My dear Vanya,

What a beautiful house. I think I would much rather live in Sandringham as opposed to Balmoral or even the Crown Properties such as Buckingham Palace or Windsor--no, I think I would like to live in Windsor too!

Thanks for posting these photographs. Where did you find them? I am also curious about who is featured in the portrait in the first photograph. It looks like a young Queen Mother.

Your very welcome, I'm glad you enjoy them!
I too would love to live in Sandringham, I think it's the most beautiful of all the Queen's homes, well windsor is very nice as well!!!
I don't know who that portrait is of...Good question!
Maybe the Duchess of Kent, Queen Victoria's mother???

My dear Vanya,

I am not sure but I don't think it would be the Duchess of Kent. Although Edward may have been fond of his grandmother, Victoria did not really have any connection to Sandringham unless she presented the portrait to Edward and Alexandra as a gift.

I thought it might be the Queen Mother because it resembles the cover photograph on the Shawcross biography. Her majesty is wearing a dark dress which is slightky off her shoulders and she is wearing the Indian tiara. In addition, it appears that the portrait contains some ermine robes which to me signifies that the subject has been crowned. But then upon closer examination, the style of the portrait appears to be too old to be the Queen Mother. Could it be a member of the Danish royal family and thus a relative of Queen Alexandra?

Hello Vassillisos!
I'ts a real mystery! I must confess I do not know, perhaps it is a member of the Danish Royal Family.
My guess that it was the Duchess of Kent was based on the portrait of the Prince Consort that is in the reflection of the mirror, and that these portraits were a gift from QV to Edward and Alexandra, father and grandmother.
But I really don't know who this mystery portrait is of!!!

I think it looks like it could be Alexandra's mother - Queen Louise of Denmark.

My dear Iluvbertie,

I think you are correct. I searched for portraits and photographs of Queen Louise and they look similar to the subject in the portrait. It makes sense doesn't it because Alexandra loved Sandringham and it was probably a gift from her parents or maybe Edward VII.

It would also fit with the Prince Consort in that it is Alexandra's mother and Bertie's father.

It is Queen Louise of Denmark. I was watching a DVD on Sandringham last night and they showed the portrait - it is one of a pair (the other of Alexandra's father, Christian IX is further to the left). I was so excited when I heard the narrator comment on the portraits as I remembered this thread.

Mystery dog illness on Queen's Sandringham Estate unlikely to be caused by plants - Telegraph

A mystery illness which may have killed at least eight dogs exercised on the Queen’s Sandringham estate is unlikely to have been caused by plants, scientists have said.

That is horrible and hopefully it wasn't foul play. Nevertheless, I hope once the remains are identified it will bring resolution to this person's family if there is any.
