I was wondering about the same thing!

Irina was very like her paternal grandmother, Olga Feodorovna

 Irina looked more like her after the revolution and through exile.

Wow I never seen that picture!

Read the book " Flight of the Romanovs"  few years back.  If I can remember.... it said that Maria Pavlovna had affairs with young guards and that her liaison included a Grand Duke.  I know that this could be rumors,  but the question is did she have affairs?

Good scene. I can definitely imagine how it plays out.  Good work edubs31.

Wow!  I never seen that one.

She knows that she is "The most photographed woman in the world"  why would she go out partially naked.  Prince William knew how much his mother suffered in the press, he should have known better and told her to put some clothes on.

Didn't Alexandra say that he (Dmitri) behaved like who ever he was with for the moment? That might be something to consider too. I wish I could remember where I read this. I know Felix admitted that he charmed people often. He writes afterward in "Lost Splendor"  that he knows saying so sounds vain.

I think that was from the book 'A lifelong passion"   Felix did mention have a strong influence on his (dmirti)character.  I also find it a little strange how he describes Dimitri, as almost like how he would describe himself.

I think it will always be harder to say with Dmitri until their is proof out of his own words.  I say so because who would have ever guessed KR's struggle? I wouldn't have even been inclined to think.


 I would never think of that Kr struggled since he was happily married and had 9 children.  Also the same can be be said about other Romanov men such as Nicholas Michailovich and Kyril who were rumored to had affairs with men, even though both seemed that they were strongly linked to women.

I don't like her much at all. I find her interesting certainly and I do realize that she played a necessary role in her entertaining of the court and high Russian society...but there is no doubt she was a woman with an agenda and two faced at that.

How about princess Irina yusupova she was very quite and was not in public until she got married, but even then she was still kind of shy.

Alexandra of Edinburgh? Widely seen as a whiner and drip, esp. by her own mother....her sister Bee was not hugely liked either, though Leopold M. DID like HER, apparently!

Why wasn't Baby Bea liked?

Great story. I'm excited about what's coming next.

 I don't know if anyone else  has notice  that G.D Dmitri addressed Natasha as "dearest Friend" in his letters to her, which he keeps stressing those words and of course we know of his romantic affections for her. but what I notice  is that he does  the same  with "dearest friend" in his letters to Felix yusupov.  It just gives a thought....
