Marie-Astrid has slimmed down from the last time I've seen a picture of her.
She looks really *Good* now !!!
imho, she has inherited the grace that her mother has ... regal to boot !

Photos of Princess Marie Astrid's youth I



Princess Marie-Astrid is for me and for lot of Luxembourgers one of the most beautifull princesses of the world.
I've found images from the youth of that beautiful princess. The most remarkable features of Princess Marie-Astrid are her beautiful blond hair and her lighting blue eyes.
The first photo dates from 1962 (8 years old) where you can see Princess Marie-Astrid with more than shoulder length hair, the second from 1966 (12 year old) on which she wear her beautiful blond hair a little shorter just above her shoulders. The third picture dates from 1970 (16 year old) the periode during which she wear her beautiful hair very long, like the fourth and fifth picture (~1968-1974 but I can mistaken with the dates). I saw a photo on which she has waist length hair and it was very beautiful.:)
It was a rarity at that time to find a princess with such long hair like in the farytales. On the sixth photo you see a Princess Marie-Astrid in 1974 (20 years) after she cut her long blond hair. It was a pity for her lovely hair (she never had long hair again!) On the last photo you see the beautiful Princess Marie-Astrid of the year 1976.
Nevertheless she never had long hair again, Princess Marie-Astrid was and is also now at the age of 50 one of the most beautiful princesses of the world.:o Princess Marie-Christine ressembles her a lot (same beautiful hair, same blue eyes, same lovely face).

I agree....she is one of the prettiest princesses. Especially when she was younger. She is just beautiful! And so are her daughters.

Photos of Princess Marie Astrid's youth III


To finish I want to show some more photos of beautiful Princess Marie-Astrid who is born the 17.2.1954.:)
The first picutre two pictures show a beautiful little princess at the age 5 or 6, the 3-5 pictures show Princess Marie-Astrid 1966 at the age of twelve, the following three might be take between 1966 and 1970 (she is taller than in the images of 1966, but her hair isn't as long as on one photo I saw of 1970).
The last two shows an actual Archiduchess Marie-Astrid at the age of 50.
I hope you enjoy these photos.:)

It's not a special version: it's a french name, very current in France for women aged 45/50. The Greek is Christianos, the Christian.

Princess Marie Astrid named a ship on 25.April.1993

It is a tradition in Luxembourg that a luxury ship is named after Princess Marie Astrid, the "MS Princesse Marie Astrid".

She did it first in 1966 at age of twelve, than a second time, a third time in 1993 and a fourth time in 2000.

Here are the photos of the name of the ship ceremony on 25.April.1993.

(Unfortunately I never found images from the other ceremonies of 1966 or 2000:( !)
