When I was living in what was then called Lourenšo Marques in Mozambique I was living in a street called Princess Patricia Street, I had to ask who it was named after at the time as I had no idea, and it was exactly this Princess shown in that lovely wedding photo. It is nice to see her at last.

Who is the girl next to the groom? It's so unusual to see a member of a royal wedding party with long, loose hair. Are my eyes playing tricks on me?

yes she's got her hair down and I think it's Mary, Princess Royal even though she wasn't called that then. not sure but the age and nose fit and she was a bridesmaid at that wedding

Princess Mary is on Patricias right. I believe the girl on Alexanders right is one of his relatives. I've seen a picture where everyone is identified, I'll have to see if I can find it. The smaller girl is Princess Ingrid of Sweden.

I found the picture and she is identified as Lady Ida Ramsay

Is the Connaught Fringe Tiara still in Lady Patricia Ramsay's family? I saw a photograph of Lady Patricia wearing the Connaught Fringe Tiara at the coronation of King George VI in 1937.

There is nothing known about a sale of this tiara. So it could still be in the Family. But it also could have been sold privately.

The usual crowds on what looks like quite a chilly day in February. Many men still in uniform, and a full roll-up of royalty. Apart from Patricia being the Duke of Connaught's daughter and a popular figure in Canada, really all I know about this union is that it was the first royal wedding to take place in Westminster Abbey since Tudor times and that Lady Pat renounced her styling of Princess for the rank of Duke's daughter. At 32 she was quite an old bride by the Royal standards of the day, and produced one child, Alexander, who was born later that year.
