Lostfan, Alexis indeed got his Lancer (Uhlan) uniform when he was quite young. Sometimes, books provide measurments for the IF uniforms but unfortunately not for this one. The books I have say this uniform was made in 1908, so he would have been three or four years old when he got it.

As for the photos taken on the Standart, if you refer to the series of photos on pages 160-161 of ę The Romanovs : Love Power and Tragedy Ľ, itís not the same uniform, but a Garde Equipage (Navy Guards) junior officerís uniform (they had his grand-mother Maria Feodorovna as colonel-in-chief). It would have been surprising he would have worn a cavalry uniform on board the Standart : I have never seen him wearing anything else than a Navy uniform on board the yacht. I am amazed that he was allowed to play around with his miniature saber as he could have hurt himself. It was probably taken away from him as soon as the photo shoot was over! These photos were apparently taken in 1908. My guess is he got some uniforms for his 4th anniversary as I donít recall having seen him in uniform at a younger age.

Wishes that Tati and Alexei had lived to this level of adulthood....I really don't know...but do hemophiliacs do better if they could survive adolescence?

I guess there are a couple of reasons why Tatiana looks so, ahem, 'mature' in this photograph:
A: It's just a bad photo - everyone has them now and then.
B: They were living under very stressful conditions.
C: She'd just recovered from a particularly nasty bout of the measles,
or D: All the above.

(Now it's multichoice!)

I don't get it, I don't think that she looks mature in that picture!

I guess to some eyes she just looks older than 21 there.

"squeletical" ? Perhaps you meant "skeletal"?
