I think that what affected Grand Duchess Marie most of all after her exile, was her loss of position. I dont think that she lived in poverty like many others. If one Googles Contrexeville, her villa in France, you will see that she must have lived very well. It is now a hotel.

Well, she did manage to smuggle her vast collection of jewells out of Russia via a diplomatic bag (I'm working from memory here), and she finally left Russia on February, 1920 and died on September that same year. Maybe you are right, for her, rank was everything and although she was a Grand Duchess by her own right, by the time she left Russia, the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin was no longer either

Well, the court version of it anyway I guess.  They never really were quite as interesting as the peasant version, but you wouldn't see a head-dress like that out outside the Russian court. The Traditional court dress was a different beast (see the marriage dress as top end example)
