Alexander Duff, Duke of Fife and Princess Royal Louise's father was shipwrecked off of Morocco and then died from pleurisy, making the oldest of his three daughters the Duchess of Fife by birth because he had no sons.
From Miss Mertens' photostream on flickr.
Alexandra's dress has a blouson upper bodice flanked by vest-like over-bodice panels in this photo that also shows she liked short wavy hair. Her coiffure is essentially what she wore at her wedding (the next image).
