Fact of the Day: Royal Mother

The battles of World War II had caused much danger for those living in the United Kingdom. There was an idea to evacuate most of the royal family including the future Elizabeth II to Canada, but they stayed. King George VI's Queen said "The children won't go without me. I won't leave the King. And the King will never leave." about the subject.

A more pertinent fact is that Lizzie, the Queen Mum, was married to George VI.
But she lived in the era of the first George.
