But that is what continues to puzzle. Olga was every bit as much George's cousin. She was photograohed and covered in the press until her death. I haven't seen anything about Xenia after the early 1920s.

In what year was this photograph of Grand Duchess Xenia and Grand Duchess Maria taken?

The only explanation I can think to is that there was a basical difference between the two sister's situation in the 1920s.
I mean, Xenia was residing in the UK, with nearly no incomes, while Olga was residing in Denmark firstly with her mother (a Danish Princess by birth) and later in a farm she owned and ran with her husband.
So, it seems to me that on the one hand Xenia was more in need of help and support than Olga and on the other hand of the two sisters only Xenia was living in the country where their cousin George V reigned.
Just a guess, maybe had Olga settled as well in the UK perhaps the King would have offered her a grace-and-favour residence too.

I often wondered if the remains of Xenia and Olga will returned to Russia for a possible reburial?

Grand Duchess Xenia is buried at the Cimetière de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, France.

Grand Duchess Olga is buried at the York Cemetery, Toronto in Canada.

Thanks. Interesting mystery. I haven't followed their descendants, that should meke for interesting reading. I would enjoy an interview of any of the sister's living descendants.

"Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna said the Allies 'were all words and no actions' for not saving her brother Tsar Nicholas II and his wife and kids from execution in 1918..."

It was her cousin George V, that backed out. It had nothing to do with the Allies. And the Kaiser wanted to save them, before the end, but haughty Aix refused.
