In that very uniform from the photo. Much note was made of the figure he cut in his white uniform with his silver breastplate glittering in the sunlight. Not to mention his height which was greater than most of his contemporaries there. A regular Lohengrin come to life. Always my favorite male royal.  :)

yes, and the British really did emotionally adopt him as a loved one if not one of their own. "unser fritz" had meaning in both nations.

it's truly one of history's great tragic lost opportunities that he (and Vicky) did not live to be at least the age of his father which would have taken him to the year 1922.

I guess that it wouldn't technically be a cabinet card since it's not a photograph.

the script is impossible for me to discern; anyone?

its a cabinet card. It wasnt necesary to have a photography to be one. There are also a lot of CDVS with illustrations.

Yup, i also thought it could be a cigarrete card but its a Cabinet card.


There was a Cabinet C of 4 Hohenzollern generation with Wilhelm I having Kronprinz Wilhelm in his arms. Since it was a popular format, you can also put Illustrations as C.C

Lovely image, KF. Werner seems to have been a favorite of the Crown Princess. Several works were also commissioned by QV of the German royals.

The previous photo can be found in the book (many years old now) that was done by Frances Dimond and contained works from the Royal Collection. The name was Crown and Camera. It had some really interesting photos for anyone who want to pick it up. It's not all royalty though--many were photos either taken by the royals or collected by them of landscapes or regular people.

Do You know that book ? It's an interesting book that I bought many years ago in London. Infact the photo I've posted comes from that book  :)
