The Alexander Palace WAS a hospital. They may well have used one of the wheelchairs still left there.

Мне кажется все таки Полевой госпиталь был в Старом Екатерининском дворце ... В Александровском была администрация военная ... ? Агатовые комнаты - кафе ресторан военный., ... В аптеке Касск гражданская администрация ...

I think all the same field hospital was in the old St. Catherine's Palace ... In the Alexander was the administration of the military ... ? Agate Rooms - Cafe restaurant military. ... The pharmacy Kassk Civil Administration ...

Могилы у Александровского дворца в основном не с госпиталя, а погибшие при первом штурме Ленинграда в 1941 году. А вокруг Екатерининского могилы уже с госпиталя.
Graves near the Alexander Palace mostly not from the hospital, but died in the first assault on Leningrad in 1941. And around the grave since Catherine Hospital.

Question ... This is the Alexander Palace and this stroller is the Empress?

Вопрос ... Это Александровский дворец и это коляска именно Государыни Императрицы ?

how can you mistake that for the Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna? unless she was a cross dresser. lol

Could it be that what geglov3 tried to ask was that is the wheelchair in the picture empress's (did it belong to her)? I might be completely wrong, though... my English isn't perfect either. :)

This wheelchair is possibly from 1850s-1880s or an even earlier period with its elaborate padding and style. It may have been used by Alexandra, wife of Nicholas I, when suffering heart problems in late 1850s before her death or by Marie A., wife of Alexander II, in 1870s. Although in 1920s-30s Catherine Palace interiors were cleared of personal items for displays, the AP retained interiors c1917. As following reigns maintained rooms in memory, for example NI‘s and AII‘s in Winter Palace, this wheelchair probably was in Zubov wing. It was not valuable to be sold by Gokhran. Most likely stored in basements of either palace, German soldiers found it using as a prop. Confirmation of actual owner/location would be in the inventories of 1918 either at RSHA or GARF.

The photo does not look like interior of AP - could it be Zubov wing? The rococo detail over the door may help identification.

Those kokoshniki (last in the series of links in the middle of your post) of the Grand Duchesses are so touching and sad; just the color I'd imagined them. I guess they could have belonged to any of OTMA. I'm so glad they were saved, though it's rather heartbreaking to look at them.
All your photos are great and many thanks for making them available.

Edubs, sorry, but I have lost track of who KR is.  My  fault, not yours. Kyril ? If so, he would not be an "Imperial Majesty, but an Imperial Highness." Majesty was just for the Emperor and his consort. Just being pedantoc again. I am really enjoyiny the story though. You are doing an excellent job as a sscreen wiriter, far better than I could do.
Life may not be the party we expected, but while we are here, might as well dance..

I had the same reaction when I saw them.

I am fascinated by the parade rooms of the palace, I would love to see the West wing of the palace restored.

There is that great watercolour of the Large, crimson, drawing room in the Alexander Palace, where was this room located in the palace?

This room became the palace chapel, located in #25 on the blueprint below. I've also included two recent photos of the room.
