Russia: Royalty & the Romanovs at The Queen’s Gallery, Palace of Holyroodhouse, tells the story of the familial, political, diplomatic and artistic associations between Britain and Russia and their royal families from the late 17th century to the reign of Russia’s last emperor, Nicholas II, and beyond. The exhibition includes portraits, sculpture, photographs and archival documents, many of which were commissioned as diplomatic gifts, others as intimate, personal mementos, including miniature masterpieces by Fabergé.
