The protrait of Nicky does look like and enlargement but notice the epaulets have the cipher of Alexander III Nicholas's Father placing the potrait at 1896 or less. My guess is the festivities are for Nicholas's coronation

Based on that painting, one can see what Nicholas saw in her.

The background looks like some of the parade pictures for the Tercentenary celebrations.


I think too...

The old woman and the children are peasants near Moghilev in Bielorussia...autumn 1916

But how would a hard-working peasant woman have gotten herself so close to the Imperial children.  I thought the secret service kept everybody away?  

Not in this case - but they surely stayed alert. See a cossack bodyguard at the left?

It's not always possible to capture ones features perfectly when drawing, and especially when painting. Whenever I see a painting or drawing of someone, I have to remind myself that they probably didn't look exactly like the work. For example, paintings of Queen Victoria in her early years don't really look like her when comparing to her pictures from the same years.
