  2. She does seem charming and does her job well.

  3. I loved the pictures released for her 60th! Happy birthday to her.

  4. A nice lady with a big warm heart.

    1. Wow, Ambrosio! Marvellous! That's what I ment on another place about the "Commoner"-girls (which they are'nt at all!!), coming to Royalties by marriage.
      Nethertheless she seems to be a right "Mama", maybe with a'n energetic temperament... Thanks for your introduction in history! :)

  7. She is blessed with a lovely face and looks very youthful for her age. Her hair is always neatly and freshly done, too. I like her style.
