I don' t know if it is true but in the book "The royals" the writer was saying that Princess Alexandra and Prince Phillip that have maybe a romance because is the woman like to him, tall and blonde like his daughter Princess Royal.

I remember reading about the alleged affair between the couple as well but I didn't give much credence to it based on who the author was (Kitty Kelley), but based on photos I've seen of him as an incredibly striking young man I'm certain he had plenty of admirerers.

i read in a local paper that the princess's daughter, Marina is living in poverty, she can not even pay her rent. but the princess refuses to help her. i don't know if it is true.

All sorts of things are being written about Marina Mowatt, and I don't know if anyone outside the immediate royal circle knows how true they are. If she's living on state handouts rather than family money, it could be her decision rather than her mother's. Newspapers are rather fond of putting the most sensational spin possible on a skeleton of facts. It doesn't mean they're necessarily wrong, but sometimes they're making guesses about things none of us really know about.

thank you Elspeth. that's my belief too--- that it's Marina's decision rather than her mother's to be on her own, to be independant.

Flora - that story did break a few years ago and it was true. Marina was actually on state benefits and Alexandra refused to give her money after Marina had made nasty comments about the Ogilvy's in the national press and had posed semi-nude with a crown on her head. Whether it's still true that Marina's in financial difficulty I don't know and as Elspeth said, newspapers will put anything together to sell a newspaper.

The divorced 36-year-old mother of two, who is the daughter of Princess Alexandra and Sir Angus Ogilvy - who are alleged to be worth £20 million - was reported to be so short of money that she is planning to take her daughter, Zenouska, 12, out of a private school and move her to a comprehensive.
Where is Zenouska now attending school?
She used to attend St George's School, Windsor, the same school as Princess Eugenie.

Thank you very much Ice, are precious. The first and second seems an actress of the years 20. The third best reminds very much Lady Gabriella, elegant and always smiling.

Thanks, her highness is a great dame. She has a classical beauty and with the step of the years she has turned more beatiful like her mother.
That does colour has eyes? Because in some images has them blues and another greens.

I've no idea about the colour of her eyes,Madjenn, as I also noticed that change of blue and green but I agree she looks so beautiful even at her age now, the latest pics I posted of her are a good example for that.

Alexandra in 1987 (pic 1), 1989 (2) and 1990 (3):

Madjenn, your pics are wonderful, I had not seen the first one before, it's so cute! I do have a picture that is similar to your second one, but if I remember it right it's already posted some pages ago.

Princess Alexandra in 1990, I especially like her in that first dress, very beautiful:
