Oh, thank you Teddy, you are to kind and such a nice person. I'm just me - very simple & plain & uninteresting! Though I do get lots of compliments about my looks for some reason, but I just take it in my stride!

If they wanted to transform their seat beneath the mighty Grampians from barren to baronial fit for a cold climate, the Fifes should have let themselves be inspired by a Scoto-Dano-Norwegian barony in Louise's sister's kingdom: The Mowatt-Rosenkrantz Barony of Rosendal beneath the looming peak of Malmangernuten.

Considering Louise herself was purported to have drawn up a sketch of what she wanted for an architect to work with, I must admit that I think Mar lodge is rather a let down really! The  house has a positively suburban garden city air about it! The lack of any pretty garden features is also interesting! Perhaps Louise was just not very imaginative!

Oh Katenka_Fyodorovna thank so much for sharing such charming photographs! They are wonderful! I love the one of little Louise smiling on the previous page! Goodness, when she smiled it absolutely transformed her face! I wish smiling had been more acceptable in those days as I think that Louise probably would have appeared far more striking if she had been photographed smiling as an adult.

As to the wonderful photograph of Macduff and his girls! Oh my! I have never seen that one before! It is gorgeous! The girls look positively squeezable and edible if you know what I mean!  Macduff looks so much like he is in proud 'Big Daddy' mode that one can't help but smile! It is quite striking that although they were so very different in looks, both Alexandra and Maud actually bore very strong similarities inherited from their father and his family. Maud was positively Macduff's 'Mini Me' in a skirt and as Alexandra later said herself, her paternal first cousin Alfred Duff Cooper was her in trousers!

Thanks again for posting such lovely photographic treats!!!!! Anything Louise related sends me into a flap of delight and pleasure!

I love that photo of Louise and her girls too! It is NPG!

Louise has a hint of a smile too! Love her gown too! Alix looks like a doll and Maud is positively impish and it is lovely to see her tiny little toes....no socks or boots! Such a nice relaxed photograph! Thank you!

A It is quite striking that although they were so very different in looks, both Alexandra and Maud actually bore very strong similarities inherited from their father and his family. Maud was positively Macduff's 'Mini Me' in a skirt and as Alexandra later said herself, her paternal first cousin Alfred Duff Cooper was her in trousers!



Alexandra also looks to me rather like her maternal cousin David - I think it's the blond hair and slightly lazy eyelids, more pronounced one side than the other. David and George were the only ones of George V's children to inherit some of his features, it seems to me; all the rest were carbon copies of Queen Mary.
