This Russian Orthodox newspaper put together a collection of photos to commemorate his life.

The hunting shot, with everyone in tweeds, is new to me.
It features Tsar Nicholas II, Ernst-Ludwig, and...?
It that King Edward on the right?
How about the younger chap on the left?

I thought the fellow with the beard was Alfred rather than Edward VII. They looked quite similar.

Any idea when this was taken? Young Alfred died in 1899, aged 25, and Ernst and Victoria Melita's marriage was on the rocks from 1897.

they do, especially so in that photograph

I think it's 1899, when Nicholas visited Darmstadt. They wear traditional German hunting hats
