Grand Duchesses Olga, Tatiana, and Maria Nikolaevna of Russia at the funeral of Grand Duke Constantin “KR” Constantinovich, who died of a heart attack on 15 June 1915. Anastasia and Alexei were at home with their mother.
Nicholas’s diary entry from that day:
At 10:30 I set out with Ella, Olga, Tatiana and Maria to town, straight to the cathedral. The requiem service and funeral lasted two and a half hours. It was sad to look at Aunt Olga, Mavra and particularly poor Tatiana [KR’s daughter] when they lowered Kostia’s body into the grave! Lunched with Mama. Returned to Tsarskoe Selo at 4 o’clock. Went out on the ponds with Alexei. The day was fine. Dined with Ella, Masha and Dmitri. Engaged in talk during the evening.
