Prince Dmitri Romanovich Awarded Order of Friendship
Topic: Dmitri Romanovich

For the first time since the Russian Revolution, a member of the Romanov family has been presented with a prestigious award in Russia. The Order of Friendship has been awarded to Prince Dmitri Romanovich, in recognition of his outstanding charitable work in Russia. Prince Dmitri has served as Chairman of the Romanov Fund for Russia since its creation. He is also the Chairman of the Prince Dmitri Romanov Charity Fund, created in 2006.

During a press conference, he talked to reporters about the upcoming celebrations in 2013 marking the 400th anniversary of the Romanov dynasty. He said that he hopes that the reconstruction of Our Lady of St. Theodore Church in St. Petersburg will be completed in time for the celebrations. He, along with more than 200 descandants of the Romanov family from all over the world are expected to be present for the consecration ceremony. He also said that the Romanov Family Association hopes that the remains of the Tsarevich Alexei Nikolayevich, along with his sister, Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna, will be buried alongside the rest of their family at the Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral.

Born in 1926, Prince Dmitri Romanovich has a very prestigious background: he is the second son of Prince Roman Petrovich, grandson of Grand Duke Peter Nikolayevich, great grandson of Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolayevich, and great-great grandson of Emperor Nicholas I.
