    The royal clothes,the royal chairs,the royal palace..are definitely better looking than the royal faces of the princes & princesses..hehe

    Agree. I’ve seen most happiest kids/faces in rural India. I wonder what matter most, A Royal Life style or Happy Life Style?
    PS. Glad to see old pictures though.

    None of them are named “Hadji”.
    The 7th one up definitely looks like a Hadji!
