Just a reminder that your opinions must be based on facts which include reliable published reports. These do not include old posts which are after all other members' opinions or photos which are subjectively interpreted and are too often photo-shopped.

We at TRF value all our members from newbies to oldies and we believe everyone has something to contribute.

Thanks marmi, for the link. And auntie for your attempts at posting the pictures...

Generally speaking, tell me what close up picture doesn't show the makeup a woman wears? You look at the other photographs in the above link and she looks really quite understated..even in the somewhat 'distanced' hosptial photo's her makeup looks rather delicate and pretty. Not what I would at all consider to be too over the top.

As for the Parliament photos, Marie seems to be wearing as much makeup as Mary...just different shading and colours.

If anyone wishes to view a lot of makeup, take a look a Gloria Von Thurn und Taxis in the 80's/early 90's.

And I do think Mary is looking older, but so she should. She has since lost the 'younger woman look' that was 2004/2006 and now seems more mature and elegant in her physcial appearance. Certainly I don't consider her to be aging quickly...not at all...but her facial structure has since started to fill out ever so slightly and her laugh lines seem more apparent when she smiles. Also, lines under her eyes, but above her cheeks have since formed but I don't know anyone in their mid 30's who doesn't have them.

Mary is 36 year old and not 35. She will turn 37 on February.
By the way, Let's be honest, each rich woman uses vitamin and botox injections, plastic surgeries in order to look younger.

Do you think Mary has had botox?
I don't think so, and as far as 37 goes she is still young and very beautiful and quite able to carry off a dress such as the one in question. I can't wait to see what Mary wears to the next event

Will you please provide reliable sources for that claim?
Especially in connection to CP Mary.

We have no proof that Mary uses botox, vitamin injections, or plastic surgeries to maintain her looks. She may, but we don't know that for certain.

Not all wealthy women use those things. There are many women who have substantial financial resources who do choose to age naturally. That is really an unfair generalization, Guido.

I am 53 years old and I do not have a wrinkled forehead at all. That is
a very unfair statement. I think she takes such wonderful care of complexion she is not in need of anything yet. She is a very young woman by todays standards.

Just because they don't have wrinkles on their forehead doesn’t mean they have had Botox. You can tell they have, they look like the skin is stiff and hardly moves. Mary clearly has not had Botox!

I used to work in a Plastic Surgeon’s office.

She looks so natural.I'm sure that's because she has the ability to use advanced products with high quality.I don't think that this result has to do with botox or plastic surgeries,not at all.

I agree with Iakynthi. It is obvious that Mary takes very good care of her skin. She doesn't smoke, she doesn't appear to use tanning beds and when she is in the sun, she usually has a hat and (I'm willing to bet) sunscreen.

By simply doing these things, one will not age as quickly. Contrary to what an earlier poster stated, 35 is hardly elderly. She is still young. If she continues to do what she has been doing, she will not need Botox or a face-lift for many years.

Unless you can provide a link to reliable published reports to prove that Mary had Botox injections or plastic surgeries, this discussion is now closed. Let's move on.

Thanks for your cooperation.

I think Mary's skin is perfect. Its obvious she cares for her look and skin. Her look together with her natural elegant, kindness and inteligence makes her my favorite princess. I think we, women, should mind to look well, not to look young but as a sign of respect for others. I had a teacher who used to say a woman who dosn't take care of herself is always an useless woman who doesnt know how to take care of her home, her husband and her children

Mary is older than I am by 8 months. Genetics play a part, health does, and so does lifestyle. Other than normal wrinkles around her eyes, and they are not that bad. She looks fine. I don't have any wrinkles yet. But I am a natural redhead and stay out of the sun. I always wear a hat and sunblock not matter what. I can also vouch for getting a good facial. It can take years off. It's all about learning what works for your skin.

A little self tanner helps Mary as well I think, I am a redhead, so I know all about that! Makes a person look more healthy. (No sun baking or tanning beds allowed!)

I think I'm one of only a few, but I believe Mary looks better with a fairer complexion. A temporary summer glow is all well and good, but I for one am glade it subsides with the 'tides' of seasonal change.

Her tan though is the result of no self tanner. HRH has just spent weeks off the coast of Italy and in the south of France with plenty of outdoors time. More than enough sun exposure I'm sure...

I do too like her with a fairer complexion, it looks more regal somehow. I'm no good with the history of Royal Houses, but I remember reading somewhere that in the old days royals were encouraged to stay out of the sun, so that they keep the fair skin which was considered to show your 'higher class'....suntanned faces were showing the labour in the outdoors..

Like you, I think that a fairer, shall we say, untouched by sun complexion looks much better on Crown Princess Mary, who has got an amazing natural complexion. Although sun tan does not look bad on her, I am not keen on it.

I also think Mary looks beautiful with her fair skin. It looks so healthy and natural. I have always admired the way that she hasn't gone that celebrity route and used the spray tans that look so fake. Her tan looks nice because it appears to be naturally-acquired rather than sprayed on, but I prefer her without the tan.
