Well, her mother wasn't Scottish either, was she? Nor were her
But that whole mythology of the queen mum (always followed by "god bless 'er) was very useful propaganda for the "Sunday Post" type of thing, and useful in trying to make Scots feel they were somehow part of it all. Actually, had I been a coal mine worker in the industry that gave great wealth to that family, I really would not enjoy this idiotic kow-towing to royalty. Oh wait, I still don't.
All a nonsense, of course. I suppose the "Sunday Post" still exists, but then there is thon nice prophecy from Tom Nairn ...
The day will come.
