Mary Victoria of Teck, Consort of King George V, whom she married in 1893 when he was Duke of York. She had earlier been engaged to his elder brother the Duke of Clarence who died suddenly in 1892. Inherently shy, she pursued her public work with energy and self-discipline, and in later life could appear formidable and austere. She was the first Queen to visit the shops.
