Lovely photo, Marengo. I'm having some trouble deciphering who is who--is the first little girl on the left Princess Mary, who later became the Countess of Harewood? And, which is Mary of Teck? The photo suggests it is the little girl on the far right.

AFAIK Princess Mary (future countess Harewood) is the girl on the left, Princess Mary of Teck (the future duchess of Beaufort) is the little girl on the right and the girl in the middle should be Helen of Waldeck-Pyrmont.

Once again, you have saved me from ignorance! Thank you, Marengo. I have always particularly enjoyed photos of historic weddings--they offer such a wonderful snapshot into the era. I love the flowered headdresses of the young girls and the Connaughts, but is Alice wearing a tiara? If so, which one?

Princess Alice is wearing the "Ears of Wheat" tiara - formerly in the possession of Princess Mary Adelaide her late Mother in law.
