The couple had four children, the eldest of whom was Princess May of Teck, the future Queen Mary, consort of King George V. Affectionately known as 'Fat Mary' by the public, due to her considerable girth, she was a popular member of the royal family and involved herself in numerous charities. Date: 1866

ILN page on submarine hunting sea lions, WW1

A remarkable naval experiment came to light after the war was over, deemed so unlikely that when The Illustrated London News first heard of it, they believed it to be a hoax. The suggestion that attempts were made to train sea lions were trained to hunt submarines, did seem far-fetched. However, after a thorough investigation, they were satisfied with its authenticity enough to publish a lavish spread on it in April 1919. In the summer of 1917 the Admiralty hit on a novel way of hunting submarines. It was simply to employ tame sea-lions (Otaria Gillespie) to track them down-the idea being that the sea-lion could be taught to distinguish the noise of a submarines propeller and to follow it in the hope of getting food. A buoy would be attached to the animal, and a trawler would follow the buoy and drop a depth charge when the sea-lion appeared to have found the submarine.
