Although promised that these will never be published in her name, they are, and Marion becomes an outcast from the royal family. Marion, or “Crawfie”, as the six-year-old future Queen Elizabeth II quickly named her, remained a loyal employee of the Royals for seventeen years. As governess to the young princesses Lilibet and Margaret, Crawford held a very privileged position within the royal household for many years before her reputation as a dedicated and loyal employee fell by the wayside following her exposé of life behind the palace walls.

Fern shook hands with Her Majesty to celebrate ITV’s 50 th anniversary and revealed that the Queen told her, “Anything 50 years old is worth celebrating. I for one, would like to think that Marion was influenced by her husband, the world he existed in was so far removed from Marion’s, there was a sense of jealously.Some years ago, I read a fabulous book ‘That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor’. in Britain, was the year of three kings – King George V, who died; King Edward VIII, who abdicated; and King George VI. Whilst none of Marion’s relationships come across as straightforward I felt gladdened by the bond which the author creates between Tommy (Sir Alan Lascelles) and Marion, with the prominent royal courtier acting like a father figure to the governess. I adored this book, I like anything historical and this of course gives you a glimpse into something we well never really know about unless we are amongst it.

During the pandemic she lived with her daughters, Grace (from her first marriage) and Winnie (from her marriage to Vickery), while her older twin sons Harry and Jack have flown the nest.

A sparklingly brilliant short story from the wonderfully warm and wise Fern BrittonFern Britton weaves a warm and witty short story set in Cornwall, full of mischief and fun! In March 1998, her first book, Fern’s Family Favourites, was released and in October the following year, she launched her second book Winter Treats and Summer Delights.

I’d heard of Miss Crawford (Crawfie) before but don’t know her full or story or the scandal that happened later on in her life. Her biggest downfall seems to be what I would describe as her blind devotion both to her employers and the man, George Buthlay, whom she sets her heart upon.

That wasn’t, perhaps, the smartest thing to do, but when Diana died there was a certain age of women in this country who do feel as if we are his mother and we want him to be OK. I think she did it out of love for the royal family to help them get over a sticky moment in history, but it all backfired. Fern’s warmth, humour, empathy and compassion have made her incredibly popular and she has become a much sought after presenter.

And I loved the really fond memories, the close relationships that were formed as a result of the unique situations that the Royal Family live through as is dictated by their status and constitutional rules that history has lain down before them. She has also presented other programmes, like Coast to Coast People, The Television Show and Magic Moments.
