M-T and Alexandra are very sweet with little Gabriel. Where were the pictures taken? I can't decide who Gabriel looks like but he sure is cute!

I really doubt we would get any photos of the funeral--she lived a quiet, private life.

Here is a picture of the GD Jean and his sisters. Princess Marie-Adélaïde, Countess Henckel von Donnersmarck, is the second from left. I rather like this picture; they all look so modest.

Unfortunately, who posted the pic to me, didn't post the original source.
