The Lady seated at Left is, I believe, Marie d'Orléans,wife of Prince Valdemar, while the girl to her right is Princess Alexandra of Greece standing beside her mother, Queen Olga of Greece and wife of Prince Vilhelm (known as King Géorgios I of Greece).

This 1883 Tuxen portrait captures the Glucksberg clan wearing European fashion just before the second bustle period erupts in 1884. The ladies are wearing bustles that are very discrete compared to what came a year later.
