lichfield/Getty Images)," but on looking closer the girl does look a little more like Benedikte.

That´s right. I think this was taken at one of the (3 I think) garden parties at Tatoi days before the wedding.

Thanks for posting the pre wedding photos of Queen Anne Marie- she is what I would call a "classic" beauty in youth as well as in mature years.

I'm agree, they have a classic beauty ... their gestures are elegants and naturals, they have very polite gestures, it can see when they walk, when they move their hands ... they are very elegants in their gestures.MAURA724, I found the picture:http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/9427/queenmarie.jpg I like this pictures of Queen Anne Marie, http://img193.imageshack.us/img193/2...ieofgreece.jpg she was with Prince Pavlo, It was Corfu.She was beautiful http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/4368/withpavlo.jpg

He was famous as an orator and grandiloquent parliamentarian as well as for his wit. Jokingly, of course, he would often intentionally accord his spoken word a double entendre.
He would enjoy having dinner with the royal couple, with Anne-Marie sitting between him and her husband and the following morning Papandreou would say, "Last night, Constantine and I shared Anne-Marie" and he would be so happy, like a child.
And I made this reference only to stress the fact that Anne-Marie was very popular among all Hellenes, from the the prime minister down.
Thanks for the clarifications.
It is a rarity that a left wing Prime Minister[a socialist] would have taken to anybody connected to the monarchy . But such was the impact of the beautiful purity of Queen Anne Marie. THis is a transliteral description which is understandible in Greek and maybe losing a meaning when translated verbatim.

I think you are confusing George Papandreou (prime minister in the 60s) who was a conservative centrist with his son Andreas Papandreou who was a "socialist". When Andreas Papandreou became prime-minister (in 1981), the monarchy was defunct. Btw, the current prime-minister of Greece is yet another George Papandreou, grandson of the former and son of the latter.
