I would like to add that those photos were taken by Prince Alfred.

Please do credit the Royal Collection if you post their pictures. I don't think they would be happy about the spreading their images without crediting them.

Here's what the Royal Collection website says:

I don't think they want them spread at all since they've attempted to disable some downloading ability. It would probably be best to just post links to the relevant photos. That should avoid the problem, allow the photos to be shared (as they are wonderful) and, in the future, if the photos become disabled it would prevent the endless red x boxes we have on just about every post.

The best image I've seen of the memorial to Alice and her daughter Marie (May).  Download for full size.

Yes. I think they open the place where the tomb is and let people see it during the year.

Thank you so much, THERRY! :)

Eric, the portrait was painted in 1860; I don't recall what year Vicky was married.

Prince Albert's pet name for Alice was "Fatima" but it was not taken up in the next generation as "Vicky" or "Bertie"...
