Alexander Ramsay lost a leg in WW2, but nevertheless continued to wear the kilt. He married Lady Saltoun, a peer in her own right and Chief of Clan Fraser.

Thanks. I read that Lady Pat was a strict mother, just like Louise was to her.

Both sister had a melancholic look, making them look kinda "depressed", but both were cute (althought i find Patsy prettier than Daisy)

It appears that the "brooch" is the Regimental Cap Badge of "Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry", of which she was Colonel-in-Chief.  AP

The photo is originally of the 2 of them sitting side by side on a couch. It was published at the time of an interview or documentary (??) on TV that showed the 2 together and talking about their life. Majesty magazine once reprinted the full photo many years later.

Since there was a good bit of info on just Patricia on her parents's thread, I went ahead and split those posts off to the one created today on Princess Patricia.

haha ok, i hope they're going to be more posts however. I'm gonna start a new topic, wasnt her marriage a "hot" topic during the early 1900's?

The first one is actually one of those 'blacked out' background photos. It was from a larger group photo taken at, I believe, Sandringham, during a shooting party. Perhaps the one the Kaiser attended in 1907? I can't remember for sure. The 2nd one is from a sitting she did with her brother and parents.

 I think Patsy photographed better from the side--she had a lovely profile. She's probably the British royal (after the 2 queens, Alexandra and Mary) I have the most photos of. She was so tremendously popular in her day and her image was widely available--reaching the zenith with her wedding in 1919. (If you can get the wedding issues from any of the major magazines of the day they are chock full of fabulous photos of her throughout her life.) There are a lesser number throughout the 20s and then it became much rarer to find images of her as she retreated into a more private life. Robert Golden's books have some good images of her in middle age.

Yes. She was so stunning that her uncle wanted her to be Queen of Spain, but she wasn't interested and chose to ignore Alfonso XIII during the welcome dinner.

She evidently didn't believe the stories about frogs turning into handsome princes if you kiss them.
