Week of 23 March 1953

Tuesday, 24 March

47 Hamilton Terrace

Reg slept here

Reg left at 8.30 for Ipswich where he was going for a walk along the river. He went as far as Freston.

Reg returned about 6 o'clock and told me of Queen Mary's sudden change for he worse, and the 9 o'clock news announced that her strength was ebbing and all the Royal Family had been to Marlborough House.

Wednesday, 25 March

Reg slept here

I heard on the 7 o'clock news that Queen Mary died last night very peacefully in her sleep at the age of 85.
