A blog about the Borbóns, Windsors and various other Royals from the present and past. My all time favourite is the Princess of Asturias. Before you add me, go through some pages to be sure.

Retouching photos was quite usual from the begin. But the Queen Mother wasn´t fond of this method. Beaton: “Her Majesty does not like all this retouching”. For her 50th birthday in 1950, Cecil Beaton took new portraits (one of them seen in Photo 1) and retouched them to let the Queen look younger. She didn´t approved of it (Photo 2) and just allowed a more decent one for the release (Photo 3).
