Grand Duchess Alexandra of Mecklenburg-Schwerin

HRH Princess Alexandra of Cumberland (Hanover) (1882-1963) was the second daiughter of the TRH Duke and Duchess of Cumberland  (Prince Ernst August of Hanover and Princess Thyra of Denmark).  She was named for her aunt, Alexandra, the Princess of Wales.

In 1904, she married  HRH Grand Duke Friedrich Franz IV of Mecklenburg-Schwerin.

In this postcard (a new addition to my collection)  Alexandra is wearing a Mecklenburger national dress.
