Goldsborough Hall's Royal History

Goldsborough Hall was home to HRH Princess Mary, the Queen's aunt, in the 1920s and was host to many other royals including King George V, Queen Mary, The Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of York. While at the hall, her two sons were born: Master George Lascelles was the first grandchild of Queen Mary and he was christened at St Mary's Church, Goldsborough, next door to Goldsborough Hall

George Hubert Lascelles, 7th Earl of Harewood; Hon. Gerald David Lascelles, children of Mary, the Princess Royal. They spent their childhood at Goldsborough Hall before moving to Harewood House.

And I think Viscount Lascelles is pictured far right. All these royals were visitors to Goldsborough Hall in the 1920s when Princess Mary and Viscount Lascelles lived there

This is the memorial to Henry Ulick Lascelles, 5th Earl of Harewood (1846-1929). He was the son of Henry Lascelles, 4th Earl of Harewood and Elizabeth, daughter of Ulick de Burgh, 1st Marquess of Clanricarde. He married in 1881 to Lady Florence Bridgeman, daughter of the 3rd Earl of Bradford. Their son Henry became the 6th Earl of Harewood (1882–1947) and married Princess Mary. As a child, Henry Ulick lived at Goldsborough Hall which was the house for the heirs-in-waiting for Harewood House.

Harewood House launched a new rose the 'Yorkshire Princess' in memory of HRH Princess Mary. Mary, of course, lived at Goldsborough Hall throughout the 1920s before her move to Harewood. It has been created by Dickson Nurseries Ltd and will also be part of a new planting scheme here at Goldsborough Hall
