Major General Alexander Cambridge, 1st Earl of Athlone (Formerly Prince Alexander of Teck in the Kingdom of Württemberg), was the younger brother of Queen Mary (Queen Consort of King George V).In 1917 he had relinquished his German titles and assumed the name Cambridge and was created Earl of Athlone.

Between the wars he had been Governor-General of the Union of South Africa, and on the 21 June 1940, with the agreement of Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King became Governor General of Canada. Lord Athlone was very active in supporting the war effort by continuously inspecting troops, training schools, and military hospitals. As Governor General, Lord Athlone hosted Prime Minister Mackenzie King, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and American President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the Quebec Citadel on two separate occasions in 1943 and 1944. These meetings, known as the Quebec Conferences, helped decide the strategies of the Western Allies that would lead to victory over Nazi Germany and Japan in 1945.
