You can get it in one of the supplements of the ILN--I think either the Silver Wedding Anniversary one or the Coronation of Edward VII. It's a full page and very nice.

i think its a portrait based on the photography, not a handtinted pic.

Another nice one. Thanks for posting. It seems like Alexandra had a liking for little pins of peals, diamonds and gold on the neck of her blouse.

Looks like it has been retouched in the face...

Perhaps, Eric, but nothing like the re-touching (or complete overhauling) which goes on in celebrity photos these days!

Yes. It is photos like these spread the rumor of her surprising youth...when she became a grandma.

Well, it wasn't photos only, as there seem to be many accounts by people who saw her in the flesh who remarked on her very youthful looks, lovely colouring etc. - family members, people closely associated with her and even strangers.  And she would have had adult grandchildren by the time this photo was taken.

This was common with Alexandra's photos from about the late 1880s onwards.  It's hard to find un-retouched photos of her as she grew older. She worked hard to retain her youthful beauty as far as her public image was concerned...rather like Queen Elizabeth 1st.

Well she still look good for her age, but not THAT good.
