Is that Swedish costume or just her eccentric way of dressing?

Considering how old she looks in the picture I would be surprised if it was a national costume unless it was Russian

I don't think it's specifically Swedish. To me, it looks like the kind of bohemian clothing that's inspired by elements of national costumes.

To me it looks either Russian / Ukrainian / Belorussian or a reconstruction of Iron Age dress. Doesn't look Swedish.
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

In finding Maria Ps book "Education of a Princess" in a library in a out of town trip it mentions her coming under Zeppelin attack in Insterberg in the early part of WWI. This is most likely the ZIV which is the only Zeppelin I know that bombed this town.

Is it possible to identify the others in the picture, including Gustav and Margaret of Connaught?

I am not familiar with the Swedish royals, but there are names inscribed on the bottom of the picture. Gustav is the man standing second from the left and Margaret sits in front of him with one of her children in her lap.

Wow,where did you find this portrait?

There were just black and white versions and some small sized pictures of it so far...
