Happy Belated Birthday Mary of Teck

Happy belated birthday to my favorite deceased Royal, Her Majesty Queen Mary, the one-time Princess Mary of Teck, Duchess of York, Princess of Wales.  The consort of King George V, she was the mother of two kings--one brief and selfish (the Great Kerfuffler™, King Edward VIII) and one who led the empire through the Second World War (King George VI).  Queen Mary died just before her beloved granddaughter ascended the throne as Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
