Mary of Teck is the queen consort of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions, spouse of King George V and the mother of Edward, Prince of Wales (the future Edward VIII) and Prince Albert, Duke of York (the future George VI).
Born Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes, her father was the Duke of Teck and her mother was Princess Adelaide of Cambridge, a granddaughter of King George III.
Known as May within the family, she became engaged to the elder son of the future King Edward VII, Albert, Victor Duke of Clarence. But he died of pneumonia six weeks after the engagement was announced. A year later she became engaged to her late fiance's younger brother George. She would become Duchess of York and then Princess of Wales before her husband was crowned King George V. She would go on to bear him a daughter and five sons.
The Lady Rose MacClare is presented to The Queen (and The King) during a presentation court in the 1923 London Season.
