Yes, it's a beautiful portrait of the young girl, probably taken around 1910-1911.

I wonder if there are many other of Viktoria Luise before her marriage.

She looks incredible in all her photos, but the ones that KarlandZita posted are really
beautiful, she had a perfect sense on fashion and elegance ;-)

What fascinates me most about Viktoria Luise is the impression of trust, confidence and optimism that emerges in all circumstances. On her pictures, she appears very often smiling at the edge of hilarity and gives the impression of still having fun even in lengthy public ceremonies. She knew and assumed her royal job remarkably.
