Agreed, if you look at the Starmaker photographs and even earlier pictures you can really see how dramatic the change in Mary has been.

well I guess that once you become a public figure, you become more conscious of your image because of people talking about you. It seems that you are damned if you do, damned if you don't. The public can be very cruel, i mean, the public labelled the Duchess of York as "Duchess of Pork". Even if the person is of a healthy size, the public would pick at something else to critisize- its just the way it works.

It's probably like how some women try and lose weight before their wedding day, why do they do that? Its because they know everyone is going to be looking at them.

I really agree with you, Australian! I think if any of us become a public figure we would change some little things in our look too. Princess Mary worries with her look but I believe she does that because she cares for the people. Our image and the way we go dressed everyday are demonstrations of Respect we have for the Others. No matter if Mary is in some Gala Dinner or just shaking hands in the street, she is always perfect in her look, and I admire her for that.

I agree. I also laughed when I was reading about the media trying to prove P Diana had plastic surgery on her nose. She told a friend "If I'd had plastic surgery, do they really think I'd have chosen this nose????!!!" She had a quick wit about her!

Madeleine looks beautiful now, but with all the dark tanning she does, I'm afraid she's going to pay the price 20 years from now when her face starts premature aging. She really should learn a lesson from her mother. :(
The best cure for skin damage is to stay out of the sun... or use sunscreen!

Gosh! I didn't realize that Mette Marit wasn't natrually blonde! I knew she wasn't flaxen Blonde, but mousey brown?! A real change! As for Queen Beatrix she really slimmed and trimmed, and it is so apparent, how in love she was with Prince Claus.

Of all of the most recent crown princesses, Mary has made the biggest change to her appearance. Her weightloss is quite staggering, she obvious left the need to lose weight, which is sad. She looked great when she lived in Australia. Now she is thin and pale.

wow- cp mette-marit has really changed! before she was quite small and now she is bigger- not in terms of weight really, but in personality she seems to have gained more self-assurance and she stands taller, holds herself up better and also, is not so dreadfully skinny anymore!:)

I feel that among all the current royal ladies who married into a royal family - the one that changed most drastically and dramatically is Queen Rania. Almost all the others, Mathilda, Maxima, Letizia, Alexandra, Mary, MM etc, just bascially lost some weight, got more desiger clothes to wear and were more polish in their appreance but Queen Rania - it's like she had a complete make over.

This is what i think,she is maybe now one of the most beautiful royals,but her before pictures show that she was completly an other person,I don't say that she was a monster or so,but she was the very average looking girl next door,some would say that she already had the potentiel to be beautiful,but then what about the other royal women who didn't get any help of plastic surergy and yet are beautiful,regadless to the fashions help or weight lose which are minim,and I think they all had help of that.

I think every Human Man /Woman has the potentiel to be beautiful and well dressed,with some help,but when the plastic surergy helps,it's an other thing.

Thanks magnik,I can see them now.

What I see that in october 1996,victoria was really healthy and was a bit overweighted,and June 1997 she was really skinny,but was scary on December 1997,I guess the big weight change was between october 96 and June 97,and in this periode she was studying at french university of Angers,but i can't find pictures of this periode.

I guess that her dramatical weight lose was maybe a result of the presure which was on her as a celebrity princess who studies in a foreign university,and she wanted to give a more glamour image of her,but she fell into trapp of draconian diets .

Now I am happy that she overcame all that with the precious help of her family and swedish peole who love her.

Victoria's eating disorder was a result of increasing public commitments, bigger media interest and after al that stress. There was more presure of gossip magazines and newspapers for Victoria. She became a subject of many gossip in the yellow press f.ex. that she is "round" or that Silvia had to restrict Vici's chocolate consumption becouse she was getting heavy etc.. Result of that was that she turned a strict diet into an obsession.
She goes to Uppsala University (political science) and than to Yale University - hoping to stay out of spotlight.
