here another pciture of her posted by Pablo Milstein in "dinastias". Says that the wig looks even more notorious


Picture dated in 1966 and i can identify Queen Sofia of Spain in the right. The woman in the middle i dont know who she is. Can someone help me?




Pd: Karldandzita, can you please post the direct link to see those picture in the Huis Doorn?. Cause the quality isnt the best and im sure there we can see it in better resolution and quality. Thank in advanced!

Isn't that Princess Irene of Greece in the middle--Constantine and Sofia's sister? It looks like she's wearing her grandmother Sophie's tiara.

The lady between VL and Sophia is Sophia's sister (thus VL's grandaughter) Irene of Greece.

Victoria Luise was really close to her younger brother. The suicidde of Joachim in 1921 had to mark her deeply.

Victoria Louisa looks really good with this hairdo of 1960's ;-) She was a very beautiful young lady...
did she like to ride horses very much? I've seen a pair more of photos of VL ridding horses?

Joachim was actually 2 years older than Viktoria.
