I know exactly which picture I mean, because I had it, but I lost it because of a PC crash. The book is very expensive and I only want this one picture. I pity, I did'nt save it, when my PC crashed  :(

The only thing you can do is find a copy of the book and scan it again or find it in a library...

I know, but the book is not to find here, where I live in Germany :/ Some years ago a person from Alexander Palace sent me the scans, but I can't remember who....I would like to have it, because it's my passion to draw these people!  It's only for private studies, not for publishing...

Britt--I think I may have been the one who sent you the photo. If you have any problems, let me know. I bought my copy off amazon (used for $8) years ago after I foolishly let the one I bought during its original publication go. (Momentarily lapse into insanity!)

Who knows what happened the fortune Marie inherited from her mother ... it was a big one, was it inherited by both her children?

Because of her various charities, interests, helping of fellow royals and post-WW2 economics, her fortune wasn't as immense as it had once been. She had to sell the house she had bought for George and Waldemar after the war (before or after George's death I don't know). She had serious issues with Peter so I don't know if the children shared equally or if Eugenie was favored.

I thought Peter was his parents favorite? I I know George favored Peter and IMO I think George was a bit of a woman hater.

Peter had a big falling out after his marriage. Eugenie was more dutiful. There is also some written about in Marie's biography about she and Peter admitting to incestuous feelings for each other but agreeing not to act on them. All part of her very intense study of psychosexual behavior.

I would have hoped that their mother being a student of Freud would have been more helpful to them.
