I wodner if he might actually be a lot more comfortable with a royal bride rather than a commoner. Princesses are usually socially immured and I do not think that a commoner who is so used to independence would enjoy living a quiet life with Georgi and his mother and really understand how much his heritage might mean to him.

There are a lot of views on here taht suggest that there is little to no point of him worrying about a 'suitable' bride, but what if he did marry a commoner, but the commoner didn't take seriously the things he takes seriously? Like living quietly, being in the 'family sphere' of things, about making a dignified appearance, following traditions that are important for him and his mother, plus maybe walking two steps behind.

However dethroned, there are a lot of royal families that keep the same traditions and customs alive, mainly to preferably carry on and keep things connected to the past. Nothing wrong with that and every family has it's traditions they prefer to observe and respect through the generations. A commoner might take a different view however, of royal tradition and not see the point of many of them.

If he married a royal bride, the bride might understand the importance of the traditions, rules, and understand that there are tight knit family ties that prefer to be maintained. Nothing wrong with that and if Georgi understands and perversely (no matter how politically incorrect) wants a royal bride, it should be understood and respected on here. He can serve Russia, legally, as a private citizen, but socially still have standards.

Neither did I. Grand Duke Michael of Kent has such a lovely daughter Gabriela & she looks a real princess! I wish he had an eye on her...

While it's true that a commoner spouse might not see the point of certain things (traditions or customs), a royal princess might also not see the point of certain things as well (respecting it but at the same time not seeing the point of it), especially if she didn't grow up in the same cultural background or similiar cultural background. I guess it just depends on the person.

True, but a born princess wouldn't have to be taught these things and a princess born might make things less complicated. She would fit in, Maria would approve, and then they could work together on making a living and then things would continue peacefully. It would also be nice ot see a princess marry a prince, instead of a prince marrying another commoner.

The daughter of Prince Michael of Kent would be a wonderful Tsarina.

Plus it would strengthen ties between the Romnovs and House of Windsor.

I believe Theodora is even more suitable than lady Gabriella(mainly due to religion),but it's unlikely as Theodora is very free-thinking,going to Hollywood and as GD Maria Vladimirovna is very traditional,it's highly unlikely they would ever be together.
I have a thought,I know it sounds fantastic,but what if Princess Eugenie,for example,could be Georgi's potential bride?

That is a wonderful idea! Both princesses would suit him perfectly I guess. Why are the girls are not interested in real princes? Why would they go to pubs for that?! Sorry, do not want to be rude

If Maria wants a real chance for her son/grandson to become a Tzar, maybe she should find a way of marrying him to one of Putin's daughters..lol

One point

And for the propositions of Gabriella, Theodora, Gabriella etc...they were educated to serve their family, their people, their religion, their country etc....why one day will they decide to honour anothers goals, interests?

Why they don’t date princes? Just because they didn’t feel in love with!

You know, many women don’t be educated to accept to be given to a man at the top of social hierarchies : rich and influential!

Lot of them dream about sweet man who love her, prince, poor, baker, banker they don’t care etc...

That's a good one. Who knows, maybe negotiations are already in the process . On a serious note, I could see Her Highness thinking in those terms. His daughters may not of a royal descent, but they are related to someone who is pretty high on the food chain of Russian power. She could work that to her and her son's advantage. I guess we'll see as time goes on.

I cannot imagine Georgi marrying Putin's daughter. I read his interview once where he told of his intention to merry only a suitable to his high rank girl. He told that in a very diplomatic way of course...as he is very religious and and it matters him a lot to have an orthodox christian bride

I think he knows what he is doing and he's being smart about it.

He's not a Tsarevich. He's a Prussian Prince, and neither Russia or Prussia have ruling houses any more.

I don't think so. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Lady Gabriella Windsor the great granddaughter of George V? The same George V who refused to offer his cousin, Nicholas 11 and his family asylum in England for fear of other Russian hating countries attacking. After all, World War 1 was still happening when the Russian Revolution of 1917 started, wasn't it? I think Maria V. would definitely blow a gasket or have a coronary if her precious Georg and a Windsor were paired. But, that's just my opinion!
