The British and Russian Royal families were once tightly entwined through war, alliance and dynastic marriage, and the gallery's Royalty & The Romanovs exhibition will explore some of the historic events and family meetings from Peter the Great's visit to London in 1698 right up to Nicholas II, who was forced to abdicate during the Russian Revolution.

The exhibition will include archival documents, portraits, photographs, sculptures, and even a few miniature masterpieces by Faberge. Some of the works on show were intended as grand diplomatic gifts, whilst others were intimate personal mementos between our Royals and the Romanovs.
