If you mean this picture, the lady is Mary, The Princess
Royal, sister of G VI and aunt of QE II
(http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d4/B5218/coronation.jpg)
If you mean this picture, the Princess Royal is to the left in the picture.  I don't know who the lady to the right in the picture is.  I am sure somebody has the answer at his/her fingertips.

She wore a nice fringe tiara to the coronation of GVI but it doesn't look like the one she's wearing at EII's. I believe she inherited some jewels from her mother or perhaps she borrowed them.

Directly next to her is Princess Andrew of Greece (nee Alice of Battenberg), Philip's mother. Behind Queen Mary is, I believe, Earl Mountbatten's eldest daughter Patricia.

I have a picture of a young man, probably Alfred, the only male son of Affie prince of Great Britain, duke of Edinbourgh and later duke of Saxe-Coburg, by his wife María Alexandrovna. But the man pictured had not resemblance with another pics I have seen of young Affie. Can anyone tell me if he is really Affie and when the picture was taken, please?

It's Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (1844-1900).  I think it's a woodcut, isn't it?  I can't tell you the exact date but it looks very similar to one done of him to coincide with his visit to Australia in 1868.

Hello, Luc,
thanks for posting the picture, haven't seen it afore. It's an ardous job to identify some of the wedding-guests, the seat plan for the wedding reception (page 10 in the file) had been a good help. When I am not quite sure I put a ? behind the name. So let's start ...

Front row (left to right): Nada Marchioness of Milford Haven (?), Princess Alice of Greece, Princess Margaret, Prince William of Glouchester, David Mountbatten Marquess of Milford Haven, Princess now Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra of Kent, King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, Henry Duke of Glouchester, Prince Richard of Glouchester, Alice Duchess of Glouchester, ?, Princesses Helena-Victoria and Marie-Louise.

Second row (left to right): Prince Flemming of Denmark (son of Prince Axel and Princess Margaretha of Denmarik (eldest daughter of Carl and Ingeborg of Sweden), Lady Patricia Ramsey, Edwina Countess Mountbatten, Marina Duchess of Kent, Princess later Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, Queen Fredericia of Greece, Queen Mary, Queen Victoria Eiugenia (Ena) of Spain, Queen Ingrid of Denmark, Crown Princess later Queen Louise of Sweden, Irene of Greece Duchess of Aosta (? or her sister Queen Helen of Romania; both ladies were among the guests), ?.

Top row (left to right): King Peter of Jugoslavia, ? (covered by Edwina's hat), Louis Earl Mountbatten, Hon.-Col. Sir Alexander Ramsey, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, King Hakoon of Norway, Prince Regent Charles of Belgium (?), Prince George of Greece, Prince Rene of Bourbon-Parma, King Frederick of Denmark, King Michael of Romania, ?, ?.

It's an ardous job identifying some of the persons for there had been some members of the Danish Royal Family among the guests that are not so well-Known, for example Princess Margaretha of Denmark (who was accompanined by her son Flemming) or Princess Margarethe of Bourbon-Parma, who was accompanied by her husband Prince Rene and her daughter Anne and one or two of her sons).

Also among the guests were member of the Greek Royal Family as Princess Marie (George) of Greece and her daughter Eugenie,  Lady Katherine Brandram and her husband, and Queen Alexandra of Jugoslavia.
I also miss Philip's grandmother, Princess Victoria Marchioness of Milford Haven, and his uncle, Crown-Prince later King Gustaf VI. of Sweden, and some members of the British Royal Family, Princess Alice Countess of Athlone and her husband the Earl of Athlone, her daughter Lady May Abel-Smith and the Marquis and Marchioness of Carisbrooke who were among the wedding guests.

Regards,
Gabriella.

Alright, I've got a question, can someone identify left to right Queen Elizabeth's bridesmaids?
http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/microsites/royalwedding1947/object.asp?grouping=&exhibs=PALACE&object=2805974&row=3&detail=magnify

On the far left I think is Margaret Elphinstone and next to her Lady Pamela Mountbatten.  The next one I don't know and then Alexandra of Kent. Next to Princess Elizabeth stands Princess Margaret, but the ones to the right I can't identify at all.

That leaves Lady Caroline Montagu-Douglas-Scott, Lady Mary Cambridge, Lady Elizabeth Lambart, and Diana Bowes-Lyon.

Quite coincidental, I've just found the photo you was refering to of Frederika !!! ;) on the thread on her started by yourself ! It's named Cousin Lily: Princess Frederika of Hannover and located under the Hohenzollern page 12. The pic is just breathtaking !!! :)

The artist died in 1929 so it can't be from the 50's although I would agree with you that it does indeed look 50s/early 60s.    The painting is titled "Lady in Red"; no idea how they came up with Louise.

Then i doubt he painted this. It cant be cause, as we both agree, the fashion style she s wearing wasnt fashionable till the 50s.

What a mystery!
