    The telegram to the new Queen Elizabeth from her mother, the Dowager Queen and widow of George VI: "To Her Majesty The Queen, All my thoughts and prayers are with you, Mummie, Buckingham Palace." Her Majesty usually marks the anniversary of her accession privately, retiring from public view for the day at Sandringham every year to remember the passing of her father in the home where he died.
