Stefano Casiraghi, who wasn't exactly royal, but who lived like one, who behaved like one, and who entered the realm of the legend like no real Royal ever did ( except, maybe, Pcs Grace... )

Hmm, well since a majority of my favorites have died long before I was born and those I do like are still alive this is a tough question. Perhaps, I will say... The Queen Mother, but only to a point.

The Queen Mother was someone whose admiration spanned 4 generations in my family.

Princess Grace's and Princess Diana's untimely deaths severely shocked and upset me beyond words. My mother could have been Princess Grace's twin sister....

Yet the royal who has haunted my dreams since I was a kid is Grand Duchess Anastasia...and all the questions surrounding her life/death...I feel so connected to her in some odd way and she has been the reason for my lifelong fascination with royalty.

Your mother was obviously a great beauty if she looked like Princess Grace's twin. I think I am still in denial about Diana. I feel so angry and depressed about it...a terrible waste. I even feel a twinge of pain when I see William and Harry now...my God how she would burst with pride at how they have turned out. Same with Grace and her incredibly beautiful grandchildren that she never saw. It all seems so cruel.

Prince Claus - he died much too early! At least he managed to be present at his eldest son's wedding. He and Beatrix were a true love match and lifetime companions and would have deserved to grow old together, enjoying their grandchildren.

My favourites are

-Queen Elizabeth I
-King Karl XIV Johan of Sweden (the first Bernadotte)

These two I really wish I could have seen with my own eyes...
Such personalities, such great lives!

And from 20th century

-Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden
-Queen Astrid of Belgium

Both dead far too early, both representing something newer, lighter in their countries, both very, very loved, both mothers with small children.

And some more

- Queen Louise of Sweden. King Gustav VI Adolf made good choices.
Humor, wit, a strong person who didn´t had an easy life but always
did her best - and, when required, a lady with a truly, regal grandezza.
- King George VI of GB. So brave, so hardworking. He had earned a longer,
happier life.
