The Queen of England and her family are invited next year to Ekaterinburg to participate in Nikolas II family execution commemorative events. The solemn ceremony will be devoted to the 100 years anniversary of the tragedy.

It's worth mentioning that Orthodox cultrure festival Tsar Days dedicated to Nikolas II family execution in 1918 is conducted in Ekaterinburg every year. The program of the memorial events always starts on the eve of June 17th with a sacred procession that walks from The Church of the Saviour-on-Blood. This church was built in the place of the infamous Ipatiev House. In this house's basement members of the last Russian Tsar's family were killed by Bolsheviks. Each year thousands of pilgrims join the sacred procession.
