Semi-protected edit request on 17 June 2015[edit]

There is nothing on this page regarding Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother's contribution to charity. She was a patron of the charity Queen Elizabeth's Foundation for Disabled People which is still running and still uses her name. She visited the charity eight times and attended more events to support the charity. This was a significant part of the Queen Mother's life and I feel it should be honoured. I have a lot of original photographs of her visits ranging from 1935 to 1998, please contact me at rachael.stamper@qef.org.uk and I would be happpy to share these photographs and prepare a paragraph about her time with QEF. — Preceding unsigned comment added by RachaelStamper (talkcontribs) 11:41, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Date/place of birth[edit]

I loved the old gal but The Queen Mother (Chapter: "The Most Wanted Angel", pp. 11-20, written by Lady Colin Campbell (I would trust nothing from the vile, repugnant Kitty Kelley) does make an extremely persuasive claim that Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was indeed born at St Paul's Walden Bury but on 3 August, not 4 August to the 13th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and a cook at St Paul's Walden Bury, Marguerite Rodiere, because Lady Glamis (the Earl's wife), having born eight children already, suffered from precarious health, particularly following the death of her daughter, Violet, and was told by doctors not to bear any more children. Should we add a footnote regarding this? Quis separabit? 19:47, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

The current footnote is more than enough to cover such a ridiculous suggestion. DrKay (talk) 20:00, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
I see a reference to the above was made. I tweaked and expanded same but not too dramatically. Quis separabit? 20:00, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
@DrKay -- stop engaging in censorship and let's discuss the matter calmly here. Quis separabit? 20:07, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
I haven't censored anything. You're the one removing sourced content. DrKay (talk) 20:09, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Content from bottom feeder Kitty Kelley and outlandish sites of birth that are geographically impossible given where her birth was registered and what that very same year's census indicated and the 1980 announcement from Clarence House!!! Quis separabit? 20:23, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Her birth was registered 6 weeks after her birth. This is well-documented and indeed is often used by biographers as evidence for subterfuge (even though such delays were not in fact uncommon). We can't select one source over another. The birthplace is uncertain and there is nothing wrong with the article using multiple sources or giving multiple potential locations, as the sources do. DrKay (talk) 20:27, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
Fine, but then please don't delete my sourced info, however distasteful you may find it. And, btw, why would they have told the census taker(s) the following year (1901) that she was born in St Paul's Walden Bury? Just curious. Quis separabit? 20:35, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
I reiterate: I have not removed sourced information. You did: [1][2] DrKay (talk) 20:45, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
