Elisabeth was wearing Queen Olga of Greece's emeralds which she reset for her taste. They were later passed to Queen Frederica.

Yes. Elisabetta got along with "Aunty" and "Onkel" better than her mother.

Well...Missy wrote that her eldest daughter had beautiful features (most certainly Georgie of Greece thinks so too if not he would not have persue her until she agrees to marry him). However I agree she was not graceful nor elegant.

I find her the ugliest of Missy's daughters - and I'm not even using character in that judgment (although she did have an ugly character too). She was pretty when she was young (child/teenager) but as she reached maturity I found her quite ugly.

Well...Elisabetta did had s challenging life, but I agree her temperment also did not help her in her struggle. Her looks became a mirror of her frurstation, selfishness and disapointment.

The biographers of Marie of Romania, however, agree to say that Elizabeth, child and adolescent, was very beautiful. Some, like Guy Gauthier even claim that she " was beautiful as a princess in a fairy tale." This is not my opinion. I think rather that Mignon was the prettiest girls.

I think both Elisabetta & Mignon were outstandingly beautiful as children, after they grew up both had a weight problem. Ileana seemed to be the most trim of the sisters.

Well I cannot agree with you're opinion. I must agree with you that there are some really unflattering portraits of Elizabeth, but ugly is rather harsh I think. She looks for example absolutely gorgeous in the portraits that show her wearing the emeralds that came from the possesion of Queen Olga of Greece nee of Russia. Also the portrait of her in furs and tiara that was posted by KarlandZita a few pages ago is really elegant and truly presenting a Queen (just my opinion offcourse). The above portrait of Elisabeta as Queen of Greece posted by KarlandZita (I'm very thankfull you posted it, I would love to see it in colour) falls in the same category I think. Aldo I must admit she really has a talent to look dramatic in almost every (official) portrait I know of her, it seems to suit her in some kind of way. In some snapshots I've seen of her in the years before the Second World War she seemed to me quit elegant. Like a picture I saw of her, with her mother and Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria at Diana Mandache's blog, she looks lovely in her outfit. Just my opinion offcourse, but I have seen uglier things around.
