I agree. It looked like she still had her "baby" face in her 20s.
The first photo looks from high school, so 17-18. Mary cant be blame for the bad fashion of the late 80s lol

I dont think she had anything "done" besides aging and better fitness

Yes! Its called MONEY! She married a crown prince and it gave her access to fantastic clothes, jewels, world-wide travel, chefs, maids, nannies etc and the very best that life has to offer!!!

We ALL would look different if we had similar resources.

Mostly, it is a case of losing the baby fat and slimming down as she got older. I cringe at what I looked like in my teens and even early twenties ... VERY different looking in the 40s .... and it was NOT due to being married to a Crown Prince.

I understand what you mean - but I don't think that Mary is the only one who looks better a couple of decades after her 20th birthday; the countess of Wessex is another example. Of course they are both royals - but that's not the only explanation imo.

The two chosen pictures are from the 80s, she's maybe 17-20 years and has extra weight. I can barely recognize myself when I look at my pictures from the 80s with that crappy hair we all had (Mary as well I see)
You could also have chosen these photos of Mary in her mid/late twenties where she has lost the babyfat, weighs the same as today and the fashion is more contemporary and she looks like she looks today.

Mary also seems to be one of those princesses who stay away from botox and cosmetic surgery. Thankfully.

Mary actually talking about it to the author Anne Wolden-RŠthinge in the book "Crown Princess Mary".

"As a woman you are exposed to so many pictures and influences. If you see a celebrity, a movie star or great singer in the media you don't know if you see a cosmetic embellished person. We have a whole population with perfect breasts! It always implies a little bit of loss of personality and lack of acceptance of who you are."

The first official act of Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson after their engagement announcement was in the state visit the Grand Dukes of Luxembourg made to Denmark on 20 October 2003.

Not sure I understand your point though.

Anyway, many Joe Averages own a summer cottage or a time share apartment down south, so it is possible for ordinary people to have a summer and a winter residence.

I recall that visit vaguely. It wasn't that high profile at the time. Mary was still in training as Crown Princess and it was only when the official festivities in connection with the wedding began that the Mary-crazy took off for real!
Until then she wasn't seen that much.
I remember the first gala dinner (in connection with the engagement?) she was wearing a plain asymmetrical dress in contrast to Frederik who in his uniform was weighed down by orders.
She looked like a frightened deer caught in headlights. I felt sorry for her.

The DRF has had a healthy practice about sending the princesses who have married into the family out in the deep end as soon as they can stretch their wings.
Our Marie for example was send solo to Morocco on what was also clearly a training mission very early on. That could just as well have been undertaken by a minister. Marie on that visit of course having the very useful advantage of speaking French as well as English.
