Yes, appearances are often deceptive. Keeping up appearances was still one of the lessons that could shoot the royals of their princely education.

I believe the 2nd photo, of Elizabeth, came after her illness when she was so sickly looking and thin. She had the rather severe bob then too--didn't she have to have her hair cut off due to her illness?

I think the tiara came from Marie Coburg, her Russian grandmother.
