At King Baudouin Funerals, Grand Duchess Maria directly took a seat of the close Royal Family. Too late to say her to leave. There is no relations between her and our Royals. But se taught as Head of the Romanov she had not to sit in the last rows. President Mitterand and Madame were at the 3e row.
I wonder if main Royals will attend the Wedding at St Isaac Chuch in St Peterburg . At least 2 Hours standing!

Yep, no rows of chairs and banks in Russian Churches! But this is nothing compared to their processions - for example for the murdered Romanovs: Olympic speed for long miles! Very sporty!

So, it is better to only send young and fit Royals!

Bu I wonder, if anybody at all will show up, with all the sanctions in place and nonsense.... Might be a new start for diplomacy.

Usually the Bureau Protocol will have designated every seat: 3F for that person, 7E for that person, 9L for that person. It is also on the information map and the invitation itself. Usually aide-de-camps will guide guests to their seats, as printed on their invitation.

Probably Maria Vladimirovna (born in Madrid, like Fabiola) and her parents (Vladimir and Leonida) had warm contacts because they not only lived in Madrid but also had a villa in Andalucía, close to Motril. Who knows there have been warm and friendly contacts between Baudouin & Fabiola and the Spanish Romanovs. That could have be a reason for her prominent position.

Georgi is barely visible way in the back, attempting to peer over the heads of people in front of him.

Awkward....

She is walking a thin rope. Ukraine was "occupied" for centuries by the Tsars, her very own ancestors.

I think she explained her position in a way that is consistent both with the current sovereign status of the Ukraine and its previous union with Russia under the Tsars.

Quote:

Fully recognizing the independence and sovereignty of all the states that were formed after the fall of the USSR, I am at the same time convinced that all of the peoples who historically belonged to the civilizational space of the former Russian Empire are united by the concept of a Homeland in the highest spiritual and cultural sense of the word.

I can hardly think of a more diplomatic way to present a balanced position but at the same time, I can't help but see the "tactful" way she presents Ukraine's imperial past. It wasn't exactly "united" with Russia. And the Russian Empire's civilizational space is a formula which is just wrong on so many levels.
The very name Little Russia - Малорусия - is offensive and reveals much about the attitude the Tsars had to this part of their empire. Tnank God it got rid of long ago.

In my mind Grand Duchess Maria has chosen good words in her statement for this terrible situation.

In is the problem of Royal Houses, even deposed ones, that they can't be as outspoken as they wanna be - It is all politics...

On an abstract level and about the war: The Russians are terrific defenders. They are very good and almost invincible in defending something - their borders, their folks.

But what are they defending in Kiev? Nothing!

Emperor Nicky II. and his family lost everything in World War I sending the Imperial Forces to fight west of the border for something the Russian population was not ready for to bring sacrifices.

Grand Duke Giorgi was hospitalized and underwent surgery for a hernia.
Quote:
On Sunday, March 20, 2022, H.I.V. Grand Duke Georgy Mikhailovich was hospitalized and urgently operated on due to an abdominal hernia.

The operation was successful. In the next days, His Imperial Highness will be discharged from the clinic and return home.

Note: I put this news in this thread, because the Grand Duke Giorgi thread is closed.
