Further to Queen Mary and who her friends were, in The Royal Jewels, Menkes makes mention that Queen Mary and Mrs Greville were good friends.

Yes, it was. She died not long after. I don't know if it was the last public event period (big or small) she was part of. George himself died just months ater the Jubilee.

I read that her death affected George V death who died a month later on  20 January 1936.

I think you are right Royal. I read George was never seen in public again after Victorias funeral, it really hit him. He cancelled the state opening of parliment and later wrote "How I shall miss her and our daily talks on the telephone, no one ever had a sister like her".

He didn't survive much longer after that  :(

Wenn I read youre beatifull quote from King George V on Toria,I was thinking about my dear old aunt the sister of my grandfather.
Thier dear sister died two weaks ago, after the funeral she said to my mother and to me ''How I shall miss our daily talk on the phone my beloved sister''
She was the youngest of three and my grandfather the one in the middle, she was verry close with her elder sister and the called every day.
Well it had nothing to do with Queen Mary but almost the same quote was said by my dear old aunt.

Because it is almost 80 years ago HM the queen was born here are some nice flashbacks from the beginning of her life.
 Little ''Lilibet'' Christening on 29th may 1926 with her parents and grandparents.
 The other two her grandmother with her granddauchter who is showing her smile in the first picture.

What a stupendous start to this new thread!  I've never seen any of these pictures before!  Thank you, merci, danke, obrigado (don't know the Dutch- sorry  :-* )

P.S.  Mary Adelaide really was immense wasn't she?  That corset must of have been made of titanium...


Well yes she was but be glad the corset was titanium because it takes a lot to hold such a grand a lady who deserves her own book! ;D ;D ;D  GD Ella you must start on the "Fat Mary" book immediately.  I find "Fat Mary" and Marie of Edinburgh very interesting-almost more so than QM and Missy.
