No, that's true, but they did share a bed all their married life, so the possibility is there. It was a very strange marriage in many ways, with Serge as very much a control freak over his wife and household anyway. Warwick at least doesn't spend an awful lot of his book speculating on the sexual aspect of the couple's relationship, if there was one of course.

Thank you

(I'm not sure that they had an intimate married life! But I don't suppose anyone could really know if they had or not, other than the two of them and maybe their closest servants.)
Thank you.

Princess Victoria of Battenberg visited Grand Duchess Elizabeth inn 1908 when the foundation stone was laid for the church at Ella's convent. Victoria visited Elizabeth in 1909 when the site had blossomed to include a hospital, a dispensary, a home for orphan girls, and a separate house for disabled veterans.
