Marie Feodorovna / Marie Feodorovna and her Orders
« on: March 03, 2014, 02:03:52 AM »
anyone ever seen anything that shows Either Minnie or Alix has the Order of the Elephant?  I came across a site that said she received it upon birth but i'm not sure that is correct.  Minnie wasn't even a Princess of Denmark when she was born.   I couldn't find any pictures either ..  I found a list of all appointments to the order by Reign (monarch) but I do not know how accurate it was.  This list showed that Queen Louise received it in 1902?..

The Stuarts of Scotland / "The Great Harry"

I know that i've read where mary stuart wore the "The great Harry" while queen of france and also at her wedding to Lord Darnley, but I 've never seen a picture of it.. Has anyone else?  What happened to it?

  I know that Falkland Palace is still technicall A "Crown Property"  but has been under the keepership of the Crichton Stuart Family since 1887 and now the National Trust for scotland is the Deputy keeper of the palace, but Can her majesty stay at Falkland if she ever chose to?  Doesn't the queen decide who resides in all "Crown Property" ?

Second, Since Stirling Castle is no longer owned by the state, I can't find any info on who actually owns Edingburgh Castle..  IS E . Castle still crown property?

The Windsors / Current Royal’s Interest in Past Royals

I would guess that HM QEII is very sentimental where her father is concerned based on the letter that he wrote to her the day of her wedding and from all that i have read, HM was very close to both of her parents.  Charles was I think his grandmothers favorite grandchild and being close to her as he was for over 50 years one would think he might have talked over the past and everything about his grandfather with HM TQM.  Has HRH the Prince of Wales ever gone on record talking about his grandfather?

Has HM ever said anything personal about her late father?  When the QM passed away did Prince Charles inherit any of his grandfather's personal effects?

Does anyone know if King Olav inherited Appleton House from his mother upon her death in 1938? Appleton was a gift from King Edward VII to maud upon her marriage. Since it is on the Royal Estate of Sandringham did it revert back to King George VI upon mauds death??
