Little princess attends Grandma's birthday

May 26, 1926

Little Princess Elizabeth, the one-month old infant daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York, was one of the guests at a Buckingham Palace luncheon to celebrate Queen Mary 59th birthday today, according to the New York Times.
The baby Princess' nurse "carried her charge to the palace gate and showed her to a number of women and girls gathered there."
The Duke of York is the second son of King George VI and Queen Mary. He is second in line to the throne after the Prince of Wales, who is unmarried.
Queen Mary "received many presents of flowers and telegrams." Throughout the city today "flags were hoisted and bells were rung in her honor."
