It's in the Royal collection. The website indicates that it's still in their possession.

Did Marie convert from the Russian Orthodox religion when she married Alfred?

No, she never converted, she was a staunch Orthodox.

when I visited Coburg in 1998, I went to Rosenau, where the guides show you a room which Marie had converted into an Orthodox chapel.

Thank you Svetabel and Ann. 

I assume that her children were raised in the Anglican faith. Would that be correct?

Yes they were raised in the Anglican Faith in England, but when they were decamp to Coburg, they switched to the Lutheran Church. Both Missy & Ducky were confirmed in the Lutheran Church in Coburg.

Interestingly, my Air Cadet squadron has just moved into new premises shared with a Territorial Army unit. One of their photographs on the landing is of Alfred of Coburg as a Lieutenant in 1895. I will take a picture of the photo and try to post it.

He looks distinctly chinless and immature!

That is really cool! I love it when one just stumbles across royal memorabilia, etc....

Marie also had an Orthodox Chapel in Clarence House. It doesn't exist anymore though.

Indeed Just like the Catholic Chapel at Somerset House used by Henrietta Maria & Catherine of Braganza.

Showing off her wealth ? She did have a bigger collection than her successor "Dick" (Viktoria Adeheld, Duchess of Coburg).
