Even stout, Elizabeth was always very elegant.

I think she was more stately (like her great aunt Miechen (Grand Duchess Vladimir of Russia) & grandmother Marie Coburg (daughter of Tsar Alexander II)) than elegant.

She was not the granddaughter of a Russian Grand Duchess for nothing.  ;)

Hi,

I like the smiling pictures of both George and Elisabeth;  they both look very happy.

I think Elisabeth is both elegant and stately.

It is interesting that both their mothers consider England their spiritual home. I wonder if Elisabetta love living there. Was she close to her Aunt Bee, who had a cottage there ?

I am afraid that the smiles are a facade intended for the journalists ; In reality, attributing from this time few chances to her husband to find his throne, Elisabeth already thought of leaving George to get back to her native Bucharest to live the stable and comfortable life there which really suited her.

Elisabeth has always fascinated me. Are reports that she died in poverty true? Were the ten items of jewelry she was allowed to take out of Romania all she had in the world? It'd be nice to think there was some foreign property or bank accounts.

I think she did not have much in terms of assets after she was exiled from Romania.

Well I guess that's par for the course for exiles. I was hoping that the alleged fact that she tried to establish a salon in Paris meant that she had ample resources for entertaining. I confess I try to believe that this woman wasn't quite as bad as tradition has it, and that her later circumstances also weren't so bad.

Thanks for responding.

I think living in Paris could be on the cheap (like the family of Prince Nicholas of Greece), and as a royal princess it was easy to establish a salon there.
