    King George V and Queen Mary with granddaughter Princess Elizabeth of York (later Queen Elizabeth II). George V has been characterized by biographers as an emotionally remote father yet there’s ample evidence to the contrary. While the King’s letters to his sons are peppered with admonitions, they also glow with involvement and affection, and his interactions with his beloved granddaughter Elizabeth were joyful.He loved to play with her and she called him “Grandpapa England”
