 Queen Mary
Born Her Serene Highness Princess Victoria Mary Augusta Louise Olga Pauline Claudine Agnes of Teck at Kensington Palace, the daughter of the impoverished Francis, Duke of Teck, she was a great-granddaughter of King George III and a first cousin once removed of Queen Victoria.
Her mother was Queen Victoria's first cousin, Princess Mary Adelaide of Cambridge, a rather short, vastly stout royal popularly and apparently happily known as "Fat Mary" ("The mob like fat people," Queen Victoria reportedly said of her 200-plus-pound cousin's ceaseless celebrity).
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).

 Royal Styles and the uses of "Highness"
Following 1917 the style of Highness was dropped in the British Royal family and the title of prince/princess only allowed for the issue of the sovereign and for the grandchildren in the male line of a sovereign (with the addition of the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales).
By the letters patent of 1917 all titles of Royal Highness not borne under the above terms, and all titles of Highness and Serene Highness, ceased to be used, except in the cases of those titles already granted and remaining unrevoked.
Highness (højhed) is used by all other members of the royal family, i.e., grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc., of a monarch (as long as they are members of the royal family, i.e., that their marriages have been approved by the Council of State).

Turning from the dress to photographs of Kelly, groom Prince Rainier III and the rest of the wedding party in Monaco, April 19, 1956, I realized that, though Kelly's reputed 5-foot, 6-inch frame was petite, the actress gained presence from a head proportionately larger than that of the mannequin on which the costume is shown.

Lyngstad's marriage to Plauen gave her the title of Her Serene Highness Princess Anni-Frid Reuss von Plauen, and through her late husband who was a student at the same boarding school as the reigning King of Sweden she became acquainted with the Swedish Royal family and eventually became close friends with Sweden's Queen Silvia.
Lyngstad was born out of wedlock in Ballangen, near Narvik, Norway, as a result of a liaison between her mother Synni Lyngstad and a married German sergeant, Alfred Haase, during the Second World War German occupation of Norway.
