Almost all the Duchess' jewellry belonged to Princess Alice but yes, that particular brooch was often worn by the Princess. I believe she wore it in her 100th birthday pictures.

It's less about The Queen's position, Alexandra. She is only an extended family member. It was her aunt by marriage. Nevetheless, she is The Queen and head of the family. Therefore, she was out there as 1) head of the family, 2) to pay her respects, and 3) to support the Gloucester family. However, because she isn't an immediate family member, she kept a respectable distance.

P.S. This is my first post, but I enjoy the website thoroughly.

Mountwindsor you are absoloutely correct. The Queen kept a respectable distance from the Gloucester family as they were the chief mourners but still granted her presence on the steps as an acknowlegment of the contribution that Princess Alice had given to the Royal Family. It was a great tribute to the late Princess. I also thought that the Queen's message on her wreath, signing it "Lilibet", was so sweet as it acknowleged that Princess Alice was a loving aunt and fully fledged working member of the family when the Queen was still a child. The Duchess must have called her Lilibet as a child and this clearly continued all her life. Indeed the then Princess Elizabeth was a flower girl at the then 35 year old Duchess of Gloucesters' wedding in 1935 so the Queen would have seen her as a working royal long before she reached maturity herself. It's kind of like if Princess Beatrice was the current heir to the throne and Sophie died wheen Beatrice was Queen and almost eighty. No one would find in odd that Beatrice would see Sophie as an "adult" who must be respected and this must also be the way Queen Elizabeth viewed Princess Alice. It's the younger generation respecting he older. Wonderful manners and very moving.

I imagine there will be a large number of the royal family at her memorial service.

There might even be some Norwegian royals (Princess Astrid ?) as King Olav was very close to Princess Alice's generation.

February 2, 2005: Memorial Service for Princess Alice was held at St. Clement Danes Church in London. Princess Alice died on October 29, at the age of 102, and her funeral was held last November.

What on earth is Lady Davina wearing? She looks as though her legs are gift-wrapped.

Princess Alice Speaking

If you go to www.bbc.co.uk and choose any video link, put 'Princess Alice' into the search box and you'll get a link that reads 'Queen's Aunt Princess Alice Dies'. There's a clip of her speaking about William's death - It's left me in tears. She just seemed so lost and broken.

Does anyone know how Princess Alice came to be known as "Princess Alice"? I know that it was decided when her son, Prince Richard, became Duke of Gloucester - presumably to not have any confusion between herself and her daughter-in-law, but I always assumed that in Britain, princesses can only be born, not "made"....
