I forgot who much she looks like her brother Alexandra III.

Did she more resemble her mother or father?

Not really. Her father was quite handsome and slim while her mother was delicate.

Yes, and also Alexander III too. But the ones that looked more like Alexander II were slim like Serge & Paul, Alexis sort of in between.

Are there any books currently available about the Grand Duchess?

I have just started reading "Dearest Missy". Containing the letters between the Duchess of Coburg and her daughter Marie. It's quite an interesting read, the Duchess appears quite a loving mother, which I didn't really expect.
Grief is the price we pay for love.

She was...But also she was very demanding and judgmental. However when her children was in trouble, Maria could be counted for help. Especially in the lives of Missy, Ducky and Baby Bee.

I would include Sandra also,who was the least known of the sisters-we know she left her big amount of jewels which didn't please too much her sisters!

She was not the best of daughters nor she was of sisters. Baby Bee wrote that Sandra swindle her mother out of her jewels and later refuse to help her.

I have seen it used in the Van Der Kiste book. I wonder where that paining is right now...
