Queen Farah was crowned Shahbanou or Empress at the Coronation on 26th October 1967.
Prior to the wedding, and following her engagement in November 1959 to His Majesty The Shah, Queen Farah moved into private quarters within the palace complex as preparations for the wedding were taking place. It was then that she realized for the first time how busy her future husband was as a head of state, and how precious and limited the private moments he could take. Queen Farah also got to better know the rest of the royal family.
The royal couple preferred to spend their honeymoon in Ramsar, a small town near the Caspian Sea. Once married, Queen Farah resolved to get to work and help her husband in building a better future for the Iranian people.
Prince Reza, heir to the throne was born on October 31, 1960.
