Queen Mary approves design for Marina's gown

October 8, 1934

Queen Mary has approved the design for the wedding gown of Princess Marina of Greece, reports the Associated Press.

Princess Marina, the youngest daughter of Prince and Princess Nicholas, will marry Prince George in November.

The gown will be made from a "silver and white brocade with a flower design," and will feature a  15-feet train.  The sleeves of the gown will be "long, in medieval style."

Marina will wear a "handsome lace and white tulle veil, a treasured possession of the Greek Royal Family."  The veil was worn by her mother, Grand Duchess Helen of Russia, when she married Prince Nicholas, and by her elder sister, Princess Paul of Yugoslavia..
