To show to be crowned Empress of Russia, it would be with and by the Orthodox Priests. The other day I came across this short video to share showing the Great Crown has been inspired in this timeline. Song is from the heavens. So it is no coincidence that a replica has been made.

During her reign Catherine extended the borders of the Russian Empire southward and westward to absorb New Russia, Crimea, Northern Caucasus, Right-bank Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, and Courland at the expense, mainly, of two powers – the Ottoman Empire and the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. All told, she added some 200,000 square miles (520,000 km2) to Russian territory.
Catherine's foreign minister, Nikita Panin (in office 1763–81), exercised considerable influence from the beginning of her reign. A shrewd statesman, Panin dedicated much effort and millions of rubles to setting up a "Northern Accord" between Russia, Prussia, Poland, and Sweden, to counter the power of the Bourbon–Habsburg League. When it became apparent that his plan could not succeed, Panin fell out of favour and Catherine had him replaced with Ivan Osterman (in office 1781–97).
Catherine agreed to a commercial treaty with Great Britain in 1766, but stopped short of a full military alliance. Although she could see the benefits of Britain's friendship, she was wary of Britain's increased power following its victory in the Seven Years War, which threatened the European balance of power.

Notice in the background is an open book and this could indicate that Catherine the Great clarified the Laws of God and also bringing key points of address that needed attention in various aspects of the operation of society, as she would be given 'divinely guided' to do.
Ie: Healthcare, education, government, justice, banking etc. Each person sets a step for the next person to built on and when someone is appointed from the heavens, officials know.
In this timeline there are serious issues to address including child protection - for parents to protect their children. Bringing the end to child marriage globally - to educate and empower both men and women in this area and the dangers of children having children, the ending of female genital mutilation (female circumcision - a permanent disfigurement on women and psychologically too. Again explaining why. The Laws have been corrupted in UK and other parts of the world.
Skills can be taught. Wealth can be used to enable people. In learning just one years military spending can fund 300 years of United Nations programs to benefit people, war is not the answer to peace. As with aid money and 'the charity industry' want booming, means auditing and enforcing accountability for misappropriation of charity and aid funding.
Peace, love and best wishes
