It's Hard to be the Princess

A reminder on the wall of Provender House near Faversham to Princess Olga Romanoff that the burdens of royalty continue to weigh heavy long after the monarchy has passed. The Princess, the daughter of the eldest nephew of Tsar Nicholas II, was our guide when the Historic Houses Group visited her home near Faversham.

We not only had the pleasure of touring an extraordinary rambling house dating to the 12th century with numerous 17th and 18th century additions, but were introduced to the whole of the Russian Royal family in portraits, photos and anecdotes. If you aim to go on the first Tuesday of the month then you will have the best chance of having the Princess herself as your tour guide - a truly memorable experience.
