Here are pics from the visit of prince Boris of Bulgaria to his god father (Nicholas). The caption says that this is the opening ceremony of the Monument King Liberator in Kiev, Aug. 30 1911.

Boris was 17 then (born 30 January 1894). He looks a bit shorter than Nicholas there, but perhaps he was still growing. Is there anything in Nicholas's diary about Boris?

Mapuche - Thanks for posting that second photo, even though it is not of NII.   I needed a good laugh on this Monday morning and that did the trick for me.

I was watching ''Last of the Czars'' - 1 and happened to see the photo of Nicholas addressing the Duma (I guess). It's in 42.14 here:

Could someone please help me understand why they had his mantle on the throne like that? It just seems odd!

Well, in modern times, a monarch would usually only actually wear the royal mantle and crown, and bear the regalia, on the day of his coronation.

Here, the crown, mantle, scepter, and other regalia were purposely brought and ceremoniously displayed in order to bestow a formal, regal, official, and legal air to this very important occasion in the history of the Russian State. And to demonstrate that Nicholas II was acting in his role as monarch when he initiated the Duma form of government.

In Britain, the Queen opens Parliament wearing crown and mantle, but it is the Imperial State Crown, not St Edward's Crown, which is only used for coronations.

State opening of the Swedish Diet of the Realm at Stockholm Palace in 1974: Riksdagens högtidliga öppnande på Stockholms slott (Untill King Oscar II's death in 1907 the King wore both crown and mantle as in Britain and all the princes coronets. 1907-1974 the crown rested on a cushion and the mantle was draped over the silver throne. Since 1975 the ceremony takes place in the Diet without any regalia and the King wears a day suit.)

(As always, ceremony lags behind the actual development. The change from a medieval diet of estates to a bicameral diet took place in 1866 and the change to a unicameral diet took place in 1971.)
