  I posted this picture of George V   Silver Jubilee elsewhere, and would like to know who are  the older man in uniform and the older lady next to David[Duke of Windsor}?

The man was given several identies, but the woman, no answer.

Can anyone help?

The older man i think you are referring to is the Earl of Harewood, husband of HRH Princess Mary.

Sorry to say, I am not sure what woman yu are referreing to.

I think it is Queen Mary´s brother the Earl of Athlone and his wife Princess Alice (daughter of Queen Victoria´s youngest son Leopold).

I don't even know what photo Joye is referring to -- David is not even in this balcony photo of George V's jubilee, let alone a man and woman next to him???  :-[

Re post 127.  Q. Mary at Geo.VI Coronation picture. Who  are the older pair on the left?

I have identified  all the others in the picture...

Is there a picture of Alice of Gloucester anywhere on this occassion?  She is the one royal woman missing from the photo.

Boofer, you are wrong.. Fife is clearly seen, next to Geo V , and behind the children.

Joye, isn't Alice of Gloucester fourth on the left in the first photo in post 127?

I don't know who the man on the extreme left is, but I think the lady next to him may be Princess Marie Louise - it does look like her to me.

Grace: Regarding the photo in Post 137 - I think the couple are the Earl and Countess Strathmore, parents of Queen Elizabeth.  They are sitting next to the Duchess of Kent and the Duchess of Gloucester.





This picture is from the Glittering Royal Events Message Board.

Post 285 shows the picture clearly.
http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f282/vickyandfritz/britain/Picture2109jubileew.jpg.Next to David on the right of the ohoto are  2 older people, a man in uniform, and a woman in a light colour dress and hat.Who are they.?

Boffer  is wrong and so am I.  I should of said Harewood not Fife.  I mix these 2 sons inlaw up.

It would seem that the discussion is about more than one picture here.  Most confusing.

Regarding #286, I agree that the couple to the right of the Prince of Wales are the Earl and Countess of Athlone, the Earl being a brother of Queen Mary and the Countess being, as stated above, the daughter of the Duke of Albany.

Please use post 285 picture.

L to r.
Duke of Connaught, Xenia, Grand Duchess of Russia, Geo V's favourite cousin, Maud of Norway, Geo VI, Mary Princess Royal, Geo V, behind him is Harewood[Lascelles], the a Lascelles son, QEII,Q. Mary, Marina of Kent, George of Kent, another Lascelles son, Q> Mum, Toria Geo V's sister,  Possibly Earl. of Athlone  Q Marys brother  ? , David D of Windsor, Alice  Countess of Athone ?

 Thankyou to  who it was who supplied the Athlone info.  I think you are right, and it would make a loy of sense, they being Q Marys relatives.

Missing from picture are the 2 Gloucesters, and Margaret, although she is in 1 of the others.
I am satisfied now that the mystery is solved.
