Wonderful photos!

Astrid is very beautiful.

Have you a photo of Astrid with her sister-in-law Maria JosŤ the last Queen of Italy?

I know I might be having illusions but I see a resemblance between the Crown Princess Elisabeth of Belgium  (great-great grand daughter of Astrid) to Astrid when she was a young girl. I hope to make a comparison. Maybe I can when I'd have the opportunity to post photos again.
Elisabeth looks perfectly a combination of King Philippe and Queen Mathilde but still, I see a resemblance between her and Astrid. I am looking muh forward to the time Elisabeth reaches 18 and see if she looks much like Astrid. If she does, then I would be satisfied of not seeing a vintage colored photo of Astrid since I already have a clue of how she looked like by just looking at Crown Princess Elisabeth : )

Imperial Grounds --
Magazines of the era or recent ones? And yes, she was stunning, it's not for nothing she is known as 'Lady Di of the 30's... It seems every generation needs a tragic widely loved, yet popular, figure. In the 30's it was Astrid, and then there were Princess Gracia and Diana... What a strange coincidence they all died in a car accident.


Must say that among these 3, Astrid is my most favorite - the original People's Princess (obviously ;) She even exceeded them - she became People's Queen ; ))  I think she is the only one who owns/will always own that title.
 I wonder if Grace and Diana knew her, or have heard of her. Unfortunately, I/we will never know. 

I badly want to know more about her, but it seems like so few do have an interest on her online. The book by her friend Anna Sparre has never been translated into English. I find it bitter on my part.
I know it isn't of use to get to know more about a dead person, but I'm very curious of some things about her. I hope to find those someday if God wills it. She is soo fascinating...She deserves to have another book written about her!
