So the Grand Duke Michael was part of the Tercentenary. I read somewhere that he was banished from Russia until WWI.
He is escorting Olga in the famous 1913 procession  footage...Krill is escorting TN,  someone I don't recognize is with Marie ( possible Paul A)  and then Anastasia is escorted by Dimity P.

It was not procession in 1913  for sure - in that time Michael was not in Russia.

So the Grand Duke Michael was part of the Tercentenary. I read somewhere that he was banished from Russia until WWI.
Yes, of course he was. However, he was out from the homeland in 1910 and 1912, during affair with madame Brassova.
Not exactly. Michael was abroad since September 1912 to August 1914, when he came back to Russia with his wife and children, just before the outbreak of war.
He spent the entire two years abroad so he could not participate in the procession in 1913, it was just impossible.

So the procession in the picture posted by larri-otmaprivatealbums was in my opinion not in 1913 but  in 1912, not during the Tercentenary but during Centenary celebrations in Moscow - of the victory over Napoleon in the War of 1812.

Anastasia in 1913 during the Tercentenary:

What is amazing is to realize that from 1912 on, the family was ever more busy with extra royal duties... 1912 Centenary celebrations , then the 1913   Tercentenary celebrations , then the war years....by the time of the revolution they had done nearly 5 years of extra duties in an already busy schedule. Remarkable

I can't see the nurse well, but she really looks like Auntie Olga. Is she indeed? If so, we can date the photo 1916 - i'm quite sure i read in 25 chapters of my life that Olga A saw her nieces during war only in summer 1916
If she's not Olga A... well, i'm daydreaming, and i'm sorry ^^

Sunny, OA  must of meant the last time she saw the girls  because there are photos of her with them as they are breaking ice at AP...clearly not summer and she's in her nurse uniform . That last time must of been in the group of photos with Aunt Sunshine, Aunt X and Minnie. AN looked like she does in this photo( even a similar outfit) ....so I believe 1916 is correct for this photo. But she's with  a nurse from the Little Pair's  hospital at AP

Well, her favorite perfume was violets, (Coty) so I suppose that would be her favorite flower. As for colour, umm, blue or green? That is just a guess, however.

We do not know for sure, but in another thread (i do not recall the exact name) we guessed it could be red/pink because she often colored her clothes &hats in photos in red or pink.
KLook for the thread about colors: it's very interesting.

Letter from Tatiana Nikolaevna to Zinadia Tolstoy
June 23, 1917
Dearest ZS,
I am terribly ashamed that I still have not thanked you for your letter on the 29th of May and the lovely embroidered bags. I took the blueish one with multicoloured flowers, Olga- blue with yellow roses, Anastasia- pink, and Maria- all yellow. They are very useful and those always remind us of you.

(my addition)
Whenever Anastasia hand tinted photographs, she seemed to put herself in a red or pink colour, Maria was Green, and Olga was blue. Since maria's outfit was an extremely light colour, I'm guessing it was whatever her favorite colour was. I've always assumed purple or violet was Tatiana's favorite colour, just like her mother, but maybe a bit different.
Why I enjoy watching The Andy Griffith Show at 2am, I'll never know.
Why yes, I do enjoy comical stylings of Anastasia :]

I love that letter...of course TN made a list of who took what! lol!  I have heard they some times  favored their regiment's colours as well . Sunny, that's an interesting observation about AN's albums. I would be so great to know if she colored what the outfit were or just colours she  liked! I'm thinking it was a reflection of what  they wore...but can't know.

Thanks Talya! this is exactly what i meant but i did not have this letter in my pc and couldn't relocate it even if i'm sure it appears in another thread!

I've always thought Maria's is some shade of yellow. In hand tinted photos her clothes are sometimes greenish and sometimes yellowish, so since she chose the yellow bag, i've given her yellow, but this is IMHO. Moreover, Tatiana's clothes in hand tinted pictures have various colors (light blu, blu, green) and i gave her pale green. Well, this is IMHO, just because i wanted to use a different color for everyone of them in my chapter schedules for my novel! So i chose: O light blue, T pale green, M yellow and A pink (not red because it's difficult to write on a red background using Open Office, LOL).

Of course! *Slap forehead* Sorry, dumb moment there! I was thinking that because she was the tomboy of the sisters she would prefer more outdoorsy colours. That was so stereotypical of me that my RE teacher would be in tears! I remember the letter now.
