She was a beautiful woman at any age.  However I agree with Alixz, the ultra heavy retouching in her later years made her look almost unnatural.  It's like someone had taken an eraser and smudged the character right off of her face.

Yes. Maybe that was the reason that a story about the queen having plastic surgery got floated.
