Royal Visitors


Visit to Liner Queen Mary.


LONDON, May 25.

The King left Fort Belvedere by air for Southampton for the Royal Family's inspection of the liner the Queen Mary. Queen Mary, the Duke and Duchess of York, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, and Princess Elizabeth travelled by train.

Conducted by Captain Sir Edgar Britten, the commander of the liner, the King, Queen Mary, and the Royal party extensively toured the liner. The Queen devoted special attention to the kitchens, while Princess Elizabeth enjoyed the delights of the children's playroom, where she delightedly slid the chute. Later the King and his brothers inspected the engines, all of which were in motion. The visitors expressed their amazement at the lack of vibration.
