One of the least written grand duchess of all time. I think she would merit more than what have been offered in books already...

Nice heavily beaded dress!! It reminds me more of later 1920s heavily beaded dresses, but she looked lovely in it.I don't think I had seen a picture of her in this dress before.

Marie in looks took after her Aunt Sandy (Furstin Alexandra of Hohenlohe-Langenburg) & grandmother Grand Duchess Marie Alexandrovna.

Unfortunetly the caption only said they were in costume but did not say why.

Was she really called Sandy in the family? I've only ever read Sandra.

She signed her name "Sandy" in her letters to Missy.

Interesting, thank you. Her children seem to have had a fairly close relationship with Victoria Melita's children--at least based on photos I've seen (I haven't read anything regarding it). There are a number of photos with Kyra and Marie with some of Alexandra's daughters. Supposedly, the relationship with Marie's children was a little tenser--at least with Ileana. I think that was in either a Royalty Digest article or The Grand Duchesses. Either way, I think it was John Wimbles who wrote of it.
