Truly a stunning Consort in Waiting there. I don't know what 'was in the water' when she was growing up in Tasmania, but the outcome is a precious pearl.

Ashelen, I'm with you! Such a collection of photos tells why it would be wonderful to know the details of the transformation as she has really grown in her royal role. But it would be ever better to have access to such things oneself! Coz the pictures really demonstrate the potential everyone has, given the right resources. But I wonder if everyone would be able to do it so seemingly natural. Perhaps destiny was in the water!

I think she has a good canvas, anyone with a good ca can achieve what she had i mean a royal look, now you have to have the regiht ressources like you said, the only thing i think is different in anyone is her inteligence, we might find a lot of women with a good canvas and have the right group to transfor you in a royal regarding just look but to talk and to handle her job is another matter you have to have certain education, inteligence and the will to learn!

Her greatest beauty secret is the kindness that seems to radiate from within.

Well the inner beauty thing is all very well but the money and time which has been sunk into making Mary the gorg thing she is today would not be small. Her total appearance is completely different all the designer gear and the time she now has to focus on herself and please she will be busy but not doing what an ordinary Mum of two with full time job and little help would is a huge component. These people are so lucky in such non ordinary ways I have been in aposition to watch and observe and I CANNOT tell you ...none of you would believe me and I have already said too much but trust me inner beauty has little to do with it.

In a way, you are correct, money and time certainly can make a difference. I have known a lot of extremely wealthy New York socialites and Chicago ones as well who have gone thru this "improvement" -- you still have to have a good gene pool to start with. I have witnessed quite a few awful "makeovers" on woman with more millions than sense. Mary has been able to keep her beautiful mature makeover pleasant and quite natural to the eye. I give her credit and she is making her country and husband extremely happy, even through a few seem to resent the fact. As long as she and Fred plus country are happy, that is her new job and good luck to her.

Mary is now a Crown Princess and future Queen...and she has to dress and look the part.We would be the first ones to pounce if she didn't! Diana also went through a transformation when she married the Prince of Wales. And yes, CP Mary was lucky enough to marry a Crown Prince. That's life! We all can't marry royalty (and to be bluntly honest, for all the perks, I wouldn't want to be married to a crown prince).
I don't sit around being jealous or envious or like some people who go to extremes and hate her for the life she has now! I mean, what would be the point? In addition, it would be a waste of my time.
CP Mary has the life she has - and I say, good for her! I have the life I have and I love it too!

The way they live the holidays they take just organised I was totally blown away and ongoing was my amazement I am of course speaking generally and not about any one group I need to make that vvv clear. My jaw was permanently dropped but my chin I had to stick out. They also have few loyalities if any that was one really glaring observation.

Best Royal Style Transformation

Which royal do you think had the biggest transformation?

Usually its the CPs that have the biggest transformation.

I personally thinks it Mette Marit.Just look at the pictures:

Before:https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-_...t2001Gowns.jpg

After:https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-A...t2010Gowns.jpg

She looks more beautiful than ever,not just stylewise but started to wear more makeup but not too much,and I love that.

My all time favorite:http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_e9OLDZlTqH...husetdotdk.jpg

Amazing.

Anyone else want to chime in?

I agree, MM went through the most visible transformation to the very better. The pictures clearly show that.

Of the modern royals, I think Mary and Rania have undergone the greatest transformation with very positive results. I feel it's part of the magic of commoner become royal.

Something I find so amazing about Mary's transformation is how she carries herself with such regal bearing, respect and beauty that would give the Princesses born into royalty a run for their money. It's not just the diamonds, make up, and clothes that have changed, but also how she carries herself. There is something about her that reminds me of the "Perfect Princess" image.

Very, very true. Looking at her, it's as though she underwent an internal transformation that radiates out resulting in the 'new' Mary bearing little resemblance to the 'old' in both demeanor and grooming.

Totally agree. She has done a text book job at "becoming" a princess -- and we all know that there really isn't a book but it's more learn and absorb as you go along.
