On this day 80 years ago, HRH Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, then fifth in line to the throne, married the Lady Alice Montagu-Douglas-Scott, daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and Queensbury.

Due to the recent death of Lady Alice's father, the wedding was moved from Westminster Abbey to the private chapel at Buckingham Palace.

A forthcoming issue of European History Journal will feature my article about this wedding.
