Was she by any chance a niece of grand duke Alexander Mikhailovich, since her mother was grand duchess Anastasia mikhailovna a sister -in-law? Of grand duchess Xenia alexandrovna,sister of czar Nicholas II.

On April 26, 1898, Princess Alexandrine married Prince Christian of Denmark in Cannes, France. Did Alexandrine's maternal grandfather, the Grand Duke Michael Nikolaevich of Russia, attend her wedding?
Queen Alexandrine was known for her needlework, which she sold for charitable purposes.
Queen Alexandrine founded Dronningens Centralkomite af 1914 (The Queen's Central Committee of 1914) to the support of poor families.

Yes. Sandro was Alexandrine's maternal uncle - thereby making Xenia her aunt by marriage.
