The Lovely, elegant and fashionable Princess Marina Duchess of Kent from the Chicago Tribune. I just love her elegant outfits and beautiful hats and furs. Especially the thirt outfit is stunning and look at the outfit in the ninth picture. Beautiful. She has some great hairstyles too. In the seventh picture she is wearing a diamond star in her fashionable hairstyle. I wish there would be an exhibition of her clothes someday.























I think the last photograph was taken during a memorial service for the Duke of Kent in 1942. It seems she is crying. So sad.

Marina in fur coat. The fur coat, in various forms, was the great vogue in the 30s :


A three-quarter jacket In 1937


A longer coat in 1938


And 1939


Another form during World War II


After War, with a matching hat


In the fifties with her daughter Alexandra

The famous session of portraits of the Duchess of Kent in Greek national costume :









Cecil Beaton told later that she arrived at the studio with "a basket of picnic and some boxes containing the Greek national costume and its official dress, as well as all its decorations".
