I have recently returned from Ekaterinburg, where I took part in the Tsar’s Days events, including the Divine Liturgy in memory of the Holy Royal Martyrs, performed on the night of 16/17 July, by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia.
I am pleased to announce that I will issue a special issue of SOVEREIGN next month, dedicated to these events.
The No. 7 Tsar’s Days 2018 issue will feature a collection of articles, and news stories marking the 100th anniversary of the death and martyrdom of Nicholas II.
It will also feature an illustrated summary of the Divine Liturgy, the procession from the Church on the Blood to the Monastery of the Holy Royal Martyrs at Ganina Yama, exhibitions, and much more.
This issue will also include a full summary of my personal journey and experiences, and highlighted with a selection of the more than 500 photographs which I took during my visit to Ekaterinburg, Ganina Yama, and Porosenkov Log.
This SPECIAL TSAR’S DAYS 2018 ISSUE (125 pages + more than 100 black and white photos) will be going to the printers in early August, and should be available for sale from the Royal Russia Bookshop at the end of August or early September.
