’ From Lilibet to Queen
Elizabeth's Regal Training
Begun by Stern Grandmother
By James F. King
Associated Press Staff Writer
LONDON, May 26. —Little
Princess Elizabeth and her Uncle
David were pals.
It was an exciting event for
Lilibet when the dashing Prince

house in Piccadilly, as he fre-
I quently did in those carefree
Such visits were a welcome
escape from the regime of her
grandmother. Queen Mary, who
believed Elizabeth’s training
should begin early even though
the possibility she ever would
be queen seemed remote at the
A high-brow concert in Albert
Hall can be pretty dull for a
seven-year-old girl, even a
princess. And when Lilibet be

seat the old queen sternly sug
gested that it was time to go
“Oh. no, Granny.” came the
childish protest. “We can’t leave
before the end. Think of the
people outside waiting to see us.”
Queen Mary, who would stand
for no nonsense, ordered her
lady-in-waiting to whisk Lilibet
home —and by the back door.
Turning Point in Education.
Just before Elizabeth’s 10th
birthday came the first real turn
ing point, both in her education
and in the outlook of those guid
ing her.
King George V. whom Eliza
beth called “Grandpapa Eng
land,” died.
The little princess broke into
fits of weeping on encountering
this first crisis of her life. Then
other change came fast—too fast
for a little girl not yet 10 to un
The casual visits of Uncle
David, now King Edward VIII,
became less and less frequent,
and finally stopped altogether.
There was a tenseness around
Buckingham Palace which was
noticeable even to a child.
Finally, on December 10. 1936,
not quite a year after George V’s
death, she and her sister. Prin
cess Margaret, were told they

the Piccadilly house into the
“What, forever and ever?” ex
claimed Lilibet in wonderment.
Edward had abdicated for the
love of the American divorcee,
Wallis Warfield Simpson. His
blue-eyed niece was now next in
;he direct line of succession, and
destined to be Britain’s fifth
reigning queen.
Saw Her Father Crowned.
The princesses were given an
explanation of how their uncle
was going away for a long time,
perhaps forever. Lilibet was not
to see her Uncle David until she
was a poised, grown up girl.
She has never lost her affec
tion for him. Now as queen, she
has eased the way for the return
of the Duke of Windsor to the
good graces of the royal family’s
court. On his rare visits to Eng
land he usually calls at Buck
ingham Palace. But the Duke
and his wife, Wally, will not be
at the coronation next Tuesday.
It would be against constitu
tional usage for a sovereign or
former sovereign of any state
to attend the coronation of a
king or queen of England, he
has explained.
Elizabeth was only 10 at the

War II were shortening. It was

and the Spanish civil war
The coronation of Elizabeth’s
father as George VI saw her
and her sister Margaret taking
a full part in purple robes and
coronets. Lilibet, who had be
come a darling of the British
people, behaved with amazing
dignity during the long cere
mony in Westminster Abbey,
and even took it upon herself
to see that Margaret behaved
Educated by Tutors.
The education of Lilibet went
on under private tutors with a
new sense of direction now. Sir
Henry Marten, vice provost of
Eton, the chief tutor, reported
his royal protege was systematic
rather than brilliant, but “con
siderate, responsive, ready to be
interested or amused.”
Elizabeth \is perhaps the first
British sovereign to study Amer
ican history. Os course there
was emphasis on constitutional
history and the empire, the
French and German languages,
literature, art and dancing.
She learned to play the piano
well enough to tackle Beethoven,
Chopin and Schumann com
petently, She enjoyed American
popular music, particularly the
records of Bing Crosby and the
Andrews sisters.
She read may of the novels of
Somerset Maugham, Conan
Doyle, P. G. Wodehouse and
Ernest Hemingway.
She liked games and learned
to swim and shoot.
World War II brought impor
tant changes in the life of the
princess, and in the empire. She
was 13 when the war broke out
—old enough to get a lasting
impression of the bombings and
hurried scampering* to a bomb
Broadcast at Age 14.
Many British families sent
their children to the United
States or Canada to escape the
blitz. There were suggestions the
royal family do likewise. Their
mother would not hear of it,
explaining emphatically:
‘"they could not go without
me, and I would not go without
the king.”
But the princesses were evac
uated to Birkhall, near Balmoral
Castle in Scotland, and then to
Windsor Castle where the dan
ger from bombs was not so great.
Elizabeth’s growing respon
sibility was manifested before
her 14th birthday in a broadcast
to the children of the dominions
and the empire.
“I can truthfully say to you
that we children at home are full
of cheerfulness and courage. We
are trying to do all we can to
help our sailors, soldiers and air
men, and we are trying to bear
our share of the danger and sad
ness of war,” she said.
Elizabeth joined the Girl
Guides (Scouts) at Windsor and
had difficulty passing a test for
her first-class badge. She ex
plained to guides captain that,

