Her Highness Princess Tatiana Constantinovna of Russia was married morganatically in her first marriage at Pavlovsk Palace in southern Saint Petersburg 24 August 1911. She married with the Russian noble Prince Constantine Alexandrovitch Bagration-Moukhransky. She continued to be a member of the Russian Imperial Family after this wedding. He was not a member of the Imperial Family of Russia. Children born out of this marriage were not in line of succession to the Imperial House of Russia. My question now is therefore why the marriage between His Imperial Highness Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovitch of Russia and Princess Leonida Bagration-Moukhransky would be equal in Lausanne 13 August 1948 so almost 37 years later? Would this not mean similarily that the child born out of this marriage Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna of Russia would not be in line of succession to the Imperial House of Russia? What makes Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna of Russia position legit?

It simply comes down to dynastic politics. The Bagration-Moukhranskys were not simple Russian nobles, but formerly reigning Georgian royalty. They were not considered equal in 1911, but Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich decided in 1948, as Imperial claimant, that his marriage to Princess Leonida was equal. Very autocratic.
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.
