I can't quite remember where I saw it, but I'm sure there's also one taken on the same occasion of Alix and her sister Minny looking out of this 'window'...either that or there's one of Minny on her own.  Shall try to remember where I saw it.  I love this thread.

That photos are really lovely. How old was Eugenie of Montijo on that photo? Was she still Empress?
For the dress I think that is after 1870's

The square neckline suggests early-to-middle 1870s. She is adopting a curlier hair style in this picture, these came in in the late 1860s and 1870s after decades of straight hair seen in her famous portraits. The Second Empire ended in 1871, so this was probably taken when she was no longer Empress. The lack of visible waistline and skirt make dating difficult.
