Royal widows to spend Christmas together

December 18, 1922

Queen Alexandra, who is the widow of Edward VII, has invited her sister, Marie, and her sister-in-law, Louise, to join her for Christmas at Sandringham.

Marie Feodorovna, the former Princess Dagmar of Denmark, is the widow of Emperor Alexander III. Queen Louise is the widow of Frederik VIII of Denmark, who was Alexandra and Marie's brother.

Nice to see that the relationship between Queen Louise and her sisters-in-law was not as bad as can be believed from for example Bramsen's book about the House of Glücksborg. Or maybe they came closer when they were older?
