The last one is one of just a handful where you can get any kind of look at her engagement & wedding rings. I tried blowing the photo up on time but couldn't get much detail.  :( Usually she has her hands in her lap (as in the other 2 photos) or is holding a fan/flowers or has on gloves.

You could add the lighting.  ;) Plus the position of their hands.

I just stumbled onto this site, and I am simply amazed by it, especially this thread.  Thank you all so much for
these wonderful, and for me, rare shots of Queen Mary.   I must be heaven!   I'm a regular visitor to her namesake liner in Long Beach CA, and have crossed the Atlantic twice on the new QM2.   Three Cheers, and Huzzah! to one of England's most noblest queens.

Welcome, Cunarder!  :D

Did you know this is Part II of the May thread and she features in many, many threads in the Windsor section also?

To me,  George always looked like a little boy playing dress-up with an enormous crown (and he looks petrified) in the Cornoation portraits, but by 1935 you can really see the change--the self assured monarch has actually grown into his crown it seems.

The Queen seems rather smaller than HM in the 1935 pic...where she seemed taller in 1911...

I love that picture of the Yorks and Princess Marina.  

Marina was so CHIC and the Duchess of York was
so Not.

Is there a Marina site...?...She was the "Diana" of her day...great ickle hats with a big jewel on the side...there's even a song about those hats...Tedders has revived the look...when not in folded paper hat...
