maybe someone could tell me if the grand duchess and Dagmar lived close for sometime in russia (I believe they both lived in the country for some years, before the GD marriage) and how their relationship was? sorry if there is something somewhere, I couldn't find it ...

If you mean GDss Maria A. then her relationship with Empress Maria  was quite good, though it cannot be said they were best friends or chums.Polite and pleasant sisters-in-law.

I hope the coming publication of correspondence of Maria A. and her daughter Marie of Romania will unfold some new facts of Maria A.'s relationship with her numeruos relatives. In the Russian publication of that correspondence (only extracts actually of 1884-1920 eyars) I didn't find anything really interesting except some lines about GD Sergei and his wife.

Just came across an interesting image from a newspaper--apparently the Duke or Duchess had commissioned a deathbed sketch/portrait of Alfred Jr. The painting was reproduced in the newspaper soon after his passing. It was a grainy image but even still you could tell her looked very drawn and thin.

If I can--I have to copy the newspaper and then scan and crop the image, then post.

I believe so. Don't think she was fat though. She was known as "the plain" or "jealous" one in the family.

Not suggesting that she was fat, at this stage at any rate, just disproportionately narrow at the waist in this picture. Her sister's proportions are much less artificial.

Well...easily for her to get in and out of clothes...according to her racy reputation I guess.  ;)
