You've said it, Jaya! And I'm relieved to see her so well, so stylish, so regal...Far from being ill, she is more healthy than ever. She still is THE EMPRESS.

Vanesa.

I second and third that Vanesa!
Looks like there are two heavyweights of royalty in the world Farah DIba and the Queen in the playing deck of cards.

^ Excellent post, Jaya! I agree and I'd also like to add Q.Noor here. Gravity and a certain cachet are the two qualities that most royals lack these days. These three women have set a great example so far. Now let's hope and pray that someone will follow that...

ONce they break the mould on Farah and Noor we will hardly have others- Noor especially is the least self interested of all. I adore her as I do Farah Diba for the reasons I have mentioned.
I agree that royals lack this type of cachet nowadays.

Thumbs up Queen Farah on More4 (UK)

I watched a brilliant docu-movie on queen farah.

It was made by an iranian women now living in sweden whom opposed her husbands regime. It was a great watch--discussing her current life, how she felt about her husband and of course the current regime.

It was quite sad. She seems displaced and quite hurt.

"I feel like a traveller, I feel like I'm living in a city but now my home. I don't belong here".

It really was quite sad. She seemed extremely genuine, I don't think she fully accepted what had been done within her husbands country by him and his fellow men.

What's your opinions, did you catch it?

Is it "The Queen and I"? I've heard of it, but I don't think it's aired here yet. I'd love to see it!

Yes, I supose it's "The Queen and I". I watched it some month ago and it's very curious to see face to face the best Queen that the earth has ever had and the director of the documentary, a woman that when was young was against the monarchy and even had a brother who died in some riot. The documentary is extraordinary and shows an extraordinary woman, Empress Farah, who recognises some mistakes but, at the same time, has a faith in the future of her loved country, her homeland.

Perfect summary, Elisenda! This documentary sounds really interesting, I'd love to watch it soon! Does anyone know if we can find it on YouTube, for example? Or some parts of it?

The documentary is available on YouTube (9 parts). I don't have the link, you can type 'Documentary Farah Pahlavi', if you want English subtitles. If you type 'The Queen and I', you'll get Swedish subtitles. I watched it with great pleasure and particularly liked the part where she talked about how she had met the Shah. Quite a fairy tale!

Unfortunately, the only one I'm able to come up with that is English is part 1.

^ This is strange. Once you've found the 1st part the other parts appear on the list. The only explanation that comes to mind is that maybe the other parts are not available in the US.

Some weeks ago I went to Youtube and found out by "Farah Pahlavi" and the documentary was, as you said, divided in 9 videos, but I watched some of them and the language was English.

Really HIM Empress Farah deserves the tittle "Empress of the Arts".

^ And she looked stunning and majestical once again. Thanks for the link - it had been a while since we last saw her out and about.

Catherine Middleton take heed - this is one elegant lady.......
When Farah is attired there is no one else.She has had impeccable and faultless taste since the day of her betrothal.
