I just remembered a passage in Carolly Erickson's Lillibet that might be of interest. "One former employee was found to have purloined a large number of valuables from the underground vaults at the palace, including Queen Mary's engagement ring..."

Also this might be a silly question, but what is the keepers ring?

Does anyone recognize the brooch Queen Elizabeth's wearing at the Goddard Space Center? I've never seen it before.

I'm so glad to have an answer to a question I've had on my mind forever! Thanks so much!:D  In the Hennessy-Pope biography there is no mention of the ring and that is one of the most thorough biographies of Queen Mary out there. Is there any description of the engagement ring from George?

I was wondering whether any pictures of Mary's engagement ring from Eddy exist. And also if there is any description of the ring.

What a wonderful visit for her! Her hats were sensational especially at the Kentucky Derby! She is said to have been fascinated by the experience of conversing with the astronauts. Prince Philip reportedly asked the astronauts, "Where did you go when nature calls?"

The video can be watched at www.whitehouse.gov. The video includes the arrival and Queen Elizabeth's speech.

Another movie with Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary, and George V is "All the King's Men". It's supposed to be very good.
