Dear Eddie, What a lovely picture.  Where did you got it? From which book? Truly an amazing find. I never see this picture before.

Oh you are very welcome Teddy. I never talk about my collection (unlike some members) as I find that vulgar, but I am so glad you like it.

Besides, I don't think it's that rare as I'm pretty sure I have seen similar pictures.

There is a fuller sitting with both Alexandra and Alix as well as Irene and Ernie I believe. I think both photos are posted in one of the Hesse threads. It was apparently taken during E&A's visit to Darmstadt around 1880-2 or so. I'm sure someone else can pin down the date. Both cards have come up on ebay several times over the years in cabinet and CDV form but, needless to say, unless you luck out they go for a lot.

Well personally I would never buy on ebay as I think there are too many con artists around!

It was taken in September 1882 when the Wales family visited Darmstadt on occasion of the 45th birthday of Grand Duke Ludwig.
Prince Leopold was there too as was Princess Helena with her family.
You certainly know the large group photograph taken by Backofen.

About the 1871 ball and the humming bird fan, the royal collection site says:

"The Princess of Wales was photographed holding this fan in 1871, when dressed for the Waverley Ball held at Willis’s Rooms in King Street, St James’s (London), to commemorate the centenary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott and to raise funds for the completion of the Scott Memorial in Edinburgh. The guests at the ball dressed as different characters in Scott’s novels. The Princess of Wales was dressed as Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Prince of Wales as the Lord of the Isles. A number of the other guests (including Mrs Charles Forbes and the Countess of Shrewsbury) were also photographed holding these somewhat incongruous feather fans."

Gosh... i think that the kilt suited him better in his youngest days! (Cortesy Musee Mc Cord)



Ps: a question... this way to wear this "hat" (i dont know the real name of it) is normal?
