Grandmother to Queen Elizabeth II, she was best known for having an hourglass waist and being a gold digging hussy.
At the age of 24, she was betrothed to her second cousin once removed Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence and Avondale, the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, but six weeks after the announcement of the engagement, he died unexpectedly during an influenza pandemic. But that didn't stop Mary, now nicknamed "May." She simply married his brother.
I guess when it comes to sex, she should've been nicknamed "Certain," not "May"
She had six children: Edward, Albert, Mary, Henry, George, and John..
Her last child John, was an epileptic so she hid him away till she could arrange a solution, which in this case was his accidental death.
All her children were mean and May didn't care so long as her hourglass figure held up. She wanted to take in the deposed Russian monarch and family but was refused permission, which she thought meant the British wanted the same for her.
When her husband King George V became ill with cancer she cried, not for him, but for the fact she would soon, no longer be queen.
Her son Edward came to the throne and wanted to marry a hussy, instead of being bonded by being like kindred spirits, she said, "How could he prefer THAT over being king of England." The two rarely spoke after his abdication.
Her son Albert became King George VI but she belittled him for having only girls, saying 'He might as well be shooting blanks"
In 1942 her son George was killed in WWII, she would comment, "Thank God I had one respectable child, too bad he was a lousy soldier,"
In 1952, King George VI died, the third of Queen Mary's children to predecease her. She said ""I have lost three sons through death, and I hope to say farewell to the rest of my children."
Mary died on 24 March 1953 in her sleep at the age of 85, ten weeks before her granddaughter's coronation. Some say Princess Margaret or Elizabeth had a hand in her death, but no one liked her so no one bothered to find out.
