Marie wrote in her book that it wasn't a pleasant match and forced upon her by Ella but Warwick argues in his book about Ella that they had exchanged very warm letters to each other.

According to Prince Nikolaos the dress was of silver cloth with 12 diamond buttons reaching to the end of the dress, it had open sleeves hanging from the shouders to the waist.
The bride wore diamond earrings, and three strings of pearls which the Tsar offerred as his personal present. The Kakoshnik and a long veil and the miniature Imperial crown in diamonds......a 4 yard long of red velvet and ermine.....
Sounds like a very elaborate beautiful dress. No wonder they needed pages to assist her.

I wondered if he were still alive. I read Marie's bio. and she said she had to leave the boy in Sweden, I'm sure for succession reasons. How hard that would be!

On April 20, 1908, the Associated Press reported:

Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna has been receiving deputations from the local towns, the nobles, local businesses and the troops of the local garrison, and was congratulated by them on her approaching marriage.
