Thanks Marc for the information. It is definitely Queen Marie of Hannover and not her daughter Mary. There is a funny story that George V (of Hannover) who was quite blind almost chose the wrong sister (as they were all sitting in front of him) and tripped...

Well,maybe...but confusing fact is that this portrait was painted in 1868 and by that time Queen Marie would be 50 years old and the woman doesn't look like 50 years old:



In that same period(1866-1868),as written above,Tilt was "ordered"(by command) to paint Queen Victoria in 1867 and some of her children and extended family members!

Yes. That is problematic. The only reason is maybe it was a "highly idealized" portrait.

I've seen many portrais of aged women with idealized features...)) Why not to flatter a 50 years old Queen?

Well,could be also that...but could be also that mother and daughter looked alike and that daughter was painted to look like her mother("highly idealized" as Eric said)

To me they looked similar just Queen Marie had a bit more round face:

Concerning the identity,one might never know and be sure as there are so many mislabeled photos and portraits circulating around the web!

A week ago Hereditary Prince Ernst August (junior) of Hanover married the London-based Russo-Czech cat suit designer (brand EKAT) Ekaterina Malysheva during ceremonies in Hannover and at Marienburg. His father was not present at the wedding due to conflicting opinions about the management of family properties.
See http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/5083998.html

Malysheva (Малышева) is a common Russian family name that can be translated as Young, Child, Little etc. There was a noble family with this name (see https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9C%D0%B0%D0%BB%D1%8B%D1%88%D0%B5%D0%B2%D1%8B, but it is not likely that the Princess of Hanover, who was raied in Prague as the daughter of a Russian businessman, belongs to it.

A Slavophone Princess of Hanover raised on the banks of the Elbe's tributary the Vltava / Moldau should pay a visit to the ancient Slavophone region of the Electorate of Hanover: The Hanoverian Wendland (= Slavic land), where the last speaker of Polabian (po Labe = by the Elbe) died in 1756.

Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

In an interview with Tatler she says she was born and lived her first years in Apatiy on the Kola Pensinsula in the Murmansk region, where her father was a scientist. But she attended American international school in Prague and speaks English better than Russian. Nonetheless she assisted with Russian-English translation for a documentary about Pussy Riot.
