a Princess

Princess Mary (25 April 1897 - 28 March 1965), was the daughter of George V and Queen Mary. This postcard was bought and written just before her marriage on 28 February 1922 to Viscount Lascelles.

Dear Little Gracie,
Although you have never seen this lady, she really does live, and in London.   She is to be married Tuesday, and all school children here will have a holiday.  Don’t you wish you were here to have the same?
Love & best wishes,
Auntie Doff


  1. Heck with missing a day of school...I would have loved to be at that wedding! :)

  2. I didn't know much about her so this was interesting. I'm glad she kept visiting her brother the deposed king.
