The Royal Wedding Of Lady May Cambridge (1931)

Lady May Cambridge, daughter of Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone and the Earl of Athlone, the only surviving brother of Queen Mary, married Captain Henry Abel Smith in October 1931. It was an country wedding at the village church of St Mary, Balcombe, Sussex.

Her wedding dress was of soft white Windsor satin with a cross-over bodice and true-lover's knot of orange blossoms at the left side, the skirt was cut entirely on the bias and fell to the feet in full godet folds. From the hips the satin flowed out into a five-feet long train of the same satin. It was half covered by a lovely Honiton lace veil, lent by the Queen (Mary), who had worn it at her own marriage, as had Princess Alice at her wedding.


This was arranged as a cap over the fair hair of the bride and had a simple wreath of orange blossoms. She also wore a small veil of ivory tulle, which she discarded after the ceremony.
Lady May carried a lilies-of-the-valley bouquet, with  the flowers presented to her on arrival and tied with silver ribbon. On the ribbon was a horseshoe made of myrtle, cut from the tree grown from a sprig taken from the wedding bouquet of Queen Victoria. Lady May's only jewel was a pearl necklace

Behind Lady May walked her 12 attendants; an impressive group with Princess Elizabeth of York (making first real public appearance), Princess Ingrid of Sweden, Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and Lady Alice Scott, wearing long, graceful dresses of velvet in a lovely shade of Nigelta blue. The dresses of the grown-up bridesmaids were cut on long, flowing lines
to mould to their figures, with ankle-length skirts flaring towards the hems. The bodices were draped into a soft cowl effect in front, and the long, close-fitting sleeves were puffed above the elbows. Two long lengths of the velvet were draped from either side and caught into a large bow at the back, forming a short train. Their shoes were of silver and bandeaux of folded velvet formed their headdresses. All carried sheaves of deep purple, blue and red anemones, and wore clear crystal necklaces, gifts from the bridegroom. The children walked together dressed in little Victorian frocks with tiny tightly-fitting bodices with short puff sleeves, the full skirts falling in folds to their ankles. They wore Juliet caps of latticed blue velvet ribbon.

The wedding ring was of platinum which the bride placed beside her large oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds.
The Royal Wedding presents arrived at Kensington Palace, where Lady May's parents lived. Among the wedding presents which numbered nearly six hundred, that Lady May Cambridge received, were

Long Diamond Chain Necklace and Drop Pendant which can be divided up into two bracelets, and a smaller necklace, or four bracelets from The King and Queen Mary

Diamond Pendant from the groom to the bride

Diamond tiara>> Mrs. Francis Abel Smith it must be the tiara with diamond spikes

Diamond Bandeau which can be converted in two bracelets Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone and the Earl of Athlone

Gold three-fold mirror Lord and Lady Carnegie.

The antique pendant above with the round sapphire was later in the possession of Lady May Abel Smith and once owned by her mother, Princess Alice. It was auctioned in 1974 for $17 250 USD along with a pair of two important sapphire brooches for $4600 USD.
