The label said "imperial child". Anyone knows which one?

This is the Tsar and Empress arriving onboard German Imperial yacht Hohenzollern.  The German sailor is  wearing an  old fashioned straw hat  from the last century.

is that cousin Willy greeting Nicky?

Concerning Reply # 283:   IF (and this is a big "IF") the photograph of the child is still in/on its original cardboard frame/backing, IMO it is not Russian, because the crown is clearly NOT the Russian Imperial crown (to which GD Pavel A. would have been entitled even as a child).  Even allowing for "artistic llicense," I have never seen the Russian Imperial Crown depicted as such.  Off-hand, the crown here appears to be close in depiction to the Italian or one of the other European crowns, such as Spain.  (Of course, Italy and Spain were  never "Imperial" per se, thus the labeling as an "imperial child" would not be correct for Italy or Spain.)  All in all, until it is properly identified, it is entirely POSSIBLE that it is a pastiche OR that it is not even a royal or imperial child, but simply a period photograph of a well-born child, placed in/on the frame.     AP

Does anyone know who the people are in this photo? It was in Anna Vyrubova's album.

I think that's Vyrubova's sister and niece.

Not sure about this portrait or photo...It looks like the same style as the black and white portrait of Maria Pavlovna-younger...It looks to me like Prince Ioann of Russia,but not sure:

I would like to know who is the lady in the middle holding an umbrella and loking back, could she be the empress or duchess Elizabeth?
Do you know someone else?
Thank you for your help.

These pictures are labled as Grand Duchess Maria G, but they don't look like her. The second one I believe looks like Zinaida Skobeleva, the mistress of Grand Duke Alexei, but I'm not sure. Help please

Of course that's not GDss Maria Georgievna. I can't say who's the 1st one, the 2nd one indeed has a slight resemblance to Zenaida Skobeleva-Beauharnais but seems Zenaida didn't have such a long and large nose.

I have a question on this painting:
Ball at the Assembly Hall of the Nobility in St Petersburg on 23 February 1913
Kardovsky, Dmitry Nikolaevich

Who are the members of the imperial family seated and standing under the red canopy ?
Seated:
Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna - Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna - Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna - ? - ? - Empress Alexandra Feodorovna

Maybe some of you know who the other two women are !
