Has anyone read a book by Victor Alexandrov, "The end of the Romanovs"?

Thank you very much for your kind answer, Janet! It is of course most unlikely that it may happen, but I can't help wondering, what if Charles becomes an Orthodox?  :D

Thanks, Bob -but my "theological" question remains... As far as I know (may be I am wrong), the Abbey is a religious site belonging to the Church of England -so I guess the mentioned statue has no religious meaning attached, at least for the Church of England? I don't want to sound disrespectful, but in such a case, would it be possible, for instance, to place there a statue of the Queen Mother or Lady Di as well?

I found rather interesting the comments about Philip's going back to Orthodoxy... I know the British Law forbids royals to become Roman Catholics or marry them -but what about Orthodoxy? May be this is not the forum to ask about it, but what if a British royal becomes Orthodox or marries an Orthodox person, like the Hesse sisters did? Would he/she be excluded as well from the line of succession? Were the Hesse sisters (and Alexandra's children)  still in the British line of succession in 1917, when Alexandra and her children were denied entrance in the U. K.?

Merci- do you know if there is some museum in there, or what they are now using the building for? Has anyone in this forum ever visited it?

A theological question, may be out of ignorance.... I believed England's church didn't approved "statues" of saints and the Orthodox church only accepted icons -so how come they have that statue in Westminster's abbey? Or was it just placed there the same way they could have placed Mother Theresa or Mahatma Gandhi -i. e., not as religious character but for what she did for people?

The Final Chapter / Tobolsk house

I know that the Ipatiev house was destroyed -but what about the Tobolsk house? Does it still exists? After all, "they" lived there a longer time than in Ekaterinburg.

Even if there were grounds to believe some tests concerning the "royals" may have been "contaminated", I have heard Anderson's DNA matches that of some people in the Schanzkowski family, isn't so?

Yes she was....! And far more convincing than Mrs. Tchaikowsky-Anderson ever was!

I would add "The last Tsar", by Larissa Yermilova. It has hundreds of beautiful pictures and a good deal of information about them.
