I, too, think that they were somewhat "looked up to".  Seeing royalty concerned with the wounded soldiers and helping out and grieving over their losses would, you would think, raise their hopes and feel more secure with their sovereigns. ???

But seeing how in past royalty, sovereigns usually didn't physically help out the commoners, it made me wonder.  Especially princesses, considering the "etiquette" (but I don't know if that restricts them from "mingling with commoners"). :-/

I know that a lot of the Romanovs looked down upon Alix for being a nurse; ie Miechen, Ducky, etc.  Maria Feodorovna probably did too.  They of course all though tthat the more proper way to show support would be to run charities and be a decorative head of the Red Cross, etc.

Well...perhaps the Empress might have done more good to go to the hospitals....dressed beautifully...like the Imperial Person she was and who these young men must have reveared and thought they'd gone into battle for on some level...like Queen Mary....

I kind of figured that the other royalty looked down on the nurse work, since royalty, as you said, is supposed to help, but not exactly physically.  

What did the commoners think?

How about this cute little thing:



It's a child's ceremonial costume that belonged to Alexei. (From the catalog of the exhibition, NICHOLAS & ALEXANDRA)

Anyone know if the dresses from the 1906 series were preserved by the IF?

Definitely yes, since they were worn regularly as well--probably for tea!  I bet they're probably safe somewhere in some back room of the Hermitage...

Are there any pics of evening dresses belonging to Tatiana and Olga that survived over the years?
I would love to see them!

grandduchess_42, that was taken in 1910; that is Olga in court dress.  Annie was wondering about if the gowns from the famous 1914 photo shoots (solo portraits of the girls), and probably the 1913 photo shoots (the ones of the girls around Alix is a famous one) exist.  I bet they do, somewhere.  They're lovely beaded gowns (well, for the older two only in 1913, but for all four in 1914!), but I prefer the 1914 style better!

Did they take formal portraits EVERY year? I haven't seen formal ones for every year.

I wonder that as well, as I have not seen formal family portraits for every year, only 1896, 1898, 1899,1901, 1904, 1906, 1913, I have not seen any other proper formal photos from other years.
Being a Royal Family I would have thought that one would exist of them for every year.
The children had a series from 1910 and 1914 and a few when they were little but apart from the photos in court costume that is it that I have seen.

Well...Having nice clothes is not to be snobbish. Besides, people wanted to see their Empress and the Girls properly dressed!
