A previously unseen drawing by a young Princess Elizabeth for Peter Pan author JM Barrie is coming back to the UK.<br />
<br />
The child's crayon picture of a house with lots of windows was sent to Barrie along with an apologetic letter from Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, in the 1930s.<br />
<br />
In it she harshly called the drawing "very poor" and said "Elizabeth insisted on putting in a roof with lots of little windows for the nurserymaid".<br />
<br />
The unique item had been owned by an American Anglophile for some years before it was put up for auction at Everard Auctions in Savannah, Georgia.<br />
<br />
It was bought by a British online bidder for £3,350.
