|Notes / History||Queen Henrietta Maria (played by Miss Davidson) is pictured here greeting Princess Marie (played by Tatiana Wiasemsky). Queen Henrietta, wife of Charles I, owned Wimbledon Park House in the 1600s, hence the local connection.
This was one of many tableaux depicting scenes from local history, part of the Historical Pageant staged at Wimbledon Park House in 1925. Proceeds from the Pageant were used to build a hall for Wimbledon Park.
