This portrait silk depicts Queen Mary as H.R.H. THE DUCHESS OF CORNWALL AND YORK, the official title, which was woven across the bottom of the silk.
The short title DUCHESS OF YORK was first listed on label 31+39.
The same picture was also issued with the amended title H.R.H. THE PRINCESS OF WALES in 1901 (see so552).
