I would think that good ole King Christian would have been right proud!
First of all, he seemed to be a good, kindly, family man...... and 2nd... he was with his three gorgeous daughters - each charming and beautiful in the their own way, yet so alike!!!!

I know this sounds kind of mean, but those bulging eyes both on her and Princess Maud, especially, are SCARY, to look at. Imagine having one of them coming to wake you up in the morning and you open your eyes and that is the first sight you see....those bulging eyes...

Card Game

Here's the pic of the card game. I thought I had sent it earlier, but apparently it didn't stick.

Ha! Though I must say, I have big bulging eyes and was always sensitive about it (being called bug eyes and fish eyes didn't help) until an old gentleman neighbor of my grandmother told me I had eyes like Queen Alexandra. It made me feel alot better.

But Queen Alexandra didn't have so-called "bug eyes" at all! She was renowned as a classic beauty.

The "bug eyes" some of the royal family inherited was from the Hanovarian line, i.e. Queen Victoria, then passed down to some of her children, in particular Bertie, husband of Alexandra.

Where are there any "bug eyed" pictures of Alexandra?

Unhappy edward VII

I want to know if somebody has photos of this great king. He was a great lover but, disagreeable, he was with his wife, the beautiful queen Alexandra, for duty. I think that he never in lov of her.

Most pictures of Edward VIII would be in the British forums. Alas, there is no thread dedicated to him but you can find some pictures in the threads devoted to his wife Queen Alexandra and his son and daughter-in-law King George and Queen Mary.

One person's "bug eyed" might be another's "beautiful large eyes", but I think there are a number of pics in 'The Queen's Jewels' where I think her eyes look strange. For example: 126, 108, 51, and 59, I'm not sure if it's the fact she looks about to burst into tears at any moment, or her eyes are slightly too far apart, but they are prominent and I'd call the look "bug eyed".

Not that I'm aware of.

Queen Louise of Denmark died in 1898 and her husband Christian IX died in 1906 never having remarried.

Supposedly when Queen Louise died, her husband said, "I don't know how I can live without her"

I agree with Ysbel. King Christian and Queen Louise were a notably happily married couple who remained faithful to each other until the end in everything I've read about them.

Well, she was the mother of Queen Maud of Norway, who was infamous for her tiny waistline. I mean, just look at Maud's waist in this picture!

So I guess Alexandra could have been petite too.

Then we shall have to disagree then, as I don't even see that Alexandra's eyes were particularly large.
Here is a photograph of Bertie and Alix. They really were the Charles and Diana of their day, as far as royalty goes. There is even a similarity of expressions here, in my opinion. I still regard Bertie as the one with the protuberant eyes but it's just my opinion.
