Could someone identify the Hessian princesses for me ,other than Alexandra, of course. They do look so remarkably alike. I'm fairly sure that's Ella on the left; but Irene and Victoria,I'm not so  sure.

Thanks, and it seems I shouldn't be so sure of my recognition of  Ella.

At the risk of straying off topic, how tall was Serge? I knew Ernie was not a large man by any means but in this photo he appears even a hair shorter than Nicholas, or right about 5'7".

I've always thought of Ernie as being about 5'8", give or take a half inch. In other words , about Nicholas' height, though I must say that in their appearances together, Nicholas looks like the slighter figure. Interestingly, Ernie even seems shorter than his sister Alix in mamy photos.

I think Serge was at least six feet tall, possibly more, like his brothers, but perhaps appearing taller because of his slender build. That is, tall and lean.
