Looking at the second photo I could understand why Missy sent Mignon to a fat farm. She was getting more heavy than her mother.

Would that have been taken before Mignons marriage ?

Does anyone know what happened to the dress Marie wore at Nicholas and Alexandra's coronation in 1896 ?

Missy's description of her dress:

"I had dresses of all colors. However, the garments with which I had most success were the gown and the long cloak given to me as a present by Queen Carmen Sylva. The poetess-queen, inspired by my young age, my fair hair and my blue eyes had decided to make me a real fairy tale princess. Therefore she ordered a royal gown and a cloak that were both embroidered with rose petals. Even the veil I was wearing beneath my diamond crown had rose petals on it. This dress which had been made in a Romanian tailor's shop fitted me very well and I was as proud as possible at how admired I was," the queen wrote."

Thank you Marie of Romania for your amazing photos & GDella for the info  :)  I have only one question: when we have a look at the group photo of the Edinburgh family , which of the two dresses is Missy wearing ?
