The Queen Mother

The Queen Mother: The Official Biography - 

William Shawcross

On being pregnant with the future Queen Elizabeth II:


"'The sight of wine simply turns me up! Isn’t it extraordinary?’ she wrote to her husband in September. ‘It will be a tragedy if I never recover my drinking powers.’ She need not have worried."



Very tame, but then again it's an official biography. Still, The Queen Mother did write very entertaining letters.
