Frst to the left is Alice. I've seen two pictures showing Alexandra smiling.   

This one I found on Ebay two months ago.

KarlandZita, thank you for the recent pictures. They are just wonderful, I enjoyed to see them. Especially the last with the family was new to me!
Greenowl, how strange with Sisis hair, I don't want to imagine what I would look like, if I washed my hair only once in three weeks... ;D

I'm trying to get my hair long again--there's been more than a few time's wanted to Sissi type hair length. That happens when a pic of her is not in my sight--When a Sissi pic is, pop up of two words:  No way

I forgot which book, website I got this from:  Sissi's hair was eleven pounds & she often suffered headaches.  I'm sure she didn't look forward to wearing ornate crowns.

Camilla out dining (sans Charles) with William at Scott's in Mayfair last night. Joining them were her children Tom and Laura.

Just came across this photo--YES!!!! 

Came out the Prince George & Princess Marina picture thread a while ago.  This is the fashion course the DoC should go.  Minimalist jewlery bring the brim of the hats in.  Sorry I brought this into the thread but seeing that pic *points up* was a big thrill.  Haven't been keeping up with the DoC lately.  Hope she's been adapting this style as of late.

I was very pleased when I learnt of the birth of their son; am very happy her delivery was relatively trouble free.  Then I just learnt read about his hospital stay here; does anyone know what the little guy was allergic too?

This is charming!

The rose-sellers appear unsure of what to do and then have to run after Queen Alexandra!!!!

Just saw the video.  It was too cute; that poor rose seller; was afraid she'd fall.  Are there any other newsreels with Alix in them?

Recently saw another silent video (not about Queen Alexandra); what I am trying to say is the speed is not accellerated as I remember old
films.  Agree the rose seller was trying to keep up.

My thought:  Don't mind if a U.K. royal engages in a personal career or completely involved in royal activities or are balancing the two options (for lack of a better term) as long as calls for abolishment of the institution they were either born or married in into are not increased.

In celebration of the 163rd Anniversary of Alix's birth, I'm posting one of my favorite photos of her.  I'm sure it's one of those that were touched up but still...

And it's purple tinted (I look up at that necklace and wants a fake one.);  btw, does anyone know if Alix's favorite color for clothes was purple too?

Will be celebrating the anniversary with an apple danish for breakfast.  Wish I had flags for Denmark and or the U.K. to wave.

Just jumping in here but I don't think even Diana could carry off that ensemble the DoC has on*points up*.  Not talking 'bout the dress it's mega cool-needs a little tweeking around the shoulders.  It's that necklace--as the stones are just too big, just one strand please!  If she decided to throw that thing at somebody they will fall back with a gash wherever that thing hit.

Your 4-6 choices interest me, Alix of W hP, since I had Empress Michiko on my Top 10 list too (way back when - dunno if it survived the re-organisations during which so much content bit the dust). I admire her bravery and dignity and resilience in face of unimaginable expectation and stress. The Japanese imperial 'system' and flunkeys were of no help. From her engagement she had hugeoibstacles - being a 'commoner', the stresses of the era post-War on both the nation and the throne and its continuation. She had to come through severe mental and emotional crises without opportunity to remove or even have lessened the factors which almost crushed her. Oh, and I thought she was beautful too...

You got that right as far as the Japanese imperial system.  Fortunately Pss Kiko had her son last year; hopefully they'll get off of CP Masako's back.
Fortunately the last 3 Princesses of Wales had their male children asap, MF of Russia too.

Not necessarily in order:

1)  Elizabeth I  (Very intelligent and astute)
2) Elizabeth II  (Devotion to duty)
3) Queen Alexandra (MY ALIX! Except for her treatment of Toria, she is far and away my favorite royal!  The faithfulness to her God--God she have to had prayed a lot having a hubby like Bertie/Edward VI.  Then after that there's the beauty, the coifs, the clothes, the CDVs, her clothes during any fashion period,  her wedding dress, the clothes and did I say...)
4-6) The Next Emperor and Empress of Japan and their Daughter Aiko!  This family has knocked the current House of Windsor off the map Except for the Queen, Princes William & Harry and the Wessex branch.
7) GDElla -- Someone tell me she didn't get the Passion Bearer rank?  I'm not sure  (Before she became a nun great clothes and the patience with a husband I think many didn't understand why she married.)  And anybody with the pastachios to fend of WilhelmII.
8) Tsarevich(sp) Alexei Romanov  (I like all NII&AF's kids but he has a special place.)
9)  Diana, Princess of Wales--One of my clothing role models.  A real modern woman in every way! 
10) The last of the Ptolemy Monarchs--Queen Cleopatra!!
