Click on this 3 shot sequence. Does it remind you of anyone? Grumpy Prince George maybe has taken a leaf out of Alexei’s book!

I always feel so emotional thinking about this terrible moment for the family. So great to be working with team. We are all totally dedicated to telling the story without embellishment, as it was.

Who said I was blaming Vic for mismanagement of supplies by commissariat ??? I was making a general comment about the war being a disaster.

Absolutely. British were not prepared for war. There was gross ineptitude in the mismanagement army supplies from the start. Men died needlessly through lack of adequate food, medicine, clothing and shelter. Neglect of the army was positively criminal

I've no doubt her heart bled for the wounded but was the war really necessary and what did it achieve?? About 900,000 war dead and a lot of horribly mutilated wounded on all sides. .

Shame Alix is nearly always absent from these photographs. So many of Nicholas with the children but Alix nowhere to be seen.
