Smile Princess Elizabeth & the Duke of Edinburgh, 20 November 1947

I found some wonderful black and white photos of the wedding of QE II on Getty Images and I want to share them with everyone.

Princess Elizabeth enters Westminister Abbey on the arm of her father, King George VI. The detail in the picture is not that great :(

Princess Elizabeth and her father, King George VI, are surrounded by bridesmaids as they arrange Princess Elizabeth's veil and train before they walk down the aisle of Westminister Abbey.

Princess Elizabeth's bridal sandals - they are made with duchesse satin with silver buckles studded with small pearls.

Yes, that would be something worth waiting to see! I look forward to any and all royal celebrations (especially weddings !)

In the first, King George VI gives Princess Elizabeth's hand in marriage to Lt. Philip Mountbatten. The second photo is of the Dr. GeoffreyFisher, the Archbishop of Cantebury and Officiant at the Princess's wedding ceremony.

Smile Balcony shots

[FONT=Arial].......and what would a royal wedding be without all those endless photos of the happy (and maybe a tad exhausted!) newlywed couples waving from the balcony ?

The first photo is Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip (duh!) :)

The second photo is from left to right: King George VI, Princess Margaret Rose, Lady Mary Cambridge (behind Princess Margaret), the Princess Bride, the groom, Queen Elizabeth, and her mother Queen Mary.

The third photo shows the entire bridal party (not listed in order of appearance!) Princess Margaret Rose, Margaret Elphinstone, Diana Bowes-Lyon, Lady Caroline Montague Douglas-Scott, Lady Elzabeth Lambert, the Marquis of Milford-Haven, Lady Mary Cambridge and Lady Pamela Mountbatten. There are two train bearers and one is named Prince William but I don't know if that's him in this picture! :p

Smile Wedding Portrait

There is already a thread for official wedding portraits and of course, I've put one (maybe two, I can't remember!) of Princess Elizabeth's wedding party there somewhere on pages 4 and 5. Go over there and take a peek

I this is my personal favorite - it shows Princess Elizabeth beaming up at Prince Philip. The photo also show in detail that lovely 15 foot train.

Smile Wedding Gifts

As everyone knows, royal bridal couples receive a ton of gifts. These are just a few of the tonnage.

First photo: Princess Elizabeth's little sister, Princess Margaret Rose, gave her and Prince Philip this luxurious picnic box set.

Second photo: All newlywed couples need glassware to keep them from using old jelly jars for iced tea glasses :) Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip never had that problem. The glassware in the top row of the showcase are from the Crown Prince and Princess of Sweden. The glassware in the middle are President and Mrs. Truman, and other Americans. The glassware on the bottom shelf came from Czechoslovakia.

Third photo: The silver oval fruit dish came from a group of women in Twickenham who shared the Princess's names, Elizabeth, Alexandra, Mary.

The diamonds in the jewelry in this photo were given to Princess Elizabeth during a visit to South Africa. The tiara in the photo is QE II's favorite which she wears frequently :)

Smile This is the last wedding gift picture, I promise!

The Canadians gave the newlywed royal couple silver candlesticks and a chest of drawers.

Smile Engagement portraits

Two portraits of Princess Elizabeth and Lt. Philip Mountbatten.

In the black and white photo, their engagement portrait, you can see just a small glimpse of Princess Elizabeth's diamond engagement ring......

The color photo of the royal couple was taken shortly before their wedding.

I have always loved her train; I think it's one of my favorites.


I was trying to remember this story, but I'm not sure if I have it all correctly. Didn't some commoners give up their rations from the war to help make Elizabeth's dress?
