Just your typical mother and daughter pose

Marlene A. Eilers Koenig collection

Typical if you are Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna of Russia posing with your first child, Princess Marie of Russia, by your second husband, Grand Duke Kirill, who also happens to be your first cousin.

The Grand Duchess was born Princess Victoria Melita of Edinburgh, Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria.

Ducky's jewels are staggering in this photo. Was she reduced to selling them after the revolution?
