When Britain's King Edward VIII abdicated in 1937, thus interrupting the line of succession within the Windsor household, all eyes quickly settled on his younger brother George as he made ready for his coronation. It was natural that numerous articles began to also appear concerning George's eldest daughter Elizabeth, and to openly muse as to what sort of a monarch she would one day be. Yet what seemed most unnatural in journalistic circles took place five years earlier when King George V still ruled - in the Vanity Fair issue of November, 1932, (page 42) the editors of that society rag were so smitten by the six-year-old Elizabeth that they took it upon themselves to predict that regardless of her place in the hierarchy, Elizabeth would one day be "Queen of England and Empress of India." (!)

"The Elizabeth has not been told she will reign as Queen, court gossips have already speculated on her future husband. Prince Charles of Luxembourg, nine; Prince Gorm, seventeen and Prince Olaf, thirteen, of Denmark; Prince Philippe of Greece, fifteen, and Prince William Victor, seventeen-year-old grandson of of the ex-Kaiser, have all been mentioned as possible consorts of the child - if there is any royalty left by then."
