  1. She was the daughter of the then Princess Royal, Princess Louise. She succeeded her father as Duchess of Fife in her own right, but unfortunately she and Prince Arthur had no children during their marriage.
    The outfits shown were very evocative of WW1 styles.

  2. Elegant couple! Alexandra’s Wikipedia listing is really interesting. She had a serious career in nursing, unusual for any women of her generation, but especially for a great-grandchild of Queen Victoria.
