The mother and wife of Nicholas II arriving in Moscow for his coronation, May 1896


The Dowager Empress has a model of a crown attached to the top of her carriage...
... while her daughter-in-law - not yet crowned - does not.
The Imperial ladies having descended from their carriages, they are joined by the Tsar, while their trains are arranged by court pages. The Tsar's
uncle, Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich, Governor General of Moscow, stands directly behind his nephew.
