HM Queen Ingrid. She was largely responsible for the renewed popularity of the Danish Royal family. She was so elegant, dignified, and caring.

I agree, especially about Princess Grace. I also admire Queen Victoria and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte.

My most favorite deceased royal is King Hussein of Jordan, he accomplished so much in his short lifetime, had he been given more time he would have accomplished many more great things. He really was a blessing to not only his part of the globe, but to the world at large, it's a pity we lost him.

I dont feel any emotional attachement to any royal, except for her.

And I add Count Lennart Bernadotte of Wisborg to my list, he was still in life when I started this thread. He was such a fantastic personality, what a life he had - and he was such a brilliant photographer. May he reast in peace.

Hi,

Princess Diana was my personal favourite royal, followed by Princess Grace and Queen Alexandra. Undoubtedly, three very fascinating women.
