The Duke and Duchess of York on their honeymoon
Marriage
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.
