I guess Alexandra could have left her share to Minnie and avoid the "complications".
The house does not seem so large or expensive that would affect Alexandra's heritage.
AFAIK, the house was bought by Maria F. and her sister Alix together.
Did Alix leave her share to Maria F. ?
I forgot to ask if Alix children inherit any share.
A quote from Coryne Hall and Senta Driver's splendid book "Hvidøre - A Royal Retreat":
"Alexandra's death was not only a bitter personal blow but it also brought complications. As Hvidøre was jointly owned by Alexandra and Dagmar the property would now have to be sold, half the proceeds going to the Queen's heirs. Luckily, it appears that George V and his sisters agreed to forego the sale so that Dagmar could go on living there."
