Indeed. Irene did not appeared to be overly concerned about getting married unlike her more eager sisters Helen & Catherine.

Paradoxically, while staying in the shadow of her older sister, Irene who rarely left her and often accompanied her in her trips, was known so wel by journalists and was under the light of their objectives. If she had been less close to Helen, there would doubtless be no more photos of her before her marriage.

Indeed, but her younger sister Katherine who wasn't close to her elder sisters did got plenty of photos before her marriage.

Irene was Helen's shadow. I wonder about Irene's personality. Helen did not talk much about her sisters in her autobiography with Arthur Gould Lee.

All her sisters and most of her cousins, Eugénie including.
