I think it's time to start a new part, the previous thread with 34 pages already...

Olga here in a simple black dress combined with a classic pearl necklace, probably sitting in one of the salons of her palace in Belgrade :

Olga was elegant & glamorous as usual. I wonder if the other lady was her lady in waiting ?

It is a friend of Princess Olga, Mrs. Ralli.

Watching TV I stumbled on an interview given by Princess Elizabeth were she made available some parts of Princess Olga's diary in which she wrote about a private dinner in Buckingham palace and how the King George V,Queen Mary and her parents wanted a marriage between her and Prince of Wales(Edward VIII)...after dinner she attended a ball which she described in her diary as very boring,knowing virtually nobody and how she danced only 2 times and that was with Prince Paul who was the only spotlight for her that night...She wrote day after:"He promised to call at 14-30...now is 15-20.Maybe he completely forgot about me."

He called later and invited her to the cinema.Soon after that they became engaged-one Thursday as she wrote and married in 1923.They spent 5 weeks of their honeymoon in Italy on the estate of Princess Demidov,Prince Paul's aunt..."My happiness is growing every moment,every second and the time with him seems like passing away so quickly..."

Princess Elizabeth also showed a handkerchief of Grand Duchess Olga,daughter of Nicholas with her initials which was found in Yekaterinburg after they died...

After that interview they showed footage of a documentary about Princess Olga in Home for elderly people where she spent her last days...She is always addressed as HRH the manager of that home stated that few days earlier Prince Charles paid a private visit to Princess Olga there where they spent 40 minutes talking...

Here are some pictures and screenshots of old Princess Olga:







In the last picture one could see THAT facial expression so much connected with her sister Marina and her niece Princess Alexandra...
