Read on for article

Few people have heard of the Queen’s mother-in-law, Princess Alice, but her life story almost defies belief.

The mother of Prince Philip, Alice married into the Greek royal family, only to see the Greek monarchy overthrown by revolution. Fleeing into exile, she suffered a severe nervous breakdown, before being admitted to a mental hospital where she was treated by Sigmund Freud. Later, she hid Jews from the Nazis in World War Two, gave away all her possessions to help the poor, and founded her own religious order.
