Whata lovely photo! Any idea how old Maria was in the photo?

My best guess is 1902-1903, so she would be between three and four.

I'm assuming that the child on VMH's(?) knee is Lord Mountbatten and the boy in front is George. I'm assuming that the eldest girl is Louise Mountbatten, who was born in 1889 and so aged 12 in 1901 (she looks rather young to be Alice, who was 16 at this time).

The eldest girl, holding baby Louis, is Alice. The girl on the far left is Louise. George has his arm over little Maria.

Those are amazing ones -I would never guess there were more photos taken and that they carefully selected which one are for public release. I also love those taken during taking the official photo-shoots.

Maria doesn't seem particularly pleased with George's arm draped around her. Perhaps she was shifting position as the photo was taken?


Edit: On second thought, I think it's just the way she's sitting. Never mind.

Hi Ally Kumari, would you mind sharing where these came from? GARF, perhaps?

You can also see the date - 28th October 1906. (formal ones)
