Yes...I walked into one of those royal hunting boxes, the amount of deer head bones is really unnerving (especially animal lovers).

Louis Ferdinand and Wilhelm


Louis Ferdinand was a century ahead of fashion with his faux hawk hair cut!

Cecilie


The photo was probably taken about the year 1920-22. Yes, poor Cecilie lost her extreme good looks earlier than seems fair. But nature can be cruel. More than nature, though, the ravages of the war and her family’s loss of power and fortune took serious tolls on the family. Dona died, suicides, etc. Cecilie’s loss of beauty was, perhaps, the least devastating result of what they went through.

I believe the handwriting on the photo to be her own. She had a very fancy handwriting style, and it is hard to decipher, but I think it says “To the best with Cecilie’s help”. It may have been a portrait-gift to some charity or organization she was still able to lend her name and support.

i think that in her late years he looked very good, but in the period between 1915 (war) and mids 20s she looked very bad, not phisycally but her hairdo, clothes and stuff wasnt flattering to her at all.

Here some  pictures of her  in the late 1930s-  1940s. I think she looks amazing.

With granddaughter Felicitas

They were definitely not happy together. Maybe relaxed after years of stress and each/both succumbed to a level of tolerance that made for a relationship with minimal tension.

Another reason Cecilie looks different in post WWI photos is that she went from big hair and tiaras and hats to hair that was plastered down with no hats and jewelry. The ornamentation that such can give a person creates a big difference in their appearance.

Can someone post pictures/photos of Kira Harris, please.

In one of these threads there were a few (I remember one with her nanny) but I am afraid I lost it.

Thanks in advance
