Wedding bells rang out again on November
6th 1935 when the Duke of Gloucester married Lady Alice Montague-Douglas-Scott.
The bride was born on Christmas Day 1901, the third daughter of the seventh
Duke of Buccleuch. The bridegroom was the third son of the King and Queen

father necessitated a change of plans and the marriage was solemnized
in the Private Chapel in Buckingham Palace.
