The book suggests that these incidents took place during the mid '80s.
"I shall be very disappointed," she remarked for the record, "if George doesn't come up again." Queen Mary upon hearing her husband was to ride in a submarine.

When asked the question of when her eldest son would return to the country Queen Mary said, "Not until he comes to my funeral."

Quote
Nemo me impune incessit

What does it mean? :)


found at Wikipedia:
Nemo me impune lacessit

 (English: No one wounds me with impunity, literally meaning (lacessere = to appeal to, to provoke, to attack): No one provokes me with impunity) is the royal Scottish motto, used historically for the Kingdom of Scotland where it appeared on the Royal Arms of Scotland. Today it is the motto the monarch of the United Kingdom uses when in Scotland, and it appears on the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom when in use in Scotland.

A more colloquial translation into English would be "No one attacks me and gets away with it." Similarly, in Scots this is usually rendered as "Wha daur meddle wi me? ", which more literally means "Who dares meddle with me?"

It is also the motto of the Order of the Thistle, the Scottish chivalrous order and of the British Army regiments The Royal Regiment of Scotland and Scots Guards. It was also the motto of the former Royal Scots, Royal Highland Fusiliers and Black Watch regiments.

The motto appears as an inscription on the rim of the 1984 and 1994 "Scottish" editions of the British One Pound coin and is also referenced in the Edgar Allan Poe story "The Cask of Amontillado" (Poe was adopted by a Scottish merchant).

Wow that's pretty impressive. It's interesting to me how those words have so many connections!

I love seeing pictures of her and her grandchildren! That "part" of her life is one of my favorites in photographs.

Thanks for the background on the necklace! Is the necklace Anne's official property or is it a loaner from the queen?

In Leslie Field's book it says it was a loan to Princess Anne. I hope the piece, with its historical connections, stays in the main family and doesn't go to Anne and her children.

I was looking through Corbis and found some pictures of Queen Mary depicted in plays. I thought this was something interesting. Enjoy!

From the play "As Thousands Cheer" with Helen Broderick as Her Majesty.


And from "Crown Matrimonial" with Phyllis Calvert as Queen Mary.


From a more recent version of "Crown Matrimonial" with June Salter portraying Queen Mary.

I believe that the birth of HSH Princess Victoria Mary of Teck was one of the only times Queen Victoria went to Kensington Palace after her ascension.
