The Quest for Queen Mary

  • This event has passed.

Hugo Vickers

Saturday 12th October 17:00 - 18:00 | Royal Yacht Squadron

Queen Mary, grandmother of the present Queen, died at Marlborough House in 1953. Two years later James Pope-Hennessy was invited to write her official biography. His first reaction was that in no way could he undertake such a project – but his brother persuaded him that it would be a fascinating opportunity to study royalty as ‘an endangered species, and this was an occasion to establish, through close inspection of a single life, the nature of the phenomenon’.
