Cheering the post-war gloom was the marriage of the Heir-Presumptive
Princess Elizabeth to the former Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten and now
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
(Appendix List No. 134). In the magazine
we see the couple drawn to Westminster Abbey in the Irish State Coach;
the actual marriage ceremony; the bridal cortege and royal procession;
the drive back to Buckingham Palace in the Glass Coach; the Royal Family
wedding groups and the honeymoon journey to Broadlands Park, Hampshire.
Of course, all the bridal gifts are shown and we have full biographies
of the couple.
