Rest in Peace. It's a pity she never got to see her daughters get married, or have children.  :(

Had she lived, Alicky would not have turned out as she was. The influences of Margaret Jackson would have been checked by Alice's example.

Princess Alice looked very serious in the pictures. Her son Ernie said actually Alice loves to laugh and have great sense of humor...

I think Alicky too has a sense of humour (that was before her marriage into Russia).

Von Angeli arrived in the spring of 1878 to work on the painting. He took a good number of photographs. Most of the work was completed before the Grand Duchess died that year. Alice wrote several letters to Queen Victoria detailing the sitting and why they picked the chilren they died--Victoria being 'too big' for instance though being the eldest she should have been in, she would have been 'too preponderant. Also that von Angeli was quite 'quite lost in admiration of Aliky and May'.
