Does anyone know what kind of relationship King George V & Queen Mary had with Queen Elizabeth & princess Margaret?

Warren 05-28-2005 11:24 AM

Very Close

They had a very close relationship, especially between Queen Mary and Princess Elizabeth. It's as if the King and Queen knew there would be trouble with the Prince of Wales and were making sure that Elizabeth would be prepared for whatever happened.

I read (can't remember where) that King George was very partial to Princess Elizabeth. It seemed as though he treated his Lascelles grandsons nearly as strictly as he'd treated his own sons when they were children, but he was far more relaxed with Princess Elizabeth. Princess Margaret was only about five when he died, so he wouldn't have related to her at all except as a young child.

Queen Mary, as Warren said, took a lot of interest in Princess Elizabeth's education and development; biographies have said that she was surprisingly indulgent of Princess Margaret because Princess Margaret knew how to be funny and daring and also probably because, as the younger daughter, she didn't have as much importance in the royal scheme of things. Goodness only knows what Queen Mary would have made of the Townsend affair, though. Something tells me the indulgent granny would not have been in evidence.

How nice to know that there was a sweet relationship between the grandparents & the princess'. I read that King George was very pleased with Bertie (King George VI) & Elizabeth's match. He apparently had a soft spot for her. he was quoted saying something along the lines of "You would be a lucky man if she had you" to Bertie. This could also explain the sweet indulgence.


What a lovely picture Squidgy.
I do see a nice family resemblance between the two.
Thank you.

Toria.
 
I read Georgy was so close to his sis Toria, that when she died in 1935, he knew he was gonna die, too, in fact he died in Jan 1936, but David, his son , called his aunt- a b... of the first order- it seems she was sharp- tongued, very mean and bitter. No wonder , after what her mum did to her.

Yes, you would be bitter too if your Mother forced you to be her companion spinster daughter!!

Elspeth 08-12-2005 10:08 AM

Yes - being a princess hasn't really been that great a proposition until recently. They got married off to some foreign stranger for political reasons and had to go and live abroad or had to stay at home and become Mama's lady in waiting.

sure, that was so selfish of Queen Alix, she chose Toria, who, though not being beautiful at all, she had many chances of starting a family of her own, as she was 1 of the Wales Princesses, it was very cruel of Queen Alexandra not to let marry any1, she usually pretended to agree over a proposal to Toria, then used to deny it all using her deafness as an explanation.....

You are exactly correct. I think Toria was actually in love at one point and wanted to marry but Queen Alexandra made sure that never happened. It is truly sad. At least Beatrice got married (albeit she still had to stay with Mama)!!!

I've never heard that Princess Victoria had a chance to marry someone. Who was her suitor?

I think it was Lord Roseberry , I'll check out if that's really the name, who used to live in Napoli, Italy- when she and her family came to Napoli, they were guest of Lord Roseberry , Toria fell in love with him, Q Alexandra was so opposive , in the end he left the town, so mysteriously, and got back only when the royal yacht had left Napoli's bay, his Palace is still here, QEII resided there, back in 1965.

I mentioned earlier that King George V was poisoned by his doctor when the King was dying. Here is a link to an article in the BMJ that details the circumstances of the King's death.

http://bmj.bmjjournals.com/cgi/conte.../308/6941/1445

I am a doctor myself, and I find the actions of Lord Dawson abhorrent. The King was comatose, and the doctor did not relieve him of suffering--he merely ensured the time of death, making the life of King George V depending on the time of starting the printing presses.

You are quite right on this. It was desirable for the King to die before midnight so it could be reported by the "reputable" newspapers of the day. This was thought befitting His Majesty's status.

Personally, I feel injecting the equivalent of what is known as a "Speedball" here in America is quite disgusting and done for the wrong reason. He was not euthanized to spare him pain. He was euthanized to spare the Crown of having HM's death reported by lesser newspapers!!
