Besides the telegram from Grand Duchess George, Queen Alexandrine also received telegrams from her mother urging her to help her uncles. Harald Scavenius was allowed to visit the GD's in jail during 1918. He smuggled letters from and to the prison, and tried his best to free the GD's.
Christian X told the Danish government that he would pay for the GD's stay in Denmark if the government could help free the GD's and bring them to Denmark.
Harald Scavenius also tried to help Queen Olga and Princess Olga Paley. Marie Georgievna wrote that he and his staff did more to help the IF then anyone else.

Is it Scavenius who was the one who supposedly secured the release of the 4 GDs imprisoned in St Peter & Paul only to arrive to a newspaper report saying they'd been executed the day before?

I have a question in the Christian IX chapel at Roskilde Cathedral there lies buried Christian IX and Queen Louise in a double tomb, Fredrick VIII and Queen Louise in another double tomb and then Christian X and Queen Alexandrine.  My question are they buried in sarcophagi or are those tombs just
memorials and they are buried elsewhere in the cathedral.  (I hope this makes sense) :-/

The story of Alexandrine showing Helena the door is a story of spirit and real ethical character.

Decent people stuck together.

Queen Alexandrine was very fond of her brother and sister who all shared the same "Russian" humour. The Grand Duke Friedrich Franz IV of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and his family stayed a year in Denmark after november 1918, and she visited them very often. When he was dying in 1945 after the end of WWII Alexandrine went incognito to see him.

Some more pictures...
The young couple (Alexandrine wasn't very popular during her first years in Denmark but later it changed).

I know  the Grand Duke died at his married daughters home in Schleswig-Holstien...but did the family leave Schwerin before the English (ie may 1945) arrived or before they pulled out & the soviet take over?

Yes, really fantastic :D

I find a certain resemblance between Alexandrine and her sister Cécilie, although, in my opinion, Cécilie was much prettier at least being young before she grows bigger.

This is up for sale and listed as Alexandrine by Tuxen but it doesn't look like her to me. Plus, did Tuxen paint her? She didn't marry into the Danish royal family for several years after his famous 1892 family portrait and I don't know if he did any individual work for them after that.
