Here is a representation of the regiment's uniform. The officer's version is on the left, with gorget and 'Swedish' cuffs.

Presumably their lady colonel-in-chief would have worn a suitably tailored verson of the tunic with a long skirt.

It is dad we will not see her wearing something like that. For one who changes dresses three times in a ball. An absence of this image is really interesting...

No idea. The Grand Duchess didn't go into details of her 'uniform'.

I wonder if she talked to Ducky or VMH about it ? They did discuss clothes in other instances.
