    It's a pity that the details don't say which Princess Beatrice it is. I initially viewed this on YouTube and it wasn't until my third contribution that I was able to be fairly confident as to who she is. It was clear to me that she couldn't be the best known Princess Beatrice at the time, i.e. the daughter of Queen Victoria, as she would have been too old. This is, I think, Princess Beatrice (1884 - 1966), daughter of Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, the second son of Queen Victoria. In 1909 she married the Infante Alfonso, Duke of Galliera, and he is to be seen to the left of the picture at the start, holding a top hat.
