She looks to be wearing some nice Jewels in that picture!  :)


She wore a nice fringe tiara to the coronation of GVI but it doesn't look like the one she's wearing at EII's. I believe she inherited some jewels from her mother or perhaps she borrowed them.

A selection of Lady Patricia's gems were sold by one of the big auction houses (Sotheby's/Christies)after her death. They included  (from memory) a superb diamond rivere ,a big Edwardian bow brooch,numerous multi coloured clips and brooches and two tiara's.

Directly next to her is Princess Andrew of Greece (nee Alice of Battenberg), Philip's mother. Behind Queen Mary is, I believe, Earl Mountbatten's eldest daughter Patricia.

[size=12]Thanks!  I didn't recognize her without a habit.  I thought that it who it should be based on position in the photo, but I thought she was thinner during this period. [/size]

It is nice to see that this is running a little faster today.

I believe it's his second daughter Pamela.  And isn't the other bridesmaid pictured Margaret Elphinstone (later Rhodes), Princess Elizabeth's first cousin?

It could very well be. 'Modern' royals aren't my strong point. I usually like having some kind of ID in front of me.  :)

I have a picture of a young man, probably Alfred, the only male son of Affie prince of Great Britain, duke of Edinbourgh and later duke of Saxe-Coburg, by his wife Marķa Alexandrovna. But the man pictured had not resemblance with another pics I have seen of young Affie. Can anyone tell me if he is really Affie and when the picture was taken, please?

It's Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (1844-1900).  I think it's a woodcut, isn't it?  I can't tell you the exact date but it looks very similar to one done of him to coincide with his visit to Australia in 1868.

Could anyone identify the woman at the left with the long purple train ?

I couldn't get it to magnify but isn't it the fuure Queen Marie Henriette of the Belgians?

She does resemble Marie Henriette.
