Nicholas and Alexandra to visit Victoria

August 15, 1899

The Daily Telegraph's St. Petersburg's correspondent has sent a dispatch to London with the news that the Russian Emperor and Empress will pay a visit to Queen Victoria in late August or early September.  Nicholas and Alexandra will then travel to Copenhagen to visit King Christian IX, and then will "make a brief stay at Darmstadt."

Empress Alexandra is a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and Nicholas II is a grandson of Christian IX.
