Family portrait

Empress Eugénie poses with business-suited husband and son in this photograph. Unlike the Tsars who were just about always portrayed in uniform, Napoleon III was occasionally portrayed in civilian dress. Her dress may the same as in this photo and the others of the group, but I see four tiers instead of five and the sleeves look wider.
