Quote: Queen Mary


"I do not think you have ever realised the shock, which the attitude you took up caused your family and the whole nation. It seemed inconceivable to those who had made such sacrifices during the war that you, as their King, refused a lesser sacrifice."

Mary (1867-1953) (formerly Queen Mary when her husband George V was king),  in a letter to her son, the Duke of Windsor, formerly Edward VIII, July 1938.
