The only one's I can recognize are second row: Felix Yusupov Sr, Grand Duke Serge with his hand on Dmitri's shoulder, and Grand Duchess Maria
On the first row I can only ID Ella and Zenaida..maybe someone else can recognize some of these faces?

I'm refferring to some anectdotes or wathever you want, I read in other thread that she didn't have
a good relationship with Alexandra, specially after the death of Rasputin, Didn't it damaged the relationship
between Ella and Zinaida?

No, that's not the GDss Maria Pavlovna-elder, that's Princess Maria Wasiltchikova.

Only ones were when both Dimitri & Felix were children. It is sad that Dimitri died, he was more handsome and manly looking than his pretty brother Felix. It would be interesting if any letters survived that Ella sent to her friend when her eldest son died.

I think you mean Nicholas, Felix's older brother who died in 1908. You are right however that Nicholas was more handsome & 'manly' instead of pretty like Felix.

Yes. I mean Nicholas. Only one photo of him as a young man exist in Felix's bio. He was a dreamboat. It was sad he died in a duel...

If you go to the Yusupov thread you will see more photos of Nicholas as a child and young man. He was killed in a duel by the husband of his mistress/girlfriend. Very sad indeed.

After Nicholas death, both Zenaida and Felix Yusupov turned to Ella for comfort. It would be very interesting to see if any letters survived between the two woman during this period.
