The article analyzes squatter cults of the Royal women (Princess Diana, Queen Mary Stuart, Tsarevna Sofia). These cults are treated with religious positions. It concludes that the cult of Sofia is outwardly neo-pagan nature and is not approved by the Church authorities, yet it contains the explicit Christian component, and the official canonization of the Tzarevna is possible in future. The situation with the veneration of Mary Stuart is similar. But the perception of Diana as a sacred object has a clear pagan character.
