Although her father was of German extraction, he married into the British Royal Family, and "May" was born and brought up in England. At the age of 24 she was betrothed to Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence, the heir to the British throne, but six weeks after the engagement was announced he unexpectedly died of pneumonia. The following year she became engaged to the new heir, Albert Victor's brother, George. As his Queen Consort from 1910, she supported her husband through World War I, his ill-health, and major political changes arising from the aftermath of the war and the rise of socialism and nationalism. After George's death in 1936, her eldest son Edward became King-Emperor, but to her dismay he abdicated the same year in order to marry twice-divorced American socialite Mrs. Wallis Simpson. She supported her second son, Albert, who succeeded to the throne as George VI, until his death in 1952. She died the following year.

She was the eldest of four children, the only girl, and "learned to exercise her native discretion, firmness and tact" by resolving her three younger brothers' petty boyhood squabbles.[2] They played with their cousins, the children of the Prince of Wales, who were similar ages to themselves.[3] May was educated at home by her mother and governess (as were her brothers until they were sent to boarding schools).[4] Her upbringing was "merry but fairly strict";[5] the Duchess of Teck spent an unusually long time with her children for a lady of her time and class,[5] and enlisted May into various charitable endeavours, which included visiting the tenements of the poor.[6]


Although her mother was a grandchild of George III, May was only a minor member of the British Royal Family. Her father, the Duke of Teck, had no inheritance or wealth, and carried the lower royal style of Serene Highness because his parents' marriage was morganatic.[7] However, the Duchess of Teck was granted a Parliamentary Annuity of £5,000 – in addition, she received about £4,000 a year from her mother, the Duchess of Cambridge.[8] Despite this, the family was deeply in debt and lived abroad from 1883, in order to economise.[9] The Tecks travelled throughout Europe, visiting their various relatives and staying in Florence, Italy, for a time. There, May enjoyed visiting the art galleries, churches, and museums.[10] George III (George William Frederick; 4 June 1738 – 29 January 1820) was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 25 October 1760 until 1 January 1801, and thereafter of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland until his death. ...

Engagements

In December 1891, May was engaged to her second cousin, once-removed, Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.[12] The choice of May as bride for the Duke owed much to Queen Victoria's fondness for her, as well as to her strong character and sense of duty.

Despite this setback, the Queen still favoured May as a suitable candidate to marry a future King; and Albert Victor's brother, Prince George, Duke of York, now heir to the throne, evidently became close to May during their shared period of mourning.[14] In May 1893, George duly proposed; May accepted, and they were soon deeply in love.

May married Prince George, Duke of York, on 6 July 1893, at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace, in London.[16] The new Duke and Duchess of York lived in York Cottage, a small house on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk; they also had apartments in St. James's Palace, London. York Cottage was a modest house for royalty, but it was a favourite of George's, who liked a relatively simple life.[17] They had six children: Edward, Albert, Mary, Henry, George, and John. is the 187th day of the year (188th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Duchess was devoted to her children, but she put them in the care of a nanny, as was usual for upper-class families at the time. The first nanny was dismissed for insolence and the second for abusing the children. The nanny would pinch Edward before he was presented to the Duke and Duchess, deliberately making him cry, so that he would be returned to her speedily. She was replaced by her effective and much-loved assistant, Mrs. Bill.[18]


