Bones of Russia's executed Crown Prince Alexei to be put on display

Breaking News

The bones of Crown Prince Alexei, the only son of Tsar Nicholas II, are to be turned into an object of worship according to a secret proposal being circulated within the Russian Orthodox Church.

The controversial plan emerged as Russia officially confirmed that the charred remains of two corpses found in a pit outside Yekaterinburg last year belonged to Alexei and his older sister, Maria.

The announcement, which follows months of DNA analysis and forensic investigation, is likely to convince all but the most diehard conspiracy theorists that none of the Royal Family escaped the firing squad that executed them 90 years ago today.
