Despite her Serene Highness rank (her beloved father was the product of a morganatic marriage that left him questionably semi-royal), Princess Mary (May) of Teck was at first engaged, in 1891, to Prince "Eddy", Duke of Clarence, the elder son of the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII of the United Kingdom).
The duchess was her niece, the former Lady Mary Cambridge (1897-1987), elder daughter of Adolphus, 2nd Duke of Teck and 1st Marquess of Cambridge).
