    Princess Mary was born at Kensington Palace in London on 26 May 1867. Her mother was Princess Mary Adelaide, a daughter of Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge, and a granddaughter of King George III and first cousin of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom. Her father was Francis, Duke of Teck. Due to her parent's financial troubles, Princess Mary spent much of her early life abroad in order to economize, the Tecks returned to London in 1883, living at White Lodge in Richmond Park.

    In 1891, Princess Mary, who was liked by Queen Victoria, became engaged to her double second cousin once removed Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, the eldest son of Prince Albert Edward, Prince of Wales. Prince Albert Victor was the heir to the throne after his father, bringing Princess Mary and her family to the senior end of the Royal Family. However, a few weeks before the wedding, Prince Albert Victor died of influenza. Nevertheless, Queen Victoria still favored Mary as a royal bride and therefore arranged for her to marry Albert Victor's brother, Prince George, created Duke of York. They were married at St. James's Palace, London, on 6 July 1893. Princess Mary was devoted to her children and to her public duties. She left her children in the care of a nanny, Charlotte "Lalla" Bill, and taught her children history and music. With her public duties, she was equally devoted, becoming Patron of a number of charities. When her father-in-law became King Edward VII,...

    In 1936, King George V died. His death was shortened by an injection of morphine and cocaine, administered by his doctor. Queen Mary supported her son, now King Edward VIII, during his reign. In December, however, the King abdicated the throne because he wished to marry a divorced American commoner, Wallis Simpsonwho had to be the nazi supervisor. This put his brother, Prince Albert, Duke of York, in his place as King George VI. King George VI was shy and was at first reluctant to take on his new duties and responsibilities. Queen Mary and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, supported him in his new role. The former King Edward VIII became the Duke of Windsor, went to live in Paris France, and had a cool relationship with his family in England. No member of the family attended his wedding to Wallis in 1937, and she was never received by Queen Mary .

    During the Second World War, Queen Mary lived at Badminton House, owned by her niece's husband, the Duke of Beaufort. She continued her duties and supported the war effort. Following the war, she returned to her pre-war home, Marlborough House. She continued her public duties in old age, surviving to see her granddaughter, Elizabeth, ascend the throne as Queen Elizabeth II. After suffering from lung cancer (described publicly as "gastric problems"), Queen Mary died of the disease at Marlborough House on 24 March 1953. She lay in state at Westminster Hall before being buried beside her husband at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. She survived her husband by 17 years and outlive three of her children, Prince John of the United Kingdom and Prince George Duke of Kent and King George VI.

    Princess Vic­to­ria Mary ("May") of Teck was born on 26 May 1867 at Kens­ing­ton Palace, Lon­don, in the same room where Queen Vic­to­ria, her first cousin once re­moved, was born 48 years ear­lier. Queen Vic­to­ria came to visit the baby, writ­ing that she was "a very fine one, with pretty lit­tle fea­tures and a quan­tity of hair". May would be­come the first British queen con­sort born in Britain since Cather­ine Parr. Her fa­ther was Prince Fran­cis, Duke of Teck, the son of Duke Alexan­der of Würt­tem­berg by his mor­ga­natic wife, Count­ess Clau­dine Rhédey von Kis-Rhéde (cre­ated Count­ess von Ho­hen­stein in the Aus­trian Em­pire). Her mother was Princess Mary Ade­laide of Cam­bridge, a grand­daugh­ter of King George III and the third child and younger daugh­ter of Prince Adol­phus, Duke of Cam­bridge, and Princess Au­gusta of Hesse-Kas­sel. She was bap­tised in the Chapel Royal of Kens­ing­ton Palace on 27 July 1867 by Charles Thomas Lon­g­ley, Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury.F...

    In 1886, May was a debu­tante in her first sea­son and in­tro­duced at court. Her sta­tus as the only un­mar­ried British princess who was not de­scended from Queen Vic­to­ria made her a suit­able can­di­date for the royal fam­ily's most el­i­gi­ble bach­e­lor, Prince Al­bert Vic­tor, Duke of Clarence and Avon­dale, her sec­ond cousin once re­moved and the el­dest son of the Prince of Wales. In De­cem­ber 1891, May and Al­bert Vic­tor were engaged. 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. How­ever, Al­bert Vic­tor died six weeks later, in a re­cur­rence of the world­wide 1889–90 in­fluenza pan­demic,be­fore the date was fixed for their wedding. Al­bert Vic­tor's brother, Prince George, Duke of York, now sec­ond in line to the throne, ev­i­dently be­came close to May dur­ing their shared pe­riod of mourn­ing, and Queen Vic­to­ria still favoured May as a suit­able can­di­date to m...

    May mar­ried Prince George, Duke of York, in Lon­don on 6 July 1893 at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace. The new Duke and Duchess of York lived in York Cot­tage on the San­dring­ham Es­tate in Nor­folk, and in apart­ments in St James's Palace. York Cot­tage was a mod­est house for roy­alty, but it was a favourite of George, who liked a rel­a­tively sim­ple life. They had six chil­dren: Ed­ward, Al­bert, Mary, Henry, George, and John. The chil­dren were put into the care of a nanny, as was usual in up­per-class fam­i­lies at the time. The first nanny was dis­missed for in­so­lence and the sec­ond for abus­ing the chil­dren. This sec­ond woman, anx­ious to sug­gest that the chil­dren pre­ferred her to any­one else, would pinch Ed­ward and Al­bert when­ever they were about to be pre­sented to their par­ents so that they would start cry­ing and be speed­ily re­turned to her. On dis­cov­ery, she was re­placed by her ef­fec­tive and much-loved as­sis­tant, Char­lotte Bill. Some­times,...

