EDITORS COMMENTS
A Royal Gathering: The Elphinstone Wedding, 1946 This enchanting photograph captures a significant moment in royal history, the wedding of Andrew Elphinstone to Mrs. Vicary Gibbs, held in June 1946. The event was graced by the presence of several members of the British Royal Family, making it a truly memorable occasion. At the heart of the image, we find Princess Elizabeth, who served as chief bridesmaid for the nuptials. The future Queen Elizabeth II, dressed in a beautiful white dress and a wreath of flowers in her hair, looks radiant and full of joy. Her elegant bridesmaid's gown, adorned with lace and ribbons, perfectly complements her youthful beauty. Among the other distinguished guests were King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother), who are seen conversing with the King of the Hellenes, King Paul I. The King and Queen's presence at the wedding foreshadowed the union of their eldest daughter, Princess Elizabeth, with Prince Philip of Greece, who is also featured in the photograph. Prince Philip, later to be known as the Duke of Edinburgh, stands beside his future wife, wearing the uniform of the Greek Navy. The couple's connection would grow stronger throughout the year, culminating in their wedding on November 20, 1947. The wedding of Andrew Elphinstone and Mrs. Vicary Gibbs was a joyous occasion that brought together the royal family in celebration. This image provides a glimpse into the past, offering a fascinating look at the lives of the royals during this period of history.
