She look beautifull!!!

she look realy like her Father!

thanks, where did you found this pic ?

Who was closer to Alice.. to her Mother or to her Father ? i think Mother, because louis was often on the sea.. i think all children was more closer to VHM, speccially Dicki! he adored his Mother!  But how was the realtionship between Alice and her Mother ?

did Louis and victoria choosed self the name from alice ? or did queen Victoria ? because i read somewhere the scene in Windsor Castle, where victoria became her labor pains and birth her child, in this time was the name was already finished, they knew it would be a girl.

hmm yeah you have right.. they look cold..mabe they has a fight..who knows..But didnt told to her Son Philip that Andrew was love on the first sight?

Alice told her mother how romantic, charming and nice he is, but VHm and Louis thougth they are too young to marry..sadly that their love was not so strong like the marrige from VHM &Louis or Nicky and Alix...very sadly..

So many marriages were ruined during exile (Elisabetta & George II, Alexandra & Peter II...), the strain was extremely hard when a man lost his vocation (Prince Nicholas of Greece was fortunate as he was more of an artist than officer). Others developed into a semi-deteched marriage that could only survive by periods apart (Prince & Princess George of Greece, Grand Duke Alexander and Grand Duchess Xenia of Russia) and some only in name only. Princess Alice in her ways of coping (religion) began to alienate her husband (who for his credit remained a dependable father for his daughters (although distant from his only son)).

Lovely photo of Cecilie of Greece, she was such a beautiful woman ! No wonder Don fell for her. Another photo of King George II of Greece and his nephews. Only King Michael I of Romania & Philip, Duke of Edinburgh is still alive in that bunch of Greek Royals...

One question:I know that Philipp's sisters were not present at his wedding,but I remember reading somewhere that they were present,but just not officially and that they were not placed among royals but watched his wedding "from behind".Any royals expert who knows something about this?

P.S.Anyone else heard something similar?

As far as I know Prince Philip's sisters and their families did not take part in his wedding, neither at Westminster Abbey nor at Buckingham Palace, as their husbands were linked with Nazi-Germany.

THey were informed about the wedding by Fredericia of Greece and Marina of Kent.

You are correct. However all of them (except Cecilie who died) were invited to Qurrn Elizabeth II's coronation.

On this thread I learnt that Theodora was "Dolla" and Sophie was "Tiny".

Did the other sisters had any nicknames ?

What about Philipp ?

Could it be the Hon. Andrew Elphinstone?
