The Queen's Christmas message - 2002:



I am being ever such a nosey parker I know, but who is the dark haired woman in the photograph on the table behind the Queen and next to ones of George VI and QEQM? Is it perhaps a young Benedikte of Denmark or maybe a Bowes Lyon cousin?

Here is Benedikte as a young woman just for comparison:-

then again it may be Crown Princess Margareta of Romania:-

Sorry I am being frightfully nosey!

That was the year that Her Majesty lost both her mother (March 30, 2002) and sister (February 9, 2002). The photo is of Princess Margaret.

She certainly did know how to fill her time with parties and the like, now didn't she!
