1935: Lady Elizabeth, the Duchess of York, is followed by her daughters, the 9-year-old Princess Elizabeth, right, the future Queen Elizabeth II, and 5-year-old Princess Margaret, arriving at London's Olympia for the Royal Tournament.
Young Elizabeth, a strong swimmer. The girls were always anxious to do what other children did. Here, swimming lessons at the Bath Club. For the first trip, the nanny made preparations of such magnitude, they might have been going to a desert island. There were large bath towels, dusting powder, combs and brushes, even a small box of chocolates. The Duke (their father), often came to watch.
