EDITORS COMMENTS
This enchanting photograph captures a heartwarming moment from the Not Forgotten Tea Party held at Buckingham Palace in 1937. The event, organized by the Queen, brought together hospitalized ex-Servicemen for an afternoon of relaxation and camaraderie. Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, both young and full of energy, graciously attended the gathering held at the Royal Riding School. In this delightful image, Princess Margaret, dressed in a charming costume, brandishes a large knife over some beautifully iced cakes. The sisters were responsible for cutting and serving the treats to the grateful soldiers, who no doubt appreciated the thoughtful gesture. The tea party was a small yet significant way for the royal family to acknowledge and honor the sacrifices made by these brave men during their time in service. The 1930s were a time of change and uncertainty, with the world recovering from the Great Depression and the looming threat of war. Amidst these challenges, the Not Forgotten Tea Party served as a reminder of the enduring spirit of community and compassion. This photograph is a poignant reminder of a bygone era, one where the simple act of sharing a cup of tea and a slice of cake could bring joy and comfort to those in need.
