Elisabeth did have fuzzy hair...

Yeah I noticed that tool. Naturally very curly I guess and difficult to keep orderly. Does nothing to blemish her beauty though and also how adorable these photos are...particularly the shot of her holding little Tatiana. Too sweet!

I think that might be from Ducky's side of the family since both Don & his brother did not have fuzzy hair...

Just found this picture and since I do not remember it was posted before, I thought you may like to see it shared :)

The girl on Victoria´s lap is her daughter - but not Elisabeth. That is Princess Maria Kyrilovna, the eldest of three children Ducky had with her second husband. That may be why you have not seen the picture in connection with Ella :-)

Neither of them looks very happy, particularly not the mother.

Oh! Sorry for my fault!
I always thought Elisabeth looked like her father but now I see she must have had much of her mother's feautures since this girl looks so much like Elisabeth to me. Yes, the all look very very sad. It must have been always with the mother (since her sister too said Victoria had 'always tragedy' around her) and not -only?- have been the unhappy marriage.

But I have another pic which I did not see here and this time I am right I hope :)

Isn't it sweet that she put her horse under the table? I used to play liket hat too, there was the stable :D

Yes, this is Elisabeth.  I always found her to be a great likeness of her mother - but with more regular features inherited from the Hesse family.

Here is the picture in better quality:

Is that a wedding picture of her parents among the photographs?

No. Not seen in photograph. However there is the coronation photo of King Edward VII & Queen Alexandra.

This bronze frieze is part of the memorial to Elizabeth , in the Herrengarten in Darmstadt. It depicts the dead princess as Snow White in the glass coffin, surrounded by the grieving dwarfs. The inscription below reads "for our little princess, from the children of Darmstadt" ("unserem Prinzesschen die Kinder Darmstadts"). Sadly, one of the dwarfs was damaged when Darmstadt was bombed during World War Two.
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
