I think she designed it, as her sister-in-law's mourning dress was white (like Queen Olga's).

Ah, I see. Thank you. I wasn't sure which one as none of her Greek sisters-in-law were widowed in Sophie's lifetime save Princess Marie (Grand Duchess George). I thought perhaps it was she you referenced.

Princess George & Princess Andrew weren't widowed at that point.

Yes, that's what I said. Only Marie was widowed in Sophie's lifetime. That's why I thought perhaps you were referring to her when comparing the widow's weeds. So Princess Nicholas wore white ala Queen Olga?

Lovely photos ! I wonder who the couple sitting on the corner during the wedding. They look like Coburgs or Orleans...

Thanks. The photo is quite rare...especially from that angle. Were her brother & sister at the wedding too ? I never saw a group photo of this event.
