Along with some of their children, including future spouses Paul (man in back) & Friedrike (little girl in white). Margaret of Hesse is on the far right.

Mossy? She looks young. Did VL have a enduring relationship with Mossy and if so, do you think VL regretted losing her grandmother so early?

No. In her bio, she indicated that her Greek cousins got away with much more mischief that she and her brothers. A kind of jealousy here.

In her autobiography, VL didn't seem to look back at her grandmother with any fondness or sentimentality. Her passages on Vicky are rather brusque.

I don't think she knew her grandmother well, I think Dona and Willy were not exactly singing Vicky's praises...

She was so fashionable, she could pull of 1910's style and just as easily the 1930's.

Also great photo's thanks for posting them.

This looks to be about the 1960s. both Viktoria Luise and Louis Ferdinand look very good.

Your quite right HerrKaiser, she would have been in her 70-ies in the 1960's yet she doesn't look older than 65.
