My two history crushes ♥
The similarity between King George V(to the right) and Tzar Nicholas II(to the left) was so remarkable that they were often mistaken for each other. The most embarrassing case of mistaken identity took place at the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Mary of Teck, in 1893. During the wedding reception the Prince George was mistaken for Tzar Nicholas from one of the guests, who asked him if he came to London for state affairs or only for the marriage. The Prince George replied that as it was his wedding, he felt obliged to be present.
