Ella felt that as part of the Imperial Family, it was her duty to appear in public alongside her family. She had been critized for that.

She can't avoid escaping from critics because she was a nun that time. I feel sad for her.  She takes that as a responsibility,not a way to fame. .

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!

Sorry if I'm quoting photos.
What is this dressing-up for? Was there an important occasion on the day they were photographed here?

It was for the famous 1903 ball. There's a thread on the ball itself (in the Imperial Family section) which might give more detail about their outfits.

Yes, there is thread '1903' including many photos of that event. Also, there is one of Ella alone, I think, not sure.

Oh thank you all for telling me there's a thread for that.
IMO, now I know why QVicky wasn't so impressed of Ella's husband.
It's really rue that Serge's eyes conceal something we don't know.
If he only gained more pounds, I'm sure he's gonna look handsome.

Serge is on the carriage.

that's a good picture. Thanks for sharing it. I've always wondered at the source of the pictures marked "archive photos" - is it part of the Russian archives?

The photos with such watermark has been bought by a German site/company from the GARF (State Russian Archive).

It's wonderful that this German company is buying rights to some GARF pics since it's a source of income for GARF. I'm assuming the fee that the German company paid/pays goes back to maintaining the archives at GARF.

Very blurry photo of the Grand Ducal pair, from the stock of GDss Elizaveta in the Archives



GD Sergei is unusually in civil clothes.
