What pictures (after 1861) have the most of Queen Victoria's children together - and which have the most of their spouses?

I know Tuxen's Jubilee painting has everybody who was still alive - not Alice and Leopold.

But I'm really looking for more photographs, though I don't mind if anyone shares paintings/drawings.

I've seen the group in Coburg 1865.

I didn't really know what thread to put this in but...
I saw a video on Youtube once that had a fuller version - all of this film and more - but I can't find it.
Does anyone know where it is?

Olga Nicholaievna / question about a letter

What "nieces" are referred to in this letter?

Olga Nikolaevna to Olga Alexandrovna
21 June 1917

My darling, dear Godmother,

Am terribly touched by your sweet letter and heartfelt words. I wanted to have a heart?to?heart talk with you when you were with us in Kiev, but there wasn't the opportunity.

Poor Mama is terribly bored; can't at all get used to the new life and the circumstances here, although on the whole we can all be grateful that we will be together and in the Crimea. So horribly sad to think about our dear nieces and their parents and about our homeland. Little Dolls!! Now it's doubly hard for you, my darling Aunt Olga. May God preserve you.

A kiss to you and Mitia. Love you sincerely and with all my heart.

Your loving Goddaughter,

Alexandra Feodorovna / Letter during engagement

Does anyone know what is being refered to in these letters? They are quoted in "A lifelong Passion" on pages 61 and 63 and in "king, Kaiser and Tsar" and "The Last Tsarina". Dates are in old style.

From Nicholas April 23 1894 "...I see my sweet girly-dear looking back at me, sometimes with a sly look, which makes me think of a certain house on the road from Coburg to Ketchendorf on the left!!!"

From Alix April 26 1894
"You naughty thing, how dare you say that about the sly look and the house on the left! Be ashamed of yourself, I wish I were there to pinch you for it."

What happened in that "house on the left?" In "the last Tsarina" it said "they shared an erotic interlude". Alix was a virgin when they married wasn't she?

Does anyone know of any pictures of Philip with his grandmother? I've searched on here and can't find any.
