Taken the year Alexandra became queen, this portrait is testament to her enduring elegance. She popularised high necklines and chokers, which she wore to hide a scar on her neck. A fellow guest at a party attended by Alexandra commented that 'as usual, the Princess was the most beautiful and graceful woman in the place'.
