Alexandra of Denmark

Queen consort to Britain's King Edward VII. I have always though that she had the potential to be a great beauty, but she rarely looks happy.

1870 King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, George V, Victoria, Louise, Albert Victor
(I have also always thought that 1860s fashion looked much better on her than 1880s and 90s. Sure, she has a GORGEOUS figure, but I think it made her look less human)

1867 Princess Alexandra with her daughter, Princess Louise
(This is my absolute FAVORITE picture of her)

1879 with five of her six children

1893 Queen Alexandra with Queen Louise and the Duchess of Fife

1898 with Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna of Russia (her sister)

See, some people in that family like cats.
