Prince Charles would write his grandmother Elizabeth long missives from school, full of complaints, in the certainty that Queen Mother Elizabeth would sympathize with his terrible plight.

 Not everybody likes school to put it mildly . Charles I think was enabled by the Queen Mum to whine about "his lot." TOo bad George VI did not live longer to rein his wife in. I think she overdid the coddling to make Charles feel super self entitled and that's how he lived his life. There did not seem to be any ethical or moral training applied to Charles. It was "poor little Charles" and how he was the center of the Universe, with his granny. Most unfortunate IMO. She was just an enabler of Charles entitled behavior.

Elizabeth, Duchess of York was the one responsible for the choice of clergyman for the christening of Princess Elizabeth. The Archbishop of Canterbury would have been the normal choice. Elizabeth, Duchess of York opted for Cosmo Lang. She declared that since she and Prince Albert were the York family and Cosmo Lang was the Archbishop of York, he was a better option.

Her brother-in-law Edward VIII observed in widowhood Queen Elizabeth II's mother could have opted for The Dowager Queen Elizabeth. He observed that would have denied her the pleasure of being queen twice over. She became Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother.
