Too bad we do not get to see the dress in the third photo. It looks very grand with the tassels.

Curious image of   Grand Duke Kyrill  to  Paris in 1910 ,"the baptism "  of his snowmobile, a modern model  for the times .

this is an  newspaper articles in French of 2 december 1910


---Le grand-duc Cyrille fait baptiser son traîneau automobile - Une cérémonie originale a eu lieu hier à nie de la Grande-Jatte, dans un établissement de construction aéronautique. Le grand-duc Cyrille de Russie a fait procéder au baptême d'un traîneau automobile qu'il s'est fait construire dans le but de faire du tourisme hivernal. Les popes de l'église russe de la rue Daru en habits sacerdotaux, ont procédé à la bénédiction de l'engin et un lunch a été ensuite offert aux invités. Le grand-duc Cyrille va faire transporter son traîneau en Suisse, où auront lieu les premiers essais. Le Petit Parisien –

The photos at 2.18 and following in this clip were taken in Wolfsgarten! In her bedroom...
This very room presently houses the Art Nouveau collection of the Hesse family.... the walls are still exactly the same...

Friends:

I am interested in finding out why GD Kirill traveled with the Inter-Allied delegations when they left Petrograd for Port Romanov in February 1917.  It appears he occupied a full carriage.  The matter was reported by Samuel Hoare (Fourth Seal) though I have never seen it reported elsewhere.  I suspect there must have been some very 'interesting' discussions between Milner, Revelstok and the Grand Duke on the long journey north concerning the approaching 'troubles' in Russia --perhaps the English simply said everything will proceed 'perfectly well, thank you'!

Perhaps it was a matter of protocol that a Grand Duke should accompany the delegations to Port Romanov (Murmansk). Kirill was the senior adult Grand Duke after Mikhail Alexandrovich.

Many supporters of Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna state that her grandfather Grand Duke Cyril was Nicholas's legal heir after the deaths of his immediate family.  However while I was reading in Grand Duchess Leonida's obituary that Cyril's claims were dismissed by the Supreme Monarchist Council and himself as well as his brothers were barred from the succession after he swore allegiance to the Provisional Government and the Bolsheviks, marched with his marines men wearing a red ribbon and hoisted a red flag over his palace.  Is there such evidence or documents of such if so where could one find it?  According to my chat with Historian Michael Y. Medvedev who wrote the paper the Cyrillist Claims,  he stated that the Emperor never recognized the marriage of his first cousins as legit and came up with a Resolution of 1907 stating he'd never accept it.  However this was never passed as a law or manifesto but left at memorandum stage. How effective would it be?  And if Nicholas barred Cyril from the succession in 1905 when he married against his wishes how could he have been reinducted to the imperial succession after the death of their Uncle Grand Duke Alexei?  There are so many contradictions here...plus its quite disgusting that his family is trying to claim something that may not even belong to them.  It seems to be an ongoing trait from generation after generation they need to give it up. Could some please explain this to me I'am confused.
