A Greek Orthodox Nun in Buckingham Palace: Mother Superior Alice-Elizabeth, Princess of Battenberg and Mother-in-Law of Queen Elizabeth II

Archbishop Chrysostomos

Number XLVII of Monographic Supplement Series

“[...T]hough an Orthodox nun, Princess Alice was also a westerner and, as was the case with many of the members of the royal families of Orthodox kingdoms, such as Greece, Romania, Serbia, Bulgaria, and Russia, a relative (a great-granddaughter) of Queen Victoria of England and a convert to the Orthodox Faith. Like her fellow Orthodox royals, her roots in the West and her important rôle in the life of the Orthodox monarchies of Eastern Europe bring together Orthodoxy and the remnants of western monarchy in a way that illuminates my examination of Eastern Christianity and its often ignored or forgotten wider influence and presence in today’s non-Orthodox world. My narrative of the life of Mother Alice-Elizabeth is of course informed by a number of published books and articles about her or her family that I have carefully read and studied. My selective presentation and arrangement of such material, however, has been shaped by information and impressions collected from those who either knew her or her intimates and who appreciated her spiritual pursuits. This is seldom the case with the little that has been written about her. Indeed, biases and prejudices of various kinds, as well as political considerations, have long colored public perceptions of the Princess, and especially qua nun.”
