Maria Christina was pure battenberg and Beatriz, even tho she looked like her paternal grandfather, was beautiful

The way I always remember who is who (of the daughters) is that they looked the complete opposite of the grandmothers they were named after. Beatriz looked more like Maria Christina and vice versa.

Yes, it's her. She is wearing her grandmother-in-law's ruby parure (from Bolin?) that had been a wedding gift to Marie from her father Alexander II. It was left to Margarita's mother-in-law Alexandra of Hohenlohe-Langenberg and then onwards.

Yes. Sandra asked her mother to give the parure to her (much to the dismay of her other sisters). The interesting is that I never saw a photo of Sandra wearing this ruby parure. However it seems to be a favourite of Margarita (Sandra's daughter-in-law). The piece was sadly sold off and the ruby flowers from the tiara dismantaled.  :(

The ID on this couple is King Alexander I and Aspasia Manos, but they don't like them at all. Would anyone know who they are?

No way in heck! It doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to either one save that Alexander had a moustache as well.
