I am unable to find the original thread on QM, so if anyone can supply the link I'd appreciate it.

Also, and forgive me since I've not had the chance to read any of QM's bios yet (but my Christmas list is now rather lengthy........lol), it has been mentioned several times in this forum about GV and QM's exile.  Perhaps this was discussed in the original thread, and if so, I apologize for the redundancy.  But I have to admit.........I'm just dying to know!!

Their exile? I didn't think they were ever exiled.

I didn't either, IA.  That's why I am baffled.  Perhaps I'm wrong.  I'll go back and reread the threads.

Yes, as far as I know that never happened. Sometimes people say things on threads that aren't true, not everything posted on here is always factual. Maybe the poster meant when they went to India to be crowned- wasn't that a really long trip? Also, before they ascended the throne George and May went on a few long trips like Diana and Charles would years later. It wasn't exile though it did separate them from their kids for awhile.

Here's Part III at least of Queen Mary's threads.  King George V and Queen Mary weren't in exile in any period of their reign.

I suspect you mean the long Imperial Tours they took before George V became King or perhaps the tour to India (for the Durbar in 1911)
Mary and George undertook an 8 month imperial tour in 1901 as Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York (George didn't become Prince of Wales until their return to Britain), they undertook another 8 month tour to India in 1905.
In 1911 of course they travelled to India  again (Mary was very fond of the sub-continent) for the Durbar.
They also made a number of European trips during the reign of Victoria and Edward VII and after their own accession however after the war they rarely travelled abroad (the courts of May's youth were gone).

I think Queen Mary was deeply saddened by Prince John's death but perhaps not in the way a mother today would be losing a child.  To begin with, she grew up in an era where it was not a rare occurrence to lose a child to illness.  Secondly, her position meant that her children were raised by nannies and it's well known that although she cared very much for her children, she was not a particularly maternal woman.  Thirdly, she was a very dignified royal lady who never would have broken down in front of anyone if she could help it.  She also truly believed it was a blessed release for John, as the symptoms he had suffered for so long appeared to be getting even worse as he got older.

Just my opinions of course.

Grace,

I agree!! However, you cannot compare 1900  through  WWI to 2008!  The influences we are raised with and form our decisions from are just too different!

I always had the up most respect for "Old Diamond and Emerald Drawers" because she did her job

The younger Windsor Royals could take a good hard lesson from her.

Queen Mary


I believe that the glass cabinet next to her is of her 'collections', the objects she was given (sometime reluctantly) by the owners of them who houses she visited. " Oh I simply can't leave without saying goodbye to that dear little.....  ;)

I have the un-coloured photo, which I will post tomorrow if anybody wants.

I was watching a tribute video on Queen Mary on YouTube, and the most wonderfull thing passed by! In this video their is a voice recording of Queen Mary, during the launch of the RMS Queen Mary on September 26, 1934 in Glydeside Glasgow, Scotland. How wonderfull to hear her voice fore the very first time, and I thought it was just the voice you would expect Queen Mary to have. I could not let this be unshared and that's why I post you all the link towards HM Queen Mary's voice, it really completes her image fore me. Enjoy en let me know what you think of it!
