THE PRINCE AND I
PRINCE GEORGE (YURI) DE BEAUHARNAIS ROMANOVSKY

Romantic date rowing in Central Park. Karin and Yuri enjoying
the boat ride.

Juris surname is Romanovsky. A branch of the Russian Tsar family
(Romanov) his family fled (Romanovsky) during the Russian
revolution 1917 from Russia to France and settled in Paris.
( His French family middle name is de Beauharnais.)

I was introduced to Juri on Manhattan NYC in 1965 as he was
engaged in importing French art to the US using French contacts
in Paris. I got a painting as a gift. The image is a French scene
(A street in Paris). The painting is in dark gray, greywhite and
orange / yellow colors. The painting is now on my wall to my
apartment in Oslo, Norway and reminds me of times past.

Jury was an important force in establishing a Russian Orthodox
Church in New York i e by gathering considerable funds. As a
gratitude for his foundation engagement he was awarded "The order
of the Church of Cyprus".

Looking at photo # 2 I remember one of our romantic rowing
sessions in Central Park NYC. Being a gentleman Yuri used costly
beige brown deerskin gloves when he was rowing with the oars.
I had not experienced this before and it made a strong impact
on a girl from Norway.

Juri brought me to many high society parties on Manhattan where
he was specially invited as a "Royal". I used to wear a long
white silk evening skirt and long white gloves to these events.
The uniformed doorman received us when we arrived as the taxi
stopped at the side of the long green awning that covered the
entrance up to the door, wall to wall carpeting in the entrance.
The doorman announced our arrival at the first floor entering the
second floor, on a loudspeaker: "Arrival of Prince George De
Beauharnais Romanovsky and miss Karin Baardsen". George and I
thereafter walked together on a red carpet up to the second floor
walking through a lot of high society people standing on each side
of the walk, as we were talking and nodding to them was we walked.
It was an exciting and educational period of my life that today is
rimmed in hazy rose color!
