EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the moment of love and excitement as the Duke of York, later King George VI (1895-1952), and his fiancée, Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (later Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, 1900-2002), pose for their engagement portrait in January 1923. The Duke, dressed in a smart tweed suit, gazes lovingly at his future bride, who wears a simple yet elegant dress and a demure hat. The couple's connection is palpable, and their happiness shines through in this beautiful image. The Duke and Lady Elizabeth's engagement was announced in November 1922, and their wedding took place on April 26, 1923, at Westminster Abbey. The union between the Duke, who was the second son of King George V, and the Scottish aristocrat, was a popular one, and their marriage brought a sense of warmth and normalcy to the British monarchy during a time of political and social change in the 1920s. Lady Elizabeth, who was born Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon, was known for her grace, intelligence, and compassion, and she became a beloved figure in the United Kingdom and around the world. She served as Queen Consort during her husband's reign from 1936 to 1952 and continued to be an influential and respected figure until her death in 2002 at the age of 101. This photograph is a precious piece of royal history, capturing the essence of a love story that began in the 1920s and continued to inspire generations to come.
