Their World and Culture / Re: The Imperial Family and Their Music
« on: April 13, 2007, 01:42:27 PM »
Yes...I believe that rag-time music was accepted in Europe before it was in America...where it began. Ironic that ...The film,"Oh,What A Lovely War" has some great songs of the WWI period...I especially enjoy "The Moon Shines Bright On Charlie Chaplin",sung to the tune of "Redwing"...Tedders often has a jolly turn on the garden table to that piece... ::)

Yes...I'd also love to see the "Romanovi" film...It sounds very moving just from the brief description...I've always wanted the BBC or such to do a 12 part mini-series on the IF,taking the the time to tell their story in detail.

For children to be "allowed" to accompany their parents would seem a fine point. Few children of whatever age would likely vote to be seperated in a time of adversity.

The life of the IF might make an interesting musical...Any jolly idees how it might go?...

Woo-Yay and such...Tedders has finally found his highly valuable and fetching folded paper hat that we might return to the joys,sorrows,slings,arrows and other aspects of forum life. I hope you have all been good while we were away...Supah to be back again... ;D

I love that picture of the Yorks and Princess Marina.  

Marina was so CHIC and the Duchess of York was
so Not.

Is there a Marina site...?...She was the "Diana" of her day...great ickle hats with a big jewel on the side...there's even a song about those hats...Tedders has revived the look...when not in folded paper hat...

The Queen seems rather smaller than HM in the 1935 pic...where she seemed taller in 1911...

I like "The Camster's" hat.  Also, I like the suit.  I just do not like them together.  They do noy match.  The greens of the hat and suit are the wroung hues for each other.

Yes,Tedders...we enjoy that she doesn't really seem to care about the "fashiony" details...she'd likely be one of those ladies like Aunty Grace who wore riding boots and trews under her ball gown because she was hunting at dawn the next day...

With a description like that tdora, I can hardly wait!

In the meantime, here's another ruby tiara that just doesn't quite work.  Wasn't this a gift to Grand Duchess Marie (?) when she married one of QV's sons?




And while I'm at it, the otherwise lovely CP Victoria of Sweden wearing the, ahem, amazing 4 button tiara.  (How can she looks so happy while wearing that frightful thing? ???)



I've always felt sorry for CP Victoria...I wonder if she isn't dealing with some strange "guilt" thingy in the family...taking her brother's place in the succession,one perhaps she doesn't especially want,due to some PC notion of the Swedish parliament....

Yes,Tedders...I think we have all reached the state of beating the "ghost" of the dead horse... ::)

No,Tedders...we don't think that ChatNoir has painted self into a corner...no...never...
