HRH The Princess Of Wales Silk Print measures 17 x 11 inches
The magazine is called the Gentlewoman Christmas Issue
I am thinking she is Alexandra but need some help on her
she is printed on silk .
Alexandra of Denmark (Alexandra Caroline Marie Charlotte Louise Julia; 1 December 1844 – 20 November 1925) was the wife and queen-empress consort of King Edward VII of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, Emperor of India.

Her family had been relatively obscure until her father, Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, was chosen with the consent of the great powers to succeed his distant cousin, Frederick VII, to the Danish throne. At the age of sixteen, she was chosen as the future wife of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, the heir apparent of Queen Victoria. They married eighteen months later in 1863, the same year her father became Christian IX of Denmark and her brother, George, was appointed King of Greece. She was Princess of Wales from 1863 to 1901, the longest anyone has ever held that title, and became generally popular; her style of dress and bearing were copied by fashion-conscious women. Although largely excluded from wielding any political power, she unsuccessfully attempted to sway the opinion of British ministers and her husband's family to favour Greek and Danish interests. Her public duties were restricted to uncontroversial involvement in charitable work.

On the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, Albert Edward became king-emperor as Edward VII, with Alexandra as queen-empress consort. From Edward's death in 1910 until her own death, she was the queen mother, being a dowager queen and the mother of the reigning monarch, George V, though she was more generally styled Her Majesty Queen Alexandra. She greatly distrusted her nephew, German Emperor Wilhelm II, and supported her son during World War I, in which Britain and its allies fought Germany

    The Princess of Wales that preceded Princess Di was, Mary of Teck, according to wikipedia.

    I have seen the exact same image before as one of my great friends in life, Hazel, who I worked with collected royal memorabilia. It's a portrait of Princess Alexandra, the daughter-in-law of Queen Victoria and wife of Edward VII.

    Thank you Phil and David !!!!! I do believe she is Alexandra too Phil :-) She looks like a silk print they used to put in cigarette packs years ago or tobacco . But large size . A bit of water damage and no idea of age . I always thought of HRH Princess of Wales as being just Di who knew there were others not me :-)

    Phil I did not think she was given that title nor is she a HRH she is The Dutchess of Cornwell I believe . The Queen did not let her have the Title HRH of anything . I could be wrong but it is what I remember when they announced her title . "Dutchess and Prince of cheating "would be better name :-(

    Oh Mani, you are right, if not for the cheating:

    "The second wife of the present Prince of Wales, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, is the Princess of Wales by right, but does not use the title, out of respect for her husband's first wife, the late Diana, Princess of Wales."

    kind of too late for the respect though !~