    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 Würt­tem­bergin 1904. The fol­low­ing year, she gave birth to her last child, John. It was a dif­fi­cult labour, and al­though she re­cov­ered quickly, her new­born son suf­fered res­pi­ra­tory problems. 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. 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. Only...

    On 6 May 1910, Ed­ward VII died. Mary's hus­band as­cended the throne and she be­came queen con­sort. When her hus­band asked her to drop one of her two of­fi­cial names, Vic­to­ria Mary, she chose to be called Mary, pre­fer­ring not to be known by the same style as her hus­band's grand­mother, Queen Victoria. 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 Dur­barheld on 12 De­cem­ber 1911, and toured the sub-con­ti­nent as Em­peror and Em­press of India, re­turn­ing to Britain in February. The be­gin­ning of Mary's pe­riod as con­sort brought her into con­flict with her mother-in-law, Queen Alexan­dra. Al­though the two 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. Dur­ing the Fir...

    George V died on 20 Jan­u­ary 1936, after his physi­cian, Lord Daw­son of Penn, gave him an in­jec­tion of mor­phine and co­caine that may have has­tened his death. Queen Mary's el­dest son as­cended the throne as Ed­ward VIII. She was now the queen mother, though she did not use that style, and was in­stead known as Her Majesty Queen Mary. Within the year, Ed­ward caused a con­sti­tu­tional cri­sis by an­nounc­ing his de­sire to marry his twice-di­vorced Amer­i­can mis­tress, Wal­lis Simp­son. Mary dis­ap­proved of di­vorce, which was against the teach­ing of the An­gli­can church, and thought Simp­son wholly un­suit­able to be 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 Simp­son, Ed­ward ab­di­cated. Though loyal and sup­port­ive of her son, Mary could not com­pre­hend why Ed­ward would ne­glect his royal du­ties in favour of his...

    In 1952, King George VI died, the third of Queen Mary's chil­dren to pre­de­cease her; her el­dest grand­daugh­ter, Princess Eliz­a­beth, as­cended the throne as Queen Eliz­a­beth II. The death of a third child pro­foundly af­fected her. Mary re­marked to Princess Marie Louise: "I have lost three sons through death, but I have never been priv­i­leged to be there to say a last farewell to them." Mary died on 24 March 1953 in her sleep at the age of 85, ten weeks be­fore her grand­daugh­ter's coro­na­tion. Mary let it be known that, in the event of her death, the coro­na­tion was not to be post­poned. Her re­mains lay in state at West­min­ster Hall, where large num­bers of mourn­ers filed past her cof­fin. She is buried be­side her hus­band in the nave of St George's Chapel, Wind­sor Cas­tle.

    Sir Henry "Chips" Chan­nonwrote that she was "above pol­i­tics ... mag­nif­i­cent, hu­mor­ous, worldly, in fact nearly sub­lime, though cold and hard. But what a grand Queen."

    The wedding of Prince George, Duke of York, and Princess Mary of Teck took place on 6 July 1893 at the Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace in London.

    Mary of Teck's engagement to Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, eldest son of the Prince of Wales, ended after the duke's death on 14 January 1892. Even before the duke's death, his grandmother Queen Victoria had wanted to ensure the succession, and consequently desired that his younger brother and Prince George marry either Princess Marie or Princess Victoria Melita of Edinburgh. For his part, George was fond of his cousins, but did not want to marry early; "I still think marr

    The Socialist League, an anarchist group, campaigned against the cost of the wedding, putting up posters which stated: "The London Anarchists will hold an indignation meeting Sunday, July 2nd, in Hyde Park, at half-past-three, to protest against the waste of wealth upon these Royal Vermin, while the workers are dying of hunger and overwork. Fellow workers, prepare for the Revolution. Remember - He who would be free himself must strike the blow. Down with Flunkyism." Thomas Cantwell and Ernest Yo

  7. Regal Facts About Queen Mary Of Teck, The Mother Of Dynasties › people › facts-queen-mary-of-teck
    • Her Family Tree Was Twisted. Mary of Teck was born into a faded fairy tale. Although she entered the world in 1867 in the same room her cousin Queen Victoria, Mary’s bloodlines were decidedly on the shadowy side of the royal family.
    • Her Mother Was Messy. Mary’s mother and father weren’t just from the wrong pedigrees, they also had personal problems in their own right. Despite the fact that the Tecks were purse-poor, the elder Princess Mary was a notorious spender.
    • Her Family Disgraced Themselves. While the Teck coffers started to gather cobwebs, Princess Mary kept spending—until it came to a ruinous climax. In 1883, the Tecks had to take their young family and escape to the continent, fleeing from their debtors to try to live cheaply among kind-hearted relatives.
    • She Had A Volatile Childhood. Besides her ignominious family stock, Mary’s upbringing was bizarre in other ways. Although the Tecks were back in England by 1885, it still wasn’t a stable life.
