Yes. Missy loved her grandson and lent a hand from time to time to help him, without overstepping the mark with his mother Mignon.

DEAREST MISSY

The letters of Marie Alexandrovna, Grand Duchess of Russia, Duchess of Edinburgh and of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and of her daughter, Marie, Crown Princess of Romania. The Duchess of Edinburgh was a diligent and constant letter-writer. She was also outspoken, humorous and a keen observer. Her letters to her daughter Marie, the future Queen of Romania, have been transcribed and edited by the Romanian historian Diana Mandache. With 40 illustrations. Hardback.


The book is now listed at the Majesty Magazine Shop --> http://shop.majestymagazine.com/shop.php?cat_id=65  :)

Has anybody else here been to Marie of Romania's summer palace at Balchik, now in Bulgaria? I went there for the first time last year and it's enchanting. It's not really a palace but a large white stone villa surrounded by other, smaller villas, set in the midst of woods and gardens, overlooking the Black Sea. It's a funny -- interesting, I mean, quirky -- mixture of the royal bourgeois style of the early 20th century and the Bohemian. Cozy but quirky.

The town of Balchik itself is now a very popular place for wealthy Russians to buy property and settle, consequently it has acquired a distinctly Russian feel, which I think is only too appropriate, since Marie was after all the daughter of Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia.

Missy wearing her crown and diamond chain (with the huge sapphire). The diamond chain was later inherited by Queen Anne who wore it at her wedding to King Michael of Romania in Athens.
