King George VI and Queen Elizabeth attended church in Hertfordshire in 1937.

Thank you CyrilVladisla for sharing the video!

The King and Queen looked very happy in Hertfordshire. I did not know that The Queen Mother was baptised in All Saints church near St Paul's Walden Bury.

I have no idea where to put this question except that I normally frequent the British Royal Forums and WWII happened during King George VI reign. Moderators, if there is a better forum to put this in, please do so. Here is my question: I plan to read this book on WWI because from what I have read it seems to be a one book synopsis of WWI for the non-historian and gets excellent reviews. Is there a similar book on WWII for the non-historian that would give a general understanding of it---certainly not detailed? I would be willing to read a set of books as long as they don't require a degree in history to understand. Thanks.

Where are the ashes of Princess Margaret, who was so determined to be with Papa?

There's AJP Taylor's The Second World War : An Illustrated History. An excellent overview of the conflict.

Not to be confused with his well known work The Origins of The Second World War which is a bit more heavy.

In the vault at St George's Chapel.

Edit - I realise now that you probably mean where are they in the photo. Presumably they're behind a corner we can't see or possibly beneath the cross on the altar.

The free standing slab of stone must be her memorial with a medallion of the princess above.

In that photo I put you can't see well.
But in this photo you can see Princess Margaret's memorial, which is next to the tomb of King George VI and Queen Mother.

Or possibly a blood clot, all of which was brought on by his terrible health due to the lung cancer. We don't know when he died or when the Queen acceded, either. But it seems to have been peaceful. That's something.

I visited St. George’s chapel a few years ago, ironically on February 6, also my patents’ anniversary.

This is so touching to me...they’ll all be together

There is a vault under the chapel where the coffins of The King and Queen and the urn of Princess Margaret rest. It is believed that the vault has room for a total of six coffins and that The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will eventually rest there as well.

I had thought he had an embolus, so perhaps we are both wrong?

Here's a little further reading on who's buried at St George's and the various vaults.

That makes me very emotional, honestly.

As for George VI’’s (my favorite) death, he did have lung cancer...but he died of coronary thrombosis. He was very ill even before suffering the coronary thrombosis and very likely would have passed away of the cancer at some point not long after...

In many cases with cancer, as the cancer spreads, it causes other systems in the body to malfunction and then stop working completely. Such was the case with my mother who had lung cancer. The cancer metastasized throughout her body which eventually caused her heart to stop beating. I believe this was the case with George VI. It's why he peacefully passed away in his sleep the morning of February 6, 1952.

Photograph of George VI and Queen Elizabeth taken on 15th December 1947, which was to be used for a commemorative stamp to celebrate the King and the Queen's Silver Wedding Anniversary. The 2½ d and £1 stamps were issued on the 25th anniversary, 26 April 1948. Queen Elizabeth was wearing "the Oriental Tiara, made for Queen Victoria in 1853 and a diamond and ruby necklace with matching earrings". The King was wearing "a naval jacket with ribbon bars". This portrait was also used for commemorative stamps for New Zealand, as part of the previously scheduled Australia and New Zealand Tour in 1949 (later cancelled).
