Here is a copy of a letter written by Grand Duchess Anastasia to her cousin Lord Louis Mountbatten (Dicky), the son of her mother’s eldest sister Victoria. Dicky was only a year older than Anastasia and a year younger than her sister Maria. The cousins probably only met once, in 1909, when the Imperial Family visited their family in England.
