I am sure Queen Mary (having always had a knack for souvenirs and similar stuff) would be following this thread passionately with her own special computer...

Let's join up, Nellie! (grin)

-- Look at the increasingly archaic spelling of "Enrol", not to mention "To-Day"! --

Queen Marie of Yugoslavia's (Mignon) royal signet ring. Recently exhibited in Oplenac. That looks like a hefty size Q/R (UK) or size 8.5 (US).

Imagen

"The ring of Queen Maria Karadjordjevic, part of the Karadjordjevic family’s valuable jewellry collection, was exhibited in the Foundation of King Peter I in Oplenac.

The golden ring was purchased from a private collectionar by the Municipality of Topola, following the initiative from the Foundation. The handing over ceremony took place in the King Peter’s Galery in Oplenac.

Maria of Romania (6 January 1900 - 22 June 1961) was queen consort to King Alexander I of Yugoslavia. Her titles included HM Queen Maria of Yugoslavia (1929-1945), HM The Queen of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes (1922-1929) and HRH Princess Maria of Romania (1900-1922). She was born in Gotha, Thuringia in Germany, during the reign of her maternal grandfather Duke Alfred of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and during the Romanian reign of her granduncle King Carol I. She was known as "Mignon" in the family to distinguish her from her mother, Princess Marie, a daughter of Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, a son of Queen Victoria. Her maternal great-grandfather was Tsar Alexander II of Russia. Marie's father was Crown Prince Ferdinand of Romania.

She married King Alexander I of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes on 8 June 1922, and raised three sons. Following the assassination of King Alexander in Marseilles in 1934, she became Queen Mother of Yugoslavia and her oldest son became Peter II of Yugoslavia, the last Yugoslav king.

Maria was well educated, spoke several languages fluently and enjoyed painting and sculpting. [edit: I once saw a photo of Mignon sculpting in her studio in the Dalmatian Coast. I loved it! What talent, like all of Queen Victoria's female descendants.]

She also drove a car by herself, which was very unusual at the time. Well loved and respected by the people of Yugoslavia, she continues to be well thought of and remains, in the eyes of the Serbian people, one of the greatest humanitarian patron's of the Balkan region. Streets are named in her memory, such as "Ulica kraljice Marije" or "Queen Marija Street", and numerous schools and other organizations still carry her name.

Marie died in exile in London on 22 June 1961 and is interred at the Royal Burial Ground at Frogmore, which adjoins Windsor Castle."

A heads up to forum members, I'm planning a photo thread on Mignon of Yugoslavia, in the Spanish section. I hope that it'll be the most complete of any royal forum on the 'net.

Mignon deserves it!
:DD

The future Queen of Spain, then Princess Sophie of Greece, visiting Anaheim's Disneyland (alongside star Mouseketeer, Annette Funicello)!

That's more like it. Princess Aiko of Japan, with doting parents, showing grown-ups how it's done.

 LOL! Hi Cheque. (grin)

The royal lady at the back, who looks like she'd rather be seated in a dentist's chair than in a teacup ride at Disney, is Margrethe (Margarita) of Denmark, the future chain-smoking Queen. The "horse tooth"-ed one is Benedikte, her sister.

Not sure who the older lady is. I'm guessing her lady-in-waiting?

P.S.: Here's "Benny" today, still showing her horsey smile. She's wearing very nice Tanzanite earrings! (Tanzanite costs a fortune for what you get).

Wow, she looks so...common.

Cheque, you're right! I owe you an apology! Thanks, Pablo. :thumbup:

Given that the photo caption is wrong, I also think they got the place where the Scandinavian princesses are at, wrong -- that's surely Tivoli Park in Copenhagen, not the House of Mouse.

Pablo, isn't that Flemming Rosenborg in the background? Lighting a ciggie, I think.
