  • She was often described as a shy person and blushed quite easily.
  • Many sources mention that she had rosacea (acne rosacea).
    • In a few pictures one can notice erythematous macules on the nose and cheeks.
    • When looking closely, telangiectasia (broken blood vessels) can be found predominantly on the right cheek.

The condition is also called Celtic disease.
