Mary's descendants are the Lascelles. Are they still close to the BRF? Do they interact much with William's generation or are they getting to be too removed?  And where does ``Tommy'' Lascelles fit into the story? Wasn't he the ultimate stiff upper-lip guy who put the kibosh on Princess Margaret's marriage to Peter Townsend? 

Not close at all.  George and Gerald were older than their first cousins (the first batch of grandchildren), and their divorces really didn't help.

In 1918 Princess Mary was stationed at the Alexandra Ward at Great Ormond Street. 
She wanted to be treated exactly the same as other trainees. No job was off limits.

Queen Mary wrote of the proposal of Henry, Viscount Lascelles to Princess Mary:   
"Mary came to my room to announce to me her engagement to Lord Lascelles! We then told G. (King George V) and then gave Harry L. our blessing."
