The Romanov family travelled in the Royal Imperial Yacht 'Schstandart 'to visit King Edward VII at Osbourne House. The four girls were chaperoned with their governess and bought trinkets and postcards in the local shops. Eyewitnesses remember them as shy but friendly and dressed in pretty lace blouses and huge hats.
