Thanks for posting. I know the second image can be found in the archives of Windsor and old ILNs.

Looking at the two photos I realize the three sisters didn't change too much through the years, although they had to go through very bad times...A pity Baby Bee was not there, in both of the pictures.

Considering Marie's thread is now on Part 3, I'm sure there aren't many that haven't been posted before. It's just a matter of how far back.  :)

Times have really changed. However Missy was not so painted like her cousin Charlotte of Meiningen or later her daughter Elisabetta.

I was actually admiring her makeup, I don't think it was ''too much'' not at all. Marie took extra time to look good always, even in her later years of life. And with her great vitality, her beautiful face  always looked lovely and kept the same youthful appearance (except maybe for the 1937-1938 years), in spite of years crowded with strenuous activity.
I believe she had a beautiful skin, unlined, firm, fresh, with lovely natural color. (This is how I imagine she was from her photographs & paintings and from other person's and her own descriptions of herself). A skin which spoke for itself of the wise care Marie had always given it. She kept her skin creams for constant use on her dressing table and she was quoted saying it gave her daily greater satisfaction.

Yes. Although she did not tip off her beauty tips in her books. Her adored cousin/aunt Ella also mixed her own face cream, so it might be something they exchanged during their visits to England & Coburg. She did not look at all dolled up until her illness. Even in b/w photos you could see her use of lipstick and rouge.

Indeed. It showed that she was a heavy smoker too...
