I didn't particularly enjoy that DM article (not that many DM articles are enjoyable). The women were all dressing for their particular fashion era. Sophie, for example, became a royal girlfriend in the early 90's - what she is wearing was in fashion then. Pretty much every women in the 90's wore those boxy suits.

Letizia is another example - she was a journalist and news reader so she had to dress a certain way. I do believe she has had a rhinoplasty though - has she ever denied have work done to her nose?

Gotta love the Daily Mail!

The DM article is stupid. Of course women change their look when they embrace a new role in their life. With public eye pressure, age advancing and of course full of money, advice, support and new obligations would be stupid the woman who who would not accept to change. Imagine a 43 years lady, wife of the future King and mother of another future King, dressed like a 27 years old middle employee who runs to catch the bus.
And as regards the Letizia's rhinoplasty, she never denied it. And why not doing it? Millions of women in this world save money to do surgeries because they think they need them. Why not the royals which can easily afford ?

Iconic beauties usually keep their good looks as they age. I don't think that was the case with Paola though. Sometimes, I find it difficult to believe that the gorgeous Paola we see in old pictures is the same person.

Just as a comparison, Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Beatrix, Queen Sofia, Queen Silvia, or Queen Margrethe are obviously older now, but their "old" looks are a natural progression of their younger ones, i.e. there is a sense of continuity which I don't see with Paola.

so interesting to see the before and after after so many years!

MM truly has changed for the better, so did mary and kate.

i don't see a lot of change for maxima. letizia has always been a beautiful lady, but she improved herself even more. i liked that she underwent surgery, her face looks prettier. even at the middle of her time as a princess, around 2007, she had lost a lot of weight - she now looks superb:

pictures from 2006: 1 2 3

pictures from around 2007: 1 2 3

in 2008, i believe, she underwent her nose operation, and overall her face started looking plumper.

kate has also been a beautiful lady, but she went down the same path as letizia and got better with age herself!

Well, it is impossibile to talk about changes without linking them to palstic surgery, but this is against the rule of the forum. So I would only say this: No only the phsycal look hage with weight fluctuation and the natural grow, but these women all became part of the royal family, and that means that they got access to luxury beauty centers, stylists etc, so the change was almost inevitable...
