The Duchess of York and her second daughter, Princess Margaret Rose. 

Bertie and I have decided now to call our little daughter ‘Margaret Rose’ instead of M. Ann as Papa does not like Ann. I hope that you will like it. I think that it is very pretty together.” – The Duchess of York in a letter to her mother-in-law, Queen Mary, on 6 September 1930, after the princess’ birth on 21st August 1930.
