Though a composite photo, it is rather nice indeed. And I cannot help noticing that Duchess Marie is holding a brindle French Bulldog by his collar and that the same lovely dog appears with Maria Coburg on others photos takne at the time of Sandra' engagement and wedding. One of these photos was published by Sophie Gordon in Noble Hounds and Dear Companions a few years ago and created a stir in the little world of French Bulldog people ! Composite or genuine, always pleasant to discover " a new version " of this photo !

I winder if Marie Coburg or Baby Bee were photographed in the palace. In another photo stands Cyrill. Was Ducky in the photos too ?

Answer to an old question: those pictures were taken in january/february 1900. Alexandra and Ernst came to St Petersbourg ans spent a month with their relatives. Neither Beatrice nor Victoria-Melita were there.

Don't think Baby Bee ever go back to Russia after her failed romance with Misha.
