a few pictures of little elzabeth. by the way, who is she with?




Little Elizabeth is seen here with her cousins Louise, George and Louis, the children of her aunt Victoria. I am not quite sure, but I think the picture was taken in 1903 when they stayed in Darmstadt for the marriage of their elder sister Alice with Andrew of Greece.

The picture was made in the park of Wolfsgarten at Elizabeth's small house. There it is kept today.

I've seen photos of her funeral but not of her in a coffin. Maybe because of the transporting the body from Poland to Darmstadt? Or it might just have been too painful, though not uncommon at the time even for children (ie Luitpold of Bavaria).

I'm not sure if any one has seen these yet, so forgive me if you have!  There are a few pictures of Elizabeth riding a horse on this page:  http://statearchive.ru/437?page=5  She is riding with Olga and Tatiana.

Oh!  There are more in the following pages, too!  Looks like the family took a trip to Darmstadt?

She was a pretty child and looked a bit like more Alfred than Alice.

Yes. Ducky do look like her father Alfie though...Elizabeth's expression were less sad than Ducky's, her look was more bewildered.

I've just put scans of my postcards of the princess online at my webshots site:

Nothing particularly unusual because I'm too mean to pay the big prices that these often fetch nowadays!

The last two pictures are stunning and new to me. Thank you!  I think Ella looked  like Ducky indeed...but in the photo Dru posted , I can see her father  as well....and more than ever before....in her eyes

I think little Elizabeth was quite unique, it was a blessing that Ernie did not have a daughter again...her death did broke his heart.
