I think she was closer to the Coburg sisters (Missy & Ducky) than the Hesse ones. She did not talk about them in her autobiography.

I had always liked that photo. It was printed in a book Royalty and the Camera (?) years back which drew on some of the Royal Collection--barely a drop when we see what is there though! The little girls looked so sweet. Victoria looks like a giantess next to little Margaret--even sitting down.

She looks lovely in her wedding gown. I don't know why it is so often stated that the Vicky's daughters were unattractive. I think they had a strikingly handsome look.

Moretta looked a lot like her cousin Ducky.

In her wedding photo, Moretta looks strikingly like her aunt Alice.

In the book "Viktoria von Preußen: Kaisertochter und Bürgerin" the author writes that Moretta had no miscarriage and was never pregnant.
The pregnancy was falsely made by a british military doctor on Morettas & Adolfs honeymoon, when she felt unwell.

No, the  book came out in 2010.
It was out of print.
I got it a few weeks ago.
