I have to say that is the first picture I've seen of Alexandra where her hat seems to be overwhelming her !

It's part of a larger sitting, the other people have been photoshopped out. I forget who all was there but Edward VII was sitting in the chair next to her.

Was Queen Alexandra named after her aunt Grand Dss Alexandra of Russia who had married her mothers brother Fredrick Landgrave of Hesse-Kessel?

She was actually named for the Grand Duchess's mother, the Empress Alexandra (princess Charlotte of Prussia), who was one of her godmothers

And my favourite - as Mary Stuart


Alexandra is dressed as Mary Stuart at a fancy-dress ball given in 1871 in London. She holds this fan in her hand, presumably a gift from the Brzailian Emperor:

This is one of those 'rub out everyone from the background' shots. The occasion was the marriage of Princess Margaret of Connaught to Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden in 1905.

yeah, im pretty sure that is from the National Portrait Gallery and it is miss-id'd on their website.

It is a rather common image though.

All four...

Ok...we all know that Alix was a beauty, but the "artist" who made this portrait thought different...



This has to be one of the worst portraits of Alix i ve ever seen....
