Thyra, Duchess of Cumberland seated

Thyra aged gracefully and/or this photo has been skillfully touched up.

From Miss Merten's photostream on flickr.

Princess Thyra wears a day dress with a lace bertha and a skirt with buttons rising up from the hem of her skirt. Lapels protrude from beneath her bertha while her sleeves appear to emerge from a vest that is a few cm lower than her lapels. The sleeves of her dress are just a little more than elbow length with the lace sleeves of her chemisette emerging from them.
