A Right Royal Revalation

I have been doing some research, as is my want into King George VI in preparation for a blog  and made an interesting discovery that astonished me exceedingly. As we know he married Lady  Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon daughter of the Earl and Countess of Strathmore and that she was a descendant of Robert the Bruce of Scotland and Henry VII of England but she was according to British Law a commoner.

And Prince Albert as he then was at the time of their marriage was considered to have made a modernizing gesture to the British Monarchy and people by marrying a commoner instead of a titled daughter from some royal house.

Until I came upon this I like many others believed that the daughter of an earl was not a commoner.
But it is a fact of British law.

I shall probably include this information in my blog, and I trust this will not offend Lady Brooks, An American Royal with whom I have enjoyed a pleasant acquaintance via her WordPress website and on Twitter over the last few weeks
