Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon Marries Albert, Duke of York

When Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon married Albert, the younger brother of the Prince of Wales, on April 26, 1923, she did not expect that she would end up a Queen. In this photograph: King George V of Great Britain (right) and Queen Mary. Center are the future King George VI and Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon. On the left are the Earl and Countess of Strathmore, Elizabeth's parents.

We recently came across a gorgeous historical royal print. Here's the information we found on it on The Intrepid. "When war was looming overhead in 1939, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth toured Canada by train to improve relations. The trip was a huge success. Thousands of Canadians came out to cheer, and hopefully catch a glimpse of the royal couple. This image, which was recently discovered, was taken by official CN Railway photographer William H. Robinson at Jasper Park Lodge in 1939."

Diana's parents on their wedding day, of which 9 members of the Royal family attended including the late Queen Mum and present Queen. Bride, 18 year old Frances Roche, wore the Spencer tiara to marry 30 year old Viscount "Johnnie" Spencer, heir to the Althrop earldom. Frances was the youngest bride to be married at Westminster since the turn of the century and one of only a privileged few allowed to marry each year in the Abbey. In 1954, it was described as the wedding of the year.
