Yes, that was one of my earliest purchases way back when you had to find out titles from Royalty or Majesty magazine. LOL The stone ages before the internet! I still have it and always loved the royal photos in it--just wished there were more. I imagine it would be easier for people to get now.

Glad we were both able to tip you onto something good Eddie.  :) :)

Some of my fave pictures were the one posted of Sophie/Mossy, a dual image of Victoria Wales and little Alice Albany with a parasol. There's also a huge smiley one of Alix Hesse as a chubby toddler and several others that I've never seen outside this book. Enjoy!

Frances Dimond is now working on a bio of Queen Alexandra. I am sure it would be nicely illustrated. She told me that she is slowing working on it.

Any idea on the Sophie & Mossy portrait by Anton Von Werner ? I know he painted the christening of Willy & Dona's first child. Love to know if the Sophie/Mossy painting survived the war.

You are absolutely correct. Is this from the NPG ?

NPG is a treasure trove...In 2008 I found a glass negative of Moretta & Ena in the glossary and asked for a print when I was in London. They made one for me. I think they now have it in their regular collection. I think there maybe more waiting to be discovered...

No doubt. Many of the subjects have photo lines marked as 'not yet online'. They've increased their online presence hugely in the last few years though. Any of their prints can be ordered at various cost--obviously moreso if someone is going to use them in a book--but not a bad price to just have a collectible.

Yes...I am afraid to get overboard on that. The photo of Sophie on low decoletee is really attractive (sexy yet innocent). The head shot was used in the paperback edition of "Born to Rule".
