Re: Royal engagement rings

From Hugo Vickers's biography of Princess Alice. Her jewelry had been placed in a bank vault in Paris in 1930 in Andrea's name. Signatures from Philip and his sisters were required for her to get the items in 1947. She took the diamonds to the jeweler in London because Philip didn't want to be seen there. The jeweler said he had no idea who the ring was for.
