One thought on “Prince of Wales Investiture, 1911

  1. The Prince of Wales looks terrified in these photos. But perhaps this was not really his idea. Even though he is the “star of the show”, his parents loom over him, particularly Queen Mary in her enormous hat! I think Prince Charles’ investiture was much more successful.
