The first lady wasn't Princess Beatrice.

Thanks for replies, I did doubt it. Found an image of Beatrice on a cigar box:

Also this labelled as her when it certainly isn't:

Could this be Cowes Week, hence the yachting caps and blazers?

Nice newspaper photo. I wonder if Alfonso got along with Ena's brothers.

Keith--were these from the Daily Mail?  I found the British newspapers gave very good coverage of Maurice's death with some very unique photos of him. The Spanish newspapers as well given his relationship to their Queen. Leopold's death just a few years later was much quieter in terms of coverage.

From both the Daily Mail and the Daily Sketch.

As to the photo with Helena Victoria and the yachting caps on the men, it says it was a charity coconut shy, whatever that may be.

I think I may have posted this one before, but couldn't find it. Ena and Helena Victoria look to be in the same outfits as the above photo. The back of the postcard lists this as walking across the grounds at Osborne. I'm guessing the event took place there. That is Helena Victoria behind the woman in the middle.

I thought some might be from them. I bought a bunch on ebay but got outbid for the Maurice batch. Hmm.... ;)  I had to track it down another way. I hadn't realized that they had fairly decent photos before then--I thought it was mostly text. Now I've found something else to hunt! Thanks for sharing.  :)
