Mrs. Margaretta Eagar, who had been the Romanov children’s governess since 1898, remembered one particular Christmas when the little grand duchesses were so delighted to see their mother gorgeously attired for a holiday ceremony. They circled around her in speechless admiration when suddenly the Grand Duchess Olga clapped her hands, and exclaimed fervently, “Oh! Mama, you are just like a lovely Christmas tree!”
