I htink the most beautiful of all the Sha's wives was Fawzia, there is such an unearthly qualit about her. Soraya was half German and so she did have exceptional looks, as children of mixed parents generally do look good.

I though that Farah too did look veyr good at the time of her marriage and even after she had her first son. since then though she has become exceptionally thin and I really don't think she is beautiful.

Farah never did too much for me oddly enough, but I too think Fawzia was stunning. She was kind of plain and unimpressive early on, but she sure cleaned up nice! :)

The first three pictures that were recently on ebay, one of them is I believe her long time lover, the siciallian film director Franco Indovina. And the other photo, is a wonderful shot of the Shah and Soraya on their wedding day.

In the second picture Soraya is seen at the far right with her then lover Maxmillian Schell. I found these pictures from auctions at Ebay, its a great source to find rare pictures.

Has anyone read the Princess's second auto-biography? I finally got ahold of the French version, but I just recently heard that both Palace of Solitude and her first bio in 1964 are basically the same?

Actually, if anyone reads this thread at all, the second book is far more intimate and personal. With the first book she was a bit reserved and kept her image intact, the second book however reveals more to add to her character. She wrote it when she was nearing the end of her and had nothing to loose by speaking the truth. The people she wrote about were either dead or they were too old to be affected by it.
I understand why the press dubbed her the princess with sad eyes, but she was really happy, and resilient with a great love for life. Perhaps its time to lift the myth of her legend.

I got this article from an old newspaper clipping, I think its the only existing interview of the Princess. I translated it from the french.

A private life in a closed vase

We sit here in front of the living room of her house in Munich. She prepares us a drink. And she herself drinks only a glass of frozen water. She is completely comfortable, of a sovereign ease. And questions and responses exchange themselves:

Who are the servants? Have you always had that blond maître’d who served you in Rome?

No, he left. He seemed allergic to the roman climate and returned to his home. I have another hotel maître’d now. I also have a multi-tasked secretary that takes care of the house; I also employ a gardener and a cook.

No body guards?

No. and I will relate you something funny. From time to time, I carry my more beautiful jewels, reason for which I then must engage detectives. Two men follow me wherever I go and that keep the eye on months in permanence. I had recourse to their services once more at the time of the opening of the opera season in Munich, this counseled by the directors of my insurance company who said me: "this will be simpler thus".

Why?

Because, I suppose, the jewels that I carried were worth a fortune. The earrings with, each, a diamond of 25 karats alone.

Twenty five karats!

Yes, but I do not carry these earrings, only on very rare occasions. This is one gift I hold, it was given to me during my marriage. At the time during a trip to the United States

Had you chosen the earrings yourself?

No, the choice was not mine it was of the... shah. He liked these earrings and I was surprised that he purchased them for me.

She almost lost foot while responding to this question. But already she recovered.

Are these earning insured?

No, the insurance company was said me that this too would be risky. I rely on the detectives that I employ. And I have, at my place, a safe where I keep these jewels. In reality, I do not like to carry them: I fear losing them.

Which Other jewels do you possess?

Is it important to you that I respond?

No, just simply curious!

Well, compared to the jewels of the maharani of the Baroda, they do not represent big amount.

And compared to those of Sophia Loren?

I am unaware of what she possesses. I have a riviere of diamonds but the rocks are evidently a lot more modest than you think; and also emeralds. This is a precious rock that I like. But now can we change the topic of the conversation?

Your wardrobe is certainly well furnished?

I suppose I have a dressing room full, but I do not count them. Most of them are gifts.

Do you know how to drive and, in the affirmative one, which car do you have?

Yes, I drive a Bentley, a car of big luxury.

With a mini-bar and other conveniences?

No, not that model.

Any other car?

Yes, a small Opel with which I go shopping. I do not use the Bentley that for those trips. I like to drive. If the distances are too big, I take the airplane. But I detest this method of transportation and I avoid it as much as possible. But there is not other way to arrive in Hollywood.

How many times resided you over there?

Six times, and before you ask, the last single friends who visited were for professional reasons.

You travel a lot, which city you prefer?

Munich, but I also love Paris, New York and I think London but I have never resided there long enough to form an opinion.

Why Munich?

Simply because it pleases me, equally because I am German by my mother. And because my parents live in this city. My father was the Iranian ambassador in Bonn for ten years, he now recently withdrew from his diplomatic career, and he’s set up himself here. Here are the whole reasons for which Munich is my home port. This house we are in, I have had it for four years and I like it.

Has your father completely withdrawn from diplomatic matters?

He has interests in Persia

Does he have villages there?

No, only land

Does he visit there often?

No, generally once every two years and it is usually only for business

Will you ever go back to Persia?

No

And if an occasion ever rose?

I sometimes think of going back, but right now I have no reason to.

What if you followed your thought to Persia?

I could go whenever I want, I have a Persian Passport.

A visa isn’t necessary?

Yes and I have same need of a visa for each country. Because my passport is a diplomatic passport, a visa is every time essential. Therefore I send my passport to the Persian embassy in Bonn, this that takes three days. Thus, whenever I want to visit this country, I must await three days before undertaking a small movement.

Has a country ever refused you a visa?

No, there would be no reason to do so.
