where is this tomb? very simple indeed.

Did Irene and Alexandra spend much time together (letters etc) discussing their sons hemophilia?

They were close so I would imagine they did. I think it was KR who recorded in his diary that Allix arrived at luncheon very upset after hearing the news of little Henrichs death.

Suprisingly Wikipedia has an interesting page on Irene.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me when Irene's coming out ball was.  According to the Life and Tragedy of Alexandra Feodorovna, Victoria and Ella came out in 1881 when they were eighteen and seventeen years old (I think) and I know that Alix's was when she was sixteen, so there doesn't seem to be a set age, exactly.  When was Irene's and how old was she?

I think according to tradition, a princess usually comes out around that age and usually after confirmation.

Okay, let's start with a question. What was Irene's favorite color?

It seems both Ella & Alicky loved light colour dresses. Irene seemed more practical.

Sorry if this has already been discussed, but which of Irene's siblings was she most close to?

Probably Alix or Ernie because of age, I guessing.
