I've been thinking about this lately as well. I also think that in general the born-in princesses are ageing better.
Lots of the married-in's are going the plastic surgery/botox/skeletal slimming route to fight the ageing process, which of course is a sad reflection on society. I can't think any of the born-ins who are doing this. Can anyone think of any? Madde maybe? I don't think Stephanie of Monaco has but i could be wrong.
I just hope my girl Vic doesn't go near a botox needle, i would be disappointed (but understand the pressure of course)  Nerves

Stephanie had a nice set of bosoms added a few years ago.  Does that count?

I think Max looks good without too much tinkering with her face.  Also Sophie looks good.

I think Max is loosing it.

In my opinion the only pretty princesses out there are Madeleine, Victoria and occasionally Martha Louise. I used to think that Marie in Denmark looked cute.

I like ML's looks, but then I'm a sucker for blue/green eyes with brown hair.  Striking.

Speaking of which, Princess Stephanie was at the UN yesterday/today.  Lord have mercy!  She seems to have had botox cuz I never saw her forehead look that smooth!  Wow.

Personally i think Mary let herself down badly, she tried to make out she was an independent business woman but as soon as she met Fred she did the typical thing, checked out his exes and decided to lose all the weight and get a makeover. That's not being true to herself or to Fred. He fell for chubby Mary Donaldson and not some emaciated self obsessed narcist he sees today.

She had plastic? What is it different in her face, I haven't noticed anything. Maybe she had procedures for much cleaner face but I don't think she had any ps done.

i wonder if some of the reason the 'married in' princesses often 'age worse' (although I do hate that phrase because I feel like it shames people, generally women, for the perfectly natural and unavoidable process of ageing) is because of the 'Nouveau Riche' element and the fact they are often subject to a bit more pressure to 'prove their worth' in terms of marrying a prince.

All of a sudden, women who would not have been able to afford plastic surgery procedures can get anything they want done to fix that 'problem area' they've always felt self conscious about.....and they have access to this while feeling the harsh bright lights of public scrutiny and pressure to show they are 'pretty enough' to have married the prince. And now, these women who got married as 'young' women in their late twenties or very early thirties are approaching middle age in a society that is obsessed with youth and has pretty crappy views towards women over 40.

I can see how that leads them to run to a plastic surgeon, and in some cases, end up overdoing it. I like to think I wouldn't, but I'm pretty sure that if I had the combination of money and extensive public scrutiny, I'd be getting my pesky slight tummy pooch liposuctioned off.

I don't even think it is this generation only: Silvia is a perfect example for being one tuck short of a suspension bridge.
I think the problem is that princesses are per definition: "beautiful and good by heart", so they can't age and they all become their own little Mother Theresa. Same with the queen consorts.
And rather different to the reigning queens. Sure they do get a bit of fashion critique (we moaned about QEII's boring middle age wardrobe and rave about her style now) but for the great part, the media and the watching world seem to accept that those reigning queens do "work" and not "girl-stuff".
However I think this system is changing: People start to choose their leaders differently: even men in politics are getting "style make-overs" and Ms. Merkel has never looked better. Looks are becoming more and more important. Youth is the ultimate goal, when the entire population is aging fast and the majority of people in the western world are beyond the age they crave to be.

Not all born princesses are pretty. Look at the York sisters or the Spanish ones (Christina and Elena).

I also think we should be careful to remember age when doing these comparisons. When you are between your twenties and thirties, 5 years don't age you that much. However, after you turn 40, every year shows a lot more.

Charlotte, Madde and Victoria are being compared to women who are much older than they are. Max, Yrma and Leti were quite beautiful in their late twenties and thirties too, until they started to decay. (I don't mean to be offensive to anybody, I am myself 44 and I know the hardships of being middle-aged).

What I just mean to say is that we can't forget the impact that ageing has in your appearance after your forties. It's "easy" to be pretty young, it's a lot more difficult when your pulling almost 50.

The pressure of being Crown princess or Queen is also a lot different from just being a Royal. Of course genes help a lot - being Grace Kelly's granddaughter has a bonus!

I agree with "not all born princesses are pretty". Actually, all the "born British Royals" are in my opinion ugly. I love Vic but she's not particularly gorgeous either (if she weren't Crown princess she would never be mentioned here as a beauty). Beauty is a rather subjective matter, and a matter of taste. I find it hard to make a general statement about "born princesses" and "wed-in princesses".
