I think Marina got along with most Royals I believe.

Yes. In her aristocratic English ! So charming even today. This series "The Lost Uncle" is a must see for any fans of the couple.  ;)

Here is a little ''interview''  from British Pathe with princess Marina in Paris just after shopping and just before she traveled to England to get married to the prince George. I just love her outfit she put on for this small interview and her accent is charming too.

Don't you just love the way they used to talk?

She had an aura.

Thankyou.

Yes. That is what I call "class" and deportment comes with being Royal. Compare them to Fergie's girls you can see a difference... :-(

You cannot compare anyone with someone who was born a century ago....The Princess might of been exqusite but she was FOUR generations ago!

Well...Class is something that is timeless. Some of them can be aquired example like Princess Diana or Princess Grace of Monaco. Others are born with it. In our age we have the princesses of Luxembourg, Infantas of Spain and even the Princes & princess of Greece (Philip & Theodora). They may not have the same grace as Marina, but they do have the dignity of their station. I guess maybe because they have Fergie as a mother and it did not rub off good on them.

Thanks Lindelle. The challenge for todays's royals is how to be classy and royal (as people expected) and down to earth (without losing dignity). Loved Marina as I do, I don't her breed will be coming back anytime soon.  :(
