15 July, 1902
What a wonderful day yesterday. I do think I must be one of the luckiest women alive to have such an adorable, generous and loving husband as George. Each year we spend together seems even more happy than the one before.
I feel so spoilt. Such a fabulous birthday present - and so fashionable! I did not realise that George had the slightest notion of what was in or not in the world of fashion but then I suppose not even he could have missed the craze that the Duke of York has created by wearing that feather in his hat all the time.
I think the Maori chief gave it to him in Rotorua as a mark of his great importance and rank. And I feel so distinguished to have such a beautiful brooch. I'll be the envy of everyone I know. They are so prized and so hard to come by. I'll wear it every opportunity I get.
Oh, yes. George is such a wonderful man and I am the happiest of wives.
