For those interested a small movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygZziSCiHYc

By the way. I've seen this video a couple of times. But behind the Tsar walks 3 women. Are these women not the Grand Duchess Maria P. sr. and Grand Duchess Anastasia M and Queen Olga of Greece?

(Behdind GD Ella, Xenia and Cyrill I also see GD Anastasia and behind GD Cyrill is that not Andrew or Boris????)

Thanks for posting the link to the movie.

I am not quite sure about the three women but the woman who comes first into the picture looks like the tsar's aunt Maria Alexandrowna Duchess of Coburg.
The woman in the middle with the white umbrella I do not know.
The third one is Grandduchess Maria Pavlova Sr.

Does anybody know at which occasion that little movie was made?

Yes.... I think the women coming immediately after Nicky are from left to right

Marie Saxe Coburg & Gotha, Anastasia M of Mecklenburg Schwerin and Marie Pavlovna the elder! I may be completely wrong...!


What interesting footage!

Lord help me, if I hadn't known that was Kirill, I'd have sworn it was Hitler.....:-) !!

That was Cyril. No question about it. I am more interested in the music that went with the clip. Any info on that ?

It's by the Viennese composer Johann Strauss II (1825-1899) who was know even in his life-time as "the waltz king". He's the composer of the famous operetta "Die Fledermaus" and of such famous waltzes as "The Blue Danube", "Emporer Waltz", "Tales of the Vienna Woods", "Voices of Spring" and many others. He also wrote a lot of polkas and operettas.

The music that went with the clip is a part of the introduction of "Emporer Waltz".

I wondered why on earth they spoke English when addressing the Russian people around the world!!! It just doesn't make sense to me! My grand father and his siblings and parents were all white Russians and they all spoke Russian and French and English was at least their third language until they ended up settling in the UK, the Colonies and the States! Why did Kyril speak in English?  It was super to hear them speak, and Kyril had very little accent that I could hear! Unlike Queen Mary who I do not think looks like her voice, Ducky really does 'look' like her voice to me....very Lady Bracknell- ish to me...I think she had a very 'handbag' voice!

This fact also amused me..."Emperor and Empress of Russia" speaks to the Russian people in English with Oxford pronunciation (at least it sounds for me so)!! The reason might be they wanted the whole world would be listening )), not only Russian people.
BTW, Kirill's voice sounds funny.
