ROMANOV FAMILY: RARE PHOTOS – BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY’S VISIT ON THE STANDART.

On June 9, 1908,  King Edward VII became the first British monarch to visit Russia and his Romanov cousins.  Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra were Edward VII’s nephew and niece, and he met them and the entire Romanov family on the waters of the Bay of Reval (today Tallinn). The king and his wife, Queen Alexandra, joined the Romanov family onboard the Russian imperial yacht The Standart.

β€œIt is with feelings of the deepest satisfaction and pleasure that I welcome your Majesty and her Majesty the Queen to Russian waters. I trust that this meeting, while strengthening the many and strong ties which unite our Houses, will have the happy results of drawing our countries closer together, and of promoting and maintaining the peace of the world.”

The photographs below were also taken during the Cowes Regatta British royal visit on August 2nd of 1909. Read more ROMANOV FAMILY: RARE PHOTOS – BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY’S VISIT ON THE STANDART.

Although little Tsesarevich Alexei had an angelic face, just like any other child he loved getting into mischief. When he was about 5 years old he got bored at a fancy palace dinner. So what would any little boy do? Well, he crawled under the table and noticed a fancy slipper worn by one of the fine ladies dining.
