Lady May Cambridge | Abel-Smith | Wedding Royal Marriage | Jewels
The daughter of Princess Alice Countess of Athlone and the Earl of Athlone, who arrived ten minutes late, broke a centuries-old tradition by omitting the word ‚obey‘ from the marriage vows, this being because, after aconsultation with her parents , she adopted the service from the new PrayerBook, which does not contain this word,thereby establishing an innovation for royal brides.
‚Lady May Will Not Obey‘ was the tactless page-wide rhyme with which an evening paper headed the account of the ceremony.In the presence of the Queen, the Prince of Wales, Prince George, the Duke of Gloucester, the Duchess of York and other members of the Royal family, .
Thousands of sightseers from every where concentrated in Balcombe village
early this morning, and cheers, drowning the. pealing of the bells, greeted the
Queen, the Prince of Wales and Princess Alice as they walked up the church path.
Distant trumpets heralded the approach of the bride in a dark-blue car,. in which she sat with her parents, clasping the hand of her soldier father,the Earl of Athlone, as she passed
through a two-mile avenue of cheering well-wishers. Her bouquet comprised lilies of the valley and her pale satin gown looked like lily petals. She was a lily bride more about the Jewels and royal wedding gifts
