Excerpt from Queen Alexandra: A Biography
In these pages will be found mentioned only a small proportion Of the varied public duties performed in three reigns by Queen Alexandra. NO one has ever seen Her Majesty look bored, although many engagements must be wearisome from mere reiteration. The Queen has the art Of doing charming little acts Of kindness which make an immediate impression. And she is not afraid to make innovations. On 22nd March I9I6 she autographed numbers Of programmes at the entertainment given by King George and Queen Mary at the Riding School, Buckingham Palace, to wounded soldiers. After one of the guests had summoned up enough courage to ask Queen Alexandra to autograph his programme, Her Majesty was kept busy responding to many similar requests.
Although the Queen is ready to adopt new ideas and enjoy new forms Of amusement - such as Kinematography, which has given her much pleasure from the days of its first introduction - She is very loyal to the past. Many a time She has referred to Childhood's years in Denmark.
