We see her delight in her beloved daughters and her real anguish when she and her husband realized that he would become King because his brother Edward VIII was determined to abdicate.‘The warm personality and humour of the late, much-loved Queen Mother shines through in her letters, as does her affection for all, whether below or above stairs’ Scotsman‘Recaptures her effervescent charm, and the simple fact that she was a good egg’ Spectator‘How one warms to her!’ Evening Standard
