Some pictures and video of the wedding of Prince Arthur of Connaught and Princess Alexandra, (2nd) Duchess of Fife. Credit to The Royal Watcher.

Prince Arthur of Connaught and Princess Alexandra, (2nd) Duchess of Fife were first cousin once removed through Queen Victoria.

Queen Victoria --> Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught and Strathearn --> Prince Arthur of Connaught
Queen Victoria --> King Edward VII --> Louise, Princess Royal --> Princess Alexandra, (2nd) Duchess of Fife

P.s. It took me quite a while to find this thread, but I am very nevertheless

The bride's wedding dress was entrusted to the firm of Barolet, 51 Knightsbridge.
The long Court train was of white charmeuse.

Yes, it was because he was drunk. So sad especially when it’s your only child.
