Re: Royal Family Order of George V, 1911 - Size 3: The King Grand-Daughters
I will have to look into the bracelets, as it is an area od research I am not up on.
Thanks for the feedback and reply.
Thanks DavoST, this is great news. Any thoughts anyone on the bracelets worn by the late QEQM and her daughter Princess Margaret the Countess of Snowdon in the pictures provided.
I am sure the bracelet worn by the late QEQM on her left wrist looks like a peice turned into a choker or was it also on her wrist, i cant remember now but it was worn by Diana PoW at a past Opening of Parliament.
I had queried about the peice which looked like a large flower with diamonds featured on Diana PoW and someone replied that they felt it may have been a borrowed piece.
The King's two grand-daughters, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret were presented the order in the silver jubilee year, 1935.
Here the young princesses wear the Royal Family Orders of their father and grand-father at the 1937 Coronation
HM Queen Elizabeth wearing her father and grand-father's orders, Canberra, 1954
HRH Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, wearing the CI, and three royal family orders. Note the differences between thr size 1 of EII, size 2 of GVI and size three of GV
The order was made by Garrard's in four sizes, and was distributed more widely than his father's.
