Thanks for those Royal Netherlands, some real treats from you as usual. I don't think it matters if you do post pictures that have been posted before, you never know when we may lose previous threads ;)
God save the Queen !

I always loved that Alexandra wore black during that pre-marriage visit out of respect for Queen Victoria. It was a classy move that definitely put QV more in favor of the marriage.

She appears to be wearing her favourite serpent bracelet? Wish that was on display somewhere rather than just in the vault, never seeing the light of day :)

Has anyone one notice the following or is it just me; 

Photos of Alexandra though old have mordern look as if she was modeling for a "fashion spread" in Vogue whereas all photos of Queen Mary look old as they should!  ??? ??? ???  I think it is the cut of Alexandra's clothes!

She was always very fashionable, beautiful, and social. Like her sister, she built her life on this, very much. She seems to have been very young, both in looks and in thought throughout her life. She was deaf, and her husband was quite a ladies man, but she was a typical lady of Edwardian society. It really was her era, she was born in the right era.

She knew how to dress (like the jackets and later dog-collars) and set up trends. Queens after her like May and Cookie are more indivual and pay less attention to fashion. In this her niece Marina, Duchess of Kent, Princess Margaret and Princess Di were her true heirs.  ;)

Do you mean Louise Fife's daughter Alexandra? Yes she was very beautiful like her grandmother.

Queen Alexandra wasn't totally deaf was she? I mean she could speak fine and she didn't use sign language!
