What happened to Victoria's offer if it did occur? If she asked George V about taking the girls in then it wouldn't have caused as many problems then offering to take in the whole family. I'm sure Victoria knew that they wouldn't let Nicholas, Alexandra and even Alexei into England or even out of Russia because of how many people didn't like them/Alexei's status as heir but Britain, and probably the people, seemed to have really liked OTMA if they kept publishing anecdotes and pictures of them in their newspapers. They stopped to allow other British Princesses a chance, not because the people got didn't like them or even got sick of them so why couldn't the Government discuss Victoria's offer? They could have realised OTMA would do no harm and ask for safe passage for them to England. Of course they wouldn't have gone but who says the Provisional Government would give them a choice? They could have allowed Olga to maybe stay as she was old enough to make her own decisions, possibly even Tatiana, but nothing would have stopped them, not even Nicholas and Alexandra, from forcing Maria and Anastasia to go to England to live with Victoria.
