Hi Lucien,

Very interesting...

I would have sent the Duchess of Kent, as she has turned Catholic;  or Prince and Princess Michael, as she is Catholic....
The Gloucester's are Protestant.

Has anyone else noticed the resemblance between Duchess of Gloucester - Alice Montague - and Anastasia Nikolaevna?
 <div class="tumblr-post" data-href="<a href="https://neuespalais.tumblr.com/post/156053793964/has-anyone-noticed-the-resemblance-between">https://neuespalais.tumblr.com/post/156053793964/has-anyone-noticed-the-resemblance-between</a></div>

And the resemblance of her husband Henry to Kaiser Wilhelm II - look at pictures of them compared to each other. I cannot see him without thinking "Wilhelm!". Where would he get those genetics? - Their related on Queen Victoria's side of the family but Wilhelm gets that look from Fritz right? and also his name - Henry William Frederick Albert - and he's said to be named after Wilhelm and Henry of Prussia.

This is Henry of Gloucester: http://images.npg.org.uk/800_800/9/9/mw169599.jpg
And Wilhelm's son Joachim: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/12/Prince_Joachim_of_Prussia_in_uniform.jpg
The eyes - and other things look so much alike.

Interesting idea. I'm mentally trying to put a Kaiser moustache on Henry. Wilhelm was on of Henry of Gloucester's godfathers, incidentally.
