When King George V and Queen Mary visited the Cadbury works, George Cadbury led the way with the queen while his wife walked behind with the king. Cadbury had removed his hat as a mark of respect for royalty. It was, however, very cold, and Queen Mary was concerned lest the old man should get a chill. “Mr. Cadbury, please put on your hat,” she said. George Cadbury demurred. “Please, Mr. Cadbury—or I'll ask the king to command you to do so!” Her host still hesitated. Then from behind them came the ringing tones of Elizabeth Cadbury: “George, put your hat on.” He did.
