Edwina was an interesting woman. Very cultured and articulate. Noted for her friendships with Nehru and Ghandi.

And her wartime service was amazing!

So four of the bridesmaids were Prince Philip's sisters, by the looks of it.

What is the tiara that Edwina is wearing? It looks beautiful and quite large.

I don't think that's a tiara but rather a headdress that was popular for fashionable brides during the 1920s. I've seen them in other wedding portraits from that time.

Thanks for loading those pics. Love seeing a wedding that is so of its time - proper 20's. Of the others of the era: Eliz B-L got it so wrong in her attacked by the lace number, and Pss Mary was better, but a bit plain. Edwina showed em, my God they were a glamorous couple weren't they? But then their marriage was fraught with infidelity and mistust. What price glamour eh, royal watchers?

I also think these pictures are gorgeous, and I'm a big fan of period fashion. I do, however, find the headwear of this bridal party a little...er...distressing.

Wow, the then POW was tiny. Look how much taller the bride is.

Edwina always wore quite high heels. :biggrin: They are one of my favourite couples, both of them were just gorgeous looking. Here's a link to British Pathe were you can watch footage of the wedding and many stills:
