It is interesting to note who received Civil List allocations in 1901 and 1910, following the deaths of Victoria and Edward VII, respectively.
The 1901 list included separate appanages for the Prince and Princess of Wales, as well as the Empress Friedrich (who died in August 1901), Princess Christian, Princess Louise, Duchess of Argyll, the Duke of Connaught, the Duchess of Edinburgh, the Duchess of Albany, Princess Henry of Battenberg, the Duke of Cambridge, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and the daughters of Edward VII. These appanages were not a part of the actual Civil List, but were separate provisions.
Queen Mary and Grand Duchess Augusta maintained a correspondence up until Augusta's death in December 1916. Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden was the intermediary for the two women.
The 1910 list showed only a few changes. The Prince and Princess of Wales were now King George V and Queen Mary. Empress Friedrich and the Duke of Cambridge were no longer alive. Queen Alexandra was added to the 1910 list, as the widow of King Edward VII.
The Duchesses of Edinburgh and Albany were widows of sons of Queen Victoria.
The Duchess of Albany received £6000 a year until her death. However, the Duchess of Edinburgh and the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (Princess Augusta of Cambridge) stopped receiving their annual payments after 1914 due to living in Germany. The Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz never forgot that she was a British princess by birth, and she remained close to her British relatives, including her niece, Queen Mary. The Duchess of Edinburgh, who was also the Dowager Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, had no real ties to Britain.
Neither woman was officially removed as a member of the British royal family, despite the loss of their appanages.
