Queen Mary. A good close-up of Queen Mary's coronation gown. She is wearing no bodice ornaments so this photograph may have been taken some time after the event itself. With various adjustments this gown saw service at subsequent state occasions including the Delhi Durbar.
The Queen's mother-in-law. Princess Alice of Battenberg (1885-1969) was the mother of Prince Philip. She was born deaf, but read lips in several languages. She married Prince Andrew of Greece and Denmark in 1903 and had 5 children. Her family was exiled from Greece in 1917. Her later years were devoted to charity and she founded the order of nuns known as the Christian Sisterhood of Martha and Mary.
