Ok so it's not the best quality pic, but I love this photo of Queen Mary 😊 Mary of Teck (b. 26 May 1867 – d. 24 March 1953) was Queen consort of the United Kingdom & the British Dominions & Empress consort of India as the wife of King George V. Some interesting facts; She had eight fornames - Victoria, Mary, Augusta, Louise, Olga, Pauline, Claudine & Agnes She was born on 26 May 1867 at Kensington Palace, , in the same room where Queen Victoria, her first cousin once removed, was born 48 years earlier At the age of 24, she was betrothed to her second cousin once removed Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, but six weeks after the announcement of the engagement, he died unexpectedly during an influenza pandemic. The following year, she became engaged to Albert Victor's only surviving brother, George, who subsequently became king. Before her husband's accession, she was successively Duchess of York, Duchess of Cornwall, & Princess of Wales. .
