Alexandra's my favorite British royal, beautiful inside and out. Probably one of the few royals of the golden era I can see myself wanting to personally know!

I think he called her "an old dear" when he had to visit her in Sandringham. Part of the letters to Freda Dudley Ward.

He actually wrote (York Cottage, Sandringham, 28th December 1920):

"I've got to go & dine chez ma grand-mere again tonight ce qui est assomant ['wearisome': by now Queen Alexandra was almost totally deaf, which made socialising with her very difficult] but dinner parties seem to do the poor old woman good so I suppose it's a kind act to go & my mamma & Mary are dining too.  To think that I've got another whole week of this ghastly existence sans Toi to stick out....."

Hardly an "old dear".

Don't think that was the same letter...he sounded better in this one. I was a bit offended when I saw the "old dear" comment since I am a fan of Alexandra.

There is no other mention of Queen Alexandra in his letters to Freda Dudley Ward.
