The wedding took place 26 April, 1923. The young couple became the Duke and Duchess of York. There was no live broadcast of the event; the Archbishop of Canterbury was concerned that men might be listening in public houses - with their hats on! After the wedding the young couple honeymooned at a manor house in Surrey and then went to Scotland. In 1926 Elizabeth and Albert celebrated the birth of their first child, Elizabeth. Another daughter, Margaret-Rose, was born four years later.
