I read somewhere she had to have invitro feritializition or whatever they used back then. I don't if there is any truth to it. But it doesn't really matter because they were very happy.

I think they could have had artificial insemination, but remember they've only done in vitro the last 25 years of so (think Louise Brown). I have heard that in connection with the family of George VI and another royal family (but I can't remember which).

That story was reported by Kitty Kelley in her book The Royals. Ms. Kelley claims to have spoken to a woman who had the same gynecologist as The Queen Mum and knew what was being done.
Personally, I really don't know how much creedence I would give Ms. Kelley.

Doctors are not supposed to give that type of information. It is against the law. Especially sence it was the Queen Mum it seems that information would be strictly guarded!

I'd take anything Kitty Kelley said with a grain of salt.

I LOVE the fact that George VI's portrait is on the wall behind the QM and the children; it's like, although he wasn't able to see them in life, he is watching over his growing family in death. So neat!

This is an extract from a new book by someone who worked for the late Queen Mother and is very very amusing. I don't really like tell-all books but this seems to be done in a sweet way and gives a good insight into the Queen and the Prince of Wales too. The book will be a must have.

I'm glad you liked it lord rankin. I liked it because it showed the Queen Mother that I'd always imagined.

Did this ever happen?

Apparantly, the statue is being sculpted and will be unveiled next year next to the statue of George V in the Mall.
