Aronson, Theo - Princess Alice; Countess of Athlone
"She would have made a wonderful Queen - she certainly was a splendid princess" Princess Alice was the daughter of Queen Victoria's youngest son Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany. She grew up under the watchful eye of her grandmother and in 1904 married Prince Alexander of Teck, afterwards known as the Earl of Athlone, Queen Mary's brother. Renowned for her beauty, elegance and vivacity, she was for the remainder of her long life one of the most popular and energetic members of the Royal Family. In 1923 Lord Athlone was appointed Governor General of South Africa and his wife was at his side through some of the country's most turbulent years. In 1981 she died at the age of 97. Paperback herdruk, in Engels, 557 pagina's, afmeting 13x20 cm.
