I think that the offers were turned down because it wasn't possible to accept them (it was illegal or something).
However, the government increased Elizabeth's rations so she could have a dress fit for a princess.

Some sources say Elizabeth was 13, Philip 18, when the royal family was visiting the naval academy (Dartmouth, I think. Correct me if I'm wrong). Others will say it was years earlier when Princess Marina of Greece married one of Elizabeth's uncles (George, Duke of Kent) in 1934. I believe that it's the first, as Elizabeth would have been only 8 at George and Marina's wedding.

It's always been listed in the "official" bios that she fell for him in 1939 at that visit to Dartmouth.

Her dad didn't want her to marry so young, and, according to some bios, thought Philip was uncouth, impoverished and poorly dressed. Her mother also thought she was too young. They wanted her to have a bit more fun before settling down because the years she would have been out having fun occurred during the war and recovery period.

Talking

Fifty-nine years is quite an accomplishment! They have certainly had their share of ups and downs over the years but to have endured as long as they have together is noteworthy in my opinion. Congratulations to them both.

Softly spaced throughout the richly embroidered white satin wedding dress were placed garlands of pearl, orange blossom, syringa, jasmine and white rose of york. These were skilfully combined with flowing lines of wheat ears (the symbol of fertility), worked in pearls. The design was repeated throughout the length of the fifteen foot train and repeated motifs of this embroidery bordered the sweetheart neckline, the long satin sleeves and the hem.

Similar motifs were also featured on the bridesmaids' dresses.In this photo hosted by fashion-era, we can see Princess Margaret wearing a dress with the motifs as those on her sister's dress:

Thank you for the video ladybelline.
It's the first time I actually saw the wedding, the bride & groom, especially the bride, looked so wonderful and so happy.

Here is a fine picture of Princess Elizabeth and Lt Mountbatten. You can see the wonderful detail of the dress very well here.

I love her wedding dress. My favorite royal Wedding dresses are definitely Princess Elizabeth, Grace Kelly, and CP Mette-Marit.

I was always struck by how matronly Elizabeth appeared in the engagement photos, although I did love her shoes.

But I think she was one of the most gorgeous royal brides, even if most of the photos are B&W.

I think it's remarkable that Queen Elizabeth only had one intended her entire life. I can see many people having only one love, but for her, there was never a doubt that Philip was the one since age 13. I doubt that she ever had even a crush on any other man.
