Trips to the UK aboard the Standart
« on: March 09, 2019, 03:07:55 PM »
Does anyone have any detailed info about these trips?

Especially how long the voyage would be from Russia, but also details of the trips themselves. :)

When they visited was it primarily a state occasion or a family one?

This thread has useful information: Chronology of the Travels of Nicholas II as Tsar and Tsarevich

The trips were primarily family occasions, but heavily publicized, with lots of press attention. They were seen as political, as it was assumed by the public that the related monarchs discussed politics, primarily foreign politics, even though they didn't do much of that, according to diaries and memoirs.

Берёзы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
