Margaret Evelyn Cambridge, Marchioness of Cambridge (8 April 1873 – 27 March 1929) was the sixth child and third daughter of the 1st Duke of Westminster and the wife of the 1st Marquess of Cambridge. She was known before her marriage as The Lady Margaret Grosvenor, and after it she was also known as Princess Adolphus of Teck and later The Duchess of Teck.


In 1900, Prince Francis, Duke of Teck died, and Adolphus succeeded him as 2nd Duke of Teck. Margaret was now styled Her Serene Highness the Duchess of Teck. The Dukedom of Teck was a title in the Kingdom of Württemberg. In 1911, King George V awarded the Duke of Teck the style Highness as a gift on his coronation. From then on Margaret was known as Her Highness The Duchess of Teck.


Prince Adolphus saw active service with his regiment in the Second Boer War, and his wife joined him in South Africa in April 1900, travelling there on the SS Dunottar Castle with her two sisters the Marchioness of Ormonde and Lady Chesham.


During World War I, anti-German feeling in the United Kingdom led King George V to change the name of the royal house from the Germanic House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to the more English sounding, House of Windsor. The King also renounced all his Germanic titles for himself and all members of the British Royal Family who were British subjects.


In response to this, Adolphus renounced his title of Duke of Teck in the Kingdom of Württemberg and the style His Highness. Adolphus, along with his brother, Prince Alexander of Teck, adopted the name Cambridge, after their grandfather, Prince Adolphus, Duke of Cambridge.


He was subsequently created Marquess of Cambridge, Earl of Eltham, and Viscount Northallerton in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. Margaret from then on became The Marchioness of Cambridge. Their elder son took the title Earl of Eltham as a courtesy title. The younger children became Lord/Lady (Christian Name) Cambridge.


After World War I the couple made their home at Shotton Hall, near Shrewsbury, England, until after her husband's death in 1927. His elder son, the Earl of Eltham, succeeded him as Marquess of Cambridge. Lady Cambridge survived him by two years, and died on 27 March 1929 in London. She was buried beside her husband at the Royal Burial Ground, Frogmore.
