  1. I am surprised not to see, among the Royal guests… Queen Frederica’s mother… Viktoria-Luise, the daughter of Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. She was the Duchess of Brunswick-Luneburg.

  2. I always thought Crown Price Constantine looked so handsome leaning against the column in the second to last photo. I imagine many ladies waited hours his attention.
