Has the Prince of Wales found his bride?

July 18, 1922

Lord Louis Mountbatten seemed to be "inconspicuous" at his own wedding due to the fact that his best friend, the Prince of Wales, was the "center of attention."  There was also "considerable speculation" on the Prince's own marriage, and would he, too, soon "be marching up the altar."

Many in the congregation had their eyes on Lady Rachel Cavendish, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.  Lady Rachel, one of guests at the wedding, appears often "at the head of the list" of eligible women.  The eyes of many of the guests "wandered eagerly between the prince and Lady Rachel in search of any little clue" of affection between them.
