I think it is possibly Andrei. I haven't seen any pictures of him in profile, but he certainly had that sort of receding hairline and a moustache. There are pictures of him in civilian clothes after 1920 in Coryne Hall's 'Imperial Dancer', which could provide a comparison.

Andrei had more heavy features and larger eyes and...all in all that's not him, no any slight resemblance.

A brighter version:



Alexandra Dmitrievna Romanova, born Pokotilova, wife of vice-minister of Finance Petr Mikhajlovich Romanov (1851-1911)

 Mr.Paul Kulikovsky thinks that's a portrait of Queen Olga of Greece...hmmm,unlikely. Personally I think that's really a Dagmar's portrait but not a good one.

Thank you for an answer.I would never thought to be a Romanov in the first place,but since it appeared in Romanov portrait gallery it seems it's one of them...

Not a great likeness though!

-----

I just need to confirm a suspicion of mine now. Royal Collection Trust owns the following two images (these I am linking were shared on tumblr by "carolathhabsburg", who is also a well-known member here)



The Royal Collection Trust identified the boy in the first picture as Dmitri Konstantinovich, and the boy in the second as Vyacheslav Konstantinovich. Am I right to think they have it mixed up and it is actually quite the opposite?

You are right. The first picture is Viacheslav, next it Dmitriy.

Thank you Svetabel. Here goes another Royal Collection question. They labelled the following image as Elizaveta Mavrikievna with her two eldest sons, but the lady does not look like Elizaveta to me?
