But what a great story for the grandchildren; "Did I ever tell you about the time I fell in the grave of the Empress of Russia?". But hey, we've all done it.

Depends on how his career commences from this point onwards, I guess... BTW - what did you DO?

Empress's reburial important for historical memory of Russia - Holy Synod
October 6, 2006, Interfax News

Quotes from the article:

...Moscow, October 6, Interfax - The Holy Synod of the Russian Orthodox Church has expressed its gratitude to Queen of Denmark Margrethe II, members of the Danish royal family and Russian Culture and Mass Media Minister Alexander Sokolov for their contribution to efforts to rebury the ashes of Empress Maria Fyodorovna, mother of Russia's last Tsar Nicholas II, in St. Petersburg...

...The clergy described the reburial ceremony as "quite an important event in restoring the historical memory of Russian society" at a Synod session in Moscow on Friday...

Reporter: Emma Griffiths
___EMMA GRIFFITHS: Yuri Dobrovolsky leads a group of about 150 nobles. But he says he has the backing of many ordinary Russians, too. Like 36-year-old Vladimir.
"That is what our country, our people need," he says. "They say this is the last royal burial. But I hope that it will happen again, that there will be another Russian monarch."
Many Russians believe that's the last thing they need. For them the reburial of the Empress is simply a political stunt. And even those who would rule in a new Russian monarchy, are hesitant to fight for it...
This is my first real post, so please don't beat me up too bad. I think that right now people may be a little hesitant to fight for it, but according to this story I found on another royalty site there is support for it. Here's a small quote from the article:

Quote:
Over the last 10 years, the number of Russians supporting monarchist ideas has risen threefold. A September poll by the All-Russia Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VTsIOM) indicated that 19 percent of Russians agreed with restoring the monarchy, but only if an acceptable candidate can be found. Support is higher in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Welcome and thanks for sharing your thoughts!
I'm familiar with the interesting article you provided. The restoration process will either take some time to achieve or will be so fast it will take all of us by surprise. Whatever happens I hope is for the best of the people of Russia. But this Reburial seems to be an important key part of the process.
Time will tell, Admiral Steven, time will tell.
Thanks again.

Does anyone have any photos of the Queen or Crown Princess curtsy-ing in front of the coffin? You never get to see the Queen curtsy really.

With the rival claimants both at the service, did they speak at all? I've not seen any pictures of them together. Indeed, all the foreign royals gathered around Maria during the service. I've seen pictures of Nicholas with Prince Michael so presumably the guests mingled a little.

I think at that point there was no real hostility towards each other; at the reburial service for the main Imperial Family there was no sign of dissension.

I don't think so; other than the personal rivalry, when it comes ot stuff like this, the Romanovs really pull together and then behave and dress well. The whole clan has such class when it comes to stuff like this. Nikita looks handsome and Rotislav like such a nerd; I mean that in a nice way, not bad or mean.

Just who is Sebastian and Nikita Romanov in the burial pictures? Are they supposed to be the grandsons of prince Nicholas Romanov?(b 1922)

I wish someone would have explained to CP MAry that this is a reburial, not a place to make a fashion statement. Same with the smiling, she looks like a politician in campaign mode, not at a sacred reburial of a Dowager Empress of Russia returning to Russia after having to have died in exile. As for Maria, I had ot admire how she really campaigned for this.

If you look for pictures of QMII's recent visit to Russia you can see her visiting the tomb and curtseying to the sarcophogis.
She also did so at the service in Copenhagen before the coffin left for Russia. You can see it around 3:10 in the clip posted above.
