A rare and amusing insight into the domestic life of the Royal household during the early 20th century has emerged through the archive of a servant.
Jean Barlerin was sent notes from King George V and Queen Mary complaining about some of the food served up to them.
One note stated: "The plain rolls on board Britannia yesterday for tea were very tough."
Another read: "The King & Queen do not want any more of these biscuits ordered as they do not like them."
One of the 60 scraps of paper kept by Jean included a bizarre exchange about the provenance marmalade served to the Duke of Connaught - the third son of Queen Victoria.
