    Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon originally turned down "Bertie's" proposal in 1921 because she did not want the limitations on her life that being a member of the royal family would bring. But the prince was stubborn, and said that he would not marry anyone else. Lady Elizabeth was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Albert's sister, Princess Mary, in 1922. He proposed to her again, but she did not accept until January, 1923.
