Thanks for mentioning my eyewitness report. :)

Of the highest ranking royals guests, the Empress was the first to leave. But, indeed, some lower ranking guests had already left before her (not to mention the 'ordinary citizens', like me), f.e. Grand Duke George. The senior royals waited in their seats, it was not like they were just standing by the door of the Cathedral. As you can see in my pictures, one by one, they walked from their seats straight to the door and left. :)
