They kind of never talked about poor Prince John though. I have no idea how much of the documentary is about him though.

Queen Mary, consort of George V (1867-1953)

I recommend this Having watched the first instalment of this new interesting 3 part TV documentary which is based on a “cache of recently unearthed letters: here, a bundle of correspondence tucked away at Harewood House, near Leeds, the marital home of Princess Mary, the only daughter of George V and Queen Mary... the letters written by and to the royal siblings and their friends –...”

Nothing.. since the thrust of the programme is about the way George V used his family to rebuild the image of the monarchy after the war..JOhn had died by then and in any case was not ever likely to lead a public life. The programme is about the "new image" of the RF in the 20s and 30s, where they were seen as supporting charities, doing tours, "working for the Firm" and getting respectably married nad having families (all of course except Ed VIII)

Dalriada, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Very interesting. We hear so little of Princess Mary. I went to Harewood years ago, fantastic Adam interiors & breathtaking garden

The Royal Family Twitter account has released a section of Queen Mary's diary and letter to George VI after listening to Princess Elizabeth's (later Elizabeth II) broadcast to children during The Blitz for BBC’s Children’s Hour on 13th October 1940.
The Royal Family @RoyalFamily
[Crown] Queen Mary - listened to her granddaughter’s broadcast with great pride, writing in her diary on that day:
[Radio] “At 5:15 we listened to Lilibet’s broadcast in the children’s hour. She made a charming little speech and said it so well”

The Royal Family @RoyalFamily
[Scroll] The following week, she wrote to The King, praising his daughter’s first public address:
🖊 “Lilibet’s broadcast was admirable, so well delivered, so calm & collected, we were all so enchanted, her voice so like Elizabeth’s, I have written to Lilibet to congratulate her.”

🎙 Exactly 80 years ago today, The Queen (then 14 year-old Princess Elizabeth) made this broadcast to children around the world in the midst of The Blitz. Her sister Princess Margaret, then 10, was by her side during the recording for the BBC’s Children’s Hour.
