Alexandra and her sister were unique amongst the British royal princesses as they had direct lineage from both William IV and Queen Victoria. Alexandra worked as a nurse in WW1 and continued to do so after the armistice. Whilst working in London hospitals she was known incognito as "Nurse Marjory". In WW2 she was sister in charge of the casualty clearing hospital in London, a post she occupied throughout the Blitz. Her only child, Alastair, shown in this photograph, died unexpectedly whilst in Canada in 1943.
