'Some Indian character?'   :o

He's standing pretty close to the future King and the bridal couple so he must be high-ranking, I'd think. Not even one of her Majesty's attendants. Does anyone know of Indian royalty present at the wedding?

BTW, the photo is in the Gernsheim book on Edward and Alexandra if anyone wants to get it. I first saw it when I was in college, along with the one they did on QV, and both are positively dripping with good photos. Many I have since seen (some I even own now thanks to the Internet which didn't exist way back then!) but back then I almost passed out from joy.  ;)  I own a copy of both books and I still enjoy taking them out to look at the number of photos gathered in one spot. Some photos I've still only seen in those books.

Nice listing on eBay of Alix with baby Alexandra.  I haven't seen this one before but I'm sure many of you have.

Has this one been posted before? Excuse the bad quality, taken with my phone.

The Duke of Fife and Princess Louise in 1890 standing on the terrace outside the Reception Hall at Sheen Lodge. Apparently they lived at Sheen Lodge until 1905. Sadly it was demolished in 1965!! :( :(
Picture from Princess Victorias album.

Eddie you absolute angel! I had never seen any photographs of Eat Sheen Lodge before! Macduff sold off a fair portion of outlying estates during the reign of Edward VII and shrewdly invested the proceeds. It is very frustrating that we have so few photographs of East Sheen, it reminds me of the elusive Ribsden Holt of which I have never seen a photograph either!

I knew you would appreciate it too Margot dear! It was a great find & I loved seeing Sheen Lodge too (finally!). It's from Toria's album in the Royal Collection, no doubt there are other photos of the house too in the albums, the mind boggles!!

Brilliant photograph Eddie! I have never seen a photograph of Sheen Lodge either. Lovely, thank you very much for sharing! Have you seen Toria's (entire) album in the Royal Collection? So jealous if you did... ;)

Haha...yes Grace we would definitely do that! Even if we could see it only for half an hour. I would really would like to see her album. But weren't some albums of Toria sold in an auction? At least I remember reading that on Sotheby's or Christies site. I quoted something from an album (or information from the auction site) if I remember correctly. Offcourse Toria must have made several albums during her lifetime. So some of them still survive in the Royal Collection?

ha ha, no I wish! I would certainly be sharing all the pictures with you all if I had RN!!!! I will scan the picture properly when I get chance and hopefully achieve a sharer image.

I also came across an aerial photo of Sheen Lodge, the place was huge!! With a Chinese teahouse in the grounds (Sadly destroyed in a fire in 1973) where dear Louise must have sat on summer days and sipped her tea!! Maybe it was near the pond with the frogs in and close to where George V asked for May's hand in marriage.....imagination is a wonderful thing!!
