Thank you Grandduchessella for the wonderful Teck family photos, but I was looking for photos of Adolphus and Margaret Marquess and Marchioness of Cambridge as a married couple.  I remember seeing one in some thread taken when they were in their later years.  Sorry about
misplacing the thread.

Sorry, Michael--I read it too quickly and thought you also wanted photos of Dolly as a young man rather than that you'd seen those. I'm blaming it on the fact I gave blood today and passed out.  :-[ I guess I'm still lightheaded.  :-X

My photobucket account keeps freezing and shutting down so I'll add more tomorrow but here are some of the images I have:

Margaret wearing the Duchess of Teck's Rose & Crescent Tiara as well as her circular tiara as a necklace



Dolly when he accompanied George & Mary on the Ophir (or to the Durbar, I forget which)

She also had some nice jewels which caused a few problems for Queen Mary later on.  :)

that was also mentioned (in a subtle way) in the ''lost prince''. does anyone know some more about this?

thanks to all of you for this very interesting topic!

Queen Mary was an eager collector of objects and pictures with a royal connection.[48] She paid above-market estimates when purchasing jewels from the estate of Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna[49] and paid almost three times the estimate when buying the family's Cambridge Emeralds from Lady Kilmorey, mistress of her late brother Prince Francis.[50]

maybe this has something to do with it?

Queen Mary had this portrait in one of her rooms at York Cottage. You can see it in the background of some photos.
