    Hi Deborah, please excuse me. This is Queen Victoria with her granddaughter (daughter of V's youngest, Beatrice), Princess Victoria Eugenie, called "Ena." This girl also carried haemophilia like Empress Alexandra. Ena became a Roman Catholic and married the King of Spain (a real schmuck who didn't deserve such a lovely, kind jewel).
