The visit took place to resolve the Russian Orthodox Church and agreed with its Foreign Ministry.

Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna engaging into the shuttle diplomacy with Vatican ...It is an interesting choice on the part of the Russian Orthodox church, which has got able silver-tongued diplomats. It remains to be seen how long it will take for the parties to sign a peace treaty.

Could the Orthodox church ever forgive the Latins? If the Grand Duchess is sincere I wish her well, but the Vatican dilikes dealing with women.

As I am from Russia,I am glad to see that the actual Patriarch Kiril tries to be closer to Catholic Church and maybe in one day to change the styles,the contribution of Maria Vladimirovna is great in this context!

Lenin should not trample on the Orthodox sanctity, the House of Romanov believes
5 March 2011

Head of Russia's Romanov Imperial House Maria Vladimirovna favoured the idea to rebuild the memorial chapel to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the House of Romanov in Kostroma.

"I think the reconstruction of the memorial chapel will put the historical record straight and put an end to violations of Christians' religious feelings," the Great Duchess says in an answer to the letter from architect Yevgeny Yefremov.

If that has been confirmed,it's great as she was not invited to the British Royal Wedding

I am not quite sure whether she did.

Her parents were guests at the wedding of Princess Caroline and Philippe Junot in 1978.

I suppose it is very important that the russian orthodox clergy is supporting Grand Duchess Maria.

It doesn't hurt and she has been diligent and genuine in supporting the role and traditions of the Orthodox faith as Head of the Imperial House.

All the members of the Imperial House of Romanov have always been very orthodox.

She certainly does have her son under her full control, no? She looks like a Harry Potter witch; or like Dolores Umbridge.

What she chose to wear is certainly not flattering. Your comparing her to Dolores Umbridge is quite funny. I imagine the book character looking like that, rather than like Emma Thompson who (I believe) portrayed her.

Just seeing her in that draped flowery outfit and slide on heels, she looks like a woman who should be in a Florida retirement home. As for Umbridge, she definately looks like the cartoon sketch and should have been casted instead of Emma Thompson.

Her son looks like a mafioso boss in training. I wonder if he frequently feels smothered by having to live with his mother all the time.
