Cambridge-Abel Smith Balcombe wedding, 1931 - bridesmaids

The twelve bridesmaids in attendance at the wedding of Lady May Cambridge and Captain Henry Abel Smith at Balcombe church, 1931. The celebration of such an exalted wedding in a village church was quite unusual, with three of the bridesmaids being royal-Princess Elizabeth(later Queen Elizabeth II of England), Princess Ingrid of Sweden and Princess Sybilla of Saxe Coburg Gotha. The little bridesmaids, including Princess Elizabeth, wore fur coats with nigella blue dresses with tiny tight fitting bodices beneath, with caps of latticed blue velvet, and silver shoes. Date: 24th October 1931
