The pretty debutante captured the eye of the King’s son Albert
Young woman
The pretty Elizabeth spent much of her time mixing with the highest in society. One of Elizabeth’s friends, Lady Buxton, cheerfully predicted that she would break many hearts. One man who was entranced was Prince Albert, the second son of George V. He would later become King George VI. A shy suitor, Prince Albert was drawn to Elizabeth's outgoing nature. He proposed several times. Finally his devotion paid off and she agreed to marry him in January 1923.
