Prince Charles was a 'gruesome child' says letter from Queen's cousin - Telegraph

The Prince of Wales was described as a "gruesome child" in a letter written by the Queen's cousin recalling how he took pleasure in watching her have a painful blister lanced.
...
She also mentions The Duke of Edinburgh, writing: "We had a long discussion about black stockings. Too stupid. He is so sweet."

Princess Alexandra, also known as the Honourable Lady Ogilvy, then concludes with a mention of a story written about her in the tabloid newspaper The Sunday Graphic, which folded in 1960.

Also from the Telegraph story:

She signed off: "Well look after yourself. With very, very many hugs & XXXX from Georgie."
It is believed that Georgie was a family nickname for her [Princess Alexandra].

The letter is priceless. Interesting to know that she signed "Georgie".

Now I wonder why she signed Georgie, considering that it isn't one of her names; I wonder where was this nickname from...

Some lovely portraits of Princess Alexandra & Family (apologies if they've been previously posted) =)
She's serenely beautiful and elegant. With a very "cool" sort of a presence.

Thanks for photos !
I can not help noting that Lady Gabriella Windsor bears resemblance to her aunt.

The look on the young Duke of Kent's face is quite something, like he's thinking, "I've got it made."
There's a profile of Princess Alexandra in January's MAJESTY MAGAZINE which is well worth reading.

Canada's oldest infantry regiment is celebrating its 150th anniversary with a royal visit and ceremony at Currie Barracks.

Princess Alexandra plans to visit Calgary on April 22 to commemorate the military service of the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada.

Wonderful news. She doesn't travel outside the U.K. very often representing the Queen. It says this will be her last visit in this capacity. I wonder how long she'll stay?

I wonder if her position is going to go to another member of the Royal Family?

Princess Alexandra cancels trip to Victoria

The air-travel havoc caused by Iceland’s volcanic eruption has led to the cancellation of the long-planned visit to Victoria by Princess Alexandra, who was scheduled to travel here from Britain to be part of the 150th anniversary of the Queen’s Own Rifles.

======

I hope this doesn't cancel Princess Anne's trip, too.

This is unfortunate. I feel badly for the soldiers who looked forward to her visit. (I'd hoped, too, for a couple of good pictures in HELLO Canada.)

You're right Iceflower, it is indeed a lovely picture of this great lady!

Has she ever worn the uniforms of "her" regiments? Any picture?

I can't remember any particular pic, but it wouldn't surprise
me if she did, MAfan!

On May 18, Princess Alexandra as patron visited The British Home
in Crown Lane to meet residents and pupils from neighbouring
Crown Lane Primary School.
