She visited a fabric manufacturer last week, looking super-elegant as usual. Thumb up

I am particularly fascinated with Princess Alexandra-because she embodies what could have/should have been for HM.

8 events in one month? What is she? Freaking superwoman? Putting pressure on the fragile snowflake? Perhaps english royal women gain strenght only in their seventies?

That's an interesting thought Yes

Ha! Not only that, but I think she's actually close to 80, and had some pretty serious health issues a couple years ago.

I really like her and I have no idea why. Seems so classy and goes about and does her thang. I wish the other members of the RF got acknowledgement, publicly, for their work and their patronages. But they're old, thus not glamorous enough, I suppose, for the media. Blah.

Alexandra will be 79 on Christmas Day this year.

She had some health issues last year that stopped her doing her normal engagements but she is back to her around 100-150 this year.

Actually, her health issues were in 2013, not last year.

Nice article about Alexandra for her 80th birthday
http://www.dailymail.co.u...dal-couldn-t-destroy.html


The Queen's cousin Princess Alexandra has never put a foot wrong

Alexandra married Old Etonian, the Hon Angus Ogilvy, who fell under the spell of maverick businessman Roland ?Tiny? Rowland

Ogilvy was director of Rowland's firm Lonrho and was damned as ?negligent? in an official report when corruption was exposed

Alexandra's daughter, Marina, sold her story of, so she claimed, her 'snarling' mother and father's 'excessive drinking' to a downmarket tabloid

Loved the use of euphemism when she and Angus were photographed at Birkhall on honeymoon ?doing what newlyweds are inclined to do?.  Looks like the phenomenon of being papped in an embarrassing situation goes back a lot further than we thought.

LOL, but then on Birkhall they did have the expectation of privacy and they did not know what those new lenses could do. TBH the two above ( on the their engagement picture) do not look like hot rabbits. So I guess it is somewhat endearing....
But I hate it when facts are twisted in order to fit a story:
"They?re good friends. It was in Alexandra?s back garden that the young Prince Philip, an unpolished sailor not yet accepted by George VI as suitable marriage material for his eldest daughter ? and certainly not allowed any unchaperoned contact with her ? used to secretly court the young Princess Elizabeth".

She is ten years younger than QEII and Lilibeth was a young bride, are they indeed trying to tell us that the 11 year old Alexandra helped her elder cousin sweet talking and big eyeing a suitor?

No, I think they're saying that Philip and Elizabeth courted in the back garden of Philip's cousin, born Princess Marina of Greece, Alexandra's mother. But Marina is long-dead and largely forgotten by the public, so they use the name of a current royal some people would recognize. They could have used Edward or Michael's names, as well, but I get the sense that of the three, Alexandra is the best known.

Well I beg to differ: the article wants to imply that Alexandra helped her BFF Liz to outsmart her parents and meet her loverboy in the backyard, covering for her just as girlfriends do.
And that clearly wasn't the case!
The Marina-Philipp connection is widely known, but the article chose to spin the story differently.
