No, I don't think that's Pavel. The guy looks more younger than Pavel was at that moment, also GD had been in exile then.

I think this might have been part of her engagement series to either Max Baden or Nicholas. I seem to recall her in a similar dress for one of the photos.

I'm sure I got this from somewhere on the Forum so my apologies for not remembering the original poster:

Yes,the portrait is still owned by her grandson and it is the same portrait that GDElla posted although from different newspaper articles about the Paris home of Prince Alexander of Serbia and his wife Princess Barbara von und zu Liechtenstein.That is why the colours do not look the same in those two portraits!
