Considering the things that have been happening to the royal princes, that is, the women they've been getting involved with, well, can you blame her? Georgi does have amazing potential though, and this is the closest I've seen him in photos; most photos are usually very distant from him.
^ Degenerate? Her brother Ernie wasn´t a monk, too.
Alexandra had a few blind spots in that area.
It is amazing how very pretty the girls had been, such a waste, really. They could have been saved so easily.
Alix seemed to have been a deeply unhappy person. There is no warmth of happiness in her eyes, even early on when the depth and magnitude of her troubles weren't that visible. The csar for example looked much warmer and happier, his eyes are much nicer. You can tell that he made te serious face because it was expected to look that way on photos. Alix however looks as if she never smiled anyway.
I think she had a serious fatalist approach towards life and really didn't give Russian society much of a chance ot get to know her and she was never very tolerant of the foibles of the aristocracy. She then failed to do what she could to save herself, she just left it 'up to God' and then really, didn't try to get out in any way she could. Or at least get the girls out.
