Description The Hon. Mrs Bowes-Lyon and her children
Details

Mrs Bowes-Lyon, formerly Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis, Lord Clinton's younger daughter and wife of John Bowes-Lyon, Lord Strathmore younger son and brother to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. She is pictured with her two eldest children, Anne (1917-1980) and Nerissa (1919-2014). Nerissa, along with another younger sister Katherine, who was born in July 1926, was mentally disabled. Both girls became residents of Earlswood Hospital in 1941 and were never seen in public. Controversy lingers over the family's involvement with them - they were both listed in Burke's Peerage as having died in 1963 and it was reported that none of the Bowes-Lyon family ever visited them, or attended their funerals.
