His personal belongings connected to the Imperial Family were put on the auction block in 2010/11. Over 2,000 items of letters, postcards, photographs, drawings and other things were included.

Anybody know what happened to them and have any of them been published or put online?

I'm particularly interested in the letters and photographs.

I have seen in the last year, for sale online, many letters written by GD Olga in the years '30. Curious because it tells his daily life and the events of his family.
