So sorry to hear of his passing. He will be missed here on the Forums.
I had no idea that the Boris who posted here (and with that avatar) was the Boris whose passing was mentioned on another Royal board. Very sad news.

I was surprised to hear this, I enjoyed reading his posts in the Royal Jewels sub forum. I'm sure he'll be missed, particularly in the jewellery threads.

Rest in peace, Boris.

Very sad news.
I've been missing him for a while. I thought it was strange he wasn't posting when Princess Madeleines got married...
He always shared his great knowledge and valuable aspects in a nice way.
Rest in peace, Boris.

His avatar was indeed Greta Garbo, AND it was Greta Garbo from the movie "Queen Christina" from 1933, a movie that told the story (Ok, hollywood version ) of the Swedish queen Kristina ( queen in her own right 1632-1654) His avatar was from the final scene, when she is standing on the ship leaving Sweden

Perhaps he was of Swedish descent? Boris was not an unusual name when I grew up in Sweden.

I'm so sad to hear this- his posts very much contributed to my love of royal jewelry and I appreciated learning from his expertise.

Condolences to his family.
