Yes - he married Princess Louise who was created The Princess Royal by her father after the death of his sister Vicky.

So she was The Princess Royal and her husband was The Duke of Fife and hence the naming of the memorial park after the husband and wife.

Huge smiles from both ladies. I'm reading it as mutual respect. Endearing photos and to be honest, I'm not a long-time fan of Angelina. But I am warming to her.

If you look at the right hand corner where it shows what's next in the Gallery, there are two different pictures of the Order insignia in it's box. One close up of the Order in the box and the other is not as close in order to show the box as well.

That is a gorgeous set of insignia. Really gorgeous!!

Angelina might have been more than a little wild in her youth, but she has matured and grown into a beautiful, elegant, and very admirable woman who is using her position and influence to do a great deal of good. She was perfectly dressed for the occasion, too, and I love her hairdo.
