Yep, the bridesmaid does indeed look familiar! I wonder how many times the Queen was a bridesmaid in total.

You can understand the huge waiting crowds in this case. In a pre-television age this was a chance to see masses of British and foreign royalty as the bride was the neice of Queen Mary and the granddaughter of prince Leopold of Albany. They would be able to see the Yorks, and little bridesmaid Elizabeth, and other members of the Royal family like the Duke of Kent.

This was the wedding in which Prince Gustav Adolf of Sweden was introduced by his sister Princess Ingrid to her fellow bridesmaid Princess Sybilla of Saxe-Coburg Gotha. The couple got on well and later married. Sybilla was cousin to Lady May.

As a wedding gift Lady May received a diamond fringe tiara from her mother-in-law, Mrs. Francis Abel Smith. She received a necklace of a marquise diamond chain and pendant in Art Deco Style from King George V and Queen Mary.

I've read somewhere that Gustav Adolf found out that Ingrid had plans to introduce him to some German princess and refused to go. Ingrid complained to their grandfather Gustav V who liked her idea and ordered him to go.

Lady May's mother Princess Alice was a full cousin to Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands. Alice's mother Helena zu Waldeck und Pyrmont was the sister of Wilhelmina's mother Emma zu Waldeck und Pyrmont.