History remembers Queen Mary as perhaps a distant mother. She, at first, failed to notice the nanny's abuse of the young Princes Edward and Albert,[19] and her youngest son, Prince John, was housed in a private farm on the Sandringham Estate, in the care of Mrs. Bill, perhaps to hide his epilepsy from the public. However, despite her austere public image and her strait-laced private life, Mary was a caring mother in many respects, revealing a fun-loving and frivolous side to her children and teaching them history and music. Edward wrote fondly of his mother in his memoirs: "Her soft voice, her cultivated mind, the cosy room overflowing with personal treasures were all inseparable ingredients of the happiness associated with this last hour of a child's day…Such was my mother's pride in her children that everything that happened to each one was of the utmost importance to her. With the birth of each new child, Mama started an album in which she painstakingly recorded each progressive stage of our childhood."[20] He expressed a less charitable view in private letters to his wife after his mother's death: "My sadness was mixed with incredulity that any mother could have been so hard and cruel towards her eldest son for so many years and yet so demanding at the end without relenting a scrap. I'm afraid the fluids in her veins have always been as icy cold as they are now in death."[21] Edward VIII (Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David; later The Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor; 23 June 1894 – 28 May 1972) was King of Great Britain, Ireland, the British Dominions beyond the Seas, and Emperor of India from the death of his father, George V (1910–36), on 20...

As Duke and Duchess of York, George and May carried out a variety of public duties. In 1897, she became the Patron of the London Needlework Guild in succession to her mother. The Guild, initially established as The London Guild in 1882, was renamed several times, eventually taking the name of its Patron in 1914.[22] On 22 January 1901, Queen Victoria died, and the Duchess of York's father-in-law, Albert Edward, ascended the throne as Edward VII. For most of the rest of that year, George and May were styled TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York. For eight months they toured the British Empire, visiting Gibraltar, Malta, Egypt, Ceylon, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius, South Africa and Canada. No royal had undertaken such an ambitious tour before. The Duchess broke down in tears at the thought of leaving her children, who were to be left in the care of their grandparents, for such a lengthy period of time.[23] In May 1901, representing King Edward VII, the couple opened the first session of the Australian Parliament in Melbourne, shortly after the Commonwealth of Australia came into being on 1 January 1901.

The Princess of Wales at the Coronation Service and Ceremony, 1902

On 9 November 1901, nine days after arriving back in Britain and on the King's sixtieth birthday, George was created Prince of Wales. The family moved their London residence from St James's Palace to Marlborough House. As Princess of Wales, May accompanied her husband on trips to Austria-Hungary and Württemberg in 1904. The following year, she gave birth to her last child, John. It was a difficult labour, and although May recovered quickly, her newborn son suffered respiratory problems.[24] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 391 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (642 × 985 pixel, file size: 67 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) This is a chromolithograph of Queen Mary (at the time known as the Princess of Wales). ...

From October 1905 the Prince and Princess of Wales undertook another eight month tour, this time of India, and the children were once again left in the care of their grandparents.[25] They passed through Egypt both ways and on the way back stopped in Greece. The tour was almost immediately followed by a trip to Spain for the wedding of King Alfonso XIII to Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, at which the bride and groom narrowly avoided assassination.[26] Only a week after returning to Britain, May and George went to Norway for the coronation of King Haakon VII and Queen Maud (George's sister).

On 6 May 1910, Edward VII died. The Prince of Wales ascended the throne as George V, and May became Queen Consort of the United Kingdom. When her husband asked her to drop one of her two official names, Victoria Mary, she chose to be called Mary, preferring not to take the name of her husband's grandmother, Queen Victoria.[27] Queen Mary was crowned with the King on 22 June 1911 at Westminster Abbey. Later in the year, the new King and Queen travelled to India for the Delhi Durbar held on 12 December 1911, and toured the sub-continent as Emperor and Empress of India, returning to Britain in February.[28] Both Queen Mary College, Lahore, Pakistan, and Queen Mary's School, New Delhi, India, were established after her India visit.

The beginning of Mary's reign as consort brought her into conflict with the Dowager Queen Alexandra. Although the two queens were on friendly terms, Alexandra could be stubborn. She demanded precedence over Mary at the funeral of Edward VII, was slow in leaving Buckingham Palace, and kept some of the royal jewels that should have been passed to the new queen.[29] Princess Alexandra of Denmark (Alexandra Carolina Marie Charlotte Louise Julia; 1 December 1844 – 20 November 1925) was Queen Consort to Edward VII of the United Kingdom and thus Empress of India during her husbands reign. ...


