I don't think it has ever been conclusively explained but it was said to have been a scar that had resulted from a childhood illness; scrofula was one such illness that has been suggested and there were fears in some quarters that it might suggest tubercular tendancies and therefore prove an obstacle to her marriage to the Prince of Wales.

However, QV was assured that it was merely the result of a neglected cold, although I have no idea what that means - whether it was a medical procedure that was carried out as a result of the cold or something else.


Ok, Thank you.

For more information, Aliss_Kande, refer to the other Queen Alexandra thread.
The "scar" is dicussed in depth there.  


I don't need a long explaination, just a quick explaination, that's all.  And I got it, so now I'm happy.   ;D

Let's see some more Alexandra Pictures! :)

I wondered if we could possibly start a new thread on this topic as the first is extremely long now and takes time to load.

Does anyone happen to have a picture of the coronation portrait of alexandra that hangs in buckingham palace?

Boffer, if you look down the index a little, you will see that a thread called "more Queen Alexandra" has already been started.  :)

Now my head's spinning.

Please lets stick with Queen Alexandra Part 2.  

Unless, of course, we have any volunteers prepared to severely edit the previous threads down to at least a quarter of their lengths.

Perhaps the time has come to think of creating new threads for Prince Eddy and Queen Mary.

It must be very disheartening waiting for ages for these unwieldy threads to load.   It is a matter of consideration for everyone.

Yes--I think we can draw several comparisons between her and Diana, beauty and fashion-wise.

Can someone post a photo or two of Alex and Affie together?  I know they were photographed together, particularly at the time when he had a crush on her, and they made a charming couple themselves.

Thanks!




This is one of at least 3 poses--one with Alix, Affie, Eddy & George; the other with Affie, Eddy & George--from the sitting. All 3 were published in various contemporary magazines and in all 3 Affie was ID'd as Bertie.    :-/

Running dry on Eddy? Whatever will Grace and Mrs E do?  ;D

Did Alix like Arthur ? I guess they were not close due to his chosing of a Prussian wife.  :(

I'll probably start to develop some sort of bizarre withdrawal symptoms, I shouldn't wonder... ::)

But not to worry, people, there'll always be some unknown, unseen Eddy photo or personal item out there somewhere... :D :-*

I doubt anyone will complain about seeing the same photographs two, three even ten times.

Duplication should not be a concern.   Never forget, there are new people joining all the time.   Why should they be denied the pleasures?

So... 'More of Queen Alexandra' please.
