Letters from Harewood

I visited Harewood House near Leeds today to research a forthcoming workshop based at the grand house. We have been looking at examples of monograms and handwriting belonging to Princess Mary, Princess Royal and Countess of Harewood (1897 – 1965), who made Harewood her home for 36 years. The Princess's monogram can be found on many of her personal belongings and also in the rooms she used at Harewood. It will be lovely to teach a workshop responding to such interesting personal artefacts and doubly so because of my research into the Prince's Shirt.
