Also the ladies are in black, so a mourning group.

Not the Kaiser's jubilee then.

Bear in mind that this picture was taken in the days when exposures were measured in minutes, and keeping a small child still for that long was a major problem.

The left arm is already quite noticeably short.

That s called "Hidden mother" even when it wasnt the mother the one who held the baby still.

Anyway, first time i see a "hidden mother" like this one, heavily edited to delete the whole body of the person holding the baby!!

About Ella and Wilhelm II - has anyone seen any letters she wrote about him?? Everyone seems to say that she did not return his feelings at all - but have we seen anything FROM her?

Also, are there any letters of any kind known between them - after all, they are cousins and probably wrote sometime.