During World War I, Queen Mary instituted an austerity drive at Buckingham Palace, rationing food, and visiting wounded and often dying servicemen in hospital, which she found a great emotional strain.[30] After three years of war against Germany, and with anti-German feeling in Britain running high, the Russian Imperial Family, which had been deposed by a revolutionary government, was refused asylum, possibly partly because the Tsar's wife was German-born.[31] News of the Tsar's abdication provided a boost to those in Britain who wished to replace the monarchy with a republic.[32] After republicans used the King and Queen's German heritage as an argument for reform, the King abandoned his German titles and renamed the Royal House from the German "Saxe-Coburg-Gotha" to the British "Windsor". The Queen's relatives also abandoned their German titles, and adopted the English surname of Cambridge.

Queen Mary's staunch support of her husband continued during the latter half of his reign.

In the late 1920s, King George became increasingly ill with lung problems, exacerbated by his heavy smoking. Queen Mary paid particular attention to his care.

Within the year, the new King caused a constitutional crisis by announcing his desire to marry his twice-divorced American mistress, Mrs. Wallis Simpson. Queen Mary disapproved of divorce, which was against the teaching of the Anglican Church, and thought Mrs. Simpson wholly unsuitable as the wife of a King. After receiving advice from the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Stanley Baldwin, as well as the Dominion governments, that he could not remain King and marry Mrs. Simpson, Edward abdicated. Though loyal and supportive of her son, Queen Mary could not comprehend why Edward would neglect his duty as King in favour of his personal feelings.[39] Mrs. Simpson had been presented formally to both King George V and Queen Mary at court,[40] but Queen Mary later refused to meet her either in public or privately.[41] Queen Mary saw it as her duty to provide moral support for her second son, the reserved and stammering Prince Albert, Duke of York, who ascended the throne in Edward's place as King George VI. She even attended the new King and Queen's coronation, the first dowager queen ever to do so.[42] Edward’s abdication did not lessen her love for him as her son, but she never wavered in her disapproval of the damage she believed had been done to the Crown.[15][43] A constitutional crisis is a severe breakdown in the smooth operation of government. ...

During World War II, George VI wished his mother to be evacuated from London. Although she was reluctant, she decided to live at Badminton House with her niece, Mary Somerset, Duchess of Beaufort, the daughter of her brother Adolphus, Lord Cambridge.[45] Her personal belongings were transported from London in seventy pieces of luggage. Her household, which comprised fifty-five servants, occupied most of the house, except for the Duke and Duchess's private suites, for the next seven years. The only people to complain about the arrangements were the royal servants, who found the house too small,[46] though Queen Mary annoyed her niece by having the ancient ivy torn from the walls, considering it unattractive and a hazard. From Badminton, she supported the war effort by visiting troops and factories, and directing the gathering of scrap materials; she was known to offer lifts to soldiers she spotted on the roads.[47] In 1942, her youngest surviving son, Prince George, Duke of Kent, was killed in an air crash while on active service.

Queen Mary was an eager collector of objects and pictures with a Royal connection.[48] She paid above-market estimates when purchasing jewels from the estate of Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna[49] and paid almost three times the estimate when buying the family's Cambridge Emeralds from Lady Kilmorey, mistress of her late brother Prince Francis.[50] In 1924, the famous architect Sir Edwin Lutyens created Queen Mary's Dolls' House for her collection of miniature pieces.[51] Indeed, she has sometimes been criticised for her aggressive acquisition of objets d'art for the Royal Collection. On several occasions, she would express to hosts, or others, that she admired something they had in their possession, in the expectation that the owner would be willing to donate it.[52] Her extensive knowledge of, and research into, the Royal Collection helped in identifying artifacts and artwork that had gone astray over the years.[53] The Royal Family had loaned out many objects to British friends over previous generations. Once she had identified unreturned items through old inventories, she would write to the holders to request them back.[54] Maria Feodorovna, born Princess Dagmar of Denmark (November 26, 1847–October 13, 1928) was Empress Consort of Russia. ...
