Do you mean Elizabeth and Frederick's children, Marc?

There are pictures of the Winter Queen, the younger Elizabeth, Karl-Ludwig, Rupert, and Sophia that can be found at:

There is also a portrait of Lord Craven at the site that was painted by Louise, as well as many portraits of the Stuart family.

Hope this helps.

Anne seems to have regarded neither Elizabeth nor Charles with any particular affection - she lavished attention on Henry. Still, Elizabeth was very upset when she died.

As for Henrietta Maria, she seems to have gotten on well with Elizabeth. When Henrietta accompanied her daughter to the Hague, she met Elizabeth frequently and they were on good terms.

Elizabeth was very close to her nice Mary, the Princess Royal, whom she called 'my best neece.' In fact, most people seem to think she was closer to Mary than she was to her own children . . .


She also had a favourite nephew, James, Duke of York. She apparently called him "Tint", though I don't know why.  :-*

Royal nicknames are almost always inexplicable.  ;D
