Mann, Thomas Mann!
Ernst in tights, fur and feather - and in that pose! Gaydar blinking pink! Looks like something Pater Schimmelpreester a little further west in Hesse (in Bingen) could have come up with, as per Felix Krull.
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

She looks very pretty on this photo.
And as her contemporaries have said, it's true that she obviously loved flowers ! I think there're about seven flower pots around her.

Looks like the outfit she wore prior to Nicholas addressing the Duma for the first time in April, 1906.

I love the picture Ally posted of Alexandra at Evpatoria in 1916.  It's instantly become one of my favorites.

Possibly. Or not. Prince Louis (Ludwig) of Hesse might be the son , born 1908, of  Duke Ernst Ludwig and his second wife Eleonore.In the photo he could be of an age of about five in, say, 1913. This would not be the future Lord Louis.

The boy Louis Mountbatten (then Battenberg)was born in June, 1900, the son of Prince Louis Battenberg and  Princess Victoria of Hesse, Alexandra's sister. The age of the boy would be about right for him (early 1900s), but I don't think he'd be called Prince Louis of Hesse, but rather Prince Louis Battenberg, from the father's title.Also, I don't think the IF with Alexandra frequented Livadia much before the New Palace
 was built around 1910 or so, which makes the age of the boy Prince wrong.Also, in the years after the Russo-Japanese  war and the violence and social unrest following it , the IF didn't travel much , including to Livadia, so this photo is likely post-1910, too late for this boy to be the future Viceroy of India.


I lean towards the boy being Ernie and Eleonore's son (Louis) of Hesse, not the future Viceroy of India.
