Tatiana being a Flirt
« on: March 17, 2006, 10:46:04 PM »
I burst out laughing when i saw this pic!! I didn't know what was going on and then i relized what was going on. Tataina is being a flirt! She has a very cute wink though. I can't imagine what Alexandra would think!!

I think the only 'flirting' the girls have done were just innocent flirting but there's no romantic thing with that. As for the picture, maybe Tatiana was just only playing or joking around and to tease Olga because I think the man beside them is Pavel Voronov(?) who happened to be Olga's crush. They were just very nice and friendly to everyone that maybe some people misunderstood. But in fairness, Tatiana really looks very cute on that shot that is rare on all her pictures! ;D

Yes, the man is Voronov. Looks like Tatiana is playing up for the camera -- "I know who Olga likes!" -- and Olga knows it.

I wouldn't see this photo as showing Tatiana flirting . She is just making a face, perhaps for the sun is bothering her, or to tease Olga. This photo is really innocent.

And yes...they are all laughing. They must have been making jokes to each other.

I didn't mean 'flirt' as in seroius flirting but in a joking around sort of way. It looks to me like they are just goofing around.

Paul Alexeevich Voronov broke Olga's heart.  She liked him so much and then he got engaged to Olga Kleinmichael.  Olga was very happy for the couple and only wished the best for them, but she was so sad too.  I wonder what Olga kleinmichael looked like, I doubt she was as beautiful as Olga Nicholaevna.

It is a funny picture, though. Olga's looking at her crush. Tatiana looks like she's winking. And Maria looks clueless about the whole situation.

A set of photos exists in which Tatiana and another officer pose as if they are in a flirtation. But in this photo I think it likely that Tatiana is winking at the camera in acknowledgment of her sister's affection for Paul Voronov. Marie looks like she is being squashed into the camera frame as something of a late or even incidental addition, and probably Anastasia is the one holding the camera.

I don't know that Paul Voronov actively broke Olga's heart; it seems to have been one of those situations in which a young woman fell in love with someone who was inappropriate for her in terms of social station. A translation of Olga's diary indicates that Voronov acknowledged he liked her, but given that he was an older and more worldly-wise person, as well as being diplomatic and trustworthy, I doubt he said anything to her that wasn't aboveboard. Perhaps Olga received positive "vibes" from him, but Voronov was not the sort of mercurial personality to ruin his career by deliberately hurting the feelings of the Tsar's oldest daughter, let alone behaving in what would then be described a "caddish" manner.  I have the feeling that Olga--being young, sensitive, and relatively unsophisticated--developed and nurtured strong feelings for Voronov which she then had to put aside upon his engagement to Olga Kleinmichael. I'll add that I've seen only one photo of Olga Kleinmichael, a formal portrait taken perhaps 10-15 years after the revolution, and she is quite an attractive woman with dark, expressive eyes; the camera captures her in a pensive, almost haunted, attitude.  

Grand Duchess Olga continued to keep in touch with Olga Kleinmichael and Paul Voronov after their wedding, sending birthday greetings and so forth and even visiting with them at their apartment. Olga Voronov last visited the family at Alexander Palace in early 1917, shortly before the children fell ill with the measles.

The one where they're acting like they're fighting in one photo, then posing for making up in the next?

The first photo was unknown for me, it's really funny, the expressions of Olga and Tatiana, they
were just playing! The others were unknown for me, I think that they were innocent too
