Those colour pictures above are really nice.

Not a wonderful picture of her, but quite atmospheric I think:


Out riding with her father, unmistakable even though she's looking away:

As indicated by her excited smile and the grin in EA's face in addition to the close-in crowds of cheering fans, they were a very popular and well liked couple throughout their lives.

Ice skating was a pretty common sport among the royals. There are tons of  pictures of them ice skating (Patsy connaught with Gustav V, Marie of Romania and husband Ferdinand, Juliana of Netherlands, and etc etc)

I also have ones of Vicky & Fritz in a skating party, Daisy Connaught, Alfonso & Ena, Maurice Battenberg, Missy with Elizabeth and, I think, Ileana. It was very popular it seems through the generations. In Prussia, though, didn't Wilhelm's sister-in-law write in her memoirs about the restrictions on it?

There are some delightful pictures of Juliana skating as a little girl; something of a Dutch speciality I suppose. Here's Prince Wilhelm jr. following in his aunt's footsteps (if that's the right expression):
