Princess Alexandra carte de visite by Southwell Brothers

Posted on the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by royal_netherlands on 31 August 2006.

Princess Alexandra wears a spectacular cape or paletot over her crinoline, giving the whole affair a half-conical shape, in this carte de visite. Comparison to the 1863 photo of her with Edward and her brother Vilhelm suggest she wears the same dress.
