Here’s your royal highlight news of the week (aka the events missed) for the week of May 16 – 22, 2022.
On Saturday, May 21, 2022, it was announced that Her Serene Highness Princess Victoria Romanovna is expecting her first child in autumn 2022.
The Italian-born princess married His Imperial Highness Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia, the heir to the Imperial House of Russia, on October 1, 2021, in St, Petersburg, Russia.
Congrats to couple!
Here is the 1996 documentary entitled, Last of the Czars, that you may enjoy watching over the weekend.
“When he came to power in 1689, Tsar Peter the Great began to force through the modernisation of Russia. But one country fascinated him: the France of Louis XIV. He went there in 1717. The Palace of Versailles and Peterhof Palace invite you to discover this famous voyage.”
Subtitled for those who do not speak French nor Russian.
Also, on opening day, beginning at 1:30 PM, there will be a lecture from Dr. Mally, Professor of History, Emeritus, from the University of California, Irvine. During the lecture, Dr. Mally will:
… examine the famous Russian jeweler, Carl Fabergé, and how he established his global reputation during the reigns of Russia’s last two tsars… Dr. Mally [will also] explore how we can use Fabergé’s work as a way to understand the social, political, and cultural upheaval that eventually led to the end of the Russian empire.
If you happen to live in southern California or will be visiting the area why not visit this special exhibition? It ends on January 6, 2013. 🙂
