If you're a royal family follower like us, then you've probably heard tales of how the queen mother, Mary of Teck, had a bit of a stony demeanor. Meanwhile, this reputation was only reinforced by Eileen Atkins's portrayal of the royal family member in The Crown.
However, there seems to be some new evidence that indicates Queen Mary wasn't as cold as we once thought. In a report made by The Telegraph, some secret letters were recently unearthed, which show a much more loving side to Queen Elizabeth's grandmother.
It turns out that Queen Mary had a very close relationship with her aide of 27 years, Lady Eva Dugdale. The women had a friendship that lasted for over five decades, and now, two of Dugdale's grandsons, Charlie and Jimmy Millard, discovered a collection of correspondence between the two that was written between 1907 and 1923.
