They're your nieces - daughters of your favourite brother.'It's wicked and it's cold-hearted and it's cruel and it's entirely in keeping with the ruthlessness which I myself have experienced in this family. The Netflix drama suggests the Queen (pictured on Sunday) swallowed the line that the sisters were dead. It's not clear when she discovered the truth, but following a Channel 4 documentary in 2012 she was upset by suggestions they'd been abandoned'If you're not first in line, if you're an individual character with individual needs or, God forbid, an irregular temperament... then you'll be spat out, or you'll be hidden away or worse: Declared dead. Darwin had nothing on you lot — shame on all of you.' Who was John Bowes-Lyon - the Queen's uncle? John Bowes-Lyon was the second son of the 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne and the Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorne. His sister Elizabeth later become Queen Elizabeth.He was educated at Eton and Oxford University, and worked as a stockbroker in the City of London for the firm Rowe and Pitman before the outbreak of WWI. He married Fenella Hepburn-Stuart-Forbes-Trefusis, the younger daughter of 21st Baron Clinton in September 1914.The couple had five children; their firstborn, Patricia Bowes-Lyon, died in infancy. They went on to have Anne, Nerissa, Diana and Katherine. Anne married Lt.-Col. Thomas William Arnold Anson, Viscount Anson in 1938 but the couple divorced in 1948 after having two children. She remarried Prince George Valdemar of Denmark in September 1950.Diana Married Peter Gordon Colin Somervell in February 1960 and their daughter Katherine Somervell is a god-daughter of Queen Elizabeth II.When it was revealed Nerissa and Katherine had been placed in Earlswood Hospital, suggestions of a royal cover-up were rejected in the press by Lord Clinton, who claimed his aunt Fenella had completed the form for Burke's Peerage incorrectly due to her being 'a vague person'. However, Burke's Peerage included specific dates of death for both sisters.According to the Channel 4 documentary about the sisters, throughout their time at the hospital there is no known record that the sisters were ever visited by any member of the Bowes-Lyon or royal families.It's thought the sisters' symptoms were due to a genetic condition from their mother's bloodline, not that of the Bowes-Lyon.Katherine and Nerissa had three cousins in The Royal Earlswood - Edonea, Rosemary and Etheldreday, the daughters of Fenella's sister Harriet - who shared their disabilities.John Bowes-Lyon died at the family home of Glamis Castle in February 1930 of pneumonia, aged 44. His widow was a leading guest at the Queen's wedding to Prince Philip in 1947. adverts.addToArray({"pos":"mpu_factbox"})Advertisement The Crown does appear to use artistic licence in its fictional retelling of the saga as it implies the Queen Mother was involved from the start.However, a newspaper claimed in 1996 that she was unaware of their existence until 1982, when she received a letter from the institution's league of friends. Afterwards she reportedly sent a four-figure sum to fund Christmas and birthday presents for the pair - but there is no evidence the royals visited them.The Netflix drama also suggests the Queen swallowed the line that the sisters were dead. It's not clear when she discovered the truth, but following a Channel 4 documentary in 2012 she was upset by suggestions they'd been abandoned. It's also unknown whether Princess Margaret found out about her cousins and confronted her mother; it's certainly unlikely she was told of their plight by her therapist, as is the case in The Crown. Nerissa was born in 1919, and Katherine in 1926. Their father was John Bowes-Lyon, one of the Queen Mother’s older brothers and a son of the Earl of Strathmore. John died in 1930 and was survived, until 1966, by the girls’ mother, Fenella.The sisters were unfortunate to have been born in an era when mental disability was seen as a threat to society and linked to promiscuity, feckless breeding and petty crime, the characteristics of the underclass; associations encouraged by popular belief in the science of eugenics, soon to be embraced by the Nazis.For the Bowes-Lyons, this was a stigma that could threaten their social standing and taint the marital prospects of their other children. Nerissa and Katherine’s beautiful and healthy sister Anne became a princess of Denmark by her second marriage; by her first marriage, she was Viscountess Anson and mother of the society photographer, the late Lord Lichfield.Their admission to the asylum was also deemed necessary when, in 1923, their aunt Elizabeth married the future King George VI.The shocking story of their incarceration came to light shortly after Nerissa's death, when journalists discovered she was buried in a grave marked only by a plastic name-tag and a serial number.  The ensuing scandal, which prompted an anonymous source to provide a gravestone for Nerissa, made little difference to her sister’s life. Katherine received no visitors at the asylum, and as her aunt, the Queen Mother, lived on into cosseted old age, she did not possess even her own underwear – at least until her final years there – and had to dress from a communal wardrobe. In The Crown the Queen Mother attempts to defend the cruel steps, telling Princess Margaret: 'I went from being the wife of the Duke of York, leading a relatively normal life, to being Queen.'At the same time my family, the Bowes-Lyons, went from being minor Scottish aristocrats to having a direct bloodline to the crown, resulting in the children of my brother paying a terrible price.'Their illness, their imbecility - their professionally diagnosed idiocy and imbecility - would make people question the integrity of the bloodline. 'Can you imagine the headlines if it were to get out? The idea that one family alone has the automatic birthright to the crown is already so hard to justify, the gene pool of that family better have 100 per cent purity. The Duke of York, later King George VI, with his wife Elizabeth, then Duchess of York, and their daughters Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) and Margaret The shocking story of their incarceration came to light shortly after Nerissa's death, when journalists discovered she was buried in a grave marked only by a plastic name-tag and a serial number'There have been enough examples on the Windsor side alone to worry people... if you add the Bowes-Lyon illnesses to that, the danger is it becomes untenable.' It's thought the sisters' symptoms were due to a genetic condition from their mother's bloodline, not that of the Bowes-Lyon.  Katherine and Nerissa had three cousins in The Royal Earlswood - Edonea, Rosemary and Etheldreday, the daughters of Fenella's sister Harriet - who shared their disabilities. When Charles and Diana wed in July 1981, Katherine and Nerissa are said to have watched the ceremony excitedly on TV.Years later Onelle Braithwaite, one of the nurses who cared for them, remarked: 'I remember pondering with my colleague how, if things had been different, they would surely have been guests at the wedding.'Speaking in the Channel 4 documentary, she added: 'Today they’d probably be given speech therapy and they’d communicate much better. 'They understood more than you'd think. It was so sad. Just think of the life they might have had. They were two lovely sisters.'The Royal Earlswood was closed in 1997; at least one former nurse has alleged patients were abused. The grandiose building has since been converted into luxury apartments.
