The Royal Victorian Chain awarded by a British monarch to Russias last Emperor, Nicolas II, has been presented on long-term lease to Moscow Kremlin Museums from the art collection of the British Royal Family a gesture of friendship, Russias deputy culture minister told a handover ceremony on Thursday.

"We are witnessing an historic moment acquisition of a priceless relic, a symbol of friendship and cooperation between Russia and Great Britain," Vladimir Aristarkhov said. "This is especially symbolic coming on the eve of 100 years since the events of 1917 resulted in the tragic death of Emperor Nicolas II," he said.

Reading the article, it appears that it isn't a "gift" from the British Monarch to the Kremlin Museum, but just a loan to the Museum. So the Queen remains the owner of the Chain, if I have correctly understood.

So... I guess that we can only hope that Maria and Alexei will be buried again in 2017 or 2018.

I had written a post on Empress Alexandra's wardrobe in the Winter Palace:

And then yesterday I was thrilled to see the Director of the Hermitage's wonderful video on the Empress' dress:
