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
