The cross is separate (big) with pearls hanging from it. The other pearl tiara has pearl spikes. It was the one Hannah Pakulah used for the cover of "the last romantic". I think she lost that one too together with the loop pearl tiara.

The family of Duke Alfred in April 1896 (days of Alexandra's wedding).

It's one of those composite photos. You can see individual images from other photo sessions where they just melded them into this one photo.

Well, then the Ernst & Sandra, Marie, Alfred and Bee all replicated their _exact_ same poses from other photos in this one at the same time. :)

Composite photos weren't unusual at the time--they took actual photos and melded them together. Then those photographic images were put out in postcards, photos, etc...I've quite a few of them--Alexander II and family, QV and family, etc....

Yes, that's a composite by no doubts. Sandra's pose is a first hint on that !

They don't look as though they are in the same picture! They are looking in different directions, to start wih.

If so the "composite" was done at the time of the marriage of Sandra. The clothes are all from that time.

Great conclusion. Considering the fact that I already wrote down above that image: "April 1896, days of Alexandra's wedding"
