Mustn't forget George, 7th Earl of Harewood - the Queen's first cousin.  He made music his career.

Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III reigned from 1637 until 1657. He was a composer. Some of his compositions survive in manuscripts: masses, motets, hymns and other sacred music.

Interesting, that is definitely not circa 1935. Her dress is early 1920s at the very latest, but her hairstyle seems to be around 1917 or even earlier. I'm not a year-by-year expert in that decade, but the round-headed effect of the hairstyles is pretty distinctive.

I agree, even taking into consideration that they royals used to be extremely traditional, if not to say old-fashioned esp. Queen Mary, the fashion is def. not pre-WWII but much earlier. Plus in 1935 the princess royal would have been pushing 40 and there is no way the woman in the photo is that old. Back in those days, 38 was considered really "mature" and a woman would not wear this kind of dress.
And last but not least: the shoes!

The shoes are one of many pointers! And there's a difference between being a season or two behind the times, and being dressed in the tip-top of fashion from two decades previously, hair included.

Queen Mary was a bit of an exception (I believe I've read that George V really liked her in the older styles, so she kept them on??) but that was also not until she was really even past middle age. Many older women did not adopt the new extremes of fashion in the late 1920s.

Didn't he compose music as well?
