Margaret Greville's will

January 7, 1943

Princess Margaret Rose, 12, has inherited £20,000 from the estate of Mrs. Ronald Greville, according to the New York Times. 

Mrs. Greville left an estate of £1,564,000.  The estate tax of £830,000 has already been paid.

Mrs. Greville also left "with my loving thoughts" all of her jewels to Queen Elizabeth and £12,500 to former Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain.  The latter bequest was "with deep affection in memory of the great kindness and affection which her Her Majesty showed me."

The Greville home, Polesden Lacey, near Dorking, has been left as a national trust, "in my memory of my father."

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth spent a part of their honeymoon at Polesden Lacy in 1923.
