Thank you both ;) It's indeed Marie Henriette ! Look at this photo, we see that it is the same dress as she's wearing at the marriage:

I don't think that's her wedding dress, the style of the gown is the 1860s...

I mean that it's the dress she's wearing at the marriage of Alice. Look at the details of the train. ;)

Thank you Eric and Svetabel ! They were both in their mid-seventies... ;D

Maybe it's quite hard to see, but does anyone know who the ladies and gentlemen between the pillars are ?
The coronation of king Edward VII:
