I don't think they imagined the murder of the family in total. George wanted to save his job, I don't think he ever thought his life was in danger. The English would not have shot the Newly minted Windsors, but it could have jeopardized the Monarchy as it were. And blame must also fall on the Tsar himself. In the early Kerensky days, getting them out would have been easier and the Kaiser made a genuine offer that was refused by Alexandra out of hand. And the Kaiser could have done it. So, knowing to run when you should is also a culprit. The Tsar must have known from the onset his life was, certainly, in danger, as was his wife's. He never made a quick nor forceful decision and didn't at this time either.

I wouldn't believe anything the 'Daily Mail' says.

Michael of Greece said in a documentary that nuns visiting the Tsar & his family removed jewels & other valuables and his them in the area around Jekaterinburg. Though I'm not sure where he would have that information from.

From what I have read the family did not have that kind of possessions with them in captivity, so how could there be 26 boxes of anything and jewels, won't the guards search for those type of things and steal them?
