AUGUST WILHELM (Prince, 1887-1949, 4th son of Kaiser Wilhelm II, married his cousin Princess Alexandra Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein)

Charming Cabinet Photograph signed and dated showing him as a young man, three quarters length wearing a three piece suit with a high buttoned waistcoat, resting an elbow on a window sill, 6½” x 4¼”, no place,

Given to Ethel Howard, governess, 1895-1898, to the Kaiser's sons.
Miss Howard was greatly loved by the Empress, her ladies and the boys, but despite her enjoyment of the work the constant strain of royal protocol, extra duty and no holidays took its toll and she left after two and a half years in their service. The Empress, her ladies and the boys kept in touch for several years. See Miss Howard's 'Potsdam Princes' (London and New York, 1916).
