Quote for the Day


Mary (1867-1953), queen consort of King George V of Britain, on being informed of the death of her son, King George VI. 

The wedding of King George V, Queen Elizabeth's grandfather, and Queen Mary in 1893. 

Bonus quote: 

Prior to George becoming King, George and Mary visited Portsmouth where they were entertained by the Commander in Chief of the British fleet, Admiral Sir John Fisher. Sir John offered to take Prince George down in a submarine, an invitation which was readily accepted. Mary was not supportive but suppressed her feelings. As the vessel disappeared below the surface, she murmured “I shall be very disappointed if George doesn’t come up again.”
