After looking at the wedding threads and royal brides newsletter, as I love the veil that Princess Elizabeth duchess of york wore to her wedding, I was wondering why neither of her daughters wore it? i heard it was given to her to wear by Queen Mary who wore it, here are some pictures
http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x...0729105209.jpg http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x...th_3270341.jpg http://i180.photobucket.com/albums/x...th_3301238.jpg
and I was wondering if this picture of the wedding of Princess Beatrice Mary Victoria , daughter of Queen Victoria marrying Prince Henry of Battenberg was the same veil
and if so, what ever happened to it? does the family still have it? why has no other British royal bride worn it since Queen Elizabeth(it seems?)
The first picture of Queen Elizabeth is not from her wedding. It was taken when she was a bridesmaid to her future sister-in-law, Princess Mary, later Countess of Harewood in 1922.
As to why, Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and their daughters didn't wear the same veil as Queen Elizabeth could be attributed to personal choice. They might have wanted to have their veil matching the dress and made by the same designer. It could also be that Queen Mary took back the veil worn by her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, Duchess of York, since it was really just lent to her, it wasn't given to her for forever.
Princess Beatrice for her wedding wore the same veil as her mother, Queen Victoria, the only one of Victoria's daughter's to do so. And, since the one worn by Elizabeth was lent to her by Queen Mary, who wore the veil worn by her mother, Princess Mary Adelaide. The veils really can't be the same.
Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and the Duke of York.
Elizabeth Bowes–Lyon (the recently deceased Queen Mother) married the Duke of York in 1923 with all the pomp and circumstance expected of royalty, despite the fact the she had twice refused his proposals.

And a colour photo, hosted at fashion-era. The dress was designed by Madame Handley Seymour, a former London court dressmaker to the dowager Queen Mary and it followed the essential fashions of the day, although it has never been considered memorable for its beauty.

I don't know if it's just the way they were trained to be photographed, but I don't get a feeling of happiness from the couple, at least not from her. Maybe I'm seeing that "she's just not that into him" from a historical perspective. It sounds like he went way beyond what should have been expected of a royal prince to win this bride. Kind of makes me wonder if she wouldn't have preferred to marry someone else like Jamie Stuart, or even the PoW himself.
She looks happy enough to me, especially on the Palace balcony. It was the style then to look grim in official photos (shutter time, maybe), and couples weren't expected to show a huge amount of affection.:flowers:
Maybe she's just wondering why they shoved her into an ugly dress!
It's really too bad she didn't have a more beautiful gown, some of the dresses of this period were so elegant. But I did like her cape, it looks like it was trimmed with ermine. And I think she was really a very pretty young woman, although she probably didn't meet the stereotypical idea of what a beauty was in the 1920s. (I think Wallis was probably more what was in vogue, the flatter, more angular shape.)
I wonder why she did'nt wear a tiara.Not really a fan of the dress.
I have always been disappointed by her dress it could have been so much nicer even the bridesmaids dresses were "simple" even for their time. Too simple. I think they look happy but not so much in the pictures but then no one looks happy in those from that time period for some reason. The tiara may not have gone with the style of veil.
