George II had much sympathy for Edward VIII in his love for Mrs. Simpson. That was why he went to Greece as he knew he would be welcome to holiday there with Wallis.

George was the more disposed to be lenient at the time the rumor whispered that English lady shared his life without a job.

Elisabetta lost most of her jewelry after she escape from Romania. The authorities only allow her to take 10 items, the rest of her jewelry & goods she had to leave behind (including her portrait by De Laszlo (which is now lost)).  :(

I believe the photo was taken as they were embarking on their exile.

I think she sold some and lost most when she left Romania.
