Crown Princess Marie - A photograph taken by her husband before the war



This picture is so amazing. How photogenic she was. Isn't that a century tree she's against? These plants, you wonder why they are't used my in symbolism with how strong they are.

Interesting that Missy likes to hike too. A hobby that she shared with her cousin Alice of Athlone. Queen Ena used to complain that Alice was like "a mountain goat" on the trails. Don't think Alice & Missy ever hiked together though.

When did she learn how to drive ? I know both Ducky & Sandra drove cars and very fond of the sport.

Missy was as well. I've seen several photos and mentions of her in auto magazines from the early driving era. It seems a lot of the young royals of that time were early devotees.

I wondered if Queen Elizabeth II's driver's licence look like ? Indeed. I wonder if the remaining sister (Baby Bee) also drives...
