Note how the men driving the carriage are perfectly clean shaven, unlike most all men of that timeframe.

Viktoria Luise was definitely one of the more attractive and beautiful members of the larger European/British royal family. She has her own look; she did not inherit any of the often-seen facial features that lend themselves to dowdiness and plainness such as the classic Hannoverian chin, elongated nose, etc. She and her sister in law were surely the quintessential  "fairy tale" princesses.

I have read her memoirs. It was good, not the best memoir I have read but nice (the BEST memoirs out there  is Prince Christopher of Greece memoirs'!) She seems like a nice elegant lady, but quite full of herself.

Nice photos, but haven't you got some about when she was a girl?
