Found this quite by accident but it's rather sad. It's the speech given by Winston Churchill in the House of Commons when the Duke of Kent died. Very moving and typically Winston.

Sir Winston always spoke with such amazing class. His memorial to the Duke was extremely moving but what else could one expect from Churchill. He was wonderful.

I find this wedding picture interesting bacause we can see there Marina surrounded by some of her not yet married cousins at the time.

From left by right, the Princesses are recognized : Catherine of Greece, Ingrid of Sweden, Eugénie of Greece, Kira of Russia, Irène of Greece, sister of Catherine, and Juliana of the Netherlands.

All, with Catherine share which will be only Lady Brandram, will marry a member of foreign Royal Family.

Yes...thank you Geli. I've always wondered who are bridesmaids were. Is this the same Ingrid of Sweden who will become Queen of Denmark, Margethe's mother?

The Duke of Kent actually romanced Parincess Ingrid before his marraige. I saw an old newsreel from the early 1930's in a documentary about him showing he and Ingrid doing some sort of engagement together and the newscastor was talking about how marraige was in the air but of course it didn't happen. The documentary was called The Queen's Lost Uncle or something like that.

That's funny because I heard that Ingrid's husband, King Frederik was once engaged to Princess Marina.

Just like her daughter, Princess Alexandra, Princess Marina's looks improved with age. As a young woman she wasn't really that striking, but when she matured she was incredibly lovely looking.

Almost, Frederik was engaged to Marina´s sister, Princess Olga, in the 20-ties. Olga broke of the engagement as she disapproved of his heavy drinking and later married Prince-regent Paul of Yougoslavia.
