Not many, as far as I know. This is the best I can do:

George V looks like the twin of Prinz Henry. Most have always linked George and NII as being look-alikes, but Henry and george were much more close, imo.

There are a fairly good number--the funeral in 1910, the wedding of Victoria Louise in 1913, a trip that George took as either Prince of Wales or Duke of York, the 2 monarchs in England for the unveiling of Queen Victoria's statue, the Kaiser's visit to England during EVII's reign (where the group was photographed at Sandringham), the larger group shot of royals that were in England for the wedding of Louise of Orleans, etc....

Now you mention, Grand Duchess Ella...


During Edward VII's funeral.

from http://www.thamesweb.co.uk/windsor/windsorhistory/royalfunerals/edwardVIIfuneral.html

Thanks a lot, Adaggietto!

Here, in the thread dealing with Victoria Louise, Duchess of Brunswick, we can find a picture of the wedding banquet, which depicts Wilhelm II, George V and Nicholas II. It's so sad that it was their last time together and they didn't know it. It's page two, reply 26, by the way:

(who else but our delightful Grand Duchess Ella could be the poster?  ;))

By the way, in the picture of Adagietto, is Alfonso XIII of Spain sitting on the left side, next to George V? I would say so, but I'm not quite sure.

Yes, it's Alfonso, George V and, if I remember the full photo correctly, his uncle Frederick VIII next to him. Behind him are (just out of photo frame) King Haakon of Norway, King Manuel of Portugal, Kaiser Wilhelm and George I of Greece.

I can provide a couple of pictures of Viktoria Luise's wedding (not photos of course) that show the Kaiser with George V (in the pale uniform on the right):

Great pictures. Do you know when the ones of them together in the carriage were taken?

I think it was in 1913 but I'd have to double-check.
