If you see her pictures in the 90's you'll see her glasses all the time, then they dissapeared, I did some research (and talked with my fellow TRF members ) and we all reached that conclusion

Queen Noor used to wear glasses too. she's had vision problems even as a child, and i've read that she's already had lasik surgery (twice already, i think) but her vision is still problematic.

i haven't seen any pictures of her wearing glasses, though.

Is it too obvious to say that King Albert of Belgium wears glasses since the 1980s? :) And his wife, Queen Paola too. And Queen Elizabeth of Great Britain too, when she reads.
Take care!
Alejandro

Royals Wearing Eyeglasses (not sunglasses)

I am always curious about royals and celebs and their glasses. Sunglasses too, yes, absolutely, but we already have a thread for "royals and their sunglasses." but there is nothing for royals and their prescription non-sunglasses. Just regular eyeglasses for near or far-sightedness, or for reading.

There are many royals who wear glasses or have worn them in the past. If you could post pics and also post the details of the glasses (i.e. brand, style) that would awesome.

Here is Princess Caroline to start with...

Wow Juan Carlos looks different in glasses. I didn't know that he wore them!
Some people look better with glasses than without them and I personally think that Sonja is one of them.
