The first picture is one of my favourites!I would love to see a picture of Albert & Elisabeth's wedding, if the pictures exist!
I know there is one of Elisabeth as a bride-- sadly I've never been able to find one of Albert and Elisabeth together at their wedding. This engagement picture (of which there are many versions) seems to be the closest I can get.
Yes, I saw that one of her as a bride. I love their engagement pictures, they look so much in love.
These are so lovely - thank you for posting them. I especially like the one with the violins: such a happy domestic scene and the lovely part about it is that so many similar Victorian-style photos were covers for a very unhappy domestic life but in this case the camera tells a true story. King Albert was so handsome and his integrity shows in his features. Thanks!
You're welcome! Yes, the King had a very beautiful, noble head.
He was quite handsome. I like the one with the violins as well. The sheets of music are on the floor.
