I mean how since it was a 3 way, and he got all those images in his head of people in all different positions, I think he was kind of confused and had nobody to talk to about it.

Since he had trouble 'distiguishing between the sexes' maybe he just decided he was a bit of both, and he would have a bit of both and be bi  ;)

I would love to have a picture of them together too! I've looked but have never found one. If any exist I hope someone will link us up!

I have also  read there are wax figures of Felix and Dmitri (not the Moika ones!) in their old private rooms at a club on the Nevsky Prospect in St. Petersburg where they played their guitars and entertained their interesting guests. It sounds like they had a wonderful tiime! From Lost Splendor:

During 1912 and 1913 I saw a great deal of the Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich... He spent all his free time with me; I saw him almost every day and we took long walks and rides together.

Dmitri was extremely attractive: tall, elegant, well-bred, with deep thoughtful eyes, he recalled the portraits of his ancestors. He was all impulses and contradictions; he was both romantic and mystical, and his mind was far from shallow. At the same time, he was very gay and always ready for the wildest escapades. His charm won the hearts of all, but the weakness of his character made him dangerously easy to influence. As I was a few years his senior, I had a certain prestige in his eyes. He was to a certain extent familiar with my "scandalous" life and considered me interesting and a trifle mysterious. He trusted me and valued my opinion, and be not only confided his inner-most thoughts to me but used to tell me about everything that was happening around him. I thus beard about many grave and even sad events that too place in the Alexander Palace....

Almost every night we took a car and drove to St. Petersburg to have a gay time at restaurants and night clubs and with the gypsies. We would invite artists and musicians to supper with us in a private room; the well-known ballerina Anna Pavlova was often our guest. These wonderful evenings slipped by like dreams and we never went home until dawn.

There were a few earlier posts about the attitudes to homosexuality & categorization etc in Imperial Russia, and this seems to be a relevant link:

Is it true that Ella "appoved" Felix and Dmitri's plan of murdering Rasputin?

I've read of at least one letter from Grand Duke Dmitri to Felix in exile on this board, and I feel like I've read of some other letters that passed between the two at various times, I cannot, however, seem to find them.  :( I think people have said they're on the Alexander Palace site, but I think I'm just not looking in the right places. If someone could please point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks,
Amanda

I've also heard that they did not keep in contact, but I've seen in other threads that there was at least one letter between the two, post-exile. Perhaps that information is incorrect, I'm not sure.

Felix and Dimitri certainly did have some contact in exile.Marie Pavlovna writes often of Felix and Irina in both books of her memoirs and even went on holiday with them to Corsica ..so there was a link there....

I think Felix was at Dmitri's 1926 wedding. I don't think they broke off for good until Felix's 1927 book on the murder of Rasputin was published and Dmitri felt he had been publically betrayed by Felix telling of his part in it (they had supposedly promised never to speak of that night in public, and Felix's endless bragging and broken promise of silence angered Dmitri.)

There was one very friendly letter written soon after the murder in the AP time machine under "letters of Felix and Zenaida Yussoupov". Keep scrolling, I think it's the very last one on the list.

Is there any documentary evidence that Felix and Dmitri were in a homosexual relationship together?
