British Nobility. Younger daughter of Prince Adolphus, 1st Duke of Cambridge and Princess Augusta of Hesse-Cassel, she was born Her Royal Highness Princess Mary Adelaide Wilhelmina Elizabeth Guelph. She was ceaselessly popular with the public, and nicknamed Fat Mary for her very wide girth, prompting her first cousin, Queen Victoria to comment "The mob likes fat people". Mary had extravagent tastes in food, clothes, and jewels, and was the first of the royal family to patronize many charities. She married Francis of Teck, later Duke of Teck, on June 12, 1866. Together they had three sons and one daughter, Mary, who married Prince George, later King George V. Princess Mary died at White Lodge, Richmond Park, at the age of 64. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
