Yes. Marina was the most photogenic of the Royal Family at that time. Later the Princesses Elizabeth & Margaret Rose togather with Marina's daughter Princess Alexandra became more popular.

Isn't that one of the Schleswig-Holstein princesses (perhaps Marie Louise) next to them?

I wonder where Maidstone Museum is ? Love to visit it the next time I go to England. Marina's daughter Princess Alexandra was photographed wearing one of these diamond stars.

Maidstone is in Kent, and within the London commuter belt, so you should be able to get there quite easily from London by train.

Princess Alexandra was photographed by the great Cecil Beaton wearing all 3 of the stars

Yes. Alexandra wore them as a young woman, but hasn't been seen for over 20 years. It may have been sold. Was the diamond stars a gift from her relatives ?

Indeed I will take some pictures. I wonder what more stiff on Marina apart from that portrait.