Romulo Announces Parly,
Lopez His Running Male
By lh« Associated Press
MANILA, May 26.—A diplo
mat turned politician and an ag
gressive Communist Huk buster,
both of whom bolted President
Elpidio Quirino’s Liberal Party,
will run against their former
boss in the Philippines’ Novem
ber election.
Carlos Romulo, former Ambas
sador to the United States and
former delegate to the United
Nations today announced for
mation of the Democratic Liberal
Party with himself as the stand
ardbearer in the November 10
Popular Ramon Magsaysay,
former Defense Secretary who
broke with Mr. Quirino last Feb
ruary, heads the opposition
Nacionalista Party ticket and
has started his campaign.
Vice President Fernando Lo
pez, who joined some 200 Rom
ulo supporters in storming out
of Sunday’s Liberal Party nom
inating convention, will be Mr.
Romulo’s running mate.
Treasury Aide Sworn In

tered the oath of office to Miss
Catherine B. Cleary as assistant
Treasurer of the United States.
Miss Cleary formerly was a trust
officer of the First Wisconsin
Trust Co. in Milwaukee.
“the cook, needlewoman and
child nurse are holding me up a
bit but I hope to pass soon.”
She added that “I’m afraid I
have already forgotten how to
sweep a room now.”
Elizabeth and Margaret knitted
for the armed forces, dug victory
gardens, and set aside a shilling
a week from their allowance to
buy war bonds.
They took part in the annual
Christmas plays at Windsor.
The sisters were a hit in a num
ber from “This Is the Army.”
Elizabeth got her initiation as
a hostess during these war years.
Young mil tary officers, some
times Amer cans stationed in the
area, were often invited to lunch
with the princesses.
Reaching 16, Lilibet registered
for nation *1 service and was
officially introduced to the armed
forces with an honorary appoint
ment as colonel of the Grenadier
Guards. Foi months she pestered
her parents about joining the
ATS (British equivalent of the
WACS) in order to “do her bit.”
There was here a spark of the
first Cueen Elizabeth who cen
turies before rode bareheaded
among her soldiers at Tilbury
and ra lied them to face the im
pendin; invasion by the Spanish
armada witih the cry, “I myself
will take up arms. I myself will
be your general.”
King George and the cabinet
felt that Lilibet’s training for
queen should not be interrupted
by such service and even issued
an official announcement to that
effect. But in the end the prin
cess had her way.
Learned to Drive a Truck.
The ATS transportation corps
carries this entry: “No. 230873
second subaltern 'lieutenant)
Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Wind
sor; age, 18; eyes, blue; hair,
brown: height. 5 feet, 7 inches.”
In the ATS Elizabeth under
went rough training in overalls,
and learned to tear down and
grease a motor and drive a truck.
One week there were spit-and
polish preparations for an in
spection by ranking visitors, who
turned out to be the King and
“I have never seen a royal
visit from the inside before,” she
told her parents. “I didn’t know
so much preparation went into it.”
Perhaps Lilibet was thinking
of another royal visit she made
with her parents to the Royal
Naval College at Dartmouth.
There a young blond cadet had
caught the eye of the 14-year
old princess. He corresponded
with her through the war.
It was the beginning of a ro
mance that blossomed into the
marriage of the Princess and the
dashing naval officer, Prince
Philip of Greece.

and the handsome sailor.
