Think I may have sorted the picture of the hankie. Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

Matt

It could be a commemorative Coronation handkerchief like the one below - the background colour seems similar:

You have the Tudor Rose, Thistle, Shamrock and Daffodil in the corners so that suggests the 4 home nations so that wouldn't be Elizabeth the First. It also seems more modern. Could be for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. She would have been ER too.

It appears to me that the hankie would be rather over-elaborate for any Royal, whether Queen or otherwise, to be using in everyday life. In my view the suggestion that it's a Coronation souvenir from 1953 is probably correct.

Hi,

Thanks for that. I was presuming it was a souvenir piece rather than a used royal piece, just didn't know who since the ER through me.

But seems my 1st thought of Queen Elizabeth II was correct. Thought queen mother is an interesting point.

Thanks for your help.

Matt

I think it is much more recent than the coronation. That shade of blue I have seen on china for the golden jubilee in 2002 and some of the commemoratives for the 'longest reigning monarch' were that shade of blue and purple. I would be very surprised if it is older than 15 years.

Thanks for that. I was trying to look up the colour scheme as thought it might relate to an event but couldn't seem to find anything related.

It's in pretty good condition and don't think it's 60+ years old.

Thanks

Matt

I definitely think it's an item commemorating an event though, and I have seen pieces that hold their colour for remarkably long periods of time, even from the Regency. Could this hankie have been made for the Queen's Golden Jubilee perhaps?

If its commemorating a specific event, would not that event be mentioned on it most times? The coronation one posted earlier say what it is commemorating.

So...My Sister always gets together w/"The Girls on the Street" for chit chat & whatever once a week & today was that day at her friend Bridget's home. I just finished spending a week & a bit w/her & my Brother in Law due to Pre Op Clinic, the actual Dental Surgery a week ago tomorrow & follow up/getting the stitches out this afternoon.

Considering I was told all my Molars had to go, I'm very grateful only six had to go. However, there were two he ended up having to take some bone, not a lot, but some to get them out. So I'm sore, but it's bearable & I've been through worse. He was very happy at how well things are healing in fact, as he was worried especially about those two spots in particular & understandably. I see him again in about a month.

Why did I share all that? Because it's the reason this post is happening. Bridget knew I needed a bit of a pick me up after this week. Even though things went so well, Surgery is Surgery after all. Which brings us to...

Bridget had these clippings of Royal stuff of her Mom's. All she wanted was them to go to a good home where someone into the Royals would truly appreciate them. Since she knew about my interest, asked my Sister if I'd want them & Judy took them.

Now she'd found some Genealogy info about my Dad s Great Great Grandfather while searching on her Dad's Family (Half Sisters. Same Mom, different Dads) had copied it for us & put it all into those plastic sleeves & then a binder. So she just took two more covers & popped a clipping into each one.

Would you like to see them!?! Thankfully, I opened it at the back so this was the first one I saw....

This is the Photo Session of TRH The Duke & Duchess of Edinburgh w/their Children in the Summer of 1951 & released before their Tour of Canada.

Now even w/the tears, it's in amazing shape, but as good as it was, the other one...Oh, the other one...

Yes, you are seeing right. That, my fellow Royal Forums Members, is what is left of The Daily Mail's Front Page coverage of The Wedding of HRH The Duke of Windsor to Mrs. Wallis Simpson & when I saw that after unfolding it? I let out such a loud gasp, that on seeing my face, Dad thought I was having an attack of some sort...LOL!! Sadly as you can see, only the picture was wanted & oh, what a shame, but at least this much survived the years.

I still can not believe it & in a bit of a state of shock over it, but also needed to share it w/others who would understand. I also hope you now get the big build up I put you all through, but talk about a Get Well Gift, huh!?!

I can truly empathize with you on how oral surgery is just that. A surgery with all the trimmings and the pain afterwards. I hope the oral surgeon gave you some good drugs to help with the pain. Don't forget to keep rinsing the mouth with warm salt water if that's what the doctor ordered. It does help and saves troubles in the long run.

All I can say about the mementos is wOw!! Those are genuine pieces of royal history in their original state and a beautiful addition to a collection that means something to you. I'm reading King Edward VIII's biography at the moment and almost up to the point where he marries Wallis Simpson so it was really nice to see a photo of the original picture in the Daily Mail that you posted.

The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh really were the golden couple of their time weren't they? Probably even more so than the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are now I'd wager.

Thanks much for posting these and hope you feel back to full swing soon.

At an out of town bookstore I have purchased The Grimaldis of Monaco by Anne Edwards. This copy was in excellent condition. It has a very detailed account of the reigning Princes of Monaco.
