The last picture posted says "meeting in the west" which based on the uniformed Kaiser and Crown Prince, along with the outfit Dona is wearing, the year is 1916-1918 and takes places along the Rhine valley or environs. Dona looks smaller and more frail; the war years were not good for her at all. In spite of this, I think her appearance is extremely stately and elegant. The style change did her justice.

Beautiful! Interesting that both Dona & Queen Mary started out as "HSH Princess Victoria"!!

The byline of the card would translate effectively to "Faithfully remembering". The Empress dedicated much of her time to remembering the troops and by virtue of her son being in uniform in the background, I suspect this is the grave of a fallen soldier.

Which two of her boys are these? I'd hazard a guess that the elder is Eitel Friedrich.

My pleasure Carolath!!!! Glad you like.
 It appears to be from the same sitting as the one you posted a while back! Dated Nov. 1899 I think! :)
Thank you for identifying the sons! I did wonder.
Also, I was wondering, is it correct to call Augusta "Empress Wilhelm" like Victoria is named Empress Frederick??

It seems to be a personal preference--Empress Augusta (consort of Wilhelm I) was never called Empress Wilhelm. I think it had to do with Vicky's desire to ever-celebrate and memoralize Fritz's memory.
