Re: Queen Wilhelmina in exile
She stayed at several places. Starting at Buckingham Palace as a guest of the king and queen. After that there was a townhouse in London that she used as an office later on and several places in the country.
According to her first cousin Princess Alice, countess of Athlone Wilhelmina was a difficult guest as she insisted on not being any trouble but that was much more difficult for accomplished hostesses than a guest that needed to be treated according their position and standing.
I think it was a house called Stubbings. It's just outside the town of Maidenhead in Berkshire, west of London.
It was probably a subject in some previous posts but I wanted to know where did she exactly live while in exile in the UK ?
In London ? In the country ?
In a flat ? In some manor house ? Private or Public ?
Thanks in advance
