In the first photo Royal Netherlands posted, it looks like she would have some difficulty getting to that desk by having to squeeze between a table and a chair. And especially in her long skirt!

Hi Royal Netherlands,

Thank you for so generously posting all those pictures for us in the past few weeks.  Marvellous!!!

Last August, when touring through Peterhof with a cruise group and going through all the gold and statuary there, the woman in front of me turned around and said, "Who cleans all this!!??"....
But, Peterhof wasn't nearly as cluttered as Victoria's and Maud's rooms.  Pity the poor maid!  One wonders if the servants rejoiced at getting a job in the Royal Household, only to bemoan all that dusting...  Be careful what you wish for!!!

40's?  These photos look like they were taken in about the 1890's to me.

I don't think so.

The pictures of Princessess Victoria and Maud are circa 1890. The photographs of the interior of Fort Belvedere are from the 1950's.
