Born on 4 August 1900 the youngest daughter of a Scottish earl, she married the second son of George V and became Duchess of York.  Then, quite unexpectedly, she found herself Queen Consort after the abdication of Edward VIII.
How she coped with this tremendous change in her life becoming an invaluable support to her husband, particularly during the abdication crisis and the Second World War and grooming her daughter Elizabeth to become Queen is a fascinating story.
Lavishly illustrated throughout, the photographs capture her peaceful childhood, the early years of her marriage, the magnificent splendor of State occasions, family weddings and christenings and the tranquility of her home at the Castle of Mey, Scotland.”
