Having a deposed foreign monarch staying on your turf is terribly inconvenient when you’re trying to cosy up to the successor government, but sending such a monarch back to face execution is seriously Not Done, especially when the British royals get to Not Interfere With Government, Honest on the subject. The diplomatic service would try to get the subject quietly shuffled aside and forgotten; if that seemed to be failing, the Russian royals would be quietly informed that comfortable accommodation had been arranged for them in Zurich or Morocco or somewhere.

That's especially true in this case, where it would not even solve the problem. If you just had the Czar, maybe you could find him guilty of something and extradite him. But in this case you also have his children, who'd continue to be the nearly same irritant to whatever government came to power in Russia. A couple of them are even underage. Sending girls back to be executed too is [not] going to fly even with the part of your public who hates the Czar, never mind those who care anything about either human rights or national honor.

Yes, this is the best place to post it.
