Were the new images from a video of some sort?

In the last two photos she looks like her Greek cousins...at least to me!

I also see a resemblance to Ducky in some of the photos, particularly in the eyes and long shape of the face--not quite as attractive as VM, IMO.

These photos come from a documentary, and I present my excuces, because I had not seen that there was already a thread on Victoria.

Unfortunately there is no English version, and I do not know if this documentary "Memores d' éxil" can be found abroad

Thanks for posting the pictures of Victoria-Moretta. I like this one most.

When I first saw it I thought it shows her cousin Victoria-Melitta of Edinburgh (Ducky). I did not know that they did so much resemble.

You can find several of the photos in Victoria's memoirs.

I've never seen large portraits of QV in Hohenzollern homes; was this possibly taken on a trip to England?

I would have said the most likely location was the Schaumburg palace. She appears to be posing for the photo. Would she do that in someone elses home? Unless she was staying somewhere and requested a photo beneath a portrait of her illustrious grandmother.

In her house in Bonn...the contents were later sold by court order...

It is interesting that she had such a large portrait of QV in her home. Her greater closeness to Vicky and hence her grandmother, compared to her brother and her paternal relatives, would lead to such a display. Wonder how this was viewed by the relatives?

Ashdean do you happen to know if a portrait of Queen Victoria was included in the contents of the auction? I recall that a tea service which had been a wedding gift to Vicky went under the hammer..... :(
