The marriage of Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyons (Later the Queen Mother) to the Duke of York (Later King George VI) at Westminster Abbey in London, on this day 26th April, 1923. It was the first royal wedding at the Abbey since 1383. The newly formed British Broadcasting Company wanted to record and broadcast the event on radio, but the Abbey Chapter vetoed the idea.
"You don’t see the Queen crying very often. This was the first Remembrance Day service after her mother died – the Queen mother used to lay the wreath every year. The Queen stood in for her and was visibly upset. I felt quite emotional as I saw the tears roll down her face. Prince Philip has laid the wreath ever since." - Kent Gavin, the photographer.
