It is speculated that Queen Alexandra's stars passed by descent to the Kents but this has never been verified to my personal satisfaction, perhaps Ashdean will know for sure?! Here is a link about QA's stars  http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/queen-alexandra/stars-diamond.htm

To be honest, they might not even be the same stars. Marina's stars seemed to be a bit more stylized than those of Queen Alexandra.

Portrait of the Duke in uniform of Royal Air Forces made by Cecil Beaton during the war :



The photographer gives of the Prince in this time the following description : " during the last years, his beauty sadly withered. He does not look like any more Queen Alexandra with the immense eyes of aquamarine and his pink lips. He has, at the moment, the tired eyes, damaged, as his father, the less pink and white complexion. He rather looks like an apple forgotten in a corner, quite wrinkled. But he is still beautiful, he has style and extremely attractive rest. The most beautiful of our Princes, and by far ".

Marina had the ability to make even everyday chores looked elegant. Maybe it was her posture & movements...

She had simply " the Class", which does not learn and makes all the difference with another women.

Some of them were in born, some of them must be learnt. She was much more elegant than her cousin Grand Duchess Marie Paulovna the younger (one set of parents were brother & sister).
