It is worth living under a dictatorship of royals if such beauty reigns.

Screw democracy... it only serves to bring in nasty looking mullahs.

Where is the fashion police when you really need them?

Farah ( Diba) Pahlavi, Empress of Iran

Farah Pahlavi, Empress of Iran (1938) is the widow and third wife of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi (the late Shah of Iran) and the only Shahbanu (Empress) of modern Iran.

Though the titles and distinctions of the Iranian imperial family were legally abolished by the new government, she often is styled Empress or Shahbanou, out of courtesy, by foreign media as well as by supporters of the former monarchy. She does use the title Empress Farah Pahlavi, a combination of title and surname that has no dynastic precedent, though her children do not use their former titles in any official manner

As it became clear that the Iranian Revolution would be successful, Empress Farah accompanied her husband into exile, departing from Iran on January 16,1979. The couple first went to Egypt, then later stayed in Morocco, the Bahamas, Mexico, the United States and Panama, before finally returning to Egypt, where they remained until the Shah's death on July 27, 1980.

She now divides her time between D.C., New York, Paris, and Cairo, where she has a palace.

It's the Moroccan title equivalent to "my lady" in English. We also use it when politely talking to older women or jokingly amongst peers.

Princess Soraya is indeed very beautiful.

Not exactly a royal, at least not anymore

Ertugrul Osman (would be the highest rank Khan/Padishah if Ottoman Empire were still at present)

I think it was French, but actress that played Soraya was Italian (*drool*).

Btw. Soraya was charming, but Farah is more beautiful and elegant.

lol, I agree.
I did have 2 dogs with royal blood though The first one we had to give away because we got him when he was almost 1 year old and was way too spoiled. And the other was what I consider my first dog-it was a dachshund. Her grandma belonged to the king's sister (current king's aunt)

But Hitler or Stalin never personally hurt me either. That does not mean they are not monsters.

Royals firstly, they have wealth and comfortable life and no worries. All because of WHAT? Because their mother or father was someone? The ones who have power are despots, the one who don't have power are a drain on society's money (like in Britain). Is there anything to like about royals? Maybe you can make the exception for Kouroshe kabir, but other than that they have all been bastard.
