She was a very good shot. I've seen photos like this of her, Archduchess Auguste, the Countess of Paris and others actually out shooting. Alexandra sometimes accompanied Nicholas ona hunt but I don't know if I ever have seen a photo of her shooting. Same with Marie Feodorovna.

Can imagine her with rife at hand fighting the revolutionaries had she been 30 years younger. She had a more aggressive streak than Minny or Alicky.

In the upper photo, Kirill is wearing a black armband, so someone must have recently died - could it be his father or perhaps Alexei Alexandrovich?

The year is 1911-1913 , so unlikely father or uncle.

I'm inclined to think 1911 onwards, as Dimitri looks to be wearing officer's shoulder boards, but the mourning is interesting. Did any member of Marie Pavlovna's family die in that period?

Perhaps Kirill is wearing one for an army friend from his regiment? Do they wear them for those occasions as well?

Possibly for Peter Stolypin, though I doubt it.

Maria Pavlovna and her children at the wedding of her niece Alexandrine (daughter of GD Anastasia Mikhailovna) to Crown Prince Christian of Denmark in Cannes, 1898.  



Nice mix of Russian, German and Danish royals. Anybody have a better quality version?

On the painting in colour showing Grand Duchess Vladimir somehow relaxing in a drawing room, it is interesting to notice that a brindle French Bulldog, wearing its typical badger collar, is painted just next to the lovely bunch of flowers on the left hand  and low corner of the painting. That painting sold at the Paris russian aution sale last spring and is at the moment displayed at the exhibition about the Vladimirs (especially Kiril and Victoria Melita) in Saint-Briac France. Most of the times, Miechen is represented with a pied (black and white) French Bulldog, unusual to see her with a brindle (blackish with more or less fawn hair and sometimes a white patch under the neck) French Bulldog !
