I've seen the video of the wedding before. Massive crowds even in those days.

I think Queen Mary, Queen Mother, The Queen and Princess Margaret had the most regal royal waves in the old days. The royals of today royal waves are no longer regal.

Its somehow hard to fathom in this day of instant information but back then, those Pathe newsreels were what people would see when they went to a movie theater. Makes me realize how far we've some in such a relatively short time.

All the elements of a royal wedding were there. The crowds, the pageantry and the appearance on the balcony. Traditions are really a wonderful thing.

Thanks for posting the video of this wedding.

At Buckingham Palace, in the first weeks of the First World War, King George V ordered that there should be strict rationing of all food. Prince Henry put up a revolt against the two-course rule for breakfast. He claimed that for health reasons it was essential he had two fried eggs and bacon for breakfast even if he was allowed nothing else. Queen Mary agreed. Thus Prince Henry got an extra fried egg.

This is most surely a case of "if we only knew then what we know now" as we now know just how healthy fried eggs and bacon are to the human body.

Glad to see you back again Cyril! I've missed your interesting tidbits that you come up with.
