Queen Mary was known for her ability to keep her feelings to herself, however, by 1952, she had already lost her son Prince John, her husband King George V, another son--Prince George, the Duke of Kent, and then, finally, "Bertie"--King George VI. By this point, she was also dying from cancer. This photo shows a rare glimpse into the enormous grief she must have been feeling.
