A birthday card from Prince George

This delightful drawing was sent to Fanny Kingsley on June 1875  several months after CK’s death. Its author was Prince George, second son  of Edward VII and who later became George V in 1910.  He wrote this card on his tenth birthday.

The card shows  the close relationship CK had with the Royal family which was possibly the reason why Alexandra,  the Queen Mother,  was at the top of the list of patrons of the 1919 Eversley pageant.
