The last record of Empress Alexandra in her diary: “July 16th, 1918~ 08:00 pm | Supper. Suddenly they called for Leonid Sednev as he should go and see his uncle. But Leonid escaped, I am not sure we would see him again. I played in bezique with Nikolay. 10:30 PM, I am going to bed”.
The next page is already dated for July 17th, but she never got the chance to write in it again.

Emperor Alexander III first crowned himself. Marie Feodorovna then knelt humbly before her husband, whereupon Alexander lifted his crown from his head and placed it on hers momentarily. Afterward, he took Marie Feodorovna’s own crown and held it in place on her head. One the emperor crowned his wife empress, Marie Feodorovna unexpectedly embraced Alexander in a touching moment. Grand duke Constantine (“K.R.”), Queen Olga’s brother, was moved by the sight, confiding in his diary: “I cannot describe, cannot express how touching and tender it was to see these embraces of husband and wife and kisses under the imperial crown - this ordinary human love in the glitter and radiance of imperial majesty.”
