Crown Princess Marie of Romania and her brother Alfred Prince of Edinburgh and Saxe-Coburg, in the gardens of Cotroceni Palace, Bucharest 1898 (Diana Mandache's weblog Royal History)

Alfred’s last visit to the Romanian Royal Court was remembered by his sister Marie of Romania in her memoir and letters. When she recollected those days Marie also quoted from Robert Herrick’s poems:

Gather the roses while ye may
Whilst old time is still a-flying
For the same roses that bloom today
Tomorrow will be dying
The photograph presented here is a rare image of their last meeting at the Romanian Royal Court in the autumn of 1898.
