H.I.H. Grand Duke George Mikhailovich of Russia was a guest at the opening of the new exhibition, “Russia, Royalty & the Romanovs.”

The new exhibition at the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace opened to great acclaim. Russia, Royalty & the Romanovs interweaves the familial, political, diplomatic and artistic stories of Britain and Russia and their royal families from initial contacts in the mid-16th century, through alliances, marriages and two World Wars.  The unique relationship between the two countries is explored through works of art, including paintings, porcelain, sculpture, photographs and miniature masterpieces by Fabergé.

The exhibition shows many works which served as diplomatic and personal gifts between the House of Romanov and the House of Windsor over several centuries. For more information on the exhibition, click HERE.
