Thank goodness George Elliot is not the final authority in this forum or I am doomed by this interpretation of his word..... In this forum we share our views and why we hold them. Princess Diana is beautiful to me because she is very, very pretty and attractive. This is further enhanced by the beautiful way she dresses (including the jewels and the two tiaras!) and the way she conducts herself with the public. She radiates warmth with her genuine smile and the real interest she shows people she comes in contact with. All these attributes combine to make her truly beautiful to me....

Actually, I think Princess Diana is a perfect example of what George Eliot wrote, and I think she (George Eliot) was exhulting the power of beauty over the mere pleasantness of prettiness. I think the difference is that pretty has a daintiness about it, but beauty has an elegance and grandeur about it. Beauty is more than just pleasant features.

Princess Diana really wasn't "pretty", but she was unquestionably beautiful.

I think Crown Princess Mary is the most beautiful royal lady in the world! I love her fashion, if I could raid her closet...

Well… there are princess who without their closet would not be beautiful… The most beautiful woman is princess Letizia, She is beautiful by nature and does not need to buy clothes compulsively.

without a doubt Princess Diana is the most beautiful royal woman,no one comes even close.There are a lot pretty princessess but no one comes close to her style,her elegance,her poise and her iconic status.Everything comes so effortlessly so natural and of course her heart is the most beautiful.
I like Letizia and Mathilde too.Queen Rainia is pretty too but she wears too much make up.

Beside she is beautiful and elegant Queen Rania is in a list of the best dressed star according to fashion bible Vanity Fair. (http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...am/Queen)Rania.
Is any other (present time) royal lady ever get this title from vanity fair? (I think the late Lady Diana Spencer also had been in this list)

They are all pretty in their own way, but the winner for me is Grace of Monaco now she was beautiful! Maxima is another winner because she is so bubbly and happy- that makes her beautiful!

In my opinion we should make a list of princesses who are still alive, we can not compare grace of monaco to mary of denmark ? you can compare to them only if we can say the most beautiful royal woman in all time.

CP Victoria when she is dressed to kill. She has a royal bearing and demeanor that she probably learned from her mother. The two of them are in a class of their own.

I've seen several pictures of her, especially from the Nobel Prize gala, where you hit the nail on the head with that comment.
