Royal children send toys to the miners' families

December 15, 1928

Princess Elizabeth and her cousins, the Hon. George and Hon. Gerald Lascelles, are sending toys and clothing to the children of unemployed miners in Durham and Northumberland. The gifts from the Lascelles boys include toys and heavy shoes for the cold winter months.
The items and the letters were sent to Newcastle's Lord Mayor from the Duchess of York's private secretary and Princess Mary's lady-in-waiting.
