Princess Patricia of Connaught was deeply loved by the British people for her natural ways. King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra profoundly wanted a marriage with Grand Duke Michael of Russia. Very unusually the Princess, when she married Admiral Sir Alexander Ramsay fought to lose her title. The King reluctantly agreed on condition that she still remained head of Peeresses of the Realm. Theirs was to prove an exceptionally happy marriage of over 50 years and by the late 1950s, because of the couple's dignity, they remained very much en famille with the Royal Family.
From the collection of Lady Patricia Ramsay, daughter of the Duke of Connaught.
