Quote of the Day

This quote is an excerpt from the forthcoming book, Counting One’s Blessings: The Selected Letters of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. It’s from a letter written to the Archbishop of Canterbury following the birth of Princess Margaret in September, 1930. It’s funny, but there’s also some wisdom to it…

My dear Archbishop…Daughter No 2 is really very nice, and I am glad to say that she has got large blue eyes and a will of iron, which is all the equipment that a lady needs! As long as she can disguise her will, & use her eyes, then all will be well…

Yours very sincerely
