No you are right...I just compared the photos again...The one in question was a blonde...my mistake.  :o

Probably you looked only at the faces, I compared the picture in whole  - faces and time period of the dresses and hair-styles.

In 1897-1898 as here's



In 1897-1898 both Elsa and Olga married, they looked like young women but not like the teenagers - Beatrice and her friend.

So I don't believe that's Elsa with Beatrice there.


They are GD Alexandra Iosifovna,  GD Olga Konstanovna, GD Vera Konstantinovna... and who are the other two?

No, Olga Konstaninovna is not in that picture. The two younger women are Vera K's twin daughters Elsa & Olga, and Elsa's husband Prince Albrecht of Schaumburg-Lippe.

amazing picture Grandduchessella! Those pictures of Missy, Ducky, and Sandra are new to me!

It's a shame there arent more pictures of baby bee around at that age.

I don't think she was born at that time.

You're welcome. I confess, I would love to see more from that sitting as it was new to me as well. But I'll take what I can get.  :)

Eric, I think XJaseyRaeX means she would like to see photos of Beatrice from that age (ie young child) rather than from that period.

Well. There are some at the marriages of Missy & Ducky in the ILN special editions.

Yeah, i meant that i have seen many pictures of Marie and Ducky when they were kids (like around 3-7 years of age) as well as quite a few of Sandra as well...i have only seen a couple of baby bee though as a kid. I always like seeing the childhood pictures the most. Im always fascinated by the adorable little outfits!  ;D

A lot in books on Missy and family of QV. The books by Charlotte Zeepvat are wonderfully illustrated by childhood photos. Check them up.

I have. i own most of them, but like i said baby bee's pictures are usually a wonderful find for me.
I guess it's kind of like how parents are, you know when a couple have their first child, they take tons of pictures of them throughout their development, and the second child...the third not to so much and by the last there arent many at all.  maybe thats the case..who knows.

That itself is an accomplishment if you own everything Charlotte Zeepvat had in her books. It is a big collection. I guess you will have to try for the Royal Archievs in Windor.

I don't think that's what she said. She seemed to indicate she owned most of the photos of Beatrice in the books. I own postcards/photos/magazines illustrations of a good half or so of what was in Queen Victoria's Family, obviously the more familiar ones and not the wonderful private ones she published. Aren't you are in a similar way since you publish photo books and Robert Golden indicates that his books contain photos consisting mostly of his own collection. I don't think that it's impossible for her to have done so as well. Her books haven't had that many childhood photos of Beatrice, nor her sisters for that matter, as she was covering so much ground.

I think Charlotte has quite a few photos on the Edinbrugh girls. There is not a lot of them available other than those from books on Missy.

No, what you asked me Eric was that i should look at Charlotte Zeepvat's books, and i said that i owned most of them as in her published books.
You misunderstood what i had said.
