"On the 12th August, 1904, the little Grand Duke, Czarovitch was born….He was baptised when he was twelve days old… The little sisters were delighted with the new brother, and made many quaint and critical remarks about him. They were at the baptism dressed in Russian Court costume of blue satin, brocaded in silver and trimmed with silver braid and buttons, and they wore silver shoes. Their head-dresses were of blue velvet embroidered with pearls; they looked very sweet and quaint.” (M. Eagar, Six Years at the Russian Court)

"There exists a famous set of photographs that were taken during the wedding festivities. It seemed as if it there were more Queen Victoria descendants and crowned heads, crowded on steps at the rear of the Edinburgh Palais, in order to mark the occassion, than ever before…. The princial photographer was the Coburg court photographer, Professor Uhlenhut. He took many of the pictures and had about thirty of the guests sitting in all kinds of poses and combination.These photographs were circulated all over Europe…" (Ilana D. Miller, Four Graces)
