Sunny I did notice it...thank you for mentioning it =) it reminds me of how she would  look as a child...a sweet little smile and indeed : royal.
This photo is such a window into thier world where getting one's hand kissed is as much a fact of life as 2+2=4....remarkable . What a difference a year later
I was thinking about it like you... and it's so interesting to see how Olga was conscious of being the first - born, without be too preposterous, but just being conscious... don't know  i managed to explain myself  ;)
You have said it quite well. The birth order, when it came to the girls, was usual followed and certainly would be in a case like  this where they were  line to get their hands kissed. It would be expected.  I was just reading about this in "The last days at Tsarskoe Selo by Count Benckenddorff : One day in early captivity ,two officers kissed the hand of one of the girls . The guards complained it was counter revolutionary , the officers were transferred and "From that day onwards the Empress and the Grand Duchess never gave their hand to the officers" ....so that is how the practice died out. I'm sure it was done without thinking....it was so natural to them.

I know in the book Private World by Count Grabbe, it mentions it was taken in 1916. I wonder if it's true because it looks like it was taken in 1914 in the Crimea.

Grabbe's book isn't the greatest when it comes to accuracy of the captions, so you could be right.

Thanks, Sarushka. The hat Anastasia's wearing is similar to the 1913-1914 hats the GD's wore then.

Thanks VOF!!!

I've never seen it so clear. It's a shame I can't save it to my pc.

Does anyone know what kind of flower is on the table?

It's a type of daffodil I believe. That little art nouveau vase appears  though out  the 1914 formals whenever  the table is in the photo.
Marie has her hands around it in one and in the famous photo of the four girls, ( where TN is looking down) it's in front of Marie

Thanks VOF for the savable version, I very well appreciate it ! :)

So it's a daffodil in an art noveau vase. I do recall Maria holding it in one of her formal pics. The flowers could very well came from the Tsarskoe greenhouse. And the vase's color must have been mauve.

it appears sliver to me...but it's impossible to know.
