Does the Royal Family plan an observance for the centenary of the murder of the Russian Imperial Family?
The British pretenders are responsible for most of the ills of the world. But that particular one?
"The unsealing of Cabinet papers kept during the tenure of David
Lloyd George, the British prime minister during the First World
War, in 1986 revealed it was King George V, rather than the head
of his government, who decided not to give the Tsar and his family
refuge in Britain when Alexander Kerensky and his Menshevik
government, who overthrew Nicholas ll in the initial stage of the
Russian revolution, asked the British to accept the Romanovs as
exiles. This disclosure made it clear that the King, advised by
his private secretary, Lord Stanfordham, was convinced that
harboring Europe’s most notorious autocrat at a time when the UK
was erupting in worker led anti-war strikes would only further
endanger the already fragile stability of the British Monarchy.
What these papers don’t clarify, however, is the long held rumor
among Europe’s royal and aristocratic elite that the real decision
to leave the Russian Imperial Family to their fate wasn’t made by Stamfordham, but by George V’s far more trusted advisor, his
consort, Queen Mary."
