Alexander died in 1920 so it seems a "long" time to look sad in pictures, but wearing plain black clothes doesn't help you to look jolly.  And I don't question she felt her sons death the rest of her life, naturally.

Elizabeth with George, his parents King Constantine I and Queen Sophie and her sisters-inlaw Irene and Helen in 1922. Thinking about it Helen was twice her sister-inlaw because of her marriage with Helen's brother George and Helen's marriage to Elizabeth's brother Carol. Funny both the married women (Sophie and Elizabeth) look very devoted towards their husbands. Aldo Sophie looks a bit more devoted than Elizabeth... ;)

Wow, great picture ! Thank you very much, Royal Netherland for posted this touching family photo which is also my venerable Helen. Because it's always a great pleasure for me to discover new photos of her, especially those dating from those years (1921-1922) where I believe she was still happy.

The middle lady looked more like Ena than Missy.

Actually its not a photoarchive but a lot of scanned newspapers. Its very helpful when you need some information. Pictures are just a plus and sadly, mostly of them have awful "photocopy" quality.
