While the Canadian magazine "Royal Russia” is always of interest to readers of The Russian Legitimist for its excellent and well-researched articles on Russian Imperial history and the House of Romanoff, the latest issue (No. 11) is notable for a new, in depth and personal interview with HIH the Grand Duchess Maria Wladimirovna of Russia, Head of the Russian Imperial House.
The interview covers broad-ranging topics, from the Grand Duchess’ childhood in France and Spain, to the happy and inspiring marriage of her parents, and her relationships wth other Royal houses. The Grand Duchess also addresses some more controversial topics, including her grandfather Grand Duke Kirill’s role during the Revolutionary days of February 1917, the “Ekaterinburg remains” and the position of the Russian Imperial House on these and other issues.
In addition, the periodical has several excellent articles on the history of The Lower Dacha at Peterhof, Imperial hunting and fishing traditions, and a look at a day in the life of the court of Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich. Russian Legitimist highly recommends this issue, which may be acquired by visiting the Facebook page of Royal Russia, as well as at the Royal Russia bookshop which may be found online here.
