Princess Helene (?)

Posted to the Alexander Palace Time Machine Discussion Forum by Rani on 13 December 2008. This is one of those images that gets circulated with a name that may or may not be correct. Commenter Marie Sophie Habsburg advises this isn't Nene. While the person in this photo does not look like a Wittelsbach to Marie Sophie Habsburg or I, she wears a good example of an early crinoline era dress.

This person wears a textbook example of early crinoline day dress in a pose that also shows the vee waistline.
